I may have posted this along time ago, but don't remember the responses. I need some suggestions for getting my hair to grow healthier and longer. I have really thin, fine hair, it is right above my shoulders, but has no volume. I heard the hsn hair and nail vitamins are good. Is there anything I can do to make it grow with leaps and bounds LOL thanks

PRE-NATAL VITAMINS- Took them when I was pregnant of course. My nails and hair grew so fast. I have very fine naturally curly hair and my hair never will grow past my shoulders. I think it kind of breaks off there and gets really thin and scraggly so I have to keep getting it trimmed. BUT while I was on those vitamins my hair grew so fast it didn't have time to break off. It just grew past my shoulders so quickly. I don't think it could hurt someone to take them without being pregnant but I would ask a doctor or pharmacist first just to be sure. Also I 've heard that massaging your scalp helps-Good Luck

I started taking Perfectil (a vitamin tablet) last week (Tuesday) and my hair has grown an inch and a half in that time. My hair usually grows an inch per month. It's a little too early to tell if it's making my hair thicker (I'm in NYC and it's been raining and that tends to "swell up" my hair). My nails have grown faster this week.

My nails have grown faster this week. i took perfectil too last summer - i remember that my nails got really healthy but i can't remember what happened to my hair - wish i could! wow your hair grew sooooo long! mine would take months to grow that fast! i am currently on Roaccutane so I'm kind of scared to take pills that might affect my skin too but i will be discussing this with my derm next week!

My hair is thining so bad in the top I've been thinking of a transplant.

I heard ominilife has a product that has grown hair even in old bald men
I may consider trying that first.

i'm taking Roaccutane for my acne problem - i'm due to get off it next week after being on them for 8 months!

I had read an article in "Shop Etc." a while ago, I think it was called "Do these pills work?" or something like that. Well, they had a tester try out Perfectil and she said it really did work and it grew her hair out and made it thicker. They cost around $20.00, but I got mine on sale for $16.00.

In the October issue of Vogue, there is an article called "Rapunzel Calling" and it talks about the new long hair trend. In the article, a hairdresser recommends Viviscal tablets to celebrities to get their hair to grow out really fast. It said it costs $80.00 for a month supply. It grows hair longer, but not thicker. The Viviscal is mentioned on page 398.

My dermatologist prescribed Pantogar to me - i have to take 1 tablet 3 times a day. I hope this works in making my hair stronger and nicer. It says it will take 3 months to start seeing results. I just have to be patient and I'm doing loads of treatments too which should help.

I didn't find much info on the net about Pantogar though apart from its website.

My family has a genetic hair thinning problem, and we have seen specialists, I was told to take biotin. It didnt help, but my hair isnt too bad yet. My mom takes it and it doesnt help either. I can run my fingers through my hair and clumps come out, everyone says there is nothing we can do
My brother started going bald in high school. I may try some of those other vitamins, my hair thinning isnt noticeable yet, it grows fast but what good is long if there is none of it.
