How Biotin Can Help Support Hair Growth

Looking for ways to help promote healthy hair growth? Chances are you’ve come across the ingredient Biotin – but what is it and what does it do? We discuss the benefits of Biotin for hair and show you the easiest ways to incorporate this vitamin into your haircare routine.

But First, What Is Biotin?

Let’s start with the basics: what is Biotin? Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is an essential nutrient found in a variety of foods, including eggs, seeds, nuts and cauliflower. It’s water soluble and mainly helps to break down the proteins, fats and carbohydrates in food and turn them into energy.

Benefits of Biotin for Hair

As well as supporting a healthy metabolism, Biotin is a key nutrient for maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails.

While we typically consume the right amount of Biotin in our diets that’s required for natural hair growth, many choose to take Biotin supplements or apply Biotin-based shampoos to further strength their hair.

If you’re struggling with low levels of biotin, you’ll likely have:

  • Thinning hair
  • Brittle nails
  • Skin prone to infections
  • Soreness around eyes nose and mouth

Biotin for Hair Growth – Does It Work?

Several studies have explored whether Biotin supports hair growth, and trichologists have spotted links.

Biotin is thought to promote stronger and possibly even thicker hair. As strong hair is less prone to breakage, hair can grow longer and thicker, and still look healthy.

Although Biotin doesn’t stop hair loss directly, many dealing with hair thinning take Biotin supplements to help encourage natural hair growth. If you’re struggling with thinning hair and increase your Biotin intake, you should expect to see results after four months.

How to Add Biotin Supplements to Your Haircare Routine

Whether you’re after an oral supplement or a Biotin-based shampoo or treatment, we’ve got just what you need…

Grow Me Biotin Shampoo

Ensuring your shampoo contains Biotin is the first step to encouraging strong, healthy hair growth. As well as Biotin, Watermans biotin shampoo Grow Me Shampoo is formulated with Caffeine, Argan Oil and Rosemary Extract to create the optimal environment on your scalp for hair growth.

On wet hair, apply your Grow Me Shampoo and massage into the scalp to form a lather. Pay extra attention to the areas you believe to be thinning. When the whole scalp has been covered, rinse thoroughly.
