How I grew my natural nails and how you can too with this simple method!
The health of my hair, skin, and nails has been a big focal point of my self health improvement plan for this year. Being natural definitely requires me to focus on the health of my hair. So since hair, skin, and nails can all be helped at once, I figured why not add something to my regimen that can do that for me.
Taking vitamins and supplements is a great way to get our daily dosage of health-improving vitamins and minerals, instead of only relying on what we collect from our daily food intake.
Biotin is a vitamin that promotes healthy hair, skin, and nail growth. Taking these vitamins are a part of my natural hair regimen! Taking a women’s daily vitamin along with a Biotin vitamin allows me to get more of the vitamins A, B-6, B-12, C, D, E, Niacin, and Biotin in my body. And they’re both gummy vitamins, which means no hard to swallow pills! Every day from these two vitamins, I get an incredible 966% of my daily value for Biotin. Yes folks… 966%!!! I’ve been taking the Nature’s Bounty Health and Beauty Vitamins for the past 5-6 months, and I’ve definitely seen longer hair, retained length, and shinier hair. I have clearer skin. My nails are longer and stronger than ever! Everywhere I go people compliment my nails and are shocked when I tell them that these aren’t acrylics, but my real nails!
I’ve also seen improved energy in particular with my GNC Women’s Ultra Mega Gummy Multivitamin, which has 133% Biotin.
The Nature’s Bounty vitamins cost anywhere from $5-$7 at your local grocery store or pharmacy for a bottle of 80, which will last you 40 days. (There is also a 120-count available that will last you 60 days.) They come in strawberry and raspberry flavors.
The GNC Women’s Ultra Mega Gummy Multivitamins cost around $12.99 for a bottle of 120, which will last you 60 days. You can find these in mixed berry flavor at your nearest GNC vitamin and supplement store.
They really work! Don’t believe me, see for yourself!
