    So far, I’ve only missed one day since 5/2. My nails are DEFINITELY growing in stronger - so I’m gonna need to trim them. Hopefully, after around 3 or so months I see a difference in, if not in my growth rate, the health of my hair (I guess the roots?).

    *sigh* I haven't been taking my vitamins at all. Some of them I actually need to take because of deficiencies but I HATE taking vitamins. I just hate it. But I'm trying to get in the habit of taking them because skipping out on them has not gone well for me like my hair is falling out. Going to get one of those weekly pill trays and set an alarm to remind me to take these dang pills. ugh.

    I've started the Phytophanere phase of my pill popping. I've had success with it in the past, so I'm hopeful
    As I look back on the Viviscal days, I have to say it definitely gave my hair growth a boost. I didn't notice it at first, and I was less than consistent, but my hair has thickened up some in addition to decent growth. It has not, and cannot, regrow my hairline without further medical help (due to auto-immune issues), but I'll give Viviscal its due. I'll go into maintenance mode and pop just one a day, separate from the Phyto. I'm afraid to go cold turkey off the Viviscal.

    @blackgurll I'm glad I decided to stock up on Viviscal during Ultas sale.

    Happy Hair Growing!

    I can't get it together with these vitamins y'all. Can I crush the vitamins and take them that way? I struggle to swallow these vitamins and I feel like I am going to choke half the time, especially with the calcium/vit D vitamin that I have to take. It makes me not want to bother. Any recommendations for liquid vitamins?

    I've been taking my probiotic regularly and that's about it. I did purchase some liquid vitamins - biotin and calcium/vitamin D. Also bought MSM crystals. Hopefully, they will arrive tomorrow so I can start taking them then.

    Just got my liquid vitamins in the mail today! I bought bitoin, MSM crystals, and Calcium w/ Magnesium and vitamin D. I took all three and drank a little orange juice afterward. Sooooo for the MSM crystals it says to dissolve them in warm water and drink that. This tastes terrible! Ugh its so awful. But I know sulfur is good for overall health so I am going to stick with it.
    The liquid biotin and Calcium/vit D weren't bad at all. Much much easier for me than pills.

    1.) Your current length and the length you hope the vitamins will help you achieve (or other goal that you wish to achieve) CBL
    2.) Any of the vitamins or supplements you're using for the health of your hair (or body in general) MSM, Vit C, Biotin, Collagen, BSO and Multi-Vit
    3.) How long you intend to take the vitamins for When I run out of Biotin I don't plan to repurchase
