Hairstyling/Biotin and Oily hair


Ronnie wrote at 2009-11-29 20:25:28
Simply Put: YES, ABSOLUTELY YES. Biotin works with the body's sex and growth hormones either increasing their production or facilitating its entrance into the skin cells, in fact that is the reason why Biotin works by speeding the growth and thickness of hair and nails, as it happens the endocrine glands which are the sebum (oil) producing cells in the skin are also receptive to those hormones so they are stimulated to produce more oils than otherwise. So much so that it has been reported that Biotin supplementation produces hirsutism (facial hair) in women, as well as acne and/or oily skin in both sexes    

I hope this info helps

So the exact same thing happened to me! I started taking it and a week or so later my hair started getting so oily at the scalp within 12 hours it looked like 2 1/2 day old hair. I am taking a high dose of biotin every morning. I don't believe it is a coincidence.
