Faced with unusual hair loss, it is essential to know how to act to avoid a considerable loss of density. One of the most popular remedies lately is what is known as biotin, which can be found in the composition of some shampoos, as well as in nutritional supplements. But, Is biotin for hair loss really effective?

En Hospital Capilar, hair clinic in Madrid, Murcia and Pontevedra, we tell you everything you need to know about biotin for hair.

What is biotin?

Before knowing how biotin works for hair loss, it is essential to know what it really is. Biotin is nothing more than a B group vitamin that promotes the production of enzymes in hair and skin.

Biotin can be found in foods such as oily fish or eggs. Also in some dried fruits such as walnuts. The ideal way to keep hair in good condition is to avoid a deficit of this nutrient, among others, through a correct and varied diet.

How does biotin work on hair?

The main function of biotin in hair is, according to our doctors, facilitate the arrival of nutrients to the hair follicles by promoting blood circulation and oxygenation of the scalp. This keeps the hair healthy and in the best condition.

In short, biotin, along with other types of essential nutrients for hair, is essential for maintaining hair health.

Is it true that biotin slows hair loss?

Lately there are many people who decide to consume food supplements based on biotin for hair loss. But, is it true that the consumption of this nutrient in isolation is capable of reversing the effects of hair loss?

As we have previously mentioned, biotin contributes to the proper functioning of the scalp. However, consuming biotin for hair loss or applying it topically will not stop us from losing hair. Yes it is true that it can help, but in no case can it be used as a single and isolated treatment for unusual hair loss.

Therefore, it could not be said that biotin is effective in treating hair loss in isolation, but it is beneficial for hair.
