A woman's hair is her crowning glory.
The 15 billion dollar hair care industry in the United States is a reflection of this.  Many women spend hundreds of dollars a month on hair care products and services, just to achieve a Beyonce-like mane. Regular trips to the salon and home remedies alike, many women treat their hair care seriously to steer clear of those bald patches on the head.
Unbeknownst to many, there's one vitamin that can help maintain and rock long locks. And where to get it may be more common than they'd expect.
The ingredient we're talking about is biotin.
According to Healthline: 
Biotin [or Vitamin B7] is a water-soluble vitamin that’s a part of the vitamin B family. It’s also known as vitamin H. Your body needs biotin to help convert certain nutrients into energy. It also plays an important role in the health of your hair, skin, and nails.
Biotin is sometimes known as Vitamin H. It stands for or "Haar und Haut", which are German words for "hair and skin." Makes total sense because biotin has been known for years as an essential ingredient for keeping a healthy hair!
In fact, many hair care products like shampoo, conditioner, creams, oils, and other biotin containing products claim that they can lead to full, thick and shiny locks!
While the jury's still out on whether biotin can treat hair loss , the dermatological and pediatric communities still consider it as a key ingredient for hair care. And that's because one of the symptoms for biotin deficiency is hair loss. Hence, taking more biotin can help people suffering from hair loss or thinning.
While the Food and Drug Administration has not set a recommended dietary allowance for biotin, experts have indicated the following dosage based on age: 
Pregnant women and nursing moms, as well as those trying to get pregnant, may need higher dosages.
As with anything health-related, it's best to consult with your doctor to know the right daily intake and avoid biotin deficiency.
It's rare to fall short on biotin levels in the body, mainly because most of us get more than enough from our diet and gastrointestinal bacteria anyway! However, you will know if you're biotin deficient if you have: [4, 5]
The following are also more prone to lower levels of biotin:
Getting (more than) enough levels of biotin is not at all difficult. In fact, you may already be having just the right amount in your body. But in case you're curious or wish to increase your biotin levels, here are the foods that are rich in vitamin B7 (or H however way you want to call it): [2, 5]
If you think you're not eating enough of these foods, or simply just want to elevate the level of biotin in your body, you can also take supplements containing biotin. Especially if your goal is to achieve strong, luscious, full and shiny hair fast, you can take hair health and growth vitamins with high levels of biotin.
Nobody wants lifeless, thinning hair. But if you're noticing increasing bald patches or losing a lot of hair, or any of the symptoms for biotin deficiency above, then you may want to consult with your dermatologist and see if taking vitamins can help make your Hair Strong.

Beginning an exercise program can be daunting, especially if you have never really been into fitness before.
Some people, when they exercise, strive for a bikini body. If you have a diving bell body, don't fret, you too can be helped by regular exercise. You can look better, but more important feel better if you eat right, exercise, and get enough sleep.
