Biotin from Amazon, preferably the 10,000 mcg strength. Sorry, not Tesco

You could try prenatals too, they've always done wonders for my hair and nails. Just don't let anyone see you take them or they'll jump to all sorts of conclusions!

A pot of jelly a day does wonders for my hair and nails.

Not done it for a while, and I look a mess.

Perfectil hair and nail vitamins worked wonders on my hair (but did nothing for my awful nails). I think Tesco sell them.

The pregnanacare breast feeding vitamin pack which includes an onega 3 oil capsule, around £15 for 30 days worth, so very expensive, but made my skin clear, hair glossy and strong, was a really significant change!

Pregnacare, not pregnanacare...

Flaxseed oil is great. We cialky for a vegetarian who doesn't want to take cod liver oil!

the last poster's phone has garbled what was said, but be aware that there is evidence re veg-sourced omega-3; it's nowhere near as useful as fish sources.

if you've got scattered follicles nothing you eat will change that. Do you eat a proper varied diet of real food?

Sorry! I had a mouthful of flaxseed oil! ;)

I've found it to be good.
