Biotin, spirulina okay for hair loss?


Question from butterfly: A doctor who was at my hairdresser's shop getting her hair done suggested I take biotin to restore hair loss due to chemo. Someone else suggested spirulina. What do you think?
Answers - Ronda Gates, M.S., R.Ph. My first question is, are they selling it? There is nothing to support that any supplement will prevent hair loss or make it grow back faster.
