@alisha, @MikeMason-- I've been using biotin cream for dry scalp and flaking. Not only has the cream moisturized my scalp and gotten rid of the flakes, but my hair is growing faster and stronger too!
I had actually started losing some hair around my crown when I started using biotin cream and that completely stopped. I even have a few new strands of hair coming up in that area.
What I do with the cream is I apply it liberally within my hair line. I keep my head down to get more blood flow to my scalp and massage the cream into my scalp. I do this for a good ten-fifteen minutes. The cream makes my scalp tingle but I feel like that helps the absorption of biotin.
By the way, I wash my hair every two days, sometimes daily. I use the cream after my shower and I haven't had any buildup.
