: Here is another picture.
Joe,I was taking a look at the photo you posted re your interview. ImI, maybe you do have a receding hairline, however without me seeing pictures from when you were 10-15 years younger it is hard to tell. Some people just have long foreheads. You might be one of them. However, I think that you have a good look going over-all and I think the hair you have looks like the way it is shown on men in film and television series. I think it gives you a confident classic look. It, to me, definitely gives off a dapper Asian sort of vibe. I don't know if that is exactly what you were going for, but it definitely does not detract, in my opinion, from your self presentation.
I do take biotin because I have eczema on my hands and it helps to keep my fingers from bleeding. They still look cracked but I can tell a difference in the underlying structure of the dermis when I am taking biotin vs. when I am not. I take 10,000McGee in a gel capsule daily. I use Nature's Bounty brand.
Other effects of the biotin that I Boyce are stronger faster growing finger and toe nails. I find that cuts on my skin heal faster. I find that I produce a little more body oil, but since I have drier skin over-all this does not seem to be a real issue for me, although I do have to be mindful of pimples while taking biotin. When I am not taking biotin I do not.
The effects that biotin seems to have on my hair are a few. One of them is that the growing cycle for my hair seems to be a little longer. The strength and rebound (for a Native American my hair is considered curly, but many non Native Americans view my hair as wavy or straight) of the hair is better. In my case the scalp produces a little more sebum when first taking the biotin, and I can tell the difference. After taking the biotin for a while, the sebum production stays at the higher level. I do wash my hair water only since in modern water systems like where I live, there is chlorine in the water and on my skin and hair, it is strong enough to cleanse the hair of any particulates which may be there (and of course I use soap on my body). I find that the increase in sebum actually decreases dandruff. Other more aesthetic things I notice about my hair when taking biotin are textural in nature. I think that due to having a higher dose of sebum on my scalp, the fact that I use finger combing and not a brush or manufactured comb, help in preserving hair volume and appearance. Since there is more sebum on the hair when I am taking biotin, the hair seems to increase in silkiness and sheen. Women seem to like my hair, which is an added bonus to the cultural reasons that I have long hair.
I know I kind of went on a bit long, but I wanted to give you as full a picture as I could. For many Native Americana, telling a story is how we communicate information, rather than bullet points. I hope you find this information useful.
On another point, how is your interview process going? I hope it is going well for you.
Take care Joe, hope to see a reply from you.
