I cant imagine why his costs so much but at least it worked for him too! (Its only $4.90 at walmart)
He can keep the eggs and mayonnaise too


Don't forget, however you mix, we're  adding 1 tsp sulfur to ours too! 

PS:OK now this might be nearing  the end of her follicle growth stage. I recognize that from there she might need to add MSM to lengthen her hair follicle growth stage to get more growth on to the end of that along with the MN.

Oh...
Never mind.
He just used regular Monistat...
Maybe he's not from the United States and it's hard to get?

Good luck ladies. I do intend to make a sulfur mix eventually to be used daily when I am wigging it. I currently have a sew in and the net used underneath prevents me from accessing my scalp well. I look forward to seeing all of your progress along the way. I am certain I will be joining you guys later. HHG LADIES!

I am reviewing this product for hair growth (and not the intended use!) I met a lady at the gym who had grown her hair 6 inches in just over three months, and I was amazed! I asked her how she did it - and she said she had used vitamins (like biotin) and monistat of her scalp everyday. Since I have recently decided to grow my hair long again, and my hair grows slowly, I decided to use it. I usually grow about 1/4 inch per month. Since using this on my scalp I have grown 2 and a 1/2 inches in about 7 weeks. Pretty amazing! I do not have any side effects. I use it full strength on my scalp every time after I wash and dry my hair. The active ingredient is an anti-fungal which helps to get rid of the thrush / fungus that naturally grows on our scalp and sometimes can inhibit hair growth. The active ingredient stays active for about 3 days, so you don't have to apply every day (only after you wash, assuming you wash every three days or less). I haven't had any side effects. There is no smell and it isn't very greasy; just make sure to put on the scalp only. You can part it into sections and apply to the exposed scalp, and then rub it into the scalp. I use the generic 7-day brand from Walmart (2%) and it's $4.95 for an entire tube that lasts me about 2 weeks. I've talked to my boyfriend who is a physician and he said it's totally safe, and acted like it made sense to use an anti-fungal (I was surprised - I was embarrased to ask him lol!) I would recommended this to anyone looking to grow their hair out faster!

This review covers something I never thought I'd write about:


Using anti-ladyplace-itch cream on the roots of my hair.


Monistat is, for me, hair in a tube. From what I have read, the active ingredient (Miconazole Nitrate) oxygenates the scalp and gets rid of yeast/fungal infections in doing so.. and et voila, I have new hair growth and a plethora of little baby hairs making my hair feel a-may-zingz. If you are desperate for new growth (me), open to new things (me) and a little bit crazy (goes without saying) - please read on. 


Though my husband is completely grossed out and teases me incessantly about using what is affectionately called "cooter cream" on some hair boards, I'm unashamed to buy it and am on my second 45 gram tube. I'm growing out a super duper asymmetrical bob which is about an inch long on one side - I need new growth more than anyone I know! Though skeptical at first, I have noticed both substantial thickness and new growth all over - almost 1/2 an inch - after using this for approximately a month. I have a whole bunch of brand new hairs springing up all over - wherever I part my hair, there's too many new hairs to count. It feels healthier and thicker and it's visibly longer. 


Please, before you start using this product, look into it first. I read exhaustively both on the forums here and also at the Long Hair Community prior to starting and there seem to be multiple methods of application and many varied experiences and opinions. It can be expensive if you choose to use only the name brand Monistat cream, and it's definitely confusing to try and figure out what brand offers what, whether you're happy to use a generic (my current tube cost me $6 from Target, as opposed to $17 for the same non generic brand), the percentage you choose to use (either 2% or 4%) and finally, your chosen application method. 


As far as I can tell, these are the application methods most commonly used:


1. Undiluted cream on scalp
Part hair, smear the cream as needed (can be about an inch per parting) This will use up your tube pretty damn fast and can induce severe headaches in some people as the cream hasn't been mixed or diluted. 


2. Partially diluted in warm water via spray bottle. Sprayed on the roots of your hair and massaged in if you feel so inclined.


3. Partially diluted in warm water via hair dye bottle applicator. As above. Some users prefer this as a more direct way to access the roots without the spray nozzle clogging up in a bottle. Can be a little tingly, but in a tickle-y way. 


My application method of choice is the second option, simply because it's easier for me to make sure I get my roots completely. You want your mixture to resemble a slightly viscous white liquid. Which sounds incredibly suspicious, so I apologise! I have a small, 30 ml spray bottle which used to be used for hair spray, so I squeeze about an inch worth of cream into the tube, add less than an inch of water and shake the bottle until it is evenly dispersed and mixed. I then part my hair and spray all along the exposed root section (this stuff is going to do absolutely zilch on the length of your hair so roots only, people!), make sure it's saturated and then part my hair again. And so on and so forth. Once I either run out of stuff to spray or my hair is totally saturated, I then massage it into my scalp for good measure and leave it on until it dries or I go to bed. 


The active ingredient is, I have read, active for between 48-72 hours. This equals a possible 72 hours if this cream works for you and you don't mind leaving it on your hair. The negative to using a generic brand is that they mix it with mineral oil so I can't bear to leave it on for anything longer than overnight because I turn into a greaseball. Washes out beautifully and I've not noticed any buildup. In terms of frequency of application, I apply every second to third night depending on my laziness. The key is to keep using it. 


I guess that's all for now! It worked amazingly well for me, but as always, YMMV. Read up, educate yourself, and then give it a go for at least a month. The curious/horrified looks at the checkout might just be worth it.

Ok, so I am reviewing this not for the intended use of this product. Alot of girls over on the Long Hair Care Forum are using this as a hair growth aid. It works sort of like Nizoral Shampoo, because it is also an antifungal. I know your thinking "WHAT?? VAG CREAM ON MY HEAD?!?" well, now its not so gross because alot of girls here are using monistat anti-chafing gel as a primer on their face. there are many off-label uses for many things you can find in your drugstore and this is one of them. Anyways to use this, you can apply it directly to your scalp at night and massage it in after parting your hair. Or you can squeeze about an inch of this cream into a jar, add a little bit of water, pour into a hair dye- nozzle bottle and apply directly to scalp this way. you should leave it on overnight and wash it out in the morning. many women see at least 1 inches of growth due to to this product usage every night. so if you are used to growing 1 inches of hair every month, you will probably grow 2 inches. Another use for this product that i got rec'd to me is that it can be used for sebrorrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is a scalp and face condition. You usually can see it on your scalp, and this is what can also prevent hair from growing. If your scalp feels particularly oily or greasy, or you feel like it feels 'moist' alot, then you may have seborrheic dermatitis. If your face is very red alot and you have greasy and/or flaky skin than you may have seborrheic dermatitis. If you apply this to your face and have noticed that your face has calmed down, then you can see if it works. I have seb. derm. and rosacea and when I use this on my face, it is less oily and red. i am so glad that i have found two uses for this product. very unusual.

I decided to start today...!
I found a plastic cap that I can use until tomorrow plus I was too eager not too.Tongue
I decided to use a little brush for applying the mix and so far it's working out. 

It makes application easy and I don't have to worry about oil getting everywhere when I sleep and it'll prevent oil from getting on my face... = no breakouts. :)

I took my length checks too.

I decided to just get the top piece and the left front side. Otherwise it was too much...
Lol. I even thought about straightening out my hair (one pass) but it's not that serious.Dead


Front bang (3 1/2 in.): I tried to make the part as straight as possible, but then I realized we didn't have any combs at my house...LOL I took a picture of the parts I made for my own reference when I length check again.


It kind of looks like I'm holding the tape measure right in front of my face, but I laid it flat to where the part was first...

Side left (4 in.):

Pull the hair straight out from the scalp and measure strand from root to tip.  with hair hanging you are measuring neighboring tips  also.... OR just place the tape measure at hairiline .... not an arbitrary part and pull hair up vertically to measure not hanging across the head to neighboring ends

Good Job Amber!
 
PS Is this the yellow  mixture you made  or a different one ? I don't see any yellow  sulfur powder in this mixture . Did you  massage head 30  minutes after application and hang head upside down also a few minutes? There's always tomorrow!

For some reason I can't get a straight part.
And I did measure from the root, but to take the picture and measure the end of my hair the top of the tape measure can't be held down
*Shrugs*
It's close enough. I know how to easily get the same part again since it's at the front where my "peak" is.

And yes, this is the same mixture.
There isn't anything in the bowl.LOL
I didn't do 30 minutes, but a little more than 20.
I had my head over for 1 minute. Next week I'll do 3, then after 4, and then eventually 5 minutes.
