my mother said that someone told her about using preparation H and Vaseline to help hair loss and hair growth.

Could anyone tell me if they have used it and what they experience have been like.

I've never heard of that one, although I do know people who use Preparation H to minimize the bags under their eyes!! LOL
The ingredients in Prep H don't seem to suggest anything that could stimulate hair growth.  Here they are:  
Active Ingredients:   Preparation H is available in ointment, cream, gel, and suppository product forms. The Ointment contains Petrolatum 71.9%, Mineral Oil 14%, Shark Liver Oil 3% and Phenylephrine HCl 0.25%.
Shark liver oil does contain some healing properties so maybe that's what stimulates hair growth.  Here's a bit about shark liver oil:
Shark liver oil is rich in alkylglycerols, which are naturally found in mother's milk and in bone marrow. It also contains pristane, squalene, vitamins A and D, omega-3 fatty acids, triglycerides, glycerol ethers, and fatty alcohols.
Also with the petrolatum and mineral oil in Prep H, I'm sure there are other things that can improve hair growth that don't contain these pore-clogging ingredients.  If it's really the shark liver oil that helps the hair and scalp, maybe you should invesigate that for hair growth?

I concur with lady, the shark liver oil would be the ony ingredient in Preporation H to investigate.  Prep H produce some short term anesthetic effect to tissues, I do believe that it could constrict the hair follicles.

I think I remember some people on LHCF used it (or was it here on BHM?). I don't remember any results though. It was a while ago.
ETA - The search feature here is totally messed up so my search came out to 0.
