Miconazole Nitrate | Growth Aid

Post by All.day.I.dream.of.Curls on 8th March 2010, 11:49 am

"Miconazole Nitrate is the main ingredient found in Neosporin AF and
Monistat. Miconazole Nitrate is an anti-fugal medication but many people
claim that it grows hair and grows it FAST!"
~maneandchic

Has anyone experimented with this as a growth aid? Every post/blog I've ready said to use it with caution. I am considering trying it but I don't want anything crazy to happening... like waking up bald or my hairline growing down into my eyebrows, LMBO! That's not sexy. I've read that one side effect is crazy headaches, but you can dilute it by mixing with oils or she butter. I've never experimented with growth aids. This is supposed to be the "Holy Grail" [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] of hair growth. Let me know your thoughts.

Before and after pic would be great!!


Here's the link to the article I read from maneandchic:http://maneandchic.blogspot.com/search/label/101%20Beginners%20Guide%20to%20Hair

I used it when I was relaxed to fill in my edges and stimulate growth in general. I would apply MN every other day. I don't have any pics, sorry. I started using it when my relaxer was fresh and grew over 1/2 inch in 2 weeks. I stopped using it though because it was expensive. My little sister also used it and her growth sped up as well. She usually grows less than 1/2 inch per month, but when she used MN, she grew about 3/4 inch in a month.


I used it the first couple weeks after my BC, but again stopped using when the tube ran out because of the expense. Here are some pics of my growth:

@tressedforsuccess When you used it, did you experience any headaches or side effects?

I tried using this and it gave me intense headaches! But a friend of mines also tried it and had great results. We both mixed it with EVOO. Not sure what the difference might have been but I definitely won't try it again! Good luck!!!

@All.day.I.dream.of.Curls
I didn't experience any headaches at all. I sometimes felt a tingle right after I applied it, but never any pain. Since you're diluting it, you shouldn't have any problems. I hope it works for you.

Thanks tressedforsuccess! I said a little prayer after mixing it with shea butter and caster oil and before I applied it to my scalp. It felt kinda cool at first. I am not sure if I'm stressed or if it's working but I feel some pressure in my temples, its not a headache though.

Hey homies! I'm about to mix some MN with castor and coconut oil. I hope I get good results. I will check back in a month or so and let you know if there's been any significant change in growth. My hair grows pretty fast on its own anyway. Wish me luck! Smile

I took some starting pics but my hair is in twists right now so I mean they're pretty accurate but not as great as if I took pics of dry unmanipulated hair... I have an idea of what my dry hair looks like from pics I took about a week ago though so... anywhoo, here they are:

To me, medicine is medicine. Most medicines have multiple uses. You wouldn't turn down antibiotics because they're also used to treat chlamydia, would you? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] When my little sister had ringworm, the doctor had us get Lotrimin for athlete's foot to put on it...different medical indications can use the same prescription. It's more about what is does as opposed to what it could be used for.

@tressedforsuccess: that is so true. A lot of meds are exactly the same but indicated for different uses.

I agree that most medicine have multiple uses and if you have fungus on your scalp and you heard that trying Monistat on it will clear the fungus up then go for it. But for me, as far as I am concerned, I can't wrap my head around me using Monistat on my scalp with those possible side effects just to grow hair.

During my transition, I mixed MN with Marc's Sulfur hair creme & applied it to my scalp nightly several months. Here's one of my old 4 month comparisions from back then:

OK. Now I'm excited! LOL. Shocked Grow baby grow!

Jonezy do you still use it or not? And if not, was there a reason you stopped i.e. side effects, stopped working, etc?

I still have a mixed jar that's probably about a year old. I stopped because of pure laziness lol, I do it every once in a while when I make the time--but I'd say I've done it 3-4 times over the last 2 years.

I chopped off a few inches last week so I may give it another go and see if I get the same results.
I hope it works out for you!
