yeast infection cream for hair growth

i was searching on youtube on ways to apply my castor oil i just got and monstat 7 popped up...is that stuff really safe to put in your hair these women say they get massive growth monthly(an inch a month if not more) then once you stop you have a lot of shedding could someone please give me insight
"rest assured all things will be okay...pray and give thanks daily...he will never leave you nor forsake you...in his arms you are blessed and at peace...so even when times are rough sleep quietly pray and be strong things will work out"

my hair has been through a lot of bad cuts and a lot of heat damage due to the desert but in two years time(when the cutting began) i am from ear length to bsb and still growing with two sl cuts last year god is good
Miconazole Nitrate is the active ingredient that is supposed to influence hair growth. I tried it a while ago and I didn't experience any shedding or anything bad when I stopped. I used the equate brand. I applied it to my scalp. I don't use it now and haven't for over a year, but I don't have any reservations about using it. If it's safe for the down there region, it can't be bad for your scalp. Some people may disagree but that's how I see it. Sure it isn't intended for that location but neither is toothpaste for pimples. Still works.lol

I was probably consistent with it for about a month and I remember getting pretty good results. Maybe like a quarter inch more. I didn't measure though and it's been a while so I don't remember every detail. But if I experienced anything horrible or bad/unsatisfactory I'm sure I'd remember that. I do remember that back then I wasn't retaininig a lot of length in general though because my hair was damaged so I bet if I tried it again in conjunction with my regimen now, I'd probably see really good results since I'm better with growth retention now.

I've realized I'm not consistent with this type of stuff in general though. I've tried to be, with the MN, the sulfur, but I just can't keep up with it. I try. I have a lot of sulfur left so I'm gonna try to use that up. Idk if I'd revisit this stuff again. I'm not against it though

yea i was just reading i have been natural for a while and not doing anything i have length (just stumbled across this website not too long ago) so i just purchased castor oil wish weighed down my straight hair...i have naturally oily hair a quite contradiction to being curly so it went super straight after a night so im ready to wash it (its only been 2 days) and maybe i will give it a try

i may wait and see if this castor oil is going to help some im not all about length tho i just want healthy hair...

so who knows maybe next month i will give it a try or while im on vacation sorta in cali next week

I started using it in May...my hair really grew fast! It grew 3in since May. The last couple of weeks I havent been doing it much. I just got lazy with it. But it definately worked on me!

I suggest using this with caution first go around though to gauge your sensitivities.

I put mine in a small bottle and shook it until monistat dissolved. My bottle had a pointed tip so I could easily apply straight to the scalp. Then I would massage it for a few minutes. After 1month, I increased to 2in of monistat, but used same amount of water and oil.

I did it every other day before bed. I bought the 7day prefilled applicators. With one prefilled applicator I was able to make 3 or 4 of my 'concoctions' (I was eyeballing the 1 and 2 inches, so it was never exact). I would get like 3 applications out of each bottle of my mixture. So it really wasnt bad. I actually just started doing it again tonight because I have been talking about it. I just have a hard time staying consistent. I want to do another 3mo. But be aware of the headaches. I had them for the first couple of weeks, usually 8-12 hours after I applied it.

I never in my life would have had the idea whilst holding a tube of yest infection cream....to put it on my topside curlies. For real, who got inspired like this!?

I figure it's worth a shot. If me and many others could put Sodium Hydroxide on our hair(and sometimes scalp by mistake) for many years, a little of this should be fine.

Do you rinse it out? Or does the white cream blend in?

I have a small tube of external Canesten cream that came with the Canesten tab I bought a while back. The tube says not to use for more than 7 consecutive days at a time. Would this rule also apply to your scalp?
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!
