Default I Know Some Black Women Are Obsessed With Length But......

Is there a limit to what some women would do to achieve a lot of length in a short period of time? I heard there's a number of women who use monistat on their hair. Is this true????????????

i heard about it on www.longhaircareforum.com

someone posted that they know someone who uses it and it's been helping their hair. i'm sorry, but there are LIMITS!!

Yeah it is gross and not only that, I posted a topic about harmful ingredients in black hair products and placenta is dangerous. I'm going to bump the article.

Actually the monistat thing is not that unheard of.

I saw an episode of Oprah about beauty secrets where women said they use a 'personal' hygiene cream as an eye treatment. I've read the same thing in magazines also.

Does anyone know what the active ingredient(s) are in the monistat?

The active ingredient in Monistate is miconazole which fights fungal infections (the one-day treatment uses a different active ingredient).

The 'personal hygience cream' referred to is actually Preparation H--people use the same active ingredient that shrinks...well...you know.. to reduce puffiness around the eyes. I have heard from some folks that the US version of Prep H doesn't do the trick--it has to be the international version, as it is the original formulation.

Thanks for clarifying about the Preparation H Cheleigh.

I knew it was something used near that region of the body.
