Question MN for hair growth?

okay so i was told that MN was good for hair growth. I was wondering if it can be applied to the scalp by itself or should it be mixed with something? TIA!

Ive used it for a few months and it really did double my hair growth. 1 inch in a month...i swear by this stuff. got from this website for like 2 bucks instead of 15 for monistat. btw it has apricot oil as the 1st ingredient most of them have mineral oil first but on this one has it later on down the list

Lord have mercy.

Now I will be putting vagy cream on my scalp.

Did you say 1"?

How does it work? What makes it grow?

Do you have to do it consistently - like everyday?

I am curious

I researched this and I found info going all the way back to 05-06 people were using this stuff.

Some used the neosporin af and others used the monistat. In the UK some used Daktarin Gold.

Then I found a thread with triconazole as they said it had 6.5%

I want 4% - if i try, or 6.5 if I can find it, but I have a hard enough time remembering to put my growth mixes on my scalp as it is.

i dont have enough pictures that can truly be used for a comparison. ill def post some in my fotki over the summer (would three inches in three months be the greatest thing of all time?!)

what i do is:
straighten
apply cream directly to the scalp every 2-3 days
(rub it in ad try to distribute over scalp really well)
leave it alone

the only reason i straighten it is bc i dont want to have to cowash and reapply everyday. not to mention i wanted to actually see the new growth. i literally had 1/4" by the end of the week. vagie cream for hair growth...who knew?

Has anyone on the board tried the 4%?


And does this contain a lot of oil?

Ok this is waaaay too expensive!


I looked at those creams and they were 14.00 for a tiny 1 inch suppository! And you only get three!


My goodness how would I cover my scalp for a month?

Do they have flat rate shipping?

And how many tubes do you have to buy?
