I'm desperately trying to get my hair to grow and have always had the kind of hair that reached a certain point and stopped growing. Anyhoo, not long ago I heard someone say that if you put yeast infection cream (YES, Vagisil) on your scalp, it will help your hair grow. I actually Googled this also and there was info that actually came up. Has anyone ever tried this? And, if so did it work?
Miconazole Nitrate is an ingredient found in antifungal and yeast infection creams. This ingredient has been shown to help promote hair growth so many women opt to use it as a growth aid. A popular mixture is a tube of MN and a 1/4 jar of Sulfur 8 grease. You can find MN in Monistat and Neosporin AF. Or you can use the generic stuff. Family Dollar has a good MN.

Re: Yeast Infection Cream = Hair Growth
This is odd. If you do try it, be sure you add some antibacterial stuff (like that sulfur you mentioned). You wouldn't want the yeast to die and all of a sudden get a growth of bacteria. Grosssssssssssssssss sss!
But who's to say it's a yeast inhibiting your hair growth? It could be dermatophytes, harsh products, genetics, and a million other things.
oh my GOD
i thought u were trying to get your pubic hair to grow...
with some yeast cream...
please do not put that on your hair. please.
its not meant to go on the hair... its for the SCALP...the SCALP is SKIN... which getsz yeast infections like many of your other body parts covered in skin... you can get a yeast infection on your feet, arms and anyplace else...
my DERMATOLOGIST, as I explained in the other thread, recommends it
Folks mistakenly think its some miracle growth cream... its not gonna grow your hair like that... what it will do, is prevent premature hair loss... many women unknowingly have yeast infections on their scalp... they think its dandruff... those flakes & itches cause hair loss and inhibit further growth.... get rid of the yeast= hairgrowth
I read that that was one of the side effects. Did you mix it with something? Mixing it with olive oil, castor oil or sulfur 8 is supposed to help.
No I didn't...just straight coochie cream.
There's so much info on longhaircare...when I first discovered the forum...I went a little crazy, lol...trying everything I could get my hands on. I no longer believe in topical growth aids...for me co-washing frequently and taking my vitamins works best.
