Ok, so I tried the Monistat!

I've been reading articles and post from everyone saying its great and it works for them. So I thought I'd give it a go. I've been using it for one month and I haven't seen any results. I did have a terrible dandruff problem and it did go away but growth wise I think it's growing the usual 1/2 inch a month. I would apply it to my hair 3x a week. Tuesday,
Thursday, and Sunday. Im gonna keep trying for one more month but nothing so far. I have braids in so I would know if there's something new.

    Thank you for posting your results. I've read about Monistat's supposed hair growth qualities but I've been hesitant to try it because I also heard that it can cause bad headaches (not sure why though). That's good that your dandruff is going away though!!!!!!

    If you dilute it with oil it doesn't cause any headaches. I've been using this for about 3 months. The first month I really couldn't notice the difference but I sure have now. Give it some time. It'll work!

    No problem :)

    I do dilute it with olive oil. I'm going to continue for another month, I'll keep you updated!

    I've been using it for about 3 months and I've noticed growth but more so my hair is super thick which I love. It's my understanding that the headaches are caused because the mn increases blood circulation and oxygen to your head which in turn can increase headaches. Lol or something like that

    Yea, I agree I would get headaches but I always used a diluted mix but I still get the aches.

    Can this cause any bad side effects besides the headaches? Like, if you stop using it, will all the new growth fall out?

    If you find suicideve's blog on the net you'll find more info. I do believe though that she mentioned that if you stop abruptly you'd have a lot of shed.

    I hasn't caused me any other side effects besides headaches. But I'm not sure if it falls out because im still using it.

    The headaches are REAL. I think I put way too much MN in my oil mix. I tried cutting it by adding a lot more castor but still woke up today with another headache. I will scrap this batch and try again at a later date. Next time I will use a lot less MN.
