The Miconazole Nitrate thread started in 2002 and is still going strong and is filled with a lot of experience stories throughout the years.
http://www.longhaircareforum.com/showthread.php?t=1209

I recently started (March 20) using it when I felt like I was at growth standstill and I think it is really helping me to move past SL and closer to APL.

My current length is almooostttt APL
Ive been using MN since Feb 27, 2012. i think it contributed to my 3 inches in 2 months growth spurt.
Right now im using it mixed with a whip shea mix, sulfur, and rosemary oil. I think i will start using it straight and alternate between the mix and straight.
i will apply it every single day
I also use sulfur and JBCO.
I love growwth aids! thanks jprayze for starting this challenge! i cant wait to see some more results. My starting pic is in my siggy. Im on #4 of the shirt.

The pic that's shown is how the mixture looks after I've applied it and it dries clear. I started 2 weeks the same day I got my braids redone. Hope to be regrown by end of year.

I'm almost at APL!!!

I will be using it directly on my scalp 2 x a day.

I have some MT that I will be using a couple times a week.

I have been using MN for about 4 days thus far.

Hey Ladies, I purchased my MN in bulk. I bought 6 packs for only 9 bucks off Amazon (shipping is 6 which is annoyyinngggg). I know some ladies are actually buying the Monistat brand which can be expensive so Im hoping this helps. I ordered 2, 6 packs of this.

Miconazole Nitrate 2 % Antifungal Cream - 1 Oz (Pack of 6)

And here's my entry :grin:

What is your current length? just shy of APL (about 1 inch away)

How long have you used in MN? I've been using it since March 20th.

How will you use your MN (directly/mixed)? I'm going to continue to massage it directly on my scalp twice a day. Thinking about making a spray mix that includes MN but I'm not sure yet.

What frequency will you apply it? 2x/day
Any other growth aids that you are using?
I use JBCO when wearing natural type of styles (twistout, wet buns, wash n gos), not while straight.
Going to try to start taking my vitamins (multi, and 1000 mcg biotin) while doing this challenge to get max growth.

Anything else you care to add: Hoping that this challenge will get me to APL by the next length check (June 30th).


My starting pics are the April 25 pic from the opening post and this twistout from last week: http://www.longhaircareforum.com/showpost.php?p=15806105&postcount=3823

Thanks. I plan to have a full rear hair length photo taken this week when my SO learns how to use the camera correctly w/o botching-up the shot! He acts like..:whyme:
I cant seem to get a complete shot doing it by myself. So he's got to do it!
I will then add it to my profile and prior post.

@mEmYSELFaNDj
you said it's worked for you in the past, what kind of results did you see?
lindsaywhat When I first started my hair journey in the summer of 09 I used it between June and august, and I my hair grow at least 2.5 inches(please note: my hair was also hidden in a weave that whole time though, so MN/MT mixture worked in conjunction with protective styling and I was taking chorella and garlic supplements). And then in April 2010 I had a baby and my edges fell out and I used it again and my edges filled back by the beginning of fall. So its worked great for me two separate occasions. So Im sure it will work for me this time.
