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.

Default Re: Miconazole Nitrate (MN) Challenge (May 1 - July 31, 2012)

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.
i hope to be on #6 by july 1 (my next relaxer, and 3 inches total.)

Ok I'm in!
What is your current length? NL
How long have you used in MN? Just started 2 weeks ago.
How will you use your MN (directly/mixed)? Mixed one tube with half a jar of African pride grease.
What frequency will you apply it? 3 times a week
Any other growth aids that you are using? ic deep penetrating daily moisturizer and I seal with organic coconut oil.
Anything else you care to add:
I self bleached my hair last October and leaving all of what I bleached in the sink. EVERY STRAND! Leaving my entire crown bald(from hairline to center) so I have no choice but to keep it braided or I'd have to shave my head cause it can't style. 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)

Default Re: Miconazole Nitrate (MN) Challenge (May 1 - July 31, 2012)

And here's my entry

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/sho...postcount=3823
