A: Miconazole nitrate (the active ingredient in Monistat 7) is an antifungal cream. This medication does help hair grow because if the scalp has a fungus it will cure the fungus and it oxidizes the hair follicles to allow growth.


I personally experienced some terrible hair loss a few years ago and I, along with my dermatologist and my hair stylist, attribute Miconazole nitrate 2% to my hair regrowth.

I recommend you mix 1 tube Miconazole nitrate with a carrier oil i.e. lavender, and rosemary are a few that are known to encourage hair growth, and a cap full of castor oil. Apply a small amount twice daily for best results.
