After a LOT of searching online...I'm now trying Monistat 7 vaginal yeast infection cream on my scalp. My hair loss is severe and I have been one of the ones that did every thing right. I took my vitamins, i took my biotin, i ate my protein. But since I also lost about a quarter or more of my hair after my three pregnancies, i was expecting this.
But now...i have lost at least a third of my hair. its very thin, very straggly, and you can see scalp everywhere ...and it is showing no signs of slowing down or stopping. I've been losing handfuls for three weeks now.
I started using it today, i separated my hair into one inch strips and apply with my fingers along each part for my whole head. Took about 15 minutes..applied to scalp directly. I will be doing this daily until this tube runs out, to see if i see a measurable difference. I will keep you all posted!
incidentally....reports from users are more encouraging than not....some even reporting up to an inch or more a month in growth. If i could get an inch of growth, all the baby hairs would fill in the bald scalp. i would be THRILLED.
