I was surprised to read in a Long Hair Care forum that people who spray diluted Monistat (the yeast-infection treatment!) onto their scalp significantly increases and accelerates hair growth. I can't imagine what the mechanism is. Is there any reason to think this could be true? Could bacteria be a reason for slow hair growth?

Many example claims:

  • Monistat is antifungal, not antibacterial. It kills yeast which is a fungus, not a bacteria. – Sam I Am Mar 30 '12 at 3:35
  • I have also seen this claim, and wondered about this very question. Many people swear by it. – Charlie Flowers Jun 3 '12 at 7:01
