Apparently Miconazole Nitrate 2% which is an anti-fungal cream (like ketoconazole) seems to be helping with Hair growth for the ladies over a short period of time. Some male users over at the other forum have used it and vouch for it. Has anyone here tried it before with any measure of success ?" Here is a few links to read on http://www.longhaircareforum.c...ks.jp/j-east/article/2 ... 760566.php http://www.google.ca/search?client=fire ... gle+Search

Good find.

I'll have to look into this in more detail.

But, reading the first link, what is up with black people and nape hair?

I'm just not getting it. Is that a big problem in the Afro-American community?

Remember Dr. Miracle's Nape and Hair Gro Balm?

Anyway, I'm going to research this further.

Thanks Pacino.

I've just finished reading 9 pages from that long hair forum.

Everyone there is reporting fast growth with the miconazole nitrate cream.

They are also mixing 2 parts of MN with 1 part capsaisen and 1 part OTC cortizone

cream. Some are also adding Sulphur 8 and Peppermint Oil.

But I think Miconazole Nitrate 2% is the main component in their regime. And its not only Blk ppl, There are some non blk ppl too over at the other hairloss site trying this out and reporting success. The mechanism of operation seems to be much like Keto 2%

I think it's the nitrate. That's the opinion in that forum of the people using it.

Peppermint/Menthol has hair growth properties as well.

Econazole and miconazole inhibit steroidogenesis and disrupt steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein expression post-transcriptionally.
Walsh LP, Kuratko CN, Stocco DM.

Department of Cell Biology and Biochemistry, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, TX 79430, USA.

Abstract
The imidazole antifungal drugs econazole and miconazole have previously been shown to disrupt steroidogenesis in Leydig and adrenal cells by inhibiting 17alpha-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase (P450c17) enzyme activity, thus reducing the conversion of progesterone to androstenedione. However, a recent study in Y-1 adrenal cells indicated that these compounds may also reduce the availability of cholesterol to the cytochrome P450 side chain cleavage (P450(scc)) enzyme, the first enzyme in the steroidogenic pathway. Since the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) mediates the transfer of cholesterol from the outer to the inner mitochondrial membrane where the P450(scc) enzyme resides, an action which constitutes the rate-limiting and acutely-regulated step in steroidogenesis, we hypothesized that these drugs may also reduce StAR expression and/or activity. Our studies demonstrate that these drugs reversibly inhibited (Bu)(2)cAMP-stimulated progesterone production in a dose- and time-dependent manner in MA-10 cells without affecting total protein synthesis or P450(scc) and 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3beta-HSD) enzyme expression or activity. In contrast, they dramatically decreased (Bu)(2)cAMP-stimulated StAR protein expression post-transcriptionally. This study indicates that StAR protein is susceptible to inhibition by at least some imidazole compounds that inhibit steroidogenesis.
