hi everyone I've been lurking on this site for a while and I finally decided to join. I started the monistat challenge on february 15. The results were not immediate but I continued to use and measure. My hair texture is 3c/4a. I keep my hair in plaits and when I measured on 3-7-12 my hair was 28 1/4". I measured again today 3-12-12 because I noticed the growth and my hair is 28 1/2". I'm very excited, but to be sure, I'm going to continue my daily monistat usage and measure again in another 5 days to check my progress. I will keep everyone posted on the results. At one point in my life, I had hip length hair but due to chemicals my hair suffered tremendous damage. I have been chemical free for 2 years now and praying to reach hip length again.
