Listerine for Promoting Hair Growth

I read on here that Listerine is useful in promoting hair growth. Does anyone know what kind to use (ie mint, etc)? Also if you're familiar with this could you please walk me through a step by step as to how to apply the Listerine? Thanks a bunch.

Regular Full-Strength Listerine Spray

Listerine is meant to kill germs that cause bad breath, but some people claim that regular full-strength Listerine works to help hair grow fast. I recently overheard a beauty operator advising a client to spray regular full-strength Listerine onto her hair after washing and towel drying it. This experienced beautician said to massage it into the scalp, and allow it to remain on the head instead of rinsing it away. The client was concerned about the scent, but she was advised it would dissipate as the Listerine dried.

This natural way to help locks grow fast sounds like it's worth a try, but if you have sensitive skin, or if you're concerned about the possibility of an allergic reaction, try placing a small amount on the inside of your forearm first. If redness or irritation occurs, opt for a different method, and save the Listerine for its intended use. Good luck.

Listerine, the plain type is good to stop hair loss. It is an old remedy for people who have a greasy scalp. Vinegar does the same thing. iI is the acidity of the product which an cure scaly type of seborrhea and maybe your hair grows better after using Listerine if you have this specific problem.

What are you all talking about is a candida over-growth. The Listerine & the vinegar will both kill it, but if your scalp has it, you'd do better to attack it from the inside. Candida can cause many awful things. The least of which is a bad scalp. I'd look up on the net, candida signs & symptoms, then see if anything else fits. It isn't something you want to ignore.
