Can anyone suggest the minimum length of time one can leave Mico 2% Cream on the scalp before shampooing? (to obtain sufficient benefits from the Miconazole). For example, would enough Miconazole Nitrate be absorbed after 4 hours? 6 hrs? ... Or do you REALLY have to leave the Mico Cream on your scalp for 12+ hrs for proper absorption? (I have long, fine, noticeably thinning/thin hair, so leaving all this gunk on my hair for long periods of time is proving embarrassing! It looks lank, stringy & even thinner and stragglier than usual. Ugh - hair loss is CRUEL!) Thanks for any opinions on MN.
