90 Day Hair Growth Challenge

The first month of the new year is almost over and I promised myself to start a hair challenge in 2015. I’m sharing this in case anybody wants to join in or at any other time of the year.

The hair growth challenge will be done with Castor Oil because it has great benefits such as:

Increase hair growth
Thickens hair, makes it fuller and shinier
Reduces hair damage/breakage
Deep conditions hair and prevents dry scalp/dandruff
Preventing split ends when applied to ends.

 

The rules of this challenge are quite simple:

Apply warm 100% castor oil at least 3-4 times a week and massage into scalp for five minutes (seven days a week is optional). I will be using Jamaican black castor oil by Tropical Isle. I will dillute the JBCO, with jojoba peppermint oil by Twocurlsonemission, twice a week, to make it less greasy. You can use any oil to dillute, such as olive oil or coconut oil.
Shampoo/Co-wash and condition only once every 8-10 days OR
Wear protective styles
No heat
Water intake: 2 liters.

 

I will start this challenge the 2nd of february until the 2nd of may and the hairstyles I will be doing are:

Wash n Gos
Curlformers/Flexi Rods heatless curls
Twist outs

 

I will measure and photograph my hair in the back, side and front in the beginning and every two weeks until the end. I will be uploading a post with the results and my experiences about this challenge at the end but I will give regular updates on our youtube channel.

I’m very curious about the results and if you are joining me good luck!

Top 5 Detangling Conditioners

Hi everyone!

Happy New Year! I hope everybody had a great Christmas Break. My hair was pretty much the whole Christmas break in a Flexi Rod and Curlformer style but now it is time for wash day again! The most dreadful thing about wash day is detangling my hair. So I have listed five great rinse out conditioners that will have your hair detangled very fast!

1. TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner

This is a silicone free conditioner that is creamy and gives a lot of slip. This is not only a great detangler but it makes curly hair so soft, that it also works great as a leave in conditioner.

What it says on the bottle
The TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner system, with natural aloe vera extract and avocado oil, moisturizes your hair to help protect from damage and breakage. Discover 10x stronger hair after just one use. Safe for color treated hair.

 

2. Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner for dry and damaged hair

The smell of this conditioner is amazing! You will need more than a dimesize amount and it gives a little less slip than the rest of the conditioners but the results are amazing. Very soft, manageable hair, and it works great as a leave in conditioner.

What is says on the bottle
why not give your dry hair a drink? I say you can never get too much of a good thing. so say “hello” to a deep dousing of lush hydration with my rich formula.

With one of these conditioners your wash day will be quicker than you think!
