Castor Oil Challenge Fall 2012 – REGISTRATION

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

The challenge will begin on Sept 1, 2012 and end on Dec 1, 2012.

The Summer 2012 Challenge has been extremely successful, with over 400 women participating and dedicating themselves to consistent use of castor oil in their weekly regimen.  Rubbing castor oil on your scalp and the roots of your hair will regenerate new hair growth within months. This will also thicken thinning hair. The anti-bacterial and anti-fungicidal properties of Ricinoleic Acid in castor oil protects the scalp and hair from infections which can cause hair loss. The Omega-9 fatty acids in castor oil also nourish the hair and prevent the scalp from drying. Castor oil is a humectant as it draws moisture into the hair and skin. Applying castor oil on hair will keep it looking soft, shiny and strong.

The  picture on the left was the beginning of the Spring castor oil challenge (3/2012), the pic on the right is during the summer castor oil challenge (7/2012), during the summer castor oil challenge. See how lucious castor oil has made my hair?

Challenge Goals

The goal of is this challenge is to grow your hair thick & long over a 3 month period. While we understand that your hair will not grow to waist length in 3 months, we know that with consistent use of castor oil you WILL reap great benefits. This challenge is our way of motivating you to partake in a routine healthy hair regimen using castor oil and we hope that you will be motivated enough to continue this regimen after the challenge.

Results

Castor Oil Challenge 13 Week Growth ProgressThis is my growth progression during the Spring Castor Oil Challenge, my hair during week 1 ws just below the chin and my hair during the final week had surpassed my chin. My growth was AMAZING!!!!  I usually get a half of an inch each month, therefore, I should have gotten 1.5 inches during this challenge, HOWEVER my hair grew a whopping 2 inches!!!

My har after 21 weeks of using castor oilNow this is even more motivation. I continued on into our Summer castor oil challenge, which ends on Sept 1, 2012 and my hair growth has continued to excel!  In this pic, I have been using castor oil for 21 straight weeks.

Using castor oil regularly in my regimen. has been extremely beneficial and I am soooo in love with the results. Not only did I get a half of an inch more than my normal average, I got soft, silky, shiny smooth, healthy hair.

During the Summer challenge I used Coconut Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) and Pharmacy CO yes I know it says laxative.

    3.How will you be using your Castor Oil? I will be using it as a sealer, after my leave-in (daily), and as a prepoo baggie on Friday nights. So I’ll prolly be applying it everyday, but at least 4 times.I’m subscribed to ERRTHANG…

  • Gail8403

    I will be using JBCO extra dark mixed with pure coconut oil.
    My hair is right below my nose in the front, to my ears on the sides and at my neckline in the back…the middle of my head is the longest but I’ll be doing a trim next week to get rid of some of the dead permed ends.
    I’ll be using the CO for everything…pre poo, massaging my scalp, regular sheen…pottery much anytime I feel my hair needs moisture that’s the oil I will use. Length pics coming soon!

    Hi.  I’m in for the Fall challenge.  It’s good for me to have a steady regimen, and this challenge keeps me honest, consistent and, well, challenged!  My hair from the summer challenge has been softer, I’m loving the texture and it’s very moisturized. I’m on a borrowed computer, so I’ll post a picture later.  The front of my hair is just under my nose, the left and right sides are almost collarbone length, and the back is shoulder length.  It’s thin just below my crown (where I sleep on it), so I plan on concentrating on that area.  I think I’ll practice sleeping differently too!

I have to give this a try and see how it goes. I’m really looking forward to seeing the results.

    Is Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Food (like a jar of
    grease) just as good as the Oil? And could I get one that has coconut in it or
    straight up JBCO best?

    • http://kinkycurlycoilyme.com/ Jenell : BlakIzBeautyful

      No grease. We need pure oils to reap ultimate benefits. You can use coconut black castor oil. But not pure coconut oil.

  • JazzFest

    I only put oils on my hair once or twice a week so I guess if I join the challenge (if I can get oil in time!) then this will definitely be a change for me. I have heard some naturals get a crazy itch from putting castor oil on their scalp so I never tried. I did try putting it on my hair last winter and it made it very soft. Has anyone else heard of castor oil making scalps itchy?

    .
    I will be mainly doing this castor oil challenge on my daughter’s hair. She recently suffered from a case of ringworm in her hair, which caused major hair loss. I never new the effects of caster oil until reading about this challenge. Her hair is still long and full but the infected area has major damage and hair loss. After consulting my physician and receiving antibiotics for the fungus he says that there in no damage to her hair follicles but it can take from 8 months to a year before her hair fully grows backs. I will use this challenge to see if it will speed up the process.
    1. Regular Pharmacy Castor Oil
    2. Front, below chin, sides: shoulder length
    3. I will be using about 5x times a week to massage into scalp and around edges.

    Hi! 1) I will be using Jamaican black castor oil. 2) The front/crown of my hair is about eyebrow length, but I am growing out of a short cut, so the sides and back are much shorter, just a few inches. 3) I will use the castor oil daily to grow out my damaged edges. I recently had cornrows, which were much too tight, and my edges are now much thinner than they ever were ( I have always been thin there).

  • Bethany

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Bethany, and I’m quite new to all of this
    seemingly amazing natural beauty and healthy hair care lifestyle. I’m so very
    excited! I’ve always had rather short hair, and that is only because I would
    cut my hair no less than every 2 weeks: my hair grows pretty fast, but I never
    really learned how to care for long hair, so I would just chop all my hair off
    every other week…silly, I know.

    During this 3 month challenge, I am determined to just let
    my hair grow how it wants, with no excessive cutting, shearing, etc.…. I am
    excited to feel and reap the benefits from this challenge! :-)

    1.
    I will be using Regular Pharmacy Castor Oil. I purchased it today from a local
    grocery store for $1.99 for a 4oz container. Great price!!

    2.
    My hair just barely touches my shoulders, it
    covers my whole neck. I would say my hair is about 7-8 inches long. No cutting
    during this challenge for me!

    3.
    My hair is quite thin and I’m not really a fan
    of having greasy hair (I’ve heard a few stories about Castor oil causing lots
    and lots of greasiness) and my hair does become greasy very, very easily.
    However, I plan to apply my Castor oil at least 4 times per week and just wear it
    in a bun and away from my face and clothing. I plan to implement Castor oil as
    a sealant, on my scalp, my ends and for hot oil treatments.
    Currently, my hair is just a bit longer than in these photos, but these photos are a pretty accurate illustration of my hair length, texture, ect. right now.
    I’m excited to complete this challenge with you all!

My problem area (the crown) is about 4-5 inches (guessing). I haven’t been to great about measuring my growth. Everything has been by eye. With this challenge, I am really curious to see my growth in inches, so I need to get my ruler out!

    3. How My will you be using your Castor Oil?
    I will be oiling my edges and eyebrows nightly, doing light scalp massages every other night, sealinging my hair after leave-in, and with deep conditioning treatments. So basically, it will be my go to oil but I am trying to keep up with my summer challenge routine to continue to see great results.

    4. Attach at least one photo, showing your length. Since we’re finishing up the summer challenge and taking photos for next weeks check-in, I will upload an image soon!

    Im doing the Castor Oil Challenge to see if it will actually work on my hair. I have had several failed attempts at being natural. I would give it a couple of months and then I would give up once it became tough, and go back to the creamy crack. But this time around is different. And Im hoping that this challenge will teach me more about my hair and how to be patient with my hair and growth process.
    1. I hope I willl be able to use the JBCO, but if Im unable to find it, I will use regular pharmacy castor oil.
    2. The front of my hair is almost to my eyebrows and the sides are to the bottom of my ear.
    3. Im thinking about using the Castor Oil on my edges and as a treatment for my dry scalp as well as a nightly treatment for my hair.

    Hello all, so im finally on the band wagon for the castor oil challenge!!! yay for me.. pssstt a little secret is that I was doing it with you all the last go around just never signed up or checke in! lol crazy right! well here I am.. why and I doing this, well this will keep me on my toes. I have a thin spot in the front of my head where my hair needs to be thickened and protected from breakage. I will be using the pharmacy castor oil with added essential oil Rosemary. I usually massage oils at least 3-4 times a week so I believe adding the castor oil is just an added bonus. my hair is pretty thin so i will have to be careful in the amount that I use, I hate limp hair! The front is chin legnth, the sides are past my collar bone and the back is about an inch past the base of my neck…. crazy mesurements right? lol oh well Im reaching for BSL.. so here I am … I cant wait to communicate with my natural family. Good Luck to everyone! XOXOXOXO’s

  • http://twitter.com/IamNads Nadine Stewart

    I did the summer castor oil challenge but dropped out near to the end because I couldn’t resist trimming off my damaged ends. Didn’t see the point in sticking with the challenge because my trimming my ends, the length checks were redundant. Anyway, this time I’m in it for the long haul AND I’ve convinced a friend to do it with me too!

    1) I will be using JBCO. I still have some Rosemary-infused JCBO left over from the summer challenge. When that runs out, I have regular JCBO that I’ll use.
    2) I had approx an inch trimmed off so my hair is shorter than before but it’s thicker and feels much better. The front touches my top lip, the side is just past my collarbone and the back exactly reaches my collarbone.
    3) I plan to use my castor oil on my edges daily, to seal my hair as part of the LOC method and also on my scalp at least 3 times a week.

  • Stacy Mucci

    For the Fall 2012 Castor Oil Challenge I will be using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO). Due to hair breakage during the last month of a twelve month transitioning period, I decided to do the BIG chop. Due to the breakage my hair is three different lengths and I didn’t want to cut it even shorter to even it out. The back of my hair is 2 1/2 inches long. The sides of my hair are 2 inches long. And the front of my hair is 1 1/2 inches long.

    I plan on applying my JBCO to my edges and scalp as well as using it to seal my hair at least 3x a week. I am contemplating a protective style (a full weave) for an uncoming vacation and should I wear this protective style for any part of the challenge, I will be applying it to my edges and scalp only.

But my main focus for this challenge are my EDGES!! I plan to apply pure castor oil, (no mixture of oils) to my edges DAILY. The last challenge I focused more on my length and my edges didnt see the benefits of castor oil as much as I wanted them to. So its all about filing in these edges this time around =]

  • Happiness!!

    I am entering today. This is my most recent photo (it was literally taken yesterday, August 29th). It is my hair straightened and trimmed. I had some thinning and it looks uneven because a beautician hacked away on one section of my hair, this past June 30th. I will be getting Jamaican Black Castor Oil, but right now I simply have regular castor oil (one from Wal-Mart and one from the Heritage Store The Palma Christi version). I plan doing it five times out of the week via the greenhouse effect and massaging. In the front, I think it is around my chin or a little bit lower. The sides seem about shoulder length or a little past it and the back I think is bra strap length.

      • Happiness!!

        Thank you very much! I am still learning about my hair lol good luck to you too ^_^

    • Tiffany Hines

      I have a question, I have been seeing people post about the greenhouse effect, but what is it exactly?

      • Happiness!!

        You can do it in different ways. One way is spritzing your hair with water until it is damp. The other way is using oil like olive oil, coconut oil, etc. Then you get a plastic bag or shower cap and place it on your head. Then you put on a satin/silk scarf or even a hat and you go to be that way. The greenhouse effect (also known as GHE) uses your body heat and steams and conditions the hair while you are sleeping, like deep conditioning. Some see droplets of water in the cap when they awake, others don’t. However, the GHE mimics summer conditions, I assume, because the sauna like environment opens up the pores to let moisture in, kind of like the humid summer heat. It is good to do it during the winter especially, since the sun is usually gone (depending on where you live). Hair grows faster in the summer because of the vitamin D emitting from the sunlight which causes the growth and also because we are more active. Be out in the sun as much as you can, especially for children. Children used to develop rickets because they stayed inside all of the time and had vitamin D deficiencies. You could try Cod Liver Oil during the winter to supplement for the lack of sun.

        • sugabrown

          I plan to try the “greenhouse” tonight for myself and daughters. My youngest daughter’s head usually sweats alot at night anyway so this may give her boost to know there are women wrapping their head in plastic to get the same effect..lol :) Happy steaming!

The length of my hair in the front comes down to my chin, my hair on the sides comes down to my shoulders and my hair in the back goes down just below my shoulders. I will use the castor oil to grease my scalp and the back of my head. My hair is really thin in the back so I’m doing this challenge in hopes that it will help the hair grow. Wish me luck.

    Hi! My name is Charnee and this will be my first challenge! I am super excited to see what results I get. I did the BIg Chop in the first week of July. In my entry photo, you wil see what I started with in July at the bottom right; and, a photo of the growth after one month (definitely a TWA lol…). I will be using a 100% castor oil that I purchased from an ethnic foods store (it is also included in the entry photo). I plan to use it in many ways. Right now, I use it along with the Cantu leave-in to help seal in the moisture. I am also going to melt it down with some pure shea butter as a seal, use it to oil my scalp, and any other way I learn to use it along my journey!! Happy growth ladies!!! :)

    • Gwenda King

      Hey Chakkia!
      Have you already tried it as a hot oil treatment? If so, how did that work for you? I need some ideas!

      • Tiffany Hines

        Hey Gwenda! I use JBCO and EVOO as a hot oil treatment. I mix both, warm it up in the mircowave for maybe 15 sec, pur it on my hair and twist it. You can sit under a hood dryer with a plastic cap or you can just do the plastic cap and gone on about your business for awhile and then rinse it out.

        • Gwenda King

          I am going to give that a go! Do you do this before or after washing?

          • Tiffany Hines

            I do it after. I shampoo, conditioner, then the hot oil. I usually alternate between a deep conditioner and hot oil treatment.

    1. I will be using Cold Pressed/Cold Processed Castor Oil (Whole Foods)

    3. I will be using the oil from my edges, sealing in moisture, in my pre-poo, & on my scalp, particularly more on my bald spots above my ears. I have had seborrhea (scalp condition) since middle school. At the time, I was advised my the dermatologist to stop relaxing my hair (go figure!) or the hair would continue to fall out. But I wasn’t hearing that as a pre-teen. So here I am 2 years post-relaxer, 1 year, six months post-BC. :-) I have been using this Castor Oil for about 1 1/2 years after researching different oils that simulate hair growth.

    Hello,
    I’m going to enter the castor oil challenge for the Fall ’12.
    * I will be using Blue Magic Castor oil and also JBCO once purchased.
    * The front of my hair is up to the top of my nose. Sides are up to my chin and the back up to my shoulder.
    * I will attempt to use the castor oil 3-5x a week on my scalp, my thinning edges and as a sealant.
    My hair will even be in braids or kinky twist troughout the contest so I won’t be able to do an once a week check in.
    So excited and anticipating great results in a few months!!
    This is a post braid pic and a pic w/ my natural hair cornrowed and twisted, will be posting a recent pic the minute I take my kinky twists out.

    Heyyy Everyone!! My name is Kim and I am excited to enter this challenge.
    I have been transitioning out of a perm for 5 months now and am having strong urges to touch up those kinky roots, but I WILL NOT DO IT!! So, with that being said I have about 2.5-3 inches of new growth and the rest is permed. I am not doing the big chop, just trimming every two-three weeks.
    After much research about natural hair, I am excited to find the 411 in JBCO. I have super kinky hair, a 4 or worse I guess, but am excited to try and tame this mane.
    1. What type of Castor Oil will I be using?
    I will be using Tropicle Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor Oil
    2. How long is my hair now-front, sides, and back?
    The front of my hair is right at my upper lip, the sides are neck length and the back is right at the top of my back or just below the end of my neck (except for the nape which is just growing since I stopped perming it, which is about 1.5 inches or so long)
    3.How will you I using your Castor Oil?
    I will use on JBCO my Edges as they have almost disappered, on my Nape as the perm kept breaking it, onmy Scalp to try to thicken and tame, also I will use it to seal my edges preventing breaking as I transition from the perm and on MY EYEBROWS because they have thinned from years of plucking and wont grow back. I will use the JBCO 3-4x per week.
    4. Attach at least one photo, showing your length, to your comment. This photo will be your BEFORE to compare to your AFTER photo at the conclusion of the challenge.

    Hello I am entering the Castor Oil Fall 2012 Challenge! I want to see
    if Castor oil will truly make a difference in the length and I am
    excited to see the growth potential of my natural hair. I began my
    journey to Natural hair about 3 years ago, and it has been a roller
    coaster ride, filled with ups and downs and many dollars spent on all
    kinds of hair products. I have finally found that my hair likes the
    Shea Moisture products, Kinky curly and oils. But, I do mix and match my
    hair products, it is like a chemistry experiment trying to achieve and
    sustain moisture in my hair.

    1. What type of Castor Oil will you be using?

    Jamaican Black Castor Oil

    2. How long is your hair now-front, sides, and back?

    Today is August 31, 2012: my hair in the front comes to the
    top of my upper lip, the sides of my hair touch my collar bones, and
    the back reaches to the base of my neck.

    3.How will you be using your Castor Oil? I will be placing the Castor Oil on my

    Edges, Scalp, Sealing Hair, Hot oil treatments and will be applying the oil at least 3X’s a week.

    4. Attach at least one photo, showing your length, to your comment.

    DANG I hope I’m doing this right! I bought the regular castor oil from the laxative isle at Kroger! My fro is exactly 5 inches long, but my edges are quite thin & barely there.The front of my hair measures right between my eyes on my nose, the sides are directly at the end of my ear lobe. I have no idea how i will be using my castor oil as of yet, but i know it will be daily. in the meantime, I will figure out just how to post pics here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/tiffany.hines.92 Tiffany Hines

      Hey! I was having the same issue about the thinning edges. I wear alot of headbands and flowers in my fro, so I didn’t know if those accessories were pulling my hair out. But, anyway I use the JBCO on my temple area everyday and I can tell a difference right away.

      I need to get a hold of some Jamaican Black Castor Oil myself! Right now I am using some pharmacy grade Castor Oil until I can get ahold of the good stuff, lol! Good luck with the challenge Melv4192!

      • Tiffany Hines

        I’m using JBCO, but what is the difference?

        • Gwenda King

          I may be wrong, but from what I understand JBCo is a little more potent than regular pharmacy castor oil. I think the same goes for cold pressed castor oil. It is more potent than just plain castor oil.

    Hello all, this is my first Castor Oil Challenge, but from this point foward i will be includeing it in my routine.
    I will be using JBCO. My hair is to the tip on my nose in the front and to about my jaw bone on the sides. I also had a full sew-in and after I took it out now have tension alopecia on the crown of my head. I will be using the cator oil on my scalp, edges, nape, and in it is also in my shea butter mix I use for styling and daily moisture.

  • Tamora Smoots

    Hello, I will be using Sunny Isle’s Jamaican Black Castro Oil. Currently my hair in the back is bra strap length, the sides are a little bit past my arm pits, and the front is a little under my chin (due to a recent bang cut I did a few months ago). I will be using the oil 3 x’s a week and I will applying it to the scalp and around the edges of my hair line (except of the nape of my neck, the oil seems to make it itch REALLY bad). I can not wait to see the results! This is sooo exciting!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/tiffany.hines.92 Tiffany Hines

    Hello Beautiful Naturals,
    This is my first challenge thanks to a very PERSISTENT friend!
    1. What type of Castor Oil will you be using? I use JBCO
    2. How long is your hair now-front, sides, and back? The front reaching my TOP lip but I have some “stragglers” that reach my BOTTOM lip. The sides are
    between EAR and CHIN length, I guess that would be like my jaw line. My back which is a problem area that I’m working on is right below the NAPE of my neck.
    3.How will you be using your Castor Oil? I will be using it to massage my temple area, b/c it is slightly thinning. Also, around my neck, b/c it is the shortest and broke off due to me using a scarf vs. a bonnet. I love the JBCO and I mix it will a little EVOO when I twist and seal my hair at night, plus once a week in my own hot oil treatment when I sit under my hood dryer. I will try to use it at LEAST everyday, when I get lazy 4x (every other day).
    4. Attach at least one photo, showing your length, to your comment.
    I’m still trying to upload my pictures. I’ll just LOOK at everyone else’s while mine upload. :-)

      Welcome natural beauty from Italy! Your hair is super thick, how long have you been natural?

      • FioreJosy

        Hi Tiffany,
        Sorry for the late response, I did my last relaxer in july 2010 and i decided to do my big chop on 20th september 2010 (1 month of transition). I’m not convince to have a super thick hair,i think i have them super thin,…
        And you???
        What type of hair do you have?
        Are you natural or relax? (or transitionning?)
        How long have you been natural/ relaxed???
        Thank You very much for your welcome

        • Tiffany Hines

          Hey FioreJosy! I am natural. I have been relaxer free for TWO years! My hair is thick and pretty soft, kind of like cotton. I have always thought of myself as having COARSE hair, but I went to a natural hair store and someone told me it wasn’t coarse but, “fluffy like clouds.”

I will be using regular Castor Oil because I already have it in my cabinet. I will mainly use it to moisturize and seal my hair 3 x’s per week. I really hope it works because my hair refuses to grow and I want my hair to be strong and healthy.

    Hi loves!

    I am looking forward to this challenge and I am sure my hair is too! I have been natural now about 15 months. So this is perfect timing for me to try something new for hair growth since December is my annual length check via straightening.
    1) My oil of choice will be JBCO
    2) My lengths are: Front- Bottom of chin, Sides- about .5in away from collarbone, Back- shoulder length (pulled laterally) about 2in pass collarbone and Top- 7 or 8in last I measured earlier this Summer (see recent pics below from a co-wash)
    *Sorry for the low quality pics, after pics will be better*

    • http://twitter.com/Yaasmiyn_Co His Favorite

      Our hair is the same length, how long have you been natural? I feel my hair stopped growing for like a year. Lol I had to cut two inches from the front of my hair I had heat damage but the rest of our hair is the same length. So I was just wondering how long it took you to get there.

      • DawnieMich

        5 years! I had to cut my hair a few times because I dyed it and it got so damaged that there wasn’t anything that I could do but cut it. I recently cut it again into a style. Shorter on the sides and back, longer on the top. The back is growing out though. Time for another cut but I’ll have to wait until after the challenge.

  • TamarusS

    Okay, I’ve thought about it and I’m going to give this another try. This time, I will complete the entire challenge.
    1. I will primarily use Jamaican Black Castor Oil, although I still have some generic drug store kind that I will probably try to use up.
    2. Right now my hair is eye brow length in the front, ear lobe length on the sides and just to the base of my neck in back.
    3. I will use my castor oil approximately three times a week on my edges, to seal my ends, and during scalp massages. I’m thinking I may give the hot oil treatment thing a try; I’ve never done one before, so this may be a good time to experiment.
    I’m so excited!
