Friday June 1, 2012 – Wednesday June 7, 2012
This is the first week of the challenge and I’m sure we are all so very motivated. I know I’m personally excited to see the results over the next 3 months. My hair usually grows at an average rate of 1/2 inch per month, so without the challenge, I could expect to see 1.5 inches of new growth. So then with the challenge I expect to see more than that. Perhaps 2 inches? Well at the conclusion of the Spring challenge I saw 2 inches over the 3 months so that will be my goal this time as well.
When I signed up for this challenge, I said I would apply castor oil to my scalp 3x a week, seal with castor oil when I style my hair and use castor oil during my pre-poo. I’ll start applying it to my scalp tonight. My wash day is Saturday so I’ll be pre-pooing with it and sealing my hair when I style. So excited!!
