I am very honored to have had an overwhelming response to our Summer Castor Oil Challenge. The challenge ran from June 1, 2012 through to Sept 1, 2012 and over the 13 week period over 400 women joined in on a weekly basis to share their experiences with Castor Oil as well. During this time we also shared information about our personal lives and journeys to encourage a strong sisterhood bond.
Results after using castor oil varied from woman to woman because we all had different goals. Many of us united to grow longer, thicker, and fuller hair, but there were many amongst us that just wanted to finally commit to taking care of their hair on a consistent basis.
At the conclusion of the challenge I asked all of you to share your feedback on this challenge and most of the feedback was positive. I’d like to highlight a few participant comments:
Tishana Trainor: My growth was amazing! I actually got 2 inches which is a half inch more than my usual!
Jennifer Westbrooks: I have discovered how amazing castor oil is and I am in love, lol!
Nicole Lucien: Love, Love, Love it. So glad that I signed up for the summer challenge and encourage those who are wondering to try it out. It really is a trial and error process to find what works for YOUR hair.
Miakhyrra: I have to say, even though I was lazy sometimes I still noticed more growth than I expected. And I would say it is a little more than average for me. And I shed a good bit, even when I’m as tender as baby’s skin with my hair, so to still see the growth I achieved surprised me in an awesome way.
Shanese Plummer-Bandy: I am shocked to see how much my hair has grown. And also my hair is a lot thicker which is why I did the challenge. I got about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of growth.
