This sounds like a great challenge! My hair can definitely use some consistency and TLC. Unfortunately, I, too, am a Product Junkie, and jumping from product to product is doing absolutely nothing for my hair! I plan to kick the habit in 2013...lol...stability is KEY!

I have to start finding a consistent regimen for myself and sticking with it.
For the start of the year i was going to start a no heat, no manipulation challenge. I am going to eliminate a form of heat i used to use on my hair and i will deep condition and shampoo twice a month and condition bi-weekly. I'm also going to have a protective style in for 6 months starting january 1,2013 to June 5,2013. im going to drink ALOT more water and eat right. i will also allow myself to have a seven day pass of leaving my hair out during the six months which i can choose to wear my hair out back to back or once a month. if you would like to join me you can put the following info and post a picture every month or tell how your doing with the challenge....
Length: 5 1/2
Goal: 8 - 10
Products: peter coppola conditioner, leave-in , shea butter
Protective style/ low manipulation: braids, twists, weave
Cant wait to start this challenge

Choose 1 good hair care routine/regimen for 6 months and don't change it. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you don't change products. You can alternate between DC & PT etc as necessary but the routine should be consistent.

Starting January1, 2013 please post your regimen info, starting length & any other info you want to share.

If you fall off the wagon, no worries. Just go for as long as you can.

If you notice your hair doing anything interesting feel free to share.

PLEASE NOTE: Your chosen regimen/routine should be good. If doing the same thing for a month or so causes breakage, please make changes. No challenge is worth hair loss y'all.

Good luck!

Now that the 2012 Grow Out Challenge is finished, is anyone considering any interesting challenges for 2013? I'm thinking about a simple one:

Stick To It Challenge
Choose 1 hair care routine/regimen for 6 months and don't change it for anything. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you don't change products. You can alternate between DC & PT etc as necessary but the routine should be consistent.

This is going to be hard for me because I don't have the discipline to consistently keep a routine and I'm a product junkie. In the long run this should save me some money at the very least.

I'm establishing a new routine with my weekly curlformers sets so I guess I will hold fast to that from January to June. For me this means no WNGs until the summer time.

If all goes well I'll have 3 or 4 inches of growth.

Good luck to you ladies. *steps off the thread*


No, not really... I kinda wanna join, but apart from QB stuff, I don't have 6 months worth of anything. So if I joined it'd be a 'stick to it until it's finished' challenge.
Also, no way I can only use one cleansing product for 6 months or whatever. I love my Bobeams and I gots to rotate! They're not all the same.
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
Good luck to you ladies. *steps off the thread*

The goal is to stick with a regimen, whether its weekly or monthly, etc. & to avoid pjism.

For example I won't be trying the new SM products till the summer.
