Hair growth challenge for 2014?

Like Tree8Likes

Are there any challenges for 2014 yet? The year is about to begin, only 1 month left.
I'm looking for partners to start a challenge of consistent growth and length retention of around 1 inch per month for 2014.

Anybody else interested so we can suggest and draw out the rules for the challenge?

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.

I'm game! I started about 5 minutes ago.
Oh great! I'm thinking of starting a new thread to announce the challenge.

So, here are the RULES I came up with:

  1. Make sure you take a healthy diet with lots of water
  2. No or minimal heat styling (at most once a month)
  3. No harsh chemical treatments (relaxer overlap, overlapping color treatments or color with perm, etc)
  4. No excessive hair trimming (at most 3 times per year)
  5. No fine-toothed combs or brushes
  6. Low manipulation as much as possible
Those who join the challenge can choose to commit to some or to ALL of the rules as suits them best.


And here are some suggested sub-challenges that we can choose from every 2 months:

  1. Satin or silk scarf or pillowcase for night time
  2. Finger detangling. No popping/tearing hair with combs and brushes
  3. Baggying
  4. Greenhouse effect
  5. Inversion
  6. Castor oil scalp stimulation
  7. Henna
  8. Got anything else in mind?


Everybody who joins the challenge should state the following:

  1. Curl type:
  2. Strand thickness:
  3. Porosity:
  4. Current length (including a photo if possible):
  5. The length I aim for:
  6. The challenge rules that I commit to: (plz pick from the blue list above)

  7. Other techniques I intend to use for hair growth and retention. For example:
    • Protective styling: braiding, bunning, etc
    • No poo/low poo/co-washing
    • Regular scalp massage (what with?)
    • Vitamins and supplements (plz specify)
    • Other techniques (plz specify)
  8. Techniques and products you will use to keep your hair strong and moisturized. For example:
    • DC (what with? How often?)
    • PT (what with? How often?)
    • Leave in product
    • LOC method?
    • Others (plz specify)


We officially start by the first of January. But those who would like to cheat can start right away and enjoy the benefit of being one month/one inch ahead of themselves and their goals

We should report our progress at least once every 2 months (a photo of the achieved progress, the growth rate, the retained length in inches, compliance with all our commitments, any problems, setbacks, success stories, etc)

There is no need to straighten for measurements, you can measure the hair curly or just manually stretch it to make a measurement.
I'm in!

Not really a "challenge" type of person, but I do need to pay more attention to my hair. I've been seriously neglecting it.
