Since there's only two months left of 2015, I wanted to know if anyone's thinking about starting a hair growth challenge for the new year, I have some ideas but they aren't organized yet.
I most likely won't start one but I am looking to join one 😊
I'm planning to do one. I think they are fun!

I guess we all have our own little personal challenges going on!
I have started a 2016 challenge. You can go check it out if you'd like.

I'm keeping an eye on the Rice Water Challenge, but I personally can't let rice go to waste like that...

For me and my particular situation, I've been doing something like daily oiling for most of January and I really like how my hair has not dried out at anytime, because it's been oiled just about every day! I've also done greenhouse some nights, too. This is my official challenge to myself for February, and then month to month.

Modified it from this lady who says she grew her 4b/c hair to her waist : How I Grew Long Natural Hair Using the 'Indian Oiling Method' | Curly Nikki | Natural Hair Care

And here's her site: nappilynigeriangirl: MY OILING REGIMEN UPDATE FOR HEALTHY HAIR

Anyone suffering from dry hair and tired of buying so many products will want to give this a try. I'm many years and thousands of $$$$ down the drain, so when it works for me I start talking. Peace and love

Hi Everyone,

I realize I am joining this challenge very late in the year, and many of you are probably close to the finishing (6 month) mark. I am going to do my first fermented rice water treatment over the weekend, and I was wondering if anyone has seen any results from this challenge. Would love to hear how it's been going so far for everyone!

Porosity ~ Medium/High
Shampoo-SMJBCO
Cowash-As I Am Coconut Co-wash
LOC: KCKT-Almond Oil-Devacurl Styling Cream-KCCC

I would love to join..
3c/4a, highly porous, fine hair.

Co-wash: Herbal Essences Bee Strong conditioner
Leave-in: Pantene Smooth and Silky Oil Replacement
Sealers: mineral oil, grease, shea butter
Styler: Ecostyler Olive Oil Gel

SL - APL - BSL - MBL - WL - TBL
Is it too late to join? I started in mid July. Just basic grow out. What is the fermented rice method???


Here is my progress so far. Starting from scratch, basically, since I've worn my hair short for the last two decades with only two grow-outs in between.


Would like to join others for moral support. Otherwise, I'm liable to go sit in the barber's chair the moment my hair tickles any part of my body.
