Castor Oil Challenge
I decided to join the 2nd Castor Oil Challenge on Hairlista.com that started on Wednesday April 22, 2009.
Castor oil is said to generate hair growth and thicken the hair.
Lord knows I don't need any more thickness but I'd LOVE to have enough hair for a bun/low ponytail for the summer.
The challenge runs from April 22, 2009 through July 22, 2009.
Based on the results I could find, people were able to grow and RETAIN an average of 1 1/2 to 2 inches of hair in the two month span. Sounds hard to believe in my opinion. LOL
I'm a skeptic that loves a challenge so I can't see a promising healthy, natural alternative to faster route to growth and thicker hair without giving it a try for myself.
There are two levels to the challenge. The first level requires that you apply Castor oil to your scalp two times a week. The advanced level requires that you apply Castor oil to your scalp once per week.
I will be participating in the first level, applying Castor oil to my scalp two times a week.
When I wash my hair tomorrow, I'll take a picture of the length and thickness freshly cleansed and post an update at the end of the challenge.
If I don't get to feeling overly oily and my adult acne stays under control, I'll be able to do it.
I started the challenge two days because I knew I'd be washing my hair this weekend.
So far, using only Ohm Body's Sweet Hair Pudding, which I previous reviewed, and castor oil this past week has resulting in some serious curl popping going on. lol. I'm loving the combination.
