The Ultra Super CRAZY GROWTH Overload Challenge!
                                         and the goal is to try to get 3 inches in 3 months!!

Timeline...
  • opening : january 1, 2013
  • closing : march 31, 2013
Rules... 
to get all those inches, we're combining multiple growth practices into one challenge! consider this a hair growth boot camp, hahaha. the number one rule is to not be lazy. the second is to do your best, and not get discouraged. pick a minimum of 6 of the listed practices for better growth. growth aid usage is mandatory. 
  • use at least one growth aid 3x a week
  • protective style 20/7
  • dust once a month ( not the ends )
  • ghe at night 2x a week
  • massage your scalp 3x a week
  • take a growth supplement regularly 
  • cleanse scalp thoroughly 1-2x a week
  • maintain ph of scalp by doing acv rinses every wash
  • baggy ends an hour a day
everyone must also eliminate breakage by the best of there abilities by keeping up a their hair's moisture/protein balance. heat styling tools such as blow-drying and flat-ironing are prohibited! you can live without them for 3 months. and no trimming either! if you need one, try to get it done before this challenge starts. post an update post at least four times a month. after the 3 months and everyone posts their last picture, everyone will vote to see who wins the following categories: Shaggy to Silky (3rd, most improved condition), Thin to Thickest (2nd, most improved density), & Runt to Rapunzel (1st, most improved length). the prizes are everyone's praises and envies!

Participants...

  • Put as little heat on my hair as possible unless I'm doing a very infrequent length check.
  • Spend as little time thinking about my hair as possible.

  • gro-aut oil at least 2x a week
    • if I'm wearing my hair out, I GHE on the days I use my growth oil
  • daily vitamins
  • daily water intake (64oz ea. day)
  • daily moisturizing spritz on my hair whether I'm PSing or wearing it out
  • don't obsess over my hair - keep it super low maintenance

Thanks for starting this challenge yahya! Sign me up!!! I haven't got my relaxer yet because it's raining a lot so I don't have a progress pic yet. Funny enough I was writing a calendar for 2013 last night and decided to make a personal growth challenge for the first 3 months of 2013. Even started looking for the right growth aids to try. I'll post the application once I get my appointment done. One question though, does anyone know where I can buy the Shapley's Original M-T-G TRIAL SIZE online?
