Ladies this is the challenge some of you asked for. Lets do it again!
(Please read this whole page, some of your questions may be answered.)
Are you experiencing slow growth? (slow growth is 1/8 to 1/4 an inch per 4 to 6 weeks)
Are you having problems with your hair retaining moisture?
Are do you just want to increase your normal growth rate?
If u answered yes to any of these questions, then I recommend you try the Greenhouse Effect to stimulate your hair growth and enable you to keep moisture in your hair. And we know if u can keep your hair from drying out and popping then this will help you retain length.
The GREENHOUSE EFFECT TECHNIQUE
is simple: At bedtime, with or without oils, put your hair in a ponytail or your chosen style, and wrap your hair in a plastic bag, then apply a scarf. Remove in the morning and allow 10 to 20 minutes to dry and style your hair as usual.
BEDTIME: USE OF OIL IS OPTIONAL, APPLY PLASTIC BAG, APPLY SCARF.
MORNING: REMOVE BAG AND SCARF, ALLOW 10 TO 20 MINUTES FOR YOUR HAIR TO DRY.
YOUR HAIR SHOULD BE DAMP BUT NOT SOAKING WET.Do the GHE 3 times a week.LADIES YOU MAY HAVE TO MODIFY THIS DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF STYLE YOU WEAR.
JUST REMEMBER THE MAIN IDEAL IS TO CREATE A STEAM EFFECT ON THE SCALP, THIS STEAM EFFECT PENETRATES TO THE HAIR ROOT AND STIMULATES YOUR NORMAL GROWTH RATE. And the plastic bag and scarf traps the steam in and it moisturizes you hair from the root to the ends. Thus eliminating dry hair and breakage issues.
I just finished a GHE challenge with some other nice ladies on this forum, achieving one inch of new hair growth in just 7 weeks. Normally for me, my hair would of grown 1/2 inch in 7 weeks, so I am well pleased with my results.
HERE IS MY ROUTINE USING THE GHE:
I did the GHE 3 nights a week.
I did not apply product or oil at bedtime. I applied product in the morning.
Washed my hair once a week.
On wash days, I do a stimulating scalp scrub.
The only hair growth supplements I take are Biotin, 5,000 mcg. I take biotin once a day with my multi vitamin and food.
In the mornings I apply a good quality shea butter to feed my hair roots. The shea butter is mixed with coconut oil and clove oil.
I wear my hair in 2 strand twist.
Following this routine consistently I doubled my normal hair growth rate. And my hair stayed moisturized so I retained the length. Thats all you do ladies, try it if you like, you will probably achieve more growth than I did. HHJGHE Challengers: Starting length:
