    Posted: Dec 13 2012 at 12:01pm
Hello, everyone! I am currently doing the long term transition to natural hair. I am 4 months post relaxer and have about 1 or 2 inches of new growth. I plan on doing the big chop 5 months from now if my new growth dont reach at least 4 inches. So I decided to do a Hair challenge for 5 months to see if my hair will grow 4 inches or more. Anyone can join this challenge. I was going to alternate b/t crochet braids and long braids.
I have rules but you can break them.
Rules!Star
1.Leave extentions in for at least 4 weeks or at most 5 weeks
2.While the braids are in wash them every week or every other week and moisturize your scalp daily
3.After you take your hair down wash it and do transitioning hairstyles for a week or two
4.Then put braids or crochet braids in and repeat steps 1, 2,and 3.Smile
 
I'm looking forward to the challenge, even if I do it by myself. I will keep track of the growth by taking pictures and measuring my hair. By the end of the five months I will post a video of my 5 months hair growth journey on my youtube.
 
CHALLENGE BEGINS:DEC.31, 2012

I'll join your challenge, but I will not be using extensions.

From today and throughout 2013 I plan on only washing my hair every 2 weeks to cut down manipulation.

My go-to styles will be pinned up twists, buns or wigs.


Wash day plan:

pre-poo
shampoo
DC or Cassia overnight
Next day- blowdry and style

During the week- moisturize and seal at night before bed
oil scalp every few days

Take vitamins daily:
Moisture Rich - 2 spoons daily
MSM- 1 spoon daily
Vitamin c
horsetail
b complex
fish oil
garlic
vitamin d

Cassia is a plant that is dried and made into a powder.
I mix it with conditioner oil and warm water then I leave it in my hair overnight.

It has similar conditioning properties of henna, but the effects do not last as long and its not as messy as a henna application.

Hi!!!!
This is like the perfect challenge for me!
I'm moving across country to attend school and my mom offered
me a french braid protective style for a month at a time. I assume
she'll teach me how to do it myself once it's done but yeah, I 
think this is a great way for me to hit waist length.
  - Moisturize my scalp with shea butter and WGO hair moisturizer
  - MAYBE I'll GHE for a few times a week, not sure how it'll make my hair look lol.
  - Co-wash at least once a week with Organix Coconut Milk

Happy hair growth!

This challenge looks like it was a flop.

Are there any active challenges down here?
