That's great news! So bring on the 2014 growthathon, I think I will start a thread for BSL/MBL 2014 as I'm almost kissing BSL now. Smile
 
Yes please start a challenge. I will join and be active.
MBL chasing sistahs (such as yourself) will be such an encouragement to see in the same challenge.
 
I will keep a lookout for the challenge!!
 
Silly question.. but what is fortnight? Is that 4 days?
 
Right now I'm washing every 3-4 days, but I am considering going to 1x a week during the cold season.

fortnight = 2 weeks/14 days Smile When summer comes around again probably will go back to once a week.

At the moment my hair on the sides and back are growing fast which pulls down between APL - BSB but my crown and front seem to be playing catch up so I think the challenge will help even things out.

OK..

crossing my fingers with this.. since using the amla powders, it seems my "scalp" feels/breathes better. 

Plus, i'm doing the garlic/onion juice  mixed with Mega growth oil. 2x a day..

Once at night before i baggy, and when i awaken/massage my scalp. i apply it.

Mixing it with an oil (Mega growth  and JBCO) dilutes the smell.. thus, i'm not running around the hospital or the gym smelling like a hamburger with lettuce, ketchup, pickles, EXTRA onions and garlic fries..

Ouch

another tip for wig wearers with fast drying (highly porous?) fine, 4c/z hair.

I've noticed at the end of the day? i hear an occasional small "snap" when i take off my mesh wig cap.Ouch

If you spritz your hair for moisture? why not the wig cap? 

thus, after i've moisturized/sealed, i take the dry wig cap, give it a moisturizing spritz as well, and place it on my head before putting on my wig.

One, it keeps the wig cap from sucking the moisture out of your hair, and the wig  on top of it helps retain moisture.

I have no idea how this works for other hair textures?  but it definitely cuts out the wig cap pulling on 4c/z hair.. I only use the MESH wig caps, because they're more "breathable" and they stretch better.

I am finding that my hair does so much better when I pay more attention to the pH of the products I use. I am going to pH test all my Shampoos and Conditioners. Opening cuticles(higher pH) and closing them(lower pH) continually, IMO weakens the hair. IDK, just thinking out loud

Perhaps your products are listed Smile.  If not, it may help other lurkers.

Nubian Heritage hair products is better than Shea Moisture (for my hair).  How is that possible?  Plus this thermal serum by Strength of Nature or Roots of Nature knocks.

DO NOT BUY GROGANICS DHT BLOCKER "Head Full of Hair"...

i read about this crap on one of the banners.  Tried looking up the ingredients and could not find them for the life of me.  But their description: Exotic berries/fruit/nuts from Brazil and Australia.

Okay, here's the ingredients list:

Water: That must come from Australia
Mineral Oil: That too, must come from Australia
Olive Oil: Oh, THAT'S what the BRAZILIANS use.. who knew??
Petroleum:  okay... Brazil/Australia, local diesel engine
Vitamin E: That gets a pass
Propylene Glycol: Nice food additive for livestock (now we're talkin')

Stearic Acid, Lanolin, Saw Palmetto (The DHT blocker #9 on the ingredients list), Cammomile extract, oat extract, and fragrance.

I added a small amount of this to my moisturizer/growth aide.  I didn't want to use Mineral Oil/Petroleum, full strength on my hair.  Thus, 1 or 2 TBSP. in my usual concoction.  Woke up this morning with a zit on my scalp.
Ouch

That's my signal to not go "full board" with this crap.
