It is December 1st and everyone is in that holiday "new year new me" mode and with that comes new challenges.
A few weeks ago I signed up for a Castor Oil 3 month hair challenge with kinkycurlycoilyme.com it started today and will run until March 1st. You ladies still have time to sign up and register for the challenge if your interested!
I know for me, I want the most awesome curly fro I can possibly handle and taking really good care of it is a part of that.
So the challenge consist of checking in weekly for questions and feedback with other naturals AND committing yourself to using Castor Oil at least three times a week during the three months.
BUT WHY CASTOR OIL??? Y THIS CHALLENGE???
Castor Oil is an excellent humectant for skin and hair. It helps with thinning hair and hair loss, and it prevents dry scalp.
I will be using Jamaican Black Castor Oil during this challenge for 2 reasons..
- I already have it in my cabinet
- This form of Castor Oil is raw and has kept most of its good stuff!
I still plan to weave up my natural hair some time in the next few weeks so that may prove to be a challenge for keeping up with the Castor Oil..
I am sealing my ends with my Castor Oil Mix
Massaging my scalp & edges
Pre-Poo'ing with a hot oil mix
After my install..
I can probably keep up with the last two from above but I have to come up with another use for it UNLESS I spritz with water and oil in between my tracks for extra moisture and sealing at the same damn time!
HERE IS MY CASTOR OIL MIX:
ROSEMARY OR LAVENDER (for smell)
Use equal parts of everything and shake! TA-DAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
I will check in with you dolls as often as possible and keep you up to date on the progress
