Castor Oil Challenge

Saturday, December 25, 2010

Hey Loves! Guess who is doing a hair challenge? I figured I would try to take on a challenge that would help me enforce a hair regimen. I joined with a bunch of people from the Curly Nikki Forum. Here are the instructions that I must follow:

1-apply castor oil to scalp at least twice a week, more often depending onhow quickly it is absorbed. You can start this on a day when you wash your hair as the scalp will be clean.
1a-use extra virgin castor oil or just ensure that the oil has no preservatives or salt.
2-do not rinse the castor oil out until your next wash day, giving the oil more time to penetrate the scalp.
3-do not use any other growth aides on your scalp.
Now this last one does not say anything about putting stuff on the actual hair just nothing else on the scalp. You can continue to moisturize the length of your hair as you normally do.

I am going to post pictures each week of my progress. I am not really expecting any significant growth or anything but i thought it may  be fun considering how i am trying to get to know Toni even better. I figure that this will help me to understand what rate She grows and if Castor Oil really does agree with my hair. I don't see why it wouldn't though.

A little information on Castor Oil:

  • Castor oil contains Omega-9 fatty acids which help moisturize the hair and the scalp preventing both from becoming dry.
  • Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained from the castor bean
  • It can be used as a cooking agent and for skin needs
  • It is used to strengthen and thinking hair. It can also promote hair growth
  • This Oil can be made into a soap

 

I will be doing this for a month (I started on December 18th). If you would like to join please comment. The more the merrier!
