    :orders:The Castor Oil Challenge 2010 is here.:orders:

    [​IMG]


    You have 1 month to go out and purchase your castor oil if you have none. You have the option of using whatever brand of castor oil you can get your hands on.


    Order online :user: or visit your local pharmacy or health store’s laxative section and pick up a bottle. :auto:


    *I recommend using 100% castor oil unrefined or cold pressed, none of that Hollywood Beauty stuff. :naughty:


    Rules :bat:
    - You must enter between Jan. 8 2010 and Feb. 8 2010 to be listed as a challenger and be entered into the drawing.


    -Once you enter you have 5 days to submit a starting photo Feb 8. 2010-Feb 12. 2010.


    - You may use any type of castor oil you choose.


    -You must apply the castor oil to your scalp 2 x’s a week at the minimum. Part your hair and apply the castor oil as if you were greasing your scalp.


    -You may apply the castor oil to the length of your hair if you wish to seal.


    - You may mix your castor oil with another oil if it is too thick for you, or if irritation occurs.


    - At the end of the challenge you have 5 days to submit a progress photo May 8. 2010 - May 12. 2010.

    -At the end of the challenge post your starting photo and your ending photo together.



    All challengers will be given a number upon entry. Prize drawing will take place on May 13, 2010 using random.org. You must have a beginning and an ending photo to be eligible for the prize.


    No Photo No Prize! If your number comes up and you have not submitted an ending photo by May. 12 @ midnight you will not be eligible for the prize. Sorry. :jail:


    Important Dates
    Enter the challenge between - Jan. 8, 2010 - Feb 8, 2010
    Submit a Photo between - Feb. 8, 2010 - Feb. 12, 2010

    :peace: Good Luck!
    Happy Hair Growing!

    *By the way, I have no affiliation with the makers of JBCO. I'm conducting this challenge for fun. I will be purchasing the 3 bottles of JBCO with my own money. Thanks!

    I am in (already doing the scalp massage challenge) and already using Castor oil so this will be great to keep me motivated and I am always happy to be in with a chance of winning something, esp as I am in the use up your stash and purchasing powers have been limited .....

    I will be using tropical Isle Lavender Jamaican Black Castor Oil 3x week

    Just to check that this challenge is open to international members? :grin:

    I think I need to join this challenge so that I can finally see what everyone is talking about! One question though, does our starting and ending photos have to be of straightened hair?

    If you straighten your hair normally to do length checks then yes straighten it for your ending photo so we can see the progress you've made. If you would rather not straighten then it's not mandatory you can take your ending pic stretching your hair with your hands. :drunk:

    yay! i want to join. I'll try and get my hands on JBCO by feb 8th but if not, I have regular castor oil from the bss that I can start with. That stuff is so thick and sticky, I may mix it!

    does anyone know of any youtubes I can watch of people oiling their scalp?
    I just want to see people's methods.

    Im in! I really need to get back on using castor oil for those edges. I will be using castor oil form the pharmacy section at walmart. Just plain oil. I like using it slick and seal. I will focus on my edges. I am also using Moe Gro oil. Good Luck Ladies!
