    What type of Castor Oil will you be using:
    I will be using JBCO. When I run out, I will use plain drugstore Castor Oil.

    Tell us a bit about your hair:
    I am relaxed and my goal is to do at least a 1 year transition. I'm currently in kinky twists and plan on protective styling throughout 2012.

    How will you be using your Castor Oil:
    I will be massaging the Castor Oil into my scalp at least 3 times per week.

    I've actually started sealing with castor oil last week and continue to do so as my hair is loving it!

    So I'll join and see if it makes any difference.

    My mother and I were talking about this the other day. I will definitely be ordering some JBCO soon if I don't find it in stores somewhere. My mother used regular castor oil and received great growth so I'm down. When I post in the HYH reveal I'll come back here with starting info and pic.

    Will update with my starting photo...Evallusion Is it ok if it's just a picture of my edges/Nape? Those are really the areas that I'm going to focus on religiously!


    What type of Castor Oil will you be using: I will use mostly Regular Castor Oil. But I do intend to buy one bottle of JBCO as well.
    Tell us a bit about your hair: Thinning edges due to a relaxer/micros. I've been seeing improvement since i've began to give these areas extra TLC
    How will you be using your Castor Oil: I'm going to oil my edges and nape every night with the Castor Oil and massage it in.

    I also plan to make an ayurvedic oil out of a bottle of regular castor oil. I will more thank likely infuse it with the methi powder that I have, which is helpful for thinning hair.

    Okay, both challenges should go hand in hand. Did you want in?

    That pic should be just fine. Personally, I'm waiting until it's closer to the start date to post my beginning pic.

    Yup! That's just fine.

    I used to do nightly scalp massages and seal with it.

    I'm in your HYH challenge myself and its the first time I'm going to make it all the way through, lol. Go ME!

    Shockingly enough, those ingredients look really good. I would have never expected that from Ultra Sheen.


    THANKS EVERYONE ELSE FOR JOINING!
    LETS KEEP IT GOING!

    Evallusion that is exactly what I thought when I looked at the ingredient list. Its practically everything I would have put into an oil myself, all the good natural oils. Wal-Mart has it for around $4.00 a bottle.

    I think a lot of companies are stepping their game up with this whole natural healthy hair movement.

    Awesome Challenge - I'm in!!!

    What type of Castor Oil will you be using: JBCO/Regular Castor Oil

    Tell us a bit about your hair: I'm relaxed, 3C and I'm about 2 to 3 inches from waist length. I believe with this challenge it will help me get there quicker.

    How will you be using your Castor Oil: I will apply only to my scalp at least 2 to 3 times a week. I plan to heat it before applying it, I find if it's heated it goes on better because it's so thick.

    ~ I will add photos later, I just got a relaxer and I used small barrell rollers ~

    Okay i'm back
    What type of Castor Oil will you be using: Just cold pressed i get from drugstore or health food store

    Tell us a bit about your hair: i'm a 4b coarse, thick natural. Thick oil like castor is the only one that keeps moisture on for me.

    ***will post a starting pic sometime next month

    I am in, I have been thinking about using castor oil.

    I am just going to use regular castor oil.
    I am not sure what my hair type is (and it is different all over my head lol) but its 4 3/4 inches long stretched.
    I plan to seal with it, I hope this helps grow out my twa faster

    I will attach another pic closer to the start date, I might grow 3 inches this month :lol: **crosses fingers*

    What type of Castor Oil will you be using: Saravun's Scalp Oil (shea and castor oil mix), regla ol' dollar store CO and if I can get my grubby little hands on it, Extra Dark JBCO. :lick:

    Tell us a bit about your hair: Natural‚ with a maddening combination of 3c/4a/4b kinks‚ coils and frizz. :lol: A little past CBL when stretched, on my way to APL. :grin:

    How will you be using your Castor Oil: On my scalp 4-5 days a week, might occasionally seal with it too.

    Attached a pic of my hair-- just took it today for the challenge. :happydance:
