Hi again to all deep conditioning challengers,

This is just a continuation of the deep conditioning challenge that ran for all of 2008. Now by popular demand it's back for next year beginning January 1st - December 31st, 2009.

This challenge was started because we sometimes get a little lazy and don't want to do all that's necessary for our hair to grow faster, so the challenge helps us to encourage each other to remain consistent and persistent.

I know that I myself have experienced a huge success with my hair progress since starting deep condtioning consistently, it is thicker and longer:yep:. I am relaxed so co-washing everyday doesn't work too well for me but DC-ing 2 to 3 times a week is the truth. By the way, this challenge is for all natural, texlaxed, texturized and relaxed heads.

Here is what you will need for this challenge:

1. Simplicity is still key in this challenge.
2. Deep conditioning is required a minimum of twice per week, be it on wet or dry hair. If you are wearing braids or weaves, once per week would suffice. I am using my WEN and Hair One cleansing conditioners while in braids because I like that I can leave them in for extended conditioning.
3. Shampooing more than once a week is not required.
4. You may deep condition with heat (steam/conditioning heat caps or hot towels and plastic cap - Samanthajones Technique) for at least 30 minutes to an hour using the deep conditioner of your choice.
5. And/Or you may deep condition without heat wearing a plastic cap from a couple of hours to overnight if you dare - and wash out the following morning.
6. Please check in at least once a week to update the team on how it's going for you. Also, it would be helpful if we know what you are using as your deep conditioners of choice. This helps to inform the newbies in that we'll know if they are using the correct conditioners for their hair in an effort to avoid protein/moisture overload.
7. Let us know what kind of results you are getting from a conditioner as well, whether you liked it or not and why.
8. Please post your starting progress pic at the beginning of the challenge and the last one will be required by December 27th-31st, 2009 when the challenge will end.

OK I am in. Starting/current pics in siggy. I DC every time I wash anyway so I might as well join. I have been using a mix of ORS/olive oil or LeKair cholesterol/olive oil with a plastic cap and 30 minutes of heat. I just got some Phyto deep conditioner so I'll be putting that in rotation as well over the next few months. I measure after my relaxers which typically happen around the 15th of the month. So my siggy will be updated once a month.

I will join this challenge. I use alter ego garlic or cholestrol overnight. I also just received Mega tek so I will find out how to use that as a DCer.

This is great! I already dc about 1-2x a week (wednesdays and/or sundays) and so far my hair has been loving it! This challenge will help me to stay on track. I dc with a cheap cholesterol treatment and add an egg if i want some protein. Other than that i co-wash in between deep conditioning days and bun or wear wigs daily.
