    Just used my castor oil on my scalp for the second time this week. Since it's only wednesday I may try to get one more in before the week is over.

    HHJ ladies! Hope everyone is doing well.

    I just bc'ed and the starting length is in my avi. I will post a more recent pic this weekend, b/c I swear this twa is growing before my eyes!! :lachen: I've read enough reviews about JBCO so I'll be ordering mine from Sam's 24/7 and using it to seal in moisture and massage my scalp. I'll alternate on the scalp between this and mega-tek. Grow baby grow, here we go! :yep: :boxing::boxing:

    Man I'm upset, I ordered two 8 oz bottles of JBCO from Sams247 and only received one in the mail. I sent them an email......they better respond real soon with some type of explanation I can accept!!

    Oh yeah so I broke open the bottle of JBCO I did receive and applied to my roots. Will be doing that every other day.

    I am DC'ing right now.... I've added my JBCO to the mix. I guess this can count for 3 uses in a week???

    So far so good. I will say that I have been experiencing some scalp itching (I think I read that some in the first edition experienced this as well) any ladies feeling this?

    Also has anyone seen any change in the amount of shedding they have since incorporating JBCO???

    I would like to join! My hairline was once lost but now it has been found -- thanks to JBCO. It's been two months and I've nearly finished an 8 oz bottle. Just waiting on the order I placed from Sam247.com to arrive. I use it:

    -- on my edges 2X day
    -- in my DC's and pre poo's 2-3X/week
    -- to seal sometimes

    Starting picture is my avatar.

    Quick question: Does parting my hair and applying it with DC's and pre poo's count? Or should I just watch from the sidelines?

    I really need to figure some things out in order to do my best in this challenge...

    I am BSL 4B natural and I wear my hair flat ironed 90% of the time. I can't control all of this hair!!!!! That's the main reason why I only wash every other week. (not happy with that, but spending ALL day on sundays doing my hair is not ideal)

    Any other 4B naturals have any suggestions????

    Just appy it to your scalp 2x a week (lightly) so int [email protected] it shouldn't give you that much build up.

    I already entered but here is my starting picture:

    [​IMG]

    In the above picture, my hair is freshly combed and loaded with butter and oil. Its about 2 1/4 inches long. I am hoping to have 3 1/2 inches of hair by the end of this challenge.

    I will be using castor oil from oilsbynature.com I will be using it at least 3 times a week. I will be using it straight (not cutting it with other oils).

    Good luck to everyone.
