SULFUR CHALLENGE 2012

Hey Ladies!! :grin:

This is a continuation of the Sulfur 2011 Challenge:

Anyone else interested in seeing what kind of growth they can achieve with regular sulfur application?

I know there are many members that have past experience with sulfur as a growth aid. This would be a good place to gather and share ideas, success stories, as well as some wonderful recipes.​

Guidelines:

This challenge will run from January 1st, 2012 until December 31st, 2012.​

Progress pictures are encouraged. Visual evidence can be tremendously inspiring. I suggest we do progress updates twice for the year, June 30th, 2012 and Dec 31st, 2012. However there's no pressure to do so.

Please thank this post, and fill out the info listed below, and I will add you to the list of challengers.

My scalp is very sensitive to topical sulfur treatments but I do take sulfur internally. Is that enough to participate in the challenge?

I'm kind of nervous about joining. I have sublimed sulfur powder that I used earlier this year, but I could never find a method of application that would keep my jewelry from turning colors. And since I very very rarely take my jewelry off I was having to clean them really often.

Any suggestions??

^^Do you mean that your jewelry turns colors because your sulfur oil mix runs down your neck? If so, mix it into a whipped butter, or into a pomade.

No, like my ring turns colors when I go to wash my hair, I guess from having my fingers in my head. I tried mixing the sulfur in a shea butter mix to use on my scalp and took my jewelry off when applying it and washing it, but idk, it still turned colors. I'm thinking it's from always having my hands in my head which is a problem all in its own
