Of course everyone noticed there were no new posts to “check in” for two weeks. We had some tech problems that I was unable to get to right away, then when I did it was a disaster. But its all fixed now and we’re back on track.
The bonus for YOU is that everyone registered for the challenge will get credit for those weeks! It’s only fair that you not be penalized. So you have two up and then we’ll compare check-ins for each of the subsequent weeks.
Next week is the final length check! You’ll be taking pictures of your “after” hair length. Ideally, if you could get someone to help you make a two-shot, one showing your before right next to your new after, it would be perfect. That way people can easily see and compare your 12 week length and thickness increases.
Remember to resize your image before uploading! Use http://www.picresize.com/ to do it. You can rotate, crop and resize images right from your web browser, no software and no downloads (except for the image you create) required. Then upload your image to the site on the 15th of November.
Week 11 – Check In Questions
- There has been a lot of talk about the natural hair movement being a fad for some women, as many “tried” being natural but are running back to relaxers. Do you think wearing hair natural is a fad or a cultural shift and acceptance of ourselves as we truly are?
- Have you ever experienced a moment of weakness and considered going back to the Creamy Crack yourself?
- How about your products… do you think it makes a difference to your hair if the products you use are sulfate and paraben free? Does your hair know the difference?
That’s it for this week! Next week we’ll get your summary comments on the Castor Oil Challenge and take a look at your progress pics! If you have any questions about the challenge, post them here and your questions will be answered as quickly as possible.
