Everyone has until noon on Saturday September 21st to check in since I’m tardy AGAIN. Remember, you are supposed to miss no more than two check-ins during the castor oil challenge so I hope you all make it this time.
Remember, your goal… the reason you joined this castor oil challenge is to support longer hair growth and increased thickness over this 12 week period. Normal hair growth averages 1/2″ per month, sometimes more with the added boost of castor oil. Participants should not expect to have Pocahontas length hair in a mere three months, however we can assure you that by following the Back to the Grind Castor Oil Challenge guidelines and applying castor oil at least 3x weekly, you’ll see many positive changes in your hair thickness, softness and length.
If you’ve already missed one check-in, you’ll have to be very diligent about coming to the site every Friday/Saturday to answer the check in questions. Last week we passed the one-month mark. Please upload a progress photo of the area of your hair that has changed the most … your biggest trouble spot – edges, crown, nape of neck, etc.
Week Five: Check In Questions
Answer these questions in your post below to officially “check in” as we conclude week five of the Back to the Grind castor oil challenge.
- What is your favorite “go-to” style to wear your natural hair for work? For evenings out? For play?
- A natural shared that her father frequently tells her that her hair looks “nappy” and that he doesn’t like the natural look. An older guy in his 70s, he prefers black women to wear their hair straightened. How do your relatives and friends feel about you being natural?
- Are you more or less consistent with your castor oil usage than you were at the beginning of the Challenge? What do you think changed?
That’s it for this week. We’ll be checking the post and noting who “checked in” for the “Back to the Grind” castor oil challenge on our spreadsheet. If you have any questions about the castor oil challenge, feel free to post them here. Someone will get back to you as quickly as possible.
