Castor Oil Challenge

As much as I love kinky twists extensions and similar extension styles, I hate what they can do do edges/hairlines. I just took out a set of twists after having them in for about 2.5months. My edges are still in tack but just look thinner than usual so I've decided to challenge myself to a Castor Oil Challenge as it supports hair growth and thickness in hair, eyelashes, and eyebrows. I would love for you to join me in it.

What: I'm using the HomeHealth brand Castor Oil but you can use whatever brand you want (Palma Christi or even any of the Jamaican Black Castor Oil brands)
When: I'll be applying to my edges and scalp once in the morning and once at night on dry hair (using it on wet hair will cause your pores to clog because pores open when they are wet)
How: I'll be mixing it with some EVOO or other essential oil just to help with the smell.
How Long: This challenge will go from Sunday January 9, 2011 to Sunday March 13, 2011. That gives a full 2 months

I'll be posting pics tomorrow of my hair so I'll have a comparison and I encourage you to do the same. If you are interested in this challenge please leave your twitter name in the comment section and I'll be sure to mention (@) you on twitter using the hashtag: #CastorOilChallenge

I don't have a Twitter but I think I'd be interested in this.

I've always had hairline issues and would like to thicken it up.

That is a good idea! I have some jamaican black castor oil and I have started applying it every night. I hope my edges grow as well. Nice blog
