I am starting off my natural journey with a BANG! If you follow me on Instagram (which you should be!) you will know that I big chopped on my birthday (29 November) – I am full natural now 🙂 – more about that in another post.
Joie from Long Nigerian Hair has teamed up with myself and Yemi from Let’s Grow Our Hair to host a challenge themed #One_Inch_December. *cues Rands and Nairas by Emmy Gee ft AB Crazy & DJ Dimples*
Here is her write up from her blog about this challenge.
AIM: #One_Inch_December hair challenge aims to speed up growth on hair journey without compromising on the health of our hair.
TIMELINE: December 1st to 31st
HOW-TO: Speed up hair growth via either the inversion method, scalp massages or any other healthy & safe method that can speed up your hair growth.
NB: Take a picture of the length of your hair at the beginning of this challenge. This will help to measure your results by day 21.
Here is how I plan to tackle this challenge:
- I will do the inversion method for 7 days, I have done it before and although I don’t get 1 inch of growth over the 7 days, I still think it does my hair some good.
- Scalp massages using my oil mix 3 times a week (on the other weeks where I am not doing the inversion challenge)
- Using steam on my hair at least once a week (steam/heat is known to stimulate the scalp)
Check out the blog every week for updates. You can join the challenge over at Long Nigerian Hair.
