I just joined Tonkabelle of Wura's Secret Hair's "The New Beginnings Hair Growth Challenge". I like love challenges because they push one to do more, encourage consistency, accountability and eventually lead to great results (in thickness, length and health). Some times you also get to win prizes. *winks*. In this case, Tonkabelle has a prize for Lagos residents.

Below are the rules of the challenge. You can also check the rules and details here

Start the challenge with a trim, the amount of hair you choose to trim off depends on you. After that keep trimming at the barest minimum, avoid it if possible if you must trim then dusting of the hair is preferable. Dusting is where such a small amount of hair is trimmed that it falls through the air like dust. (I will be sure to do a future post on dusting and trimming) (If you have recently had a trim done no need to trim again for the challenge)

Wash and condition your hair every one or two weeks, you need to be consistent.

Do a pre-shampoo or hot oil treatment before washing and conditioning your hair (optional)

Moisturise and seal your hair daily. (or every other day if this suits you better)

Oil your scalp every day with a growth aid of your choice such as Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil and so on .

Keep your hair in buns, french twists, wigs and other protective styles to retain length at least 5 times a week. (You can do longer term protective styles such as weaves, braids. Just be sure to take the style down latest after three weeks - a month to wash/condition. Moisturise/seal and oil the scalp as often as you can - if your hair is in a weave try to go under the tracks).

Try as much as possible to air dry your hair after shampooing and conditioning it. Do not use any form of direct heat to style your hair in the form of flat irons. If you must blow dry your hair make sure you use the lowest heat setting or better still the cool setting. Roller setting is permitted as it is a form of indirect heat.

If you are relaxed or texlaxed, stretch your relaxers to at least eight weeks.

I believe six months is plenty of time to achieve a substantial amount of hair growth.

Start Date:  14th March 2016 (However I am giving everyone a grace period of two weeks to participate by entering their comments below)

End Date:  14th September 2016

I will be following most of rules strictly, but will tweak some to suit my schedule. I joined NHCG's 2016 6 inches of Growth Challenge at the beginning of the year. This 6 months growth challenge should help keep me on track and give me great results for the year long challenge.

I can't do a proper length check for now till touch-up day. I'm not yet sure when that will be. I will make the do with the pictures taken on my last wash day. I'm hoping to achieve length but especially thickness with this challenge.

My Starting Picture
Have you joined this challenge? Are you currently on any other ones? If not, I'll encourage you to join this one.

Happy Growing !!!
