JBCO Challenge

My Poor Editing Skills Lol, I'm Trying

Jamaican Black Castor Oil is probably one of many best known and used oils. I had wonder about this oil for quite some time now and decided to look into the benefits that I can receive other then what I have already heard about. I have came across this article on BeautifulNaps talking about the benefits of the oil. Here are the benefits that come with the use of this oil:

• Prevents dry scalp
• Promotes hair growth
• Prevents breakage
• Helps with alopecia
• Increases blood circulation in scalp
• Strengthens hair follicle
• Prevents dandruff and itchy scalp
• Thickens hair

I had heard so people talk about how their hair has grown from this oil and not only that but thicken the hair (Something I definitely need). So I decided to put myself to the challenge and use this oil for 3 months. At first I was looking for a group that was doing the challenge as well but they were all closed off or done. Until I seen a challenge on Hairlista called Round 2 Castor Oil Challenge. Now I can do it with a group of ladies. I'm pretty excited to start this challenge (Starts Today March 18) Ends June 18. My Plans with the oil are to use them as:

  • Hot oil treatment
  • Apply to scalp every other day
  • Possibly (but not guaranteed) in my deep conditioner

Here is my starting picture:


  1. I hope you get the results you are looking for! Definitely try adding some to your DC..It is BOMB!

    1. Thanks I'm hoping for thicker hair or even full MBL if possible

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length. 

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

Wash Day

[1] Detangled hair & shampooed in four sections with ORS Aloe Shampoo. I feel that this shampooed is a great shampoo especially to remove build up.
[2] Deep condition with Creme of Nature Moisture Milk Masque. I recently purchased this deep conditioner and wanted to see how well it worked on freshly washed hair. I applied it to my four sections starting from tip working my way up to the root. I put on two plastic caps and left it on for 40 minutes while I did some house cleaning. Rinsing the product out it was nothing impressing. My hair looked really shiny and moisturized, hair detangled rather easily but I detangled prior. First impression it did not wow me.
[3] Leave in of choice was Chi Keratin mist because my hair has been shedding like crazy and Creme of Nature 7-in-1
[4] I also recently purchased Creme of Nature Foaming Lotion. I never used a foaming lotion my initial reason of purchasing this was to do a flexi rod set but I decided to skip that and just braid my hair. I did t…
