JBCO Challenge Recap

Where do I start? 

The challenge was from March 18 - June 18th that was hosted on It was a great challenge to participate in and I enjoyed it. I decided to use the oil as a prepoo, to oil my scalp as well as adding some to my deep conditioners. I can admit there were some days that I would forget to apply this oil but when I remember trust me it was being done. I did prepoo with the oil for the entire challenge except in June, started to get lazy with it. But prepooing with the oil and applying it to my scalp is what I mainly did. When I would pre poo I would heat up the oil and apply it to my scalp only leaving it in for 15 to 30 minutes only. As for using the oil on my scalp I did apply it starting from three times a week to everyday. I can admit there were times I would forget but it wasn't often. As for adding it to my deep conditioners that was only done once I didn't bother doing that.

My results I can't really complain about it. To me my before and after look exactly the same. For some reason my before picture makes my hair look as if it were thicker but that wasn't the case. I had just took off my weave and was dealing with thin hair which is the reason why I decided to join the challenge, beside the growth. I feel that my hair now is more thicker then before especially towards my roots. I feel that the oil helped my hair grow because of how my roots were acting. I say that because I felt my roots were more curlier then my hair and they also were very thick. I describe it as when someone is dealing with "new growth" hopefully that makes sense, I have a post on it. I also feel that my hair wasn't able to retain the length is could had received because I was dealing with a lot of breakage, which I also wrote about. But anyway I enjoyed the challenge and wouldn't mind going on another. I might even do my own personal one for the summer eh who knows.



  1. I'm in for a Castor oil challenge! Maybe that will remind me to use it!

    1. You should try a personal one that last till the end of the summer. Just be consistent and you would get great results

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…
