Stunted Hair Growth?/No HEAT Challenge

Posted by HenJa' on March 13, 2013 at 12:00 AM

We all go through periods each year where our hair just doesn't seem to be growing; Because I know I do. What I did for a year was wore sew-ins (I took them out and got them redone every month and a half). That helped with the growth of my hair and gave me a chance to give my hair a break from the heat. But, now a days, my hair doesn't seem to like being braided up for a sew-in because my scalp itchs like CRAZY. So, for the month of MARCH I personally decided to challenge myself to a NO HEAT CHALLENGE.


I challenge everyone to pick a month in the fall/winter and a month in the spring/summer to do the no heat challenge to see how your hair changes and grows.

For the entire month of March I will only air dry my hair. As stated in a blog a while back, I was converting from regular relaxers to texturizers. I started in July 2011, and I have about 2 inches of relaxed hair at the ends left. Texturizers have provided me with "relaxed" hair BUT also with a curl. So flat twists make for a great style for me now. Where as before I had to cornrow my hair for waves.

The air drying style consists of flat twist and nothing else. I do about 5 or 6 flat twist, unravel in the AM and I'm on my way. At night I retwist and have no problems maintaing the curl/wave pattern for a week at a time. 

The other challenge I am participating in is oiling my scalp NIGHTLY. I wouldn't dare do that to my hair when wearing my wrap because I like for my hair to flow and move lol


 

Tips on why your growth may be stunted:

Scarf too tight at night

Too much heat

Braids or Ponytails too tight

Not moisturized enough

Ends getting caught up on cotton shirts

Hair not being trimmed properly

Split ends / Damaged hair


Prodcuts Used On Flat Twist:

MoroccanOil Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

Bio-Silk Leave-In Conditioner

MoroccanOil Treatment

MoriccanOil Finish
