New Growth Aid

I am at it again, being experimental with my hair/hair products. During my last stretch, I used JBCO as a growth aid for my hair. I aimed for 3 scalp massages a week, I also used it in my monthly inversions.

But I want to try something new: it’s the Groganics DHT BLocker System Grotivator Growth Moisturising Lotion. It claims to protect, weak hair, help to increase blood flow, strengthen follicles and promote strong, healthy hair. It should be used by people with advanced hair loss and severly thinning hair only. Continue reading

Inversion Method – February

I am doing my first inversion method for this year, I started yesterday. I am finding it hard to get 7 consecutive days where I know for sure that I will have time to do this process, hence I will not be doing it as often as I would like – but once in 2 months is better than nothing right?

I am using an oil mix that includes almost all the oils I have in my stash. My ‘base’oils were castor oil and coconut oil to which I added 10 drops of each of these oils: rosemary, lavender, peppermint, cedarwood and thyme essential oils. I have mentioned previously that I am not one of those people who get the 1 inch of growth with using the inversion method, but I do notice a growth spurt definitely. It’s a way for me to keep up with my scalp massages which have been proven to be good for your hair.

So I will be inverting my head everyday until Wednesday next week.

Wish me luck!

Protective Style | Wig

Yay! I am into my first protective style of this stretch, even though I am a week late according to my regimen for this year, better late than never, right?

I decided to go with a wig, this is the 3rd time I have a wig on my hair journey, the last one I kept for 3 weeks because I missed my hair terribly as I had no access to it in the 3 weeks, absolutely 0! I couldn’t even moisturise and seal…long story. Continue reading

Mini challenge: Inversion Method

I have only had my box braids for over a week and I am already bored *yawn* – I miss my hair now and I am slowly counting down to 4 weeks till I take them down.

In the meantime I have decided to set little challenges myself to keep myself motivated. This week I am starting with the inversion challenge which I am sure that everyone on their hair journey has heard about. I have done it a couple of times before and over those times I didn’t get the 1 inch (2.54 cm) growth promised. I think for me it’s more of getting in my regular scalp massages which I don’t do as often as I should.

I am going to be doing the inversion method for the next 7 days, till Sunday. I am using an oil mix that includes almost all the oils I have in my stash. My ‘base’oils were castor oil and coconut oil to which I added 10 drops of each of these oils: rosemary, lavender, peppermint, cedarwood and thyme essential oils.

Have any of you guys Β ever gotten a big growth spurt with the inversion method?

Update 09 December 2014

I managed to do the inversion for 5 out of the 7 days and I did get extra growth, but like I said I did not measure it so I don’t know much growth I got exactly. I plan to put this method on my monthly to do list.
