Castor Oil Challenge Week 2 Check In

Week 1 of the Castor Oil Challenge has now come to the end. Here is my check in for this week:
COC Week 1I’m using Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil for the challenge. The specific formula I’m using has lavender oil added to it for fragrance. Truthfully, I don’t think anything can dress up the smell of black castor oil but A for effort. When this bottle is done, I’ll try either the Extra Dark, Argan oil or the Pimento oil version.


Castor Oil Challenge – Winter 2012

This year I will be participating in the Winter 2012 Castor Oil Challenge. It is a 13 week commitment to use the castor oil of your choice a minimum of 3x per week in hopes of growing longer and fuller hair. Participants are expected to check in once a week to answer some questions about their progress. There will be prizes awarded throughout the challenge as well as a grand prize at the end of the challenge which will be awarded to one lucky person who has been an active participant (minimum 9 check-ins) throughout the challenge.

For those of you who would like to take part, you have until December 7th to register. Details regarding registration are on the website.
