- Protective Hair Styling Challenge (naturallyblack.wordpress.com)
I’ve started using JBCO (Jamaican blk castor oil) and a spray bottle filled with water to mist my hair daily, and the length retention has been AMAZING!! JBCO has some amazing properties as far as hair growth goes..
JBCO stimulates the hair follicles, and is an anti fungal oil that does WONDERS for the health of your scalp, which is essential for hair growth! I’ll get into all of the science behind it in another post. I’m a former product junkie, but these days.. All I need is my JBCO, and a spray bottle full of water! My regime is SIMPLE! From March to October I have acquired 7 inches of growth on my 4b type hair. I only use shampoo every MONTH, I co-wash every 2 weeks.. I use my JBCO to massage into my scalp (do this on lightly damp hair) take a small smidget of JBCO and apply to my ends.. Then I lightly mist each section, twist it up and bantu knot it! I’ve rocked protective styles for all 8 months! I have a collection of wigs, you know to SPICE it up since I’m only using protective styling.. Don’t get it twisted fellas we have hair, but we deal with this evil thing called SHRINKAGE!! #IHateThatShit #ButMyHairHealthyTho.. Ladies and Gents remember to mist the hair daily.. The key to growing natural hair especially those of use with 4 type hair is MOISTURE and little to manipulation to your beautiful tresses!! That is all for this blog post, let me get back to work! HAPPY GROWING LOVELIES!!
I would first like to say I thank GOD that my hair grows extremely fast, but when you try to KEEP a protective style in your head that you actually PAID for, it becomes a bit frustrating. Which is why I generally do my own p.s. (Naturalista on a budget). Luckily I only paid $55 for these box braids and not $200 from my local African hair braiding shop! LOL! Needless to say these have only been in for 3 weeks and I had to R.I.P. them! Oh, and I tried that “The Mane Choice” product line! My review on it, in my next post!!! Goodnight my loves!!
