4. 90-Day Growth Challenge
The 90-day growth challenge goes hand-in-hand with the castor oil* challenge. As I stated earlier one of the biggest goals across the board is to experience more hair growth. For naturals, it’s just something about seeing the progress of your fro and for my relaxed ladies, seeing your hair lengthen down your back screams achievement.
The best way to measure your success with this challenge is to do length checks with photo-documenting the back, sides and front of your hair by stretching a cluster of strands to its full extent. As an alternative you can straighten and take a photo with one of the infamous length check shirts at the beginning and end of your challenge.
During your 90-days you want to ensure that you are maximizing your healthy hair maintenance and practicing optimal hair care. This is completed by eliminating sulfate shampoos, applying protein and hot oil treatments as needed, along with weekly deep conditioning*. You can also incorporate some of the previously mentioned challenges like the no heat challenge, protective style and castor oil* challenges.
At the end of the 90-days, check your progress and see how far you’ve come!
5. Style Challenge
Lastly is is the style challenge like the #stylequeencollagechallenge that is going on currently. Go into 2016 wanting to experiment and try new variations.
Are you one who always rocks your fabulous twist out because it’s what works for you? Well it’s the safe route. Sometimes we get too comfortable and are afraid to try new styles in anticipation of it being a total fail.
I dare you to challenge yourself to try at least one new style each month and at the end of the year share your compilation or a collage of the new hairstyles you tackled and mastered in 2016. Which challenge(s) will you be participating in during 2016?
