2. You are only to use 3 products on your hair excluding conditioner
3. no gels (with the exception of aloe vera gel)
4.drink at least 48 oz of water daily
5.take your vitamins daily
6.try not to mess with your hair alot
7.spritz with water to retain moisture

I know not that exciting but i really needed a challenge

hmmmm...no gel...

that's a tough one, but I love a good challenge! ::thinking::

10-01-2006, 04:17 PM
sounds like my kinda challenge. i need to drink more water and i'm always forgetting my vitamins. plus, my hair is still pretty short and it's tough to figure out what to do with it, so nothing sounds good to me :P i'm in~

10-01-2006, 05:01 PM
two little questions:

How long for?

Which vitamins should I take?

10-01-2006, 05:35 PM
i'll do that! - but will i need to put up pictures? (no digital camera, sadly) :(

10-01-2006, 05:41 PM
hmmmm...no gel...

that's a tough one, but I love a good challenge! ::thinking::

I use gel, the Fantasia IC kind. I can look into buying aloe vera gel. I can totally do this challenge. I'll start today. :D

10-01-2006, 05:49 PM
wow so that means no curl activator gel... I don't know I guess I can get some aloe vera gel.. Ok, Count me in.

10-01-2006, 06:05 PM

Are there certain types of styles we can wear? I'm addicted to twist-outs..

I'm also going to do nightly scalp massages :wub:

10-01-2006, 11:21 PM
wow so that means no curl activator gel... I don't know I guess I can get some aloe vera gel.. Ok, Count me in.

I just remembered I very bad about my vitamins too... Hopefully this wiill help me remember. I cant wait to see my results on Halloween!!!

10-01-2006, 11:27 PM
wow, this is perfect 'cause I always forget to take my vitamins, and I never remember to drink enough water. This sounds like what I should be doing anyways... so count me in. :D

10-02-2006, 11:51 AM
i'm in but one question how long is this challenge going on for?

10-02-2006, 02:19 PM
Count me in too. I definitely need the water and vitamins. Does mousse considered a gel? Cause if it is, that's going to hurt. And for how long?

10-02-2006, 02:28 PM
I'm in...I need to drink more water and take vitamins anyway...

10-02-2006, 02:30 PM
Can this challenge be done if my hair is in braids? I know it might be a silly question but i'm new at this challenge stuff!

10-02-2006, 02:34 PM
Hmm...I think I want to do this :)

10-02-2006, 02:48 PM
This sounds good to me. It's basically what I am doing now minus drinking my water. I'm getting better with it though. Um, how long are we doing this and what vitamins are you all taking?

10-02-2006, 03:13 PM
I already do that :lol:

10-02-2006, 04:08 PM
Hmmmm. Ok! Count me in becoz Im always forgetting to take my vitamins and drink alot of water. Hope I do alrite.

10-02-2006, 05:05 PM
i've been taking hair, nails, skin vitamins... comparable to biotin. is that allright for this? drinking that water is the hardest thing to do!!

10-02-2006, 05:43 PM
you all can try crystal light packets they help you take in the water and yes i meant like curl activator gels, etc. any vitamins will do any. mouses are okay they count as a product

good luck

10-02-2006, 07:06 PM
Count me in.

10-03-2006, 02:12 PM
it's official, i'm starting the challenge. I'll also be creating a fokti soon to document the evolution

10-03-2006, 02:23 PM
Im in too. My hair's braided....so I won't be a victim of "Hand-In-Fro"! Drinking water and taking viatamins daily is a real challenge for me...

This ought to be fun!

10-03-2006, 10:57 PM
I'm in...I'm doing most of this anyway, so I might as well jump on the challege.


10-06-2006, 07:57 PM
The aloe vera gel is really making my hair soft to the touch and it feels mousturized. WHy havent I used this sooner???? lol..

10-06-2006, 08:11 PM
Sounds like a good challenge.....and I need a growth challenge. Just wondering about the gel, I use Fantasia. Is it something about gels outside of aloe vera that hinders growth?

10-06-2006, 09:11 PM
i'm in.

drinking water has become easy for me...so that's a go
i need to purchase multivitamins, though
and i've been exercising recently...so, i've gotta keep that up

the only product i'll be using is blended beauty happy nappy styles/kick for curls [that i mixed together, so it's one] - i'll use this twice daily - in the morning and at night [especially because winter/colder months are coming]

shampoo/deep condition/detangle once a week

no condition washing for me.

trying my best to stop fiddling so much with it or taking my stress/anxiety out on my hair.

i'll probably twist it every once in a while to help myself out a little bit.

sorry it took so long for me to repost but for some reason i couldn't find my thread and emails weren't coming to me :blush: , as for your question about the aloe vera gel vs. fantasia peronally to me (and other nappturals)aloe vera gel is a better moisturizing gel than the fantasia plus it gives you a chance to get to know your hair w/o gels and activators plus alot of people said gel is drying and a key to growth is moisture.Yall can shampoo if u like cause i know everyone doesn't co-wash :D anyways have fun and good luck :D

simply natural

12-28-2006, 12:30 PM
I think this is an excellent challenge. Count me in. Oh, is there anybody that use the Hair, Skin and Nail supplement from Walmart?

12-28-2006, 01:09 PM
I'm in! I'll be starting this challenge on New Years.

12-28-2006, 01:53 PM
;) I'm in too! I already do all of those things except the water and vitamins. I currently have a 3" afro. How long is the challenge again?

12-28-2006, 02:36 PM
YES!! I am in too. I definitely need to drink more water and take my vitamins on a daily basis. I like this challenge.

12-28-2006, 03:56 PM
let's make the challenge 2 months (maybe 3)so we can see much growth we have ,you can go longer if you'd like :D
