Welcome to our

Hair Growth Challenge!

If you are having issues retaining length, the issue is not always the product. It might be:

  • How you are using your products
  • Your daily moisture levels
  • Quality of your protective style

You are going to learn to maintain constant moisture in your hair and to properly manipulate your hair.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Growth Challenge?
This growth challenge is aimed at maximizing the results of your protective style. The goal is to consistently refresh and moisturize your hair without overwhelming your schedule. This means we are focusing on easy ways to manipulate and moisturize 4c hair.
How Much Does it Cost to Participate?

Not a single cent. The information I’ve gathered over 11 years is free for my fellow type 4 naturals to access and use to grow their hair. 

What Products do I need to participate?

You will need:

  • Satin scarf and bonnet
  • Water based moisturizer
  • Sealant
  • Cleansing Shampoo
  • Moisturizing Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Deep Conditioner
  • Slippage Product
  • Oils
  • Hair Towel

You can find links to the products I use here. 

Will I need Additional Help?

If you are nervous about trimming your hair yourself (its easy) then see a professional stylist to have it done for you. Otherwise you should be fine.

Instructions

  1. Moisturize

    • The key to this challenge is having the right products. Take your favorite moisturizer and oil, mix together in a spray bottle and dilute with water. Keep this on hand!
  2. Protect

    • Pick a protective style that tucks away your ends. I like to do twists pulled back into a bun.
  3. Replenish

    • This is the easy part! To keep your hair moist in the heat, spray the solution you made onto your strands *at least* 3x a week. Use a soft brush to smooth down your hair. At night you can just spray with water and wear your satin scarf.
My Hair is This long, What do I do?
Short Hair?

This is especially for you! Short hair is the easiest to grow because it tangles less frequently than longer hair. I suggest wearing wash and gos, scarves, and learning your hair at this stage. Find more short protective style inspiration here.

Medium Length Hair?

If you have medium length natural hair, you should now be experiencing a slight change in the way your hair behaves, this will continue as your hair gets longer and weighs down your curl pattern. Twits outs and curly wigs are a great protective style for your length. 

Shoulder Length and Below?

If you are lazy like me, you will find sollace in the fact that this is as easy as it gets. But you will have issues with tangling. Try a product with a lot of slip to detangle.  Chunky braids and scarf styles are the way to go. Just refresh your moisture as the challenge directs!
