Spring 2012 Hair Growth Challenge

Hi my lovely afronistas, and anyone in general who has any interest in natural hair!

It has been a while since I last posted, I really missed you.

When I’m not here I’m on Facebook, Gmail, BBM, Twitter, or most importantly work!

I’ve been getting to know Xina Broderick, the Director of Nature’s Parlour recently and I found out about their hair growth challenge at an opportune time. You see, my hair needs a break right now. I’ve abused it, neglected it, ignored it and now I’m going to treat it with a break – box braids. I’m hoping the much needed break will give it time to recuperate and hopefully grow stronger and healthier.

Nature’s Parlour is launching an international hair growth challenge using the greenhouse effect (GHE) hair growth method. This entails having regular, prolonged hot oil treatments. It has been said to me that it has positive results for those who’ve tried it specifically reports of one inch of hair growth each month for those who have regularly used this method.

Xina said: “Black and mixed race people often feel that their potential to have very long hair is limited. With processes like GHE and other hair care routines which involve keeping hair moisturised, Nature’s Parlour would like to encourage people to grow their hair in a fun way and with fellow support from everyone involved.”

I won’t lie to you ladies and gents I am not ready to partake in this challenge simply because I am still personally adjusting to the lifestyle changes my hair has thrown at me but I URGE you to participate if you can, at the very least to receive the free bottle of castor oil and olive oil to anyone that participates in the month of March! The challenge in its entirety is from March to May – so I still have time to pull my socks up and participate when I get a hang of my hair again!

Get in touch with them on Twitter or Facebook and let them know you are participating. And better yet share your progress on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc. I’ve found it nice that people ask me what resources I use to get my information but I can only get my information when others share!

I hope you let me know how you get on.

Till next time,

  1. Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own.
    Do you require any coding knowledge to make your
    own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy
    on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Great work!
