Guess who is back? Yay Me! Did you miss me? I am guessing you now know my reason for being away. It feels good to be back and I am bringing you something exciting to help you on your natural hair journey.
Hair Challenges!!!!!!! We saw Irene's Journey on the Coconut Oil Challenge and decided that it would be a great idea to involve YOU!!!!!
The idea of the challenge is to 'challenge' (Trust me, I tried to find a synonym but it just didn't werk) us to treat our hair better to achieve our hair goals. It's going to be really as simple as it can be. We would have a set of rules to follow for a certain time frame and as many as are interested will indicate their interest to follow us on this journey and tag African Naturalistas to track your progress weekly on any of our social media platforms and use the #ANChallenge and at the end of the challenge you send an email to us with your before and after pictures and we will do final recap and on to the next one.
We would be running more challenges as time goes on but first of all, Let's save our hair lines!!!
I personally think this is a major challenge. A lot of people complain about their edges and on this blog we have dealt severally with tips to help regrow your edges. The tips we have put out overtime will be our guiding rules for this challenge.
Duration: 2 Months
Products needed: Castor Oil & Coconut Oil
- No Extensions - We need to let the hair breathe from all the pulling and tugging.
- No tight satin bonnet or scarfs around the edges - Use either your satin pillow case or wear the bonnet abit lower towards your forehead.
- Ease on caps, turbans, hats that rub harshly on your edges.
- Very minimal or no manipulation. (I know that's pushing it a bit far) Lol
- Wash up any make-up on your edges.
- Apply the mixture of Coconut oil & Castor oil or either of them every night.
- Moisturize Daily.
Reward after the Challenge; African Naturalistas Coconut Oil and Jojoba Oil goes to the winner of the challenge, which will be determined by the AN Team.
If you are interested just indicate in the comment section, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your before picture so we can do a weekly update. You can also drop your images using #ANChallenge on any of our social media platforms so other people in the community can see your progress; On twitter here, On the facebook discussion forum here and finally on Instagram here and at the end we do a final recap for those of us that will get to the end!
Who else is excited?
