  1. So does that mean I have to have my own hair during this challenge and how do I measure if I'm braided.

    1. Post a picture of your hair before you installed your braids, during the challenging post pictures of your hairline while using castor oil and post a picture of your hair on May 31st to see how much your hair has grown. Simple!

  3. I would love to join but im afraid I will only be able to use the castor oil selectively- hot oil treatments/pre-pooing because I have fine hair so oil just sits on my hair and my scalp naturally oils itself so basing it causes build up. Can I do a modified challenge?

  4. Yaaay I love a challenge. I'm sooo going to participate :-)

  5. I am from Southafrica but dont live there anymore. Hope that counts
