So technically, it has been 2 months and 10 days but I wanted to get this update in before I do my final update early May. For the past month I have used Castor Oil at least 3 – 4 times a week, I continue to add it to my deep conditioner etc. Here are my comparison pictures. Please bear in mind that I started taking the GNC Ultra Hair Nourish pill at the beginning of month 2 so that has also affected my growth.
In my April photos, I had just taken down my cornrows and my hair still looked like it did when I blew it out slightly to install the cornrows – all stretched out.
I took down my cornrows just shy of the 2 week mark as my head was constantly itching 😦 As I type, I have since washed and treated my hair yet it is STILL itching. I have scratched my scalp sore 😥 What do you use for an itchy scalp? I have a medicated ‘grease’ I used some years ago when I had this issue that I will have to go find somewhere at the back of my cupboard! I don’t know if its a reaction to the kanekolon hair I used to do the cornrows or what but I have to get this itching under control to stick with my Protective Style Challenge! Grrrr.
But overall, my hair is coming along nicely, don’t you think? 🙂
