A new challenge--totally unrelated to Korea!

So, very recently, I was introduced to a YouTube poster named Kimmaytube. I was advised to check out her hair practices and results. I am FLOORED. Not only has she shown the product of her hard work, she's totally backed up (or reneged on) her practices with research and proof! I must say, I am a sucker for practicality, logic, and research. I am the type of person who will argue a point against you--not because I care that much--but because what you are saying is unfounded and/or not "fool" proof.

So, in saying that, I've decided to follow in many of Kimmaytube's practices, in hopes that my hair responds just as favorably as hers. I have been natural (did the big chop) since August 2008. While my hair has grown tremendously from about 1/2 of an inch in 3 years, I am convinced that it can do more! I know how I've treated my hair (not too bad, but not excellent) and my splitting ends seem to be the most problem (as for many people), and the reason for not retaining length.

Although natural for 3 years, I have just recently gained an interest in natural "hair care." Anyway, I'm saying all of this to say; I am starting a hair challenge!!! My goal is to grow my hair 1 1/2 inches in 90 days. I'm not sure if  that's considered a high or low goal, but let's consider this: 1) It is rumored that the average person's hair grows about 1/2 an inch give or take a bit per month. 2) My history: Chopped my hair off to 1/2 an inch in 8/2008. If my hair would have retained its 1/2 an inch growth every month since then, it would be a little over 15 inches long by now (which it is not). So, taking these things into consideration, I think I've set a realistic, yet, adventurous goal.

Once I receive my products, and do my next wash, I will actually measure my hair and post pictures so you can follow me on this journey. I don't wanna be a hair mogul, just a mogul who has a successful hair story! LOL. (No, really!)

Anyway, all I can say is, LET'S GO! Until next time, set a personal challenge--what is it that you think you can achieve?


  1. I got a tip for you. Pure unrefined african shea butter. with a coconut oil mix. It works wonders and my beard loves it! Yeah I am dude. And I slighty care about my appearance. Just trying to see if i can grow out some locks. But you must crawl before you walk. Take Care

  2. Thanks for the tip! I ordered some (and coconut oil) and my hair loves these products as well! I can't believe I've been missing out on this all along! I have videos coming soon...
