Go hard or Go home!

I have decided to begin a 4 month challenge. My goal is to get my ends in better shape and  hopefully achieve my goal of armpit length hair by my two year mark.  To achieve my goals I have decided to do the L.O.C. method to retain moisture and to use NJoy's Sulfur mixture for achieving length. 

L-Liquid: You first use a liquid on your hair, I will be spraying my hair with distilled water.  

O-Oil: You seal the liquid with an oil or butter,  such as grape seed oil.

C-Cream: You then put a cream over the oil and liquid, I will be using up the remaining portion of the ENSO Naturals leave-in.

Each of these are suppose to seal the latter. Oil seals liquid and so forth, I plan on using this as my moisture method every other day just to maintain a balance.

NJoy's Sulfur Mixture (check out
1 heaping tsp Sublimed Sulfur Powder 
4 oz Organic Jojoba Oil -carrier that mimics scalps natural sebum
2 oz Jamaican Black Castor Oil
-stimulates growth and thicken growth
2 oz Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil(EVOO)- nourishes hair and scalp
4 -5 drops of Rosemary Oil- stimulates growth
4-5 drops of Peppermint Oil - stimulates growth

* Feel free to substitute/add any of the oils you already have on hand, just maintain the 8 oz mixture*

Mix all of the above ingredients in an 8 oz applicator bottle. Allow the mixture to sit overnight and perform a patch est prior to use. A great place to do a patch test would be behind the ear or the nape of your neck, in an inconspicuous place. The sulfur will not dissolve, so don't be alarmed. Just shake up the mixture prior to each use. 

Caution: Sulfur will cause a reaction in most people if used at a 10% or higher concentration in the mixture. This recipe is at approximately 7-8%. Please be safe and patch test the mixture.

Sulfur can be drying so it is very important to maintain the moisture balance within your hair. That is also why I have chose to do the L.O.C method.

I hope to document my journey over the next 4 months to show my progress.

What are you doing to attain your hair goals?
