Wrapping up the twists challenge, it’s time for another! The twists challenge was a seagueway to the coconut oil challenge and was an unofficial challenge.
The coconut oil challenge is the official challenge and there’s a prize for participation! We’ll get to that but for now, let me share a little of why I thought the summer would be a great time to do a coconut oil challenge.
Coconut oil is typically solid at room temperature and may be a little more difficult to work with during the colder months. It can also solidify in your hair. I have found that while coconut oil has many benefits, you can’t readily enjoy them when your hair feels crunchy because the oil has turned solid while you were out in the cold!
40 Days & The Rules
Now that the weather is warmer, it’s time to kick off the 40 days of coconut oil challenge! It starts now and will run through Friday July 19th. If you’ve met the qualifications (simple participating by commenting on each challenge post, in response to the questions), you’ll be entered to win a grand prize which I will share mid way through the challenge (I want to make sure everyone is doing it for the right reasons….length retention).
For the next 40 days we will be incorporating the use of coconut oil into our hair care regimens. Coconut oil has MANY benefits for your hair:
- Eases dry, itchy scalp
- Helps prevent moisture loss
- Helps protect hair from protein loss when used as a pre-poo
- Simulates a protein treatment, helping to strengthen hair strands
To officially join the challenge, please respond to the following questions in the comments section below:
- What do you expect to receive from the challenge?
- Have you used coconut oil in your hair before?
- How do you plan to use coconut oil this week?
Keep up: A challenge post will go up every Monday through the end of the challenge. The winner of the grand prize will be announced on Monday, July 22nd. So that you don’t miss any of the posts, subscribe to receive free notification here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/BrownBeautyBlog
