Week 2 of Hair Journey (Stretching/New Growth)

Well it's week two of my hair journey and I've already got new growth:

I cannot stop playing with it lol. I'm actually quite surprised but I think I owe it all to this:
Yep JBCO! I am doing my own little mini castor oil challenge and applying it 5 times a week to my scalp and my hair for the next 3 months. I've seen it aids growth and strengthens hair. I'm hoping for a lot more new growth on my edges especially which need growth after a lot of weaves and braids :(:

But the issue of stretching I know the less relaxer the better but if I've got this much growth at 2 weeks how is it going to be at 8 weeks? The initial plan is to stretch for 8 weeks then add on a week more then a week more etc. But I cannot ever see myself stretching beyond 10-12 weeks! But the hair journey is going well I'm having fun trying out bantu knots, twist outs and braidouts of which I will post pictures later. Bye for now!


  1. I felt the same way about stretching when I first started my hair journey. I was used to relaxing every 8 weeks. The first time I made it to 14 weeks, I was so shocked. It was as if I accomplished the impossible lol. I did learn my lesson during that stretch though, I refuse to do deal with all that new growth. I now draw the line at 12 weeks, MAX!

    I'm looking forward to reading about your progress with JBCO. I keep debating about buying this oil.

  2. It's great, grape seed oil is on my wish list. Hopefully i can do an 8 week stretch then time 9 then 10!
