Growth & Retention Challenge 2017

Hi dolls! Our Growth and Retention Challenge starts today 12 January, 2017 yaay! 

This challenge focuses on proper hair care, healthy hair care regimens and length retention. Many challenges focus on growing hair quickly and as rapidly as possible while neglecting that length retention is the key to achieving your hair goals! Hair Retention is Keeping the hair you grow! A lot of people complain their hair has stopped growing, what may be happening is that you’re losing the hair you grow through breakage just as fast as the hair is growing so it seems that hair growth has stopped.


Begin challenge by sending/posting a length check of your hair’s starting point, measure with tape rule and fill in  chart (sample of chart below). If your interested in participating send in your beginning growth chart and length check pictures to
