Marsha’s Final GOC Update


Marsha (Sixth Wave) of Hairoly (aka 24 Hour Hair)

So, the last few months I was a member of the GOC on Hairscapades. The challenge started in August 2011, which was a spin off of the Kim Coles/Curly Nikki GOC that took place at the start of February 2011. I vowed to protect my hair more in order to have a healthier outcome. I also vowed to eat better and exercise more in order to lose only a few pounds.

I failed at exercising. However, I have continued to eat right, cheating from time to time. I am currently 121.5 lbs as of this morning, not the 118 lbs like I wanted to be.

Hair Regimen:

  • I still henna monthly.
  • I shampoo or co-wash my hair every 5-7 days.
  • I deep condition every wash day.
  • I steamed my hair with the steamer maybe twice since the start of the challenge.
  • I purchased a hooded soft bonnet drier and I actually prefer it over the steamer.
  • I pre-poo maybe every other wash day or when I have time to do so overnight.
  • I do more scalp massages more now than before, since my setback with my new found love,  rosewater and peppermint oil, sealing with jojoba oil and/or CD Some of Marguerite’s Magic.
  • I have learned that sticking with what works also increases the health and growth of my hair.
  • I have been doing more protective styles which includes, flexi rodsupdos and mini/microtwists without extensions.

I might not have reached the length that I would prefer, but I definitely feel like my hair has more fullness to it … Anyway, my healthy hair journey and GOC will always continue.

  1. Your hair looks so thick, healthy and voluminous! My goal for the month is to purchase a hair steamer a.s.a.p and I like the streak that the henna has cast upon your hair. Way to go Marsha and keep posting!!!!!


  2. I just love the versatility in the styles. And I too agree regarding the thickness and health of your hair; that is primary for me, length is a distant second.
