GOC Contender #5: Margaret


Name: Margaret

Goals: Length goal – Waist Length (Current length is just below BSL, close to MBL). Declutter and Cleaning 2012, reclaiming healthy eating and continuing my current exercise routine.



  • Finger detangle and pre-poo with coconut oil/Vatika oil 24 hrs, or no less than 30 minutes, prior to wash.
  • Wash with heavily diluted Lemon Coast Terressentials Hair Wash or Terressentials dupe using Rhassoul Clay (Fri).
  • Modified co-wash with Giovanni 50/50, AOHSR or Tresemmé Naturals (Tues or Wed).

  • Last rinse with cool water.
  • Apply modified Kimmaytube Leave-in-using Giovanni Direct Leave-in or 50/50 Conditioner mixed with Hempseed Oil, AVJ, JBCO and Cocasta Shikakai Oil.
  • Braid hair into 6 braids, sealing ends with KBB Butterlove and allowing hair to air dry.
  • Seal ends nightly with homemade shea butter mix.
  • Search & destroy and trim as needed.
  • Finger detangle, comb and style (use comb for parting only).
  • Protective styling: Plan to decrease the number of braids from 8 to 6. Would also like to try new styles, as I am style challenged :(.

Would like suggestions regarding co-washing more.

  1. I was thinking just what the other ladies are thinking. Your hair has to be the most beautiful I’ve seen to date. Boy, I think you’re my new hair crush!!!

    I know that everybody’s hair is different but I’m about to pick up your hair regimen to see if I can get my texture to pop like that 🙂


  2. Gorgeous healthy hair! I think you should re-think your reward, a reward for the challenge and still a gift to yourself for your bday, why limit the self-giving?? Good luck in your goals!
