GOC Contender #40: Gina


Name: Gina

Whhhooooopppp! Whhhhhooooop! I am sooo excited to be a part of the grow out challenge because, when the last one started, I was transitioning :). I will be 7 months post BC on 4/24/12 and I feel so behind on my growth, so this came at the perfect time!

Goals: Hair – Honestly, I would love to have my bang as close to the tip of my nose as possible. I would also like to find a way to soften my hair. Oh and I’m working on my PJism :). So far so good!!!; Health & Fitness – I’m 5 lbs away from my goal and above the weight I was when I graduated from high school, which is pretty hot since this year makes ten years … * crickets * … TEN years!!! Lawdy!


  • Co-wash every 2-3 days when hair isn’t in coils.
  • Shampoo every 2 weeks or weekly whenever I do my finger coils, since I use gel. I’m trying to ween off of shampoo completely and just use the beontonite clay to clarify my hair.
  • Deep condition weekly.
  • Henna monthly.
  • Honey/olive oil treatment every other week.
  • Apply regular castor oil every morning and night before bed.
  • JBCO on the edges every morning and night.
  • Trim, as needed I guess. I haven’t felt the need to do so yet.
  • Water. I believe that it makes a difference on my hair and skin.
  • Sleep 8 hours (feels like heaven).

(I may get braids again!!!)

Health & Fitness

  • I plan on finding an activity to help me tone up, whether it be yoga or kickboxing. We’ll see!
  • Oh, and more water and try out new veggies :/.

Reward: Shopping spree and my Huetiful Steamer!!!

Smooches & God Bless!!!
