2013 MN Challenge

This is an all year challenge. If you plan to use MN as a growth aid anytime in 2013, please join us here!

We will officially start on January 1, 2013. I am opening the challenge now, so that you can gather your MN and think about how/if you will mix it with something else. Many ladies have found MN at their local dollar tree stores (I haven't :sad:), but I was able to purchase a 6-pack at a great price from Amazon.com.



So if you're in...thank and answer these questions:
  • What is your current length?
  • Is this your first time using MN or how long have you used in MN?
  • How will you use your MN (directly/mixed)?
  • What frequency will you apply it?
  • Any other growth aids that you are using?
  • Anything else you care to add?
  • Don't forget a starting pic!

A Few Tips:
  • Pay attention to your hair/scalp. This may not work for you. If you experience any adverse effects (anything that's not the norm for you...some people have reported headaches, shedding, etc.), then reduce or stop using MN.
  • Take special care of your ends. Most people experience faster growth, but you don't want to lose it by having to get frequent trims.
  • You can't focus your growth by putting the MN in a specific area (e.g. nape, edges). No matter where you put it, it seems to grow all over.
  • If you feel a little self-conscious about purchasing MN, find yourself the darkest pair of sunglasses you can and throw a wig on so no one will know your true identity when you hit the feminine product aisle:lachen:
  • 4% MN can be found in the 3 day prefilled applicators.
Can't wait to see your lovely growing results!!!

yes! i got that idea from her the first time i joined. it didn't make my hair seem dry when i used that instead of just mixing it with an oil. plus it gave me a tingling feeling i liked. i am going to be more consistent next time around to see if will help me.

I already have my mn mixed. I decided to mix my mn with mizani rose h2o moisturizer & another moisturizer by mizani, that I can't remember the name. I also mixed in sum walnut oil. I didn't like applying the mn w/ oils only cause it kept dripping. This mixture will b applied like a grease.

Hi, I want in this challenge. I tried MN this past summer and I experienced a lot of shedding. The shedding could've been from a deep relaxer stretch. Now that I'm natural, I want to try this again. Saving my spot. I'll post details later.

Add me please. I was slacking in the 2012 challenge, but now it's time to get down to business.

[*]What is your current length?
Shoulder length relaxed (stretching)
[*]Is this your first time using MN or how long have you used in MN?
I used it during the 2012 challenge but I stopped because of skin issues that I thought maybe related (thank goodness it wasn't).
[*]How will you use your MN (directly/mixed)?
Mixed in 2 ways. First mix is MN, castor oil and peppermint oil. The second mix is MN, peppermint oil, castor oil, MTG, and MegaTek (leftover from the previous challenge)
[*]What frequency will you apply it?
The first mix I will use every night the second one I will use when I won't offend anyone but myself...lol
[*]Any other growth aids that you are using?
Just biotin
[*]Anything else you care to add?
The squeeze bottle with the pointy top is what I use to apply
[*]Don't forget a starting pic!
I haven't taken a picture with my actual hair since October so I guess I have to do that before the new year.. so pic coming soon
