I will upgrade the challenge by continuing this challenge for an addition 11 months as suggested by DrC (thank you for that suggestion) and the upgraded challenge will be continued on the first of every month following November, that means the upgrade will run through from December 2013 to November 2014.

I really don't like posting strict rules since every won't be able to adhere to them.
To do the challenge you can warm your oil of choice in the microwave for 15 seconds, apply to your scalp then Invert doing the position you feel most comfortable in; r you can choose to invert without oiling.

:needpics: so i implore you to take Before and After shots because that's where the proof is:yep::yep:

HHG Ladies, lets do this!!!!

I would definitely love to enter this challenge.
I inverted in the beginning of the month of October and I was ready to start in November any how. This challenge will be good for me.

Natural/Relaxed: Natural, not quite completely done transitioning out of colored hair.
Current Length: between NL and almost APL.
Goal Length: FULL APL by my wedding 10 10 14
Oil of Choice: Rapunzel Oil as I like to call it. It is a strong herbal oil blend. (I'm an herbalist so I cooked something up extra special.) I call it Rapunzel Oil because it smells so bad, and makes your mouth hot (!!!) that it is probably potent and could grow Rapunzel/Classic length hair, but no one can withstand it. he he he he...

Anywho I will most likely dilute the oil and give myself a scalp massage, all the while inverting for 5 minutes. Then I will LOC method, plastic wrap my hair and GHE until some time the next day.
