Most say two weeks... That's why I was curious if you had relaxed without stopping MN. I plan to relax at 20 weeks (I'm at 14 weeks post). My intention is to continue MN starting back this week (took a hiatus to get my moisture levels up). I'm going to do my NJoy Challenge and MN Challenge simultaneously. HHG

Well I guess tonight was my last night then...lol.

Was there any particular reason as to why people were stopping 2 weeks before relaxing and did anyone have any issues/ bad experiences because they didn't stop 2 weeks before?

I'm back! Had to take a brief hiatus to combat some severe dryness! But the moisture is returning

Applied my MN mix tonight (tweaked a little bit)

.25 oz MN
.5 Tsp JBCO
.5 Tsp Garlic Oil
Tbsp AE Garlic Mask
Few drops of Lacio, Lacio

Applied with my new applicator bottle; which has a very small tip (love it!)

I do not know the reason. But I would use MN like the next day after a fresh relaxer and I have had no problems.

Everyone keeps saying how my hairline is growing. I just wish it would fully recover already! I am still applying mn twice a day.

I'm currently in senegalese braids , but I'm going to participate. I'll apply the MN using an applicator bottle to get through all the partings. I'm also transitioning from texlaxed to natural

Welcome to the Challenge! I was thinking about doing the same thing with Senegalese braids.

So it's been about a month and I'm happy with the growth so far; I can see a subtle, noticeable difference in length. However, I'm not experiencing any growth with my edges, so I will be tweaking my regimen soon...details coming soon. Right now, I want to finish what I have left of my mix. Also, I'm thinking I may have diluted it too much this time around. For the last challenge, I got the most progress by applying straight to my scalp.

I was laying down with my sister and she saw that my scalp was looking kind of dry ...could this be from the mn? Anyone have any solutions?

I did MN two days in a row after taking about a week and a half off, and I've got the itches... Hope this means stimulated growth

Make sure you are using moisturizing DCs and you may want to adjust the ratio of your MN mix.
