Nape Challenge Check-In

All is still well with my nape. I’ve continued to baby my nape by (1) keeping it moisturized and (2) avoiding over-manipulation as much as I can.

I haven’t been using CHI Keratin Leave-In Conditioner or CHI Keratin Mist as much as I did the first two months of my nape challenge. During the last 30 days, I went back to to my long time love Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum for my anti-breakage fix. After moisturizing – most of the time with Pura Body Naturals Murumuru Moisture Milk – I’ve sealed with a few drops of Organix Anti-Breakage Serum. I don’t think I’ll ever fall out of love with this serum (unless Organix goes crazy and changes the formula… knock on wood!) because it never fails to live up to it’s “anti-breakge” promise for me.


The new growth at my nape (1.5″ inches worth) is a bunch of little cork screws so when detangling on wash days I’ve been making sure I part the hair at my nape into 5 sections, vertically, to make sure I detangled as gently as possible and to work out all tangles.


My game plan to grow while preventing further breakage has been working so I’m hoping that by the end of this challenge I’ll have grown a solid 3 inches in order to cut off 3 inches worth of thin, broken ends.

How’s your nape doing?
