I am sure the title made a few people cringe and clutch their pearls but it’s for your own good. Back away from the heat!!! Jen from Just Grow Already, Jay from Relaxed Thairapy, and I are hosting the “30 Days Without Heat Challenge” to give your locs a heat break. I promise after this month you will see a difference in your hair. If you are a daily or weekly heat user, this challenge will benefit you the most. I think I just heard someone’s hair do a praise shout.
Our challenge gives everyone a chance to perfect those heat free styles we haven’t quite mastered and to give each other styles ideas. Pull out your flexirods, rollers, styling creams, and whatever else you need to kill these heat free styles we are about to throw down on. I hope y’all are ready. I have my month planned out with styles I would like to share with you all. I have a length check coming next week and a few other hair topics share. Heck, I even feel a #FOTD coming up.
So, what am I supposed to do with my hair for a month?
Anything you can think of that is a heat free style that you don’t mind rocking in public. My recommendation during this challenge would be to work on your protein and moisture balance. I would focus on improving hair health along with heat free styling. I am always about health over length or cuteness. Y’all know I am not above wearing two braids pinned up with a flower in the front. Hmph! I am not ashamed!
