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 to 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!
