1 Month Heat Free Styling - Thoughts!

It has been 1 month since I embarked on my journey of heat free styling!

The main reason for my decision to cut down on blowdrying/straightening was simply because of boredom. I was bored of wearing it the same everyday and I think that the natural texture of my hair has a lot more versatility. I follow a lot of the natural hair bloggers and pages on Instagram that inspire me and I didn't want to inflict any more permanent heat damage on my hair.  

I'm not saying I won't ever blow-dry it or straighten it again, but at least I know what I can do with it now!

So here is a few things I learnt this month!

  • Curls will come back! It's all about patience. As you can imagine I had quite a bit of heat damage on the ends (luckily not as much as I thought) so that initially put me off wearing it as an afro, but I just bit the bullet and you will see that straight ends will start to revert. 

  • It takes a while to learn what works on your hair and what doesn't. Not everything that you see  hair bloggers use will work on you so prepare for a few rough looking days when things go wrong! 

  • It takes WAAAY more time getting ready in the morning now. I thought it would be the other way round! 

  • You don't need to have a lot of money to achieve different styles. My go to's are Ecostyler Gel and Water!
