Behind the Blogger .. No-Heat August

After reading Katey’s post ((from Chronicles of Frivolity)) on her no heat in July challenge I decided to take on the challenge for myself in August!  I am in the process of growing out my hair ((have been since the beginning of the year)) and this is the point in the process when I usually give up.  Keep in mind this is my 3rd attempt since I cut it my freshman year 8 years ago.  Ha!  It gets to my shoulders and seems to stop growing and I get frustrated.  My hair stylist tells me to not use my flat iron so much and it will grow faster but I’ve always been too stubborn to listen. #oops .. But this time I am taking hers and Katey’s advice and going for it!  I conveniently *insert sarcasm* left my straightener in Boston this past weekend ((no worries – they are shipping it back as we speak)) so that gave me a jump start to begin this process.  I have naturally curly/wavy hair so it shouldn’t be too hard to style with no heat but come September 1st you better believe I will have straight locks!

Below are some shots of my wavy styles and braids that I will most likely be doing a lot of this month.  I can’t wait to see how much it grows!

Anyone want to join me on this challenge?!
