I'm always down for a good challenge! I am currently transitioning (10 mo "} ) w/o BC. Rocking twist out have been my thing for about a month now...any other effortless styles that I can try that require no heat? I have 4B/C texture, that I can tell.

I'm having issues with this challenge. I haven't straightened since August 16th. I'm going on 2 months. But there's a girl at work now with long straight hair, and it just makes me wanna straighten mine to see the length so bad. :/

LOL...you're so cute! Well if you're serious about the challenge then you can't give in. However, I told myself that if I get the urge to straighten it then I will since I hardly ever straighten my hair. I also know that straightening my hair doesn't take away any curl whatsoever once I wet it. I also feel like it makes me like my curls more because I start to miss them when it is straight. Just hang in there Ms. Pretty Curls.

Can I join? I have no clue why I began flat ironing my hair in like 5th grade... But now I am in 11th grade and my birthday on the 10th of last month I turned 16 and just began using absolutely no heat at all. I think I'll try to make this a life long challenge ... What do you guys think??

Yay! I'm having withdrawal issues, i feel like my hair is getting longer, and it's been over 2 months since i straightened last so i wanna see the lengthhhh...ugh...but I've been way longer so i know i can do it. My goal is to only straighten twice a year and for the past couple of years, I've succeeded.
