My Personal No Heat Challenge | .::Grow With Me::.

I’m one week into my no heat challenge and I’ve got about 9 more weeks to go.  Since my decision to try this out, I’ve been brainstorming on how I should change my regimen to give me the best air dried hair.  And I know what you’re thinking, “Kim, you’ve done this heat free thing before. You’ve got this.”  Yes, you’re right but I haven’t gone heat free for more than 2-3 weeks at a time since 2011 and I’ve always felt like I could do better when it comes to air drying.  I’ve never been able to nail down a regimen that provides me with consistently good results.  I made a video(see below) discussing the possible changes to my regimen and I’m still not positive on what final regimen I will end up with, but I’m looking forward to testing out new combinations.

  1. Hey Ebony,

    No, I haven't made an official review yet. But I have used it once, and so far I have no complaints. It seems to be quite similar to the Roux Fermodyl vials. I haven't compared the ingredients lists, but they seem to be very close in what they're supposed to provide the hair. I'm going to keep using it and see how I feel about it after a couple more wash days.


  2. What method do you use to air dry? (i.e. dry in bun, dry in braid, etc)


  3. I use a t-shirt to get rid of the excess moisture and then let it dry the rest of the way in a bun.
