Hair Challenge: A Little Imagination

I'm trying out this new thing. I'm not going to touch my hair with heat, a comb, or hairspray for the next month.

I first heard about Bye Bye Beehive in a special guest post on the blog JustLove.lyThings in Autumn of last year. I never really thought much about it until New Year's Day when I had a shower and didn't take the time to do my hair. I decided that night, as I lay in bed, that I would try my best not to do anything to my hair for at least a month -- depending on how it goes, it may be more.

I haven't pinned back my hair in a long time.

This is going to be an interesting challenge for me. Although I don't normally do much with my hair, I usually have to straighten my bangs because they tend to go a bit wonky on one side, and some mornings, when I wake up, my hair needs a little bit of coaxing in a different direction than in which it woke up. Wavy hair can be a bit wild, and I'm going to have to figure out some new ways to deal with it.

I like it so far though. It takes me back to my time in elementary and early high school when doing my hair was not important; I would just let it dry and do as it wished. Here's to simpler times, and a little imagination!

When was the last time you let your hair air dry, or didn't use heat to style it?


p.s. Have you signed up for the Valentine Swap yet?


  1. I could for sure do the no heat and no hair spray, but I don't know that I could do the no combing. lol Since having my boys my hair went wild! Love your blog here. - Nicole from insidethemindofnicole.blogspot.com

    1. I guess I should clarify that the challenge was more about not teasing your hair, but I don't generally comb my hair anyway because it turns into a big fuzz ball. Pregnancy does some interesting things to your hair :)


Thank you so much for your lovely comment!
