Hello my beautiful natural queens!
oin Kim Coles, CurlyNikki, and your fellow curlies on the ultimate hair adventure- - achieving big, healthy, natural hair. Whether your goal is Chin Length or Mid Back Length, to grow out your chic TWA, or to simply achieve healthier natural hair, then this challenge is for you! Kim Coles invites curlycues everywhere to embark on the sometimes difficult, yet, completely rewarding challenge of maximizing growth potential, maintaining length, and revealing your healthiest hair possible. The Kim Coles 2011 Grow Out Challenge dares you to forgo bad habits during this 6 month quest for BIG, healthy natural hair.
The first step to obtaining BIG, healthy hair is to get a trim—each participant will rid themselves of damaged, split, or broken ends. Next, each participant will devise and stick to a healthy hair care regimen, which will consist of a balanced diet and sufficient water intake, gentle handling, minimal heat usage, regular deep treatments, and daily moisturizing. Consistency is key. Although challenging, and sometimes daunting, you'll be able to share your experiences and learn from others throughout the process by continually updating your personal blog and photos.
Each month, CurlyNikki, Kim Coles and Jessicurl will select three lucky entrants to receive a Personal Hair Prescription as well as supply of Jessicurl product. Get started by clicking the "Share Your Story" button below. You don't need a special login for the Challenge; just make sure you're logged in with your usual NaturallyCurly username and password.
