Today is the day. The day that the 30 day Natural Curly Hair challenge comes to an end. I must admit I am a bit sad to have to finish all this as I truly enjoyed blogging about my ins-and-outs as a curly hair man during this period. I have exchanged quite a few emails, responded to all enquiries and just blogged my way while having some fun. Would do again.
How would I rate the success of this experiment? Well, if you remember my initial pre-experiment post, I outlined several measurers that needed to be met to consider this experiment a success (or not). They were:
1) The hair must remain very similar in curl shape and texture as to its initial state.
2) The hair must not give out any foul odours.
3) The hair must not be excessively matted, knotted or plastered.
4) The hair must not be covered in visible residue, whether that produced from the scalp or external sources.
Now, what I would like to do is to also take into account your opinion so as to gauge the success of this challenge, because you too are the judge here. I would like to encourage you to leave a comment or opinion taking into account the aforementioned measurers and rate the success of the experiment.
I have my opinion already and I have also consulted curly dudette, but I want to hear what you guys think and then we can blend all the opinions into a final evaluation. I think this would be a good idea as it will enhance the documenting of this experiment and be of use to everyone that reads on it. Up for that? If so, leave a comment below the post.
This is what my hair looks on Day 30!
And this is how it looked on Day 1:
Do take into account that on the first day of the challenge I experienced some frizz and dry hair as I shampooed my hair deeply the night before commencing the challenge (read more here). Also, remember to frequently check our Facebook page as I do post additional content through there too and follow me on Twitter to keep yourself on the latest at Manly Curls!
Alright, that is it. Let me know below what you dudes & dudettes think ‘cos I am off to the shower to shampoo my hair!
All the best,
