Now that I'm a year into my hair journey (no longer a newbie but DEF not a vet!) I've realized that it might be more beneficial to limit the challenges that I am a part of.
There's nothing wrong with being selective, right? The main idea of a challenge is that it challenges you! (continued after the jump!)
Therefore you won't find me in any APL challenges this year... I'm almost there! I'm on to pushing for BSL and the true challenge of limiting the amount of heat I use on my strands!
Also, you have to know yourself...
- Are you liable to trim/cut/dust throughout the year? Pay attention to the rules!
- Are you a bandwagon jumper? Maybe short-term challenges are best for you!
- Do you need tons of people to keep you motivated? That "super-popular-everyone-is-joining-wow!" challenge would probably work for you!
