A new year brings new year’s resolutions, and the Galileopress staff wanted to take the opportunity of a fresh start to take on a 7-day challenge. The challenges were meant to break them out of their comfort zones or try something new in order to better themselves. Here’s how it went:
My 7-day challenge was “to not use any products on my hair for styling purposes, simply just shower and use shampoo. The reason I decided on this challenge was that I wanted to see how I would look with my not done and what kind of reactions I would get.
Typically I get up at 6:15 am and take a shower then brush my teeth and get dressed and then spend at least 10 mins doing my hair. I leave conditioner in after the shower, then blow dry my hair, add the curler enhancer, and leave it like that.
Going into the challenge, my biggest concern was that I felt like my hair was going to look terrible, and I thought people at school would make fun of the way my hair looked. However, all of these concerns weren’t necessary as many people gave me compliments as some people said they liked my messy look.
Not everyone was so kind though as some people said I looked like a “train wreck”. I felt kinda bad at first like it would seem like I was just a sloppy person, but I started not to care and just forget about it. Eventually, I got use to not doing my hair in the morning and it actually felt good.
The other effect that the challenge had on me was few days my sleeping schedule. I got use to not having my hair done and it actually affected me as I started waking up later than usual and I would barely get to school on time.
I would say overall, that this was a good experience. I will never ever do this again though because it doesn’t look professional in a way, but it was kind of a fun experience. My hair was soft and people actually wanted to touch my hair and gave me tons of compliments on how soft my hair really is. I also saved $30.23 in hair product this week
