    This bun = WINNING!

    Did u do the below on freshly washed hair?

    First Day!

    Moisturized my hair with Oyin Hair Dew, used Darcy's Botanicals Curl Cream Gel to hold the edges and flyaways back and sealed with Shea Moisture Reconstructive Elixir.

    greenandchic's bun is so sick!!!! totally loving it and very very jealous. ;-)

    so here are my starting pix. did this bun on a braidout. i did the flat twists around the edges so the bun doesnt pull too tight. i moisturized with shea moistures curl enhancing smoothie n sealed with coconut oil for the braidout then b4 i did the bun i misted some water around my edges then smoothed some of my shea butter mix to soften them up and slick the edges since im not a huge fan of gel esp if im not washing my hair the next day.

    im really looking forward to seeing how this all works out for everyone. lets hope i retain some serious length this summer! :-)

    @tterrell - My bun was done on dried second day hair. I tried it with freshly washed hair in the past and my hair never dried in the middle. :confused1:

    @HopelesslyDope Thanks!

    Alright I'm a day late but I'm in! Gotta take pics. I can only do sock buns does that count? I covered my sock with an old satin scarf to keep it from drying me out. Please tell me im not a rule breaker :(

    Last night I decided to drown my hair (sort of) in a rinse out conditioner and sealed with an oil due to the fact that my hair was feeling really dry for some reason. I twisted it in 4 sections and did the baggy method. This morning I put it in the same bun as yesterday, but a little on the messy side. No combing, not even figure combing, very low/little manipulation. My hair was super soft this morning.

    your flattwist braid bun is super cute, i'm going to try it next week. I suck at flatwists though, i'll post pics if it comes out cute

    so here are my starting pix. did this bun on a braidout. i did the flat twists around the edges so the bun doesnt pull too tight. i moisturized with shea moistures curl enhancing smoothie n sealed with coconut oil for the braidout then b4 i did the bun i misted some water around my edges then smoothed some of my shea butter mix to soften them up and slick the edges since im not a huge fan of gel esp if im not washing my hair the next day.

    @chameleonrose: thanks!! def give it try! cant wait to see pix!

    @foreverturtles: you basically start it by taking to small sections at the beginning of the row, as if you were going to just do a regular 2 strand twist but then you kind of start working your way around adding more hair from the row to each section as you go. idk if im explaining it well :-/

    ok i found this tutorial on YT thats pretty much the same way i flat twist: YouTube - ‪Flat-Twist tutorial‬‏

    HTH!

    Ugh, I hated my hair by the end of the day yesterday. I hated it so much, I co-washed it and went to bed with wet hair (which I NEVER do).

    Conditioner and aloe vera makes for a cute bun if you just want to look cute for a couple of hours. Next time, I should use real gel.

    I was wondering if maybe my hair is too thick for it to hold. That girl's hair is like 1/3 of mine lol.

    @LeeLee I really think ponies should count! My hair is off my shoulders and it's actually less stress than a bun for me b/c I only need to place to scrunchie around my hair to hold it up, no looping or pulling.

    @Saila What exactly will rollover bun days entail hmmmm?

    @turtles Your bun looks cute! I still love your highlights.

    Hey everyone! I thought I would post in here cause it doesn't have that much traffic so I thought maybe some traffic could come this way.

    Anyway, I thought it would be fun to have a bunning challenge.

    The Challenge would be June 1sst - September 1st.

    The rules would be:

    - You have to have wear some type of bun at least 4 days a week.

    - You don't have to be 3c to participate you can be whatever you wanna be..I'm probably not even 3C lol.


    - That is all.

    - Oh and You don't have to sleep in buns..unless you want to.

    - ADDED!: You can't sleep with your hair down! (that just causes a disaster for me anyway)

    Anyone can chip in some rules, I have no idea really.

    I thought we could update with pictures of our buns if we make any creative ones.

    I'll try and post a picture of my length before or on June 1st. I'm too lazy to do it right now.

    Okay well I'm going to start now but it will officially start on june 1st.
    I am definatly in! Thanks Elle for mentioning this! It should be easy since I really only wear my hair out for the weekends!
