    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.

    Major props to buns for minimizing tangles.

    @Elle - Works just like rollover minutes. Example: I get 3 non-buns a week. But if I bun all 7 days (instead of the required 4), I get to use my 3 extra days next week.

    I don't even know if I'd do that though. I don't feel like dealing with my hair, and bunning is the bomb.com.

    I see your point, there's just to many of those gorgeous thick strands of yours. but this is what i would do: I would secure my bun the way i normally do and then add the accessory, so i wouldnt try to secure my bun with it. I think that might work for you. Like i said your local bss probably has something similar you can pick up to try and if doesnt work you only lost a buck as opposed to 12 or 14 i forgot how much it costs.
    I like it, i don't see why it couldnt work on your hair. i actually have something similar i bought a while back at my bss for a dollar. i never thought to wear it like that.
    Do you think this will work on my hair?? I'm looking for cute accessories...

    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.

    Welcome! HAHAHA *evil genius laugh*:evil5:
    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!

    I tried doing this but it soooo did not turn out. I got really frustrated and just left the braids/twists in my hair and then tied my hair back in a bun. Cute! Although, if you didn't know I had braids in my hair, you couldn't really tell.

    I think I'm going to try this again tomorrow but make more braids and some bigger braids. My hair is actually long enough to do that braid wrap around the head thingy, so I will try that too.

    I really liked how my the braids/twists really helped my hair stay in place and really minimized the dreaded poofiness as the day rolls on.
    Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

    Bought some goody spin pins yesterday *dances*


    +1 on the pony puffs!

    I BCed in April and my hair just isn't long enough to pull this off. I could make the donut pretty easily but the hair at the nape of my neck and near the brow kept coming out...I used a hairpin to fix that problem but it was still a hot mess by the end of the day.

    You have such beautiful thick hair, that thing might pop off and break in half! :toothy8:

    Thanks ladies! Yea, when I was relaxed my hair used to break stuff like that, so now that it's like...3x the size I'm not sure it would work...but dammit it's cute!!! I'm going to see if i can test on something cheaper. Thanks for the tip lovies!

    MUTINY!!!! I don't mind rollover bun days either but turtles is the Queen Bunny. I'm loving my pony puffs though...I love my wash n gos but I'm starting to have a LOT of hair and it's in my face alll the time so I usually end up putting it up halfway through the day.

    I just pinappled my hair. I couldn't keep a bun in because it wasn't helping with the pounding headache I already have. I'm too lazy to shower so I guess my hair isnt' down after all. :sad4::hmph:

    I got my hair cut today. Still have enough length that I can make a puny but, but got my layers shaped and shortened, so I will have more sticky-outy pieces. I love the look of your buns using the elastic headbands! I am going to have to try that tomorrow to see if it will work for me to hold back some of the layers. It may not work for me -- I think I will have some pieces where the ends will stick up around the band, or they will still fall forward around my face.

    I have no idea what I did but I just detangled my hair and it was uber annoying.

    I love buns and ponytails but they cause breakage at the nape of my neck, bad breakage. It's frustrating. How can a 3c function without tight buns and ponytails? I wish my hair was stronger back there. Oh well. Loose buns are cute (in the back) but if it's not tight and smoothed back the front of my hair looks a mess.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Hair Type: 3c, medium strand, high volume, soft
    About: Loves moisture
    Current Length: mid neck when curly / bra strap length when straight
    Goal: At least collarbone length when curly
    Regime: KC Knot Today leave in, KC Curling Custard and Aveda shine serum. Style of choice wash and gos and braid outs.
    Pet Peeves: Hair breakage at the nape if wearing tight ponytails. Different curl patterns, looser in front and tighter in back.
    Hair pros: High shine and bounce.

    What was annoying about it? Number of tangles/knots? Time it spent to do it..

    It was more tangled than it's been since I've started washing in sections (like usually I have basically no tangles). It might be because for the past week I've really only put gel on my canopy.

    That's it. I usually apply my gel more thoroughly, so I think that's it.
