    Oh i've used the goody spin pins twice..i like em!

    I have a bun in my hair now for bed..although i may take the pin out and replace it with a scrunchie while i sleep but anyways. I'm using one pin and it is holding my hair firmly in place.

    ETA: took a pic of my bun..why do my buns always look so anemic.
    i also took one showing the spin pin.

    I did a wng today and I'll do a wng tomorrow. I trimmed off my thinning sheared ends and I am in love. Good riddance. My hair looks full and soft again. I lost a lot of length in some areas. My bun now has a few pieces that stick out on the sides or don't go all the way back. Not sure if I can continue this challenge. I'll try out my wng tomorrow and go from there.

    I'm kinda late, but I definitely want to do this challenge!

    My hair is straight at the moment because my graduation cap wouldn't have fit on my head otherwise :mrgreen: but I'll make up for it with 24/7 bunning as soon as possible. I'm loving everyone's creativity so far.
    Hair Type: Mostly 3c with some 3b at the nape. Thick, dense, dry, and very frizz-prone. Almost shoulder length when curly, brushing APL when straight.

    Routine:
    CG with Aussie Moist, style with whatever gel or pomade I happen to have on hand at the moment :laughing6: (I really need to work on finding a set routine)

    I recently decided to do more protective styles so this will be perfect. I'll mostly be in single twists and single braids this summer...so I'll be bunning on top of that.:toothy4:

    I've accomplished my four buns for this week. I did my bun on wet hair yesterday and re did it for today.

    I need to invest in some bun accessories. To jazz it up a bit.

    I've been bunning all week. This morning, I co-washed with my usual suspects and made a quick, messy, wet folded bun with a leave-in and light gel. I will probably twist my hair tonight for a dry bun tomorrow...

    It's too late to join now probably but I bun all the time. I have some styles in my photobucket album. I think the key for me is cute accessories.

    Very cute! I have a few flowers I got from H&M, but I need to get more accessories myself.

    I've let my hair dry some this morning and now I'm about to put it up in my puff I think...

    Hahah I just put it up...and my hair is still damp so it feels like it weighs a ton. I missed having hair!!! :)

    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.


    Messy buns can really look nice as well. But I know what you mean about the strays.

    Although, I haven't checked in; I have been participating.
    I have been co-washing at night then putting my hair in two strand flat twists (I guess that is what they are called). I have worn a bun everyday due to the weather. Nothing new and exciting because I haven't felt like playing in my hair. Just a regular ol' bun. I need to watch some youtube videos. :idea1:

    You can always smooth back the strays with a light gel or even aloe vera gel. You can always tie a satin or silk bandanna or scarf around your hairline (not tight). They are super cheap at places like Ross.

    I'll be enviously watching all you ladies and your lovely buns.. (wait that didn't sound right..lol)


    I'm just having hair cut regrets.. It's growing, but it's too short for even a bunny tail.

    Bun are easy and coconut oil is the best oil for it. My hair is blinging, now all I have to do it start doing some interesting style bc the high bun isn't going to cut it for too long.

    Yea I hear you. I started using coconut oil a month ago & I'm in love w/it! & yes I also need some new bun ideas myself...I really wish I knew how to cornrow or do flat twists so I could braid/twist up the front & then pull it all into a bun...well I guess I just discovered my new natural hair research topic!

    Week 2 wearing buns and on day 3 hair. Dry twist-out bun again though I need to moisturize my hair tonight before bed. I will measure my hair tonight since I don't know how long it is in the back.

    Try Crystalmood.com for some cute accessories.
    This fork was 14.50 but their prices for accessories can go as low as $3.00

    I called myself doing a bantu knot-out but it failed. This is my resulting bun with the new fork.
