Ok, so I usually run 5x a week and can't stand to have my BSL curly hair flopping around, I need it pulled back but pulling it back in a tight pony seems so harsh! Any suggestions?

    How long is it? When I had long hair...I pulled mine back with a rubberband...preferably one without the metal piece.. Now that I have short hair...I use a small banana clip and the rubber band for the top.

    My hair once pulled up tight...will loose it's curl so I usually do a loose ponytail or bun..

    I ponytail it or half bun it.

    I've been meaning to get some of those big elastic hair bands to hold back the front hair
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    Sorry I have been roaming around trying to figure out where the best place to post my question would be. And I stumbled upon your post. I have long thick hair and getting longer.I have been pulling it back into a pony for quite a while now,using nylon scrunchie I am beginning to see this is no longer going to work for me as it slides down,and my hair sits on my neck. I have bought claw clips,they are just not big enough to hold ALL of my hair. I was thinking about twisties (kind of like a bobby pin) Has anybody ever tryed these ? I like to pull my hair back and wear it down once a week on Sun. and these smaller clips are even getting to be to small for all of the hair. Does anybody know where i can shop for some accessories for my hair that will work ? If you know of any... I am open for suggestions. UGH !
