I'm going to write an article about using a Buff to get volume. Anyone used this technique?

    I wear Buffs when I'm riding the Jeep with the top off or on motorcycles (but more like a big headband and not up in the air like the video. that would look too weird). But I never tried using them at night. I usually pineapple but will have to experiment with this sometime.

    I am STILL waiting for my buff but will comment when I can! I want to see how it sleeps for volume. Pineappling does not work for me.

    Love to get y'all's thoughts on it. I ordered one and it arrived yesterday.  Will try it tonight.

    I used my buff last night on freshly washed, dried, styled hair. It was very comfortable, stayed on easily (it's a bit loose since I've used it so much but still stayed on), and my hair had va-va-volume this morning!  There were a few flat spots around my face but I just scrunched in a bit of water and livened them up.
    Also, the buff will keep your ears warm on a cold night. : )

    I used my buff last night on dry hair. 
    I usually put my hair into a scrunchy at night, but I like the buff better because the hair is looser in there, and not stretched into the scrunchy. 
    The curls look pretty good this morning. A little frizz from fabric contact but not bad.

    So this is actually a quite comfortable way to wear my hair around the house. It gives my hair and head a break from the weight of having it down and keeps it out of the way!
