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.

@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 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!



Well i'm counting pony puffs so just be a rebel with me Elle! l0l

Bought some goody spin pins yesterday *dances*

Okay I'm with Saila on the bun rollover thing.
So bun rollovers And pony puffs count.

Is that cool with u turtles? LOL

lol yes you can have roll over buns and pony puffs


I wore my hair down...because I went to hang out with my friend/ old roommate since we were supposed to go house hunting but can't because i have to work. so today was half bun day and then half down...what does that mean?
That's tricky lol. I keep doing the same thing. I had my hair down today to dry and then after that I put it up.
