I'm Bunnin' It...a grow-out challenge of sorts :)

Nikki, you are awesome for finding those threads! That is true inspiration for me even though I haven't figured out how to actually put my hair in a bun...Don't think it will look right at my length...I'll figure something out though!

Anyway I fold my ends under all around and it forms a bun. Pics r in my album if u want to see what mine ends up looking like.

I'm doing a curlynikki bun today. These things are comfy.

I made a new album and put the current length in that, both wet and dry hair.

I finally figured out how to do a scrunchie bun! Hooray! Kudos to whoever posted the "how to" on this thread. I love it and it looks so elegant. I didn't think I had enough hair but I do

OMG Fleurtzy! I had no idea your hair was that long. It's beautiful. I hate your guts lol. I'm kidding. Maybe this bunning business will help me out too.

Oh, and you're looking fabulous post baby.

EDTA: So, I'm wrapping up my second Aphogee (I'll post my response in the Aphogee thread) and washing my hair I realized some things. 1, the bun means less shedding. 2, the bun keeps the moisture locked in. I found a darker, longer sock last night and covered it in a knee high to make it more curly friendly. I'm pretty stoked, my bun is going to be bigger.

Fleurtzy!!! Your hair is sooooo long! That is the length I'd like by the end of the year...perhaps by the end of the challenge We shall see.

In other news, I got 2 compliments on my bun today while strolling through the mall
The Blog: www.curlynikki.com

Thank you for the compliments ladies, especially the part about me looking fabulous (HeatherNicole). I just did my first challenge bun and I am really optimistic that this is a challenge I can see thru, plus it's just for 3 months.

Nikki, congrats to you. I'm sure the compliments will keep coming. Your hair always looks good.
I'm in on the challenge. I've been bunning since mid-May...trying to keep it going

don't feel bad i have a wimpy scalp/head too...hats, headbands, ponytail holders all cause me discomfort for longer than a day...what options do we sensitive scalp/headed gals have?
