Like Tree4Likes

I don't have any protective style pics, but I have actually styled it the last 2 days. I did it curly yesterday and today I caved & straightened it. Ill post pics of both. Next time I put it up ill post those pics too. Here's where I'm kinda starting from. Ill post another length check pic in a month. Pardon me eating my bangs in the curly pic, I'd pulled them aside to fix them lol

Bunning questions ?: Is bunning an efficient protective style? Yes the ends are tucked away, but as far as sleek buns, wouldn't the stress on the edges be damaging? Also how often do you redo your bun? Do you detangle when you redo it? If so depending on how often you redo your bun, it isn't really low manipulation, is it?
Just curious about your opinions.

As far as the edges I usually cowash and maybe do a braid out or stretch my hair somehow and then make my bun, and to keep it "sleek" looking i tie it with a satin scarf at night and then put a little product and tie it back up while I'm getting dressed in the morning. I would say I redo every 2 or 3 days when I cowash (usually closer to 3-4 days) so I do detangle. I guess its really up to you if its low manipulation, like it you redo it daily or something.
I plan on bunning for 4-5 years till I reach waist length. My hair is bunned from the moment I wake up 5am till around 12:30am. I let it breathe for about an hour right before I go to bed . It is only ever worn down on the weekends which are wash/detangle/DC(Or PT) days. So far so good. Although I doubt it will take 5 years since I am 4'11 and for me MBL is BSL. I have a tiny torso. :-)

I wear my hair in a bun all day except when i take it out to wash it from doing the inversion method the past 6 days. Once it's over in 1 more day I plan to wear it up a lot more to protect my ends. I have a sort of short torso so if I can get 8 more inches it will be hip length straightened! xD

Lol I like being short:-) it has it's perks. The inversion method confuses me, I would try i but I don't really understand it. XP. Congratulations on your hair length milestones :-) and good luck on your goals.
Haha Thanks! Good Luck to you too I kinda hate being so short.. If I was 5'2" I'd be happy though (and that still considered short since the avg woman is 5'4") Today is my last day for the inversion method I'm not sure if it's worked well but I think it might have helped even just a bit which is all I wanted anyway haha

Hey is the bunning challenge still going on? I like to bun 3-4 days a week..
I put my hair up in a bun literally everyday, but I don't understand what the binning challenge is?
It's just wearing a bun as a protective style, with your ends covered to protect them and to help prevent breakage. Also to give your hair a break from the friction of touching your clothes and high manipulation styles.

I put my hair up like that but I'm not exactly sure how to tuck the ends of my hair, any suggestions? My hairs gotten pretty long so when I try to do styles it doesn't exactly turn out very well
This is so cool! I've been using Hot Buns, which I found at the "As Seen On TV" section at my local CVS. It makes bunning my mid-back, 3a hair a cinch.
