Default Bunning & breakage for growth

My 3b, medium, high porosity hair is currently arm pit length & I'm aiming to grow it to mbl or wl. I'm in an awkward stage because I am natural & I've got many tips to bun which gets you over the apl hump to bsl & beyond. I know that always bunning causes breakage & of course I don't want that. Any tips to prevent breakage while still bunning? :-) any tips are welcome!

Learn different types of bun, don't pull tight, twist different ways each time, use gentle secures like Spin Pins.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut
Treatments: Komaza Matani, coconut oil, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Boots Essentials gel
Experimenting with: going back to basics

I do that already, so much breakage shouldn't occur?

I think braids are less damaging. And its not even the buns that damage. Its securing them...
I bet people's hair wasn't as damaged before hair ties, bobbies, headbands,clips etc. Were invented.
They crease your hair and snag. When you tie your hair I'd reccomend soaking it in olive oil or something and then securing loosely. I probably sound crazy but your post made me really think about it. Heat and then there's protective styling that's counterproductive. I think we'll juat have to get creative lol

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.

I sock bun with a micro fiber sock. I always put it in fairly loose as I HATE the feeling of my hair being pulled back tight. It hasn't caused me any damage.
