I counted…this is the beginning of week 5 of my bunning adventure 🙂 I’m growing a bit tired of the same old style, but let me tell ya…this has been one of the easiest routines in the world! I’ve received a few emails asking how I achieve my high bun on dry hair. I explained it in a previous post, but here it is again:
-After conditioning and detangling, set the hair in twists or knots
-Take the twists down and apply Shea Butter to the ends of hair
-Pull dry hair up into a high ponytail using your hands only- a comb or brush will create frizz.
-Secure the ponytail with a satin scrunchie
-Optional- add 1 more scrunchie to the ponytail for extra volume
-Fan the hair in the ponytail out and around the scrunchies and secure the hair with a goodie ouchless band
-Pull the hair through (but not all the way) to create a bigger, fuller bun
That’s it! I’m no longer taking it down to moisturize the ends. I just make sure to saturate my hair really well on day 1 and leave it alone for the next 6 days- the less manipuation the better. When I conditioned on Friday, my ends looked absolutely wonderful.
I wear my satin scarf whenever I’m in the house to keep my edges laying down. The good thing about this style is that your edges aren’t pulled tight, since the act of ‘slicking’ never takes place (no brush, or gel used). The inital set pretty much keeps my edges in check and gives my bun a lot of character. I don’t see frizz until day 5 or 6 and that’s when I add a bit of shea butter to tame the halo.
Happy bunning if you choose to do so! I may wear my hair out this weekend coming up. If I do, I’ll definitely take pics 🙂
In other news, I owe you gals a crap load of product reviews. Over the next few days, I’ll be reviewing Hair Rules Shampoo (blah), Zizyphus Shampoo Bar (nice), DevaCurl Angell Gel (aiight), and Punjabi Prime Henna (sweet!).
