Lately, I’ve been trying to find some new styles to rock with my hair…it seems like every couple of weeks I’m having to revamp my style directory because my hair has been growing so fast. What might’ve worked fabulously this past fall/winter can’t work this spring because, simply put, I have too much hair for it.
I used to be able to wear a frohawk several days in a row, without much wear/tear on my curls. I recently discovered (Tuesday) that the style is good for one-day ONLY now. Bummer!
Because I had just washed my hair on Sunday, washing it again Wednesday to get my curls back wasn’t realistic (too drying on the hair with it still being chilly outside). I opted for a co-wash and since I had an interview later that day, simply letting my hair down and wearing it out wasn’t a good look for me. After bringing out the hard brush and manipulating my strands a bit I found my way back to my old faithful…
My bun is back! I didn’t even realize what I was doing until it was done! It’s been YEARS since I’ve been able to rock a bun with no sock in it but apparently I now have so much volume that a sock is no longer necessary. I had a very professional look without compromising my hair’s integrity. A little 100% shea butter goes a LONG way 🙂
For today, I took my bun a little higher. I hated how the bun in the back of my head made my forhead look so big. I’ve now adopted the little ballerina bun and I’m so lovin it!
Overall, I’m in LOVE with this look! It will be incredibly convenient with this summer’s heat. My hair is heavy and in the summer it gets incredibly hot which is quite wearing on the body after awhile. This bun will help keep me cool and comfortable and give me something to do with my curls when they decide they wanna act a fool!
