Now, YOU get to behave like springsteel, and I get to wear one of my favorite hairtoys without having random hairs pulling at my scalp. We both get what we want, and nobody gets hurt. Cool?

It's like our hair is related. But definitely describe what you did here. I will be by my computer with my ficcare in my lap patiently waiting. I see some braiding action going on...but I'm not for sure..

I did a Faux French Braid (Torrin Paige has a tutorial) and secured the end with an elastic. Then I just folded it up and clipped the Ficcare over the elastic. :D

Easy as pie. (no, actually, easier than pie. ;)) and I can see it working well at lots of different lengths, the folded braid will just be longer.

Awesome thanks. Watched the torrin paige one. Did what you did but with a really skinny scrunchie the color of my hair under the ficarre. It looks the same except the braid droops a couple more inches. Even my fiancÚ likes it. Thanks again for the quick reply :)

Wow, Kaelee, I'm usually not a fan of this type of updo, but yours just looks so wonderful and full of life, I love it!

I hate to say it, but some small version of that springyness can be seen on my peacock twists - all the time. You get used to it, and it's comfortable, so... what more can you ask for? ;)

I love it! It's edgy and structural. Very nice job! :thumbsup:

I'm not usually a fan of this style either. I was having a bad hair day. I actually put my Ficcare in my purse yesterday and just braided (after re-doing my flipped cinnamon bun at least TEN TIMES at work...because it just. would not. be put up.) I found out that humidity makes updos dang near impossible on my hair. So when I came home, I decided to start playing around with it and did this. It's comfortable, I'm not usually a fan of the "ends sticking up" but I kind of really like it. Plus, the overwhelming positive response I'm getting here is helping. :D

Cute! My hair won't do that anymore - it's gotten too long to stick up and fan out like that. Now when I wear my hair that way I have a shoulder-length ponytail. You can skip the elastic if you want, I never used one with this style. Also, if you don't want to braid it you could simply twist your hair and fold the twist against your scalp, secure with Ficcare, done.

I'm pretty sure if I don't use an elastic, my hair will escape. It doesn't like to do braided anything without the elastic...twisting it up doesn't work either (because I'm actually anchoring it to the top part of the braid. Besides, it sort of looks like a pineapple and I really like that! :lol:) My hair is entirely too slippery and springy.

Sticks also hold up the pineapple! Really well, actually! (One stick works well, but I thought two looked better and felt more comfortable). I feel like I need a brightly colored/pretty elastic with this. Of course if I'm just lounging around or working, it doesn't really matter.

It sounds like my hair! I've never had it this long before, so have to figure it out as I grow. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing the pictures. :love: I'll try those hairdos, and if I can't manage them yet, will look forward to them soon. (I would never have thought to use an elastic and hairsticks like that.) It looks really cool. :applause:

I think I want to get some fold over elastic to try (I'm paranoid of damage!) But I am getting so many compliments on this style that I think I will be wearing it much more often! It's very easy and comfy (especially with the sticks!) And I don't have to wrestle with my ends. I wore it to work and several people have fussed over my hair so far. I didn't expect this style to get this much love!

Lol when I first read this post I read "Ok fine hair, you win", so I clicked (as I have fine hair lol) and when I looked at your pictures I was like OMG that hair is NOT fine AT ALL!! What is mine if that is fine? and just stayed for a while admiring how each strand stands on its own without just floating/lying around as mine do...
Then I decided to read the title again and realised you weren't talking about fine hair :p

Actually though, my hair IS fine, by my standards anyway. Although it seems to have gotten a bit coarser/have coarser strands as I get older (also henna might have something to do with it). My mother has always called my hair 'baby fine'.
