    Just figured out I haven't been doing my Nautilus bun properly. I need to make the loop bigger and force it over ALL the wound hair as if it were to hold itself. Then put the stick/Flexi in...and now it doesn't hurt anymore :facepalm:

    Gosh I love scalp only washes. They are a legit reason to have extra long hair imo! Dread washing your waist length hair? Just grow another foot and then it’ll be easier! I know, I know, don’t quit your day job, knobbly.
    At my goal length of Classic after 2.5 years here at the LHC.

    I agree, and it's particularly good in cold winter weather.

    Waist to hip is really testing me, I know I just need to forget about it but I'm really not a fan of this journey I just want tbl already

    My original plan was to get the ends of my hair professionally bleached, and dyed. Now I'm wondering if I should just try bleaching my hair on my own. I've never done it but it can't be that hard, right? Of course, it's also short now so probably harder to do on my own but it would be so much cheaper...

    All my life I've been "bun dumb" because I just had NO clue. Two or three years ago I googled a pinless bun and found a You-Tube tutorial for a 10 second no-pin bun which was a nautilus for very long hair (done by Lucy's Corsetry). Until this year it's been the only one I knew!

    It does become easier and increasingly efficient the longer you grow

    I still feel like I have no clue after all this time I've been doing this vertical nameless bun as my primary style since my first year here and am only starting to venture out of my comfort zone now that I have nice hairtoys I want to show off. I have maybe two others now and a number of aspirations, but it's so hard to get my hands and my hair to cooperate!

    I feel the same way Kerrtu-Kevšt I wish my hair was just at hip length already! And I just got a (much needed) trim so I'm starting back at waist length again. My hair has never been past waist length so I'm anxious to meet this length.

    In my experience bleaching my own hair "was that hard"- more damage, weird colours, and colour banding.

    I wouldn't if I was you. But! You might have better luck than me.
    Grow grow grow, where it stops no body knows.

    I just got a trim back up to waist too! I was close-ish to hip but I ended up trimming a bit more than I thought so back up to waist it was, I appreciate the fresh ends though. I get the anxiety about it as well, In my adult life the longest it's been was just brushing hip(I had around classic as a teenager) so by the end of the year it'll probably be the longest it's been in 7-8 years
