One of my favorite parts about having long hair is my ability to use it as a blanket. But that means in the winter I'm leaving it down almost all the time, and letting it get damaged... which is why it's stuck at BSL. To make it worse, I work outside playing in the snow, teaching wilderness living skills to kids. This is the time that it gets the MOST tangled, since it's under a hat, rubbing a scarf, and I'm moving around a lot--but it's also the time I need it as a blanket the most!

Does anyone know any updos that work for BSL hair, that protect my ends and prevent tangles but leave my ears and neck covered with hair? Any ideas are appreciated!!
