    Default Best way possible to keep hair from tangling? Help?

    So my hair is BCL and thick. When I am inside I tend to wear it in a side braid or down to reduce the friction. But I live in the Chicagoland area and the cold weather is not kind here, so I have to wear a coat, hat, and scarf. If I put it in a ponytail underneath, it is always really tangly when I take all the winter clothes off. Even if I braid it underneath, it still rubs and gets knotty. My hair is very healthy but it still gets tangled when its underneath all of my winter clothes. I am trying to find a solution to this so I am not finger combing my hair for like fifteen minutes every time I come back in the house. I am still struggling with bun making, but is that the best route? Will it fit under my hat? I don't want to expose my hair to the cold climate, that is why I tuck it in.

    I think finally learning how to make a bun will help you majorly! Braids sometimes aren't the right way to go about things.

    I agree I think that in this case buns are your best bet. Have you tried cinnamon buns? They're pretty and hold well, and if you secure them with pins or mini claw clips then they fit nicely under hats provided the hat has space for more than just your head.

    No guarantee about tangles but here is how Dr. George Michael wrote about wearing long hair during winter:

    Detangle the hair, divide it in two sections. Take the section on the left and bring it around the back of your neck so that it lays down on the right side of your chest.

    Take the remaining portion, bring it around the back of your neck, so that it lays flat down the left side of your chest. You are basically crossing your hair in the back, and letting each portion lie on your chest. This style is comfortable, and more importantly, protective. If you are still having tangle troubles, you could band each side with a couple of hair friendly elastics.
