    I'm wondering if the way I do my buns cause damage! I have fairly thick hair (9 inches circumference due to volume/curls) and I can't do a lot of buns well without getting a shoulder workout in and doing some advanced geometry. So, I've always created a ponytail then looped the hair tie around the part that's hanging out to create the bun "effect." The weight from the bun tends to hide the ends at the bottom. My buns are very loose - I don't try for sleek styles at all so there's little tension on my scalp. I'm trying to figure out how to move away from hair ties but I'm just worried about constantly messing with my hair because I'm having trouble getting a stick, fork, etc to stay in, and thus mechanical manipulation goes up.

    It's the way a lot of people do buns, it's fine! 9 inches? I am like 4.25 and needed hip length to comfortably bun the regular style, with a hairfork. So you have your growing cut out for you. The one thing I would not do is damp bun (see your other thread). Scalps need to breathe and need to be allowed to dry without there being spots where the air can't reach. If that makes sense?

    Does anyone have a way to tie braids in a non damaging way? I have fine hair so even a single braid containing all my hair is very skinny at the end. I've been using toddler sized regular hair ties but I was wondering if anyone knows a better way to tie off the braid? I've tried a regular scrunchie but it slips off, and invisibobbles look too bulky when they're wrapped around enough times to stay in place.

    I like small velvet scrunchies.

    You can braid in ribbon at the end, then wrap it round and tie off.

    I do this all of the time so I have linked below an Imgur album where I do it step by step. I hope this is close to what you need because I can't seem to get a clear video.

    Leather hair wraps also do nicely for protecting the tassel.

    I actually had a question about this! When it says to measure from the forehead to the back of the head and down....what exactly am I doing? Am I taking 3 different measurements from different parts of my head? Am I taking a piece of my hair from the front, pulling up and over my head and then down my back? I got super confused by this (maybe because I have short hair, and hair from my forehead definitely isn't going to go up and over my head, haha)
