    It depends on how long your hair is already. If you are able to easily make buns with your current length having layers could possibly bump you out of the needed length. That's what happened to me and it makes me quite sad, the shorter pieces will not stay in so I get a bun with a bunch of craziness sticking out. But if you are at waist or longer then you should be fine.
    Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans

    What are some buns and other updos that are possible to make with thick hair?
    A while after I joined people recommended the disc bun, so thatís the only one I learned, but itís been quite some time and my hair grew since then, so I wonder if I unlocked some more options by now!

    I do not have thick hair, but from your pic your hair looks significantly longer than mine, and I can do a LWB (lazy wrap bun) easily. There are some good youtube tutorials. Or the bun where you twist your hair around in a circle and put the subsequent twists underneath the top layer... like a modified cinnamon bun I think? I would think you could do those two.

    Have a look at the show me your buns thread, there’s some nice updos on there.

    I keep a U-shaped hemline. The one thing that I think is really affected is how a single braid down the center of the back looks. Because of the shorter hair at the sides, unless you leave a very long "tail," there will be quite a lot of braid shed. This is not so obvious/pronounced if you are doing two or more braids, though. I have often worn my hair with a U-hem at waist length and have had no problem at all making buns.

    Can aloe have a similar effect as glycerin in places with high humidity?

    First 2 I learned were the LWB (lazy wrap bun) and now I generally stick to the Nautilus (awesome quick & easy bun).
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    I believe both aloe and glycerin are humectants, but glycerin is stronger I believe

    Thanks. My hair hates glycerin, now I'm wondering if it also hates aloe.

    Could be. Even though aloe is film-forming with complex molecules and glycerin has a simple short molecular structure, I understood aloe is a finicky humectant and not everybody's hair responds well to it. I wonder if it's caused by the high magnesium content of aloe vera.
