    I voted cheese... I used to do exactly what Manderly describes and it would stay fantastically... the last time my hair was the length it is now. I'm not sure if my hair is just healthier, and thus slipperier (I used to swim in chlorinated pools a lot) or if it's just gotten weird in the last 10 years, or what, but my hair would stay like that forever. I could swim a few laps freestyle with that bun and it would stay. No more though.

    I've never been able to do it at any length. My hair slips right out. (edit: I just tried Manderly's method and it lasted for 2 minutes of the motion-heavy activity of sitting at my computer drinking a cup of coffee.)

    Well, that's not entirely true. It works if I have 2nd day hair which has been curled and hairsprayed. That gives it enough texture and tackiness to hold. But it doesn't work at all with my natural texture and no products.

    Ye, I can do this...but I'm a slider too. It stays in longer if it's more tangly or sweaty. Lovely, yes?

    I'm gonna try Manderly's method and see how that goes.

    ETA: Aaannd that's a no go. Waaaaaaahhhhhh!

    Try my method! Have you tried my method? I'm all excited about my bread-bag method.

    I posted instructions on another forum... I'll see if I can find the link. Of course, it really doesn't work for everybody, anyway. But still... it's fun to try!

    Here's a link. Not the greatest instructions ever, but I included pics.
    Note: My starting length of APL is from long before I'd ever heard of the LHC. That's just when I started consciously growing my hair out again.

    Haha! Okay, that worked for a couple of minutes...it still fell out, but it stayed longer than anything else I've tried.

    Ok, fair enough. Thanks for trying. It always works better on damp, just washed hair, though. Just a thought. Not trying to make you try it again or anything...

    Ach! The pressure! I can't take all this PRESSURE!!!

    Okay. That's better. ^^^That must have been the lady my husband calls my 'Evil Twin - Vanessa'.

    Today is a wash day, Viks, so I'll try again and report back to you ASAP! This is very important business, I know.

    Woohoo! (tantrum ignored - evil twin Vanessa must have been spoiled by too much attention ).

    Can't wait to hear your results.

    Sure. For the whole of 5 seconds.

    My hair is very slippery - even most toys and tools won't hold.

    I got it to stay!!!! Apparently my ponytail spot has shifted downward with age (what hasn't ). If I start my bun closer to my crown it'll stick for a bit!!!!!! Yay
