    Default Nasty bun waves?

    I have had this deal with my hair for about 3 years, where I will put my hair up in a bun a lot and I will get these bun waves that look like dread locks. They're really unsightly, and I was wondering if anyone knows any way to prevent or get rid of them.

    Finger combing seems to break up the dredlock look.

    Most buns give me pretty waves/curls, but I tend to do them rather loosely, which means that I re-do them a lot, but I can't stand anything tight. If you do a tight bun, try to loosen up a little.

    Yeah, I get those too. I have no good solution, but will be interested in what others say.

    Don't bun wet hair. Dry or damp hair cuz the twisting make the natty dredlocks.

    I really quite love bun and braid waves, and often I'll oil my hair lightly when it's half-way dry after a wash and then bun/braid it purely for the waves. I find the oil stops it becoming tangly and too-dry (and dreadlock-ish) for me, and ditto Bene on the finger-combing to soften things up a bit. You can get a quite beautiful effect, especially with French or Dutch braids.

    Do you want it to be straight or is do you just specifically dislike tangly waves (rather than waves generally)?

    sounds like you have very dry ends. work on giving them more moisture and protection.

    you might als want to take your bun down, brush/comb it, oil the ends, and re-do.

    A LWB gives no bun waves, neither do a logroll or a French twist. Try to find buns that you don't have to twist.

    I like bun waves! They never last in my hair, though

    I like it wavy or straight, just not when the waves are all matted.

    I would suggest doing a bun that does not require twisting, such as a LWB or a Pencil Bun. Only bun with dry hair, and comb your hair thoroughly before bunning and after you take out your bun.
