    Default Oh no! my poor hair :(

    So I had my hair in a flipped bun with my fork, and it felt tight (I can NOT manage to do an updo without it being too tight!) but then it was a little better so I left it. It was only in for an hour or so.

    When I pulled out my fork and combed my hair, a whole handful of hair came out! I think when I put the fork in I yanked the hairs out by the roots!!!!!

    My hair is thick so I don't think I did too much damage, and I have been shedding a LOT less than usual anyway but dangit!

    I'm sad.

    Oh ouch! That sounds so painful. Maybe you should try doing buns that are less tight to begin with. My siggy shows the knot bun which holds really well but it's actually quite lose. You can find a tutorial here.

    Ouch! That sucks! Sorry

    Watch out for this! For a long time I was putting my hair up in a twisted bun a lot and then pinning it with a hair stick or big hair pin. It worked well and stayed up great - but it would always be tight in the front.

    At first I liked this because it seemed to make me look younger (lol). But then I noticed that it was putting stress on certain hairs over and over and I noticed some of them coming out when I would take my bun down.

    Now I can see that this area has thinned slightly from my years of doing this and I have started making sure that my buns are loose and don't put stress on hairs anywhere. Now I'm seeing baby hairs growing in the thinning spot and this makes me feel better.

    Be careful of too tight buns or up-dos!

    Yea, my hair is short enough that making them loose is really hard! Plus my hair was wet which makes it even more impossible to get it up loosely!

    Oh yes that does make everything super tight no matter how lose you try to make it. I would do a search on loose buns for APL length. I'm always looking for interesting buns to throw mine up in

    Try not to get too obsessed with shed hair. Things happen.

    It looks like my hair is wayyy too short of a knot bun, unfortunately. It's also really thick, that doesn't help at all either.

    Haha no problem! I was using that one a lot before I got my fork. All I had were hair chopsticks so I didn't need a new bun. When I got my fork I had to find a new bun to do. Now I like to look for whatever I can find. I use Torrin's Minotaur Bun to hold my Glass Jellyfish stick because my hair is too slick to hold it without a pony base and bobbies.

    Perhaps you could try this to get away from the tight hair situation:
