Bunned Up....6:16 PM
When you get bored with your hair or just don't feel like fooling with it...the bun and/or low pony can be your best friend! Last night, after deep conditioning (I used Hair Rules Quench Conditioner) and detangling, I decided to bun it up. My original plan was to throw in some twists, but it was getting late and my arms were already tired from finger combing so a bun was the quickest thing.
In the shower under running water, I began gathering my hair towards the back with my hands and using the edge of my Denman brush to smooth down the top. I then applied a small amount of Cantu Shea Butter Leave In through my hair and the ends...not too much though, Cantu can be a bit heavy so a little goes a long way. I then smoothed Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic Moisturizing Hair Jelly (which I found collecting dust in my cabinet) to the top and edges. It doesn't give the strongest hold, but it does enough...especially since it was the only gel like thing I had in my stash lol! After a little more smoothing with my Denman and then with a soft bristle brush, I secured it with a hair tie.
I could have left it at that, but it was late and I didn't want my wet pony soaking up my pillow....so a bun was the next option. I divided the pony into halves and created 2 braids, wrapped them around the base of the pony and secured with bobby pins. In the end....a simple and neat bun was made :)
