Someone shared in the long "Random Hair Thought/Thinking" thread a video of hair banding via elastic ribbon, like the kind I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I love that method! It's basically a chunky African threading. It's much better than creating circular bands with the ribbon. This way, you just band your hair and create a little tie /knot at the end. I also tried detangling via a flicking method, as discussed in that same thread (a poster said her Devachan stylist says it's better, and that the Wet Brush is damaging). I posted about it in the Detangling Collective Wisdom thread. Photos of hair lost are below. Photos enlarge upon click. ETA: Whoah, my short fingers look long in that pic! Lol!
