    That is cute. I love curly pony tails. Why don't you challenge yourself to try a new style?

    Lol I don't have the will power.

    I'm a recovering heat addict. :lol:
    The more I play in my hair. . . the more I'll be tempted straighten it.

    Its best I get it back out of the way as quickly as possible. :look::lol:

    But over time, I'll definitely come back and test some things out!

    I hear ya girl. :giggle:

    Just be sure to move the base of your bun / curly ponytail around so it doesn't cause too much stress in the same spot over and over.

    K. I'll give in lol.

    I'm wearing a phony pony puff in the pic but I also rock plaits/twists under wigs. :yep: I try not to handle my hair so much, especially since I have PCOS.


    EDTA: I'm wearing Effy. She works higher up and lower on the head. :yep:

    winona Effy is a big one lol, but not as bad as the picture from the site. She's a bit older now but still wears well. I had to experiment with the placement to get her to a place where I feel comfortable. When I was relaxed I would wear the phonytail on the top of my head. Now that I'm natural I wear it alot lower. :yep: In the pic posted previously I had her on at the back of the head, a few inches above the nape.

    Keep in mind that you could always trim her down. :yep: I'm actually on the hunt for different styles. It's a quick and convenient style when you're on the go. :yep: And there are several ways that she can be dressed up or down. (Think hair candy... bows, scarves, barrettes, flowers, etc. )

    Here are a few more pics to gauge the size. I had her styled in the first two pics but it was a "windows down" kind of day lol.

    Allandra How do you keep your twist updo so neat? Once I sleep on mine it is OVA! I have to do it over again lol. The twists start to puff up in various places and it doesn't look right. *sigh* (Thanks for starting this thread. I look forward to seeing what the ladies have to add!)

    I like your flat-twist style, Allandra
    I really need to practice flat-twisting. Mine don't look neat.

    Here are just a few of the protective styles I wear regularly - mostly buns. My hair does fine with daily re-styling. The only time I wear a bun for two days is when my hair is in it's curly state. After two days, I co-wash and restyle. Most of these pics are with blowdried or flatironed hair because when my hair is curly I only wear a messy bun. I have pictures of another 30 or so in my profile albums.

    I just tie it down with my scarf once I get in from work. I get up early in the morning (Monday through Friday), and I refuse to wrestle with my hair that early in the morning. :lol:

    Allandra - I have been debating on if I want to wear my hair like urs and I think im going to do it this weekend. I haven't yet decided on if I want to flat twist or braid. the only problem I have, well this is a major problem. Mt hair isn't long like all of the pictures in this thread, lol. My hair is thick as heck but only comes to my collar bone now, lol.
