    My flexi 8 arrived already. The XL is a bit big, but it works. I have the feeling I'll be buying a bunch of these.

    I got boring ones with no color, but next time I'm going to get some that are a bit more showy.

    Here are the 2 I have.

    I'm having fun bunning with my flexi8
    But I'm having a hard time getting my ends in the clip. Until my hair gets longer, I'll just use bobby pins to hold the ends up.

    Sorry, just seeing this. I tie it up at night with my satin scarf, sleep in a satin pillow case and only smooth any edges that may be unruly in the morning. Since the bun is closer to the top of my head, it doesn't bother me while I am sleeping.

    Took down my topknot that I had secured with spin pins and did something looser.

    Exactly what I do. I can make my bun last a week this way, taking it down once a week to detangle and cleanse/condition, then bunning again once my hair has air dried. Just a little water and edge smoother on an old toothbrush I use for my edges, and tie it down to make it "set" when I am many weeks post relaxer. Take off the scarf after about 15 mins and I'm good to go. My grandma does the same thing (she is natural and waist length, all silver hair).

    I love my flexi8 buns, but my hair stays more moisturized when I wear it this way.

    GettingKinky, cute! How did you do this style again? I'm sure you've already explained it. My hair stays moisturized better when it's braided or twisted together in a style. It becomes self moisturizing in some way. My hair doesn't do this when wearing other styles like buns or updos.

    divachyk-

    It's really simple.
    -Part you hair down the middle
    - make a ponytail on each side
    -twist each ponytail
    -pin the end left ponytail up on the right side
    - pin the end right ponytail up on the left side
    - add more bobby pins in the muddle if necessary to keep everything from drooping

    Between this style and sleeping in 2 braids my hair stays moisturized the whole week between wash days.

    I'm trying to keep my buns made from twists so my hair stays moisturized. But I wanted to use my flexi8 for decoration. So I used a rubberband to make a ponytail and then made two twists and pinned them up. Then I put the flexi8 over the rubberband.

    This may be my go to bun for awhile if it stays moisturized.

    I debuted this style on my blog today. Basically, flat twists in front, french braid in the back, pin it all down. Done.

    That's beautiful!! divachyk

    I don't think I'm skilled enough to it. I'm bad at flat twists and french braids.
