So many times, I put my hair up in a bun , I braid it, or put those tight elastic bands around the ends, and sometimes it looks good and other times it breaks my hair. My advice to you is to just let it go, and let it be free. You cans till dress up your hair and put (hair clips, headbands, etc.) in it, but you could even just dress it up with a pair of sunglasses or a butterfly clip. However, for the the active and busy curlie’s out there you can definitely put your hair back if you’re rushing or going for a run (no worries!) Just do a half up half down!
