    So, my hair is long enough that I started wearing it in a ponytail. I use a rubberband to hold it since scrunchies are too slippery. Some of the hair is still short enough that is easily slips out, especially when the wind is blowing, I'm running, or moving.

    So I am thinking as it gets longer, I'll braid my ponytail, or should I do two braids? What style? My daughter suggested a French braid (http://www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip255.htm). :rolleyes:

    However, I thinking a basic three strand braid. :biggrin:

    But I might consider a plait.

    Maybe down the road, I'll donate it to "Locks of Love" (http://www.locksoflove.org/).

    I went with 'what are you talking about' because it's obvious that the only proper approach is to bundle it into a chunk of shrink tubing.

    yes give it a braid, I'd stick to the three strand. And buy the hair bands that don't damage your hair. A pack of 20 for about 3 dollars, they come in small sizes too.

    Real men wear french braids.

    P.S. Astronuc, I fixed your links, hope you don't mind.

    I voted against braiding. That just doesn't seem right for a guy (and especially not a French braid! :eek:)

    Does locks of love accept gray ponytails? :biggrin:

    Last time I checked, yes.

    Thanks. I guess the thread creation process boogered them up.


    I don't like the French braid. I have to grow the hair longer for a good braid. Right now it's curly and the bangs are still a bit short. Hopefully by the end of the year.


    Well, I suppose they could die the hair. :rolleyes:


    That too has been suggested.

    Maybe I'll get my ear re-pierced. :rofl: :cool:

    A little more work and I'll look like Jack Sparrow. :uhh:

    I have heard that putting your hair in a pony tail puts too much tension on your hair near the forehead. It will cause it to fall out faster. I don't know if its true or not though.

    That would have been possible 25 years ago when my hair was much denser. I think I had parts of it braided with mini-braids (like those of Bo Derek) :rolleyes: - some girls I knew just wanted to have fun (with the hair). o:)

    :rofl: Well, I once considered a scalp-lock like the Cossacks (see Yul Bryner in the movie Taras Bulba).

    I have a natural aversion to shaving. I haven't shaved in more than 25 years. :biggrin:

    The first thing that comes to mind is "Why?". To people look at you and point when you are on outside? :uhh:
