Buns Are Breaking Off My Natural Hair

Buns and puffs are quick and cute. They can be worn dancing the night away Friday night and then back in the office setting Monday morning. Most importantly, buns are a great protective style, keeping your hair off of your clothing and ends tucked away.

It was too much pulling and strain on my strands.
