I'm Free! Free at Last. yes.. I finished my finals and moved back home from the dorms yesterday. lots of hard work, but now I have a summer to get back to life. So far.. I've gotten the grade for one class, which was an A. So hard work does pay off! Hopefully it will with my hair also.

My hair's grown nice and long..sorta "V" like int he back, longest strands hitting waist length, but.. they'll disappear when i trim it so its healthy.

I've got a major hair dilemna. My hair's midback length, naturally tends to curl, frizz in humidity, and rather thick and heavy. This upcoming weekend (memorial day weekend) I'm a FIFA referee and will be out running the soccer fields all day long, as most soccer fanatics know -memorial day weekend is a big soccer tournament weekend.

I'm going to outside, in hot and humid weather with the sun frying my hair all day long (9am - 8pm). Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can protect my hair and scalp? Or better yet a hairstyle to effectively keep all this hair off my neck and back, out of the way, that will hold well despite me running around all day, effectively all sweaty?

I'm open to ideas, because even putting it in a ponytail, makes it too long any more, and buns for too long put too much weight in one spot and give me a headache.

Open to suggestions.. please!

Hi!
I would suggest you braid or two braids (classic, duch, french anything,..). There are very nice picutres of braids in the Styling gallery (I am not sure how is it called),.. Whenever I travel or something the best way to protect my hair is in braids. You could also be more imaginative and make two braids or even more, it looks cool also,..
I think this is the best way to protect your hair and to move it out of the way,..
Have fun,..
Ciao,
Tanja

Since a bun feels weighted down low, try French braiding your hair upside down. Start at the nape of your neck and work your way up to your front crown. When you've added all the sections in, braid to the ends and wrap the ends into a bun on your crown.

You could also braid your hair and just coil the ends into a bun. It should make the bun a bit lighter since you are weaving some of the weight throughout the head.

You can also do a French Twist, leaving the ends out (don't make the U and tuck ends under. Just secure the twisted hair, then wrap ends into a bun) and turn them into a bun. I like this style a lot and use a hair slide to secure the center really well.

Sectioned pony tails work too, although it doesnt get your hair up off your neck. Part your hair from ear to ear, going up and over the head (Thumbs facing up placed right in front of your ears, then brought straight up until thumbs touch). Put that section into a band (I normally use scrunchies or my cut up support hose).

Now section hair from ear to ear going around the back of the head. (Thumbs facing back of head just above ears, going around back until they meet) Place this section, which will have the tail of the other in it, in a band.

Make the next band at the nape of the neck. You can continue banding the tail of hair as well until a few inches before the end. It gives an elongated look, and keeps hair under control. You can lightly oil your tail or use some Shea Butter. Shea has a SPF of 3 I think... not much, but a little protection.

You can also look for SPF sprays which can be used on hair. There are some products specifically used for sun protection. Check your local salons or beauty supply places.

Hope this helps!
