My ponytail is now a bit too long to qualify as a protective style. My ends now rub against the nape of my neck, so this has been my go to style for the last few days, a simple tucked under ponytail.
Sidenote: I only use scunci no slip elastics on my hair. They're rubbery and give good grip yet slip out easily enough when I need them to. They don't pull my hair out and my hair doesn't get caught up in them. Unlike Goody's ouchless and all those other brands I've tried, these actually work.
