Remember to forget me!
Yeah, mine will stay braided on its own for a while too, but I've got in the habit of putting a band on. Maybe I should try without, and see just how long it stays that way.When mine was longer I would sometimes have to try to fit it into a beard net if I was working in a food process plant a braid was the only way it would even come close. Sometimes I would braid it quick if using power tools or working around motors and belts. I didn't even need to put a rubber band on it the curls would hold it together for a couple hours.
