Goody Bun Spiral=One Big Ol' Spin Pin

So it's Saturday and I haven't done much of anything all day. I have been playing in my hair though. Well, playing isn't the word...I've been doing "search and destroys." I noticed a lot of single strand knots (ssks) and splits in my hair and them suckers had to go! Now, my hair is in a Kourtney Kardashian inspired bun (and I'm gonna keep it bunned b/c lawdhammercy I have to lay off the heat!). Anyway, that's not important. What is important is this new gadget I bought about an hour ago- the Goody Bun Spiral. The bun spiral has been out for awhile and I've had my eye on it for awhile but just never purchased it until now.

The Goody Bun Spiral cost me $5.99+tax at Walgreens (side note: I actually was able to purchase 2 different Goody gadgets for $8.98 since there is a sale going on). Like the spin pins, the bun spiral comes in 2 colors: light and dark (of course I purchased dark). What I like about the spril is that it is super duper easy to use! All you have to do is gather your hair into a ponytail, secure it or not secure it with a ponytail holder (according to the package you don't need a ponytail holder but I guess it depends on how sleek you want your bun.), twist your hair into a bun, place the bun spiral onto your bun(make sure your hair goes through the opening), and twist the spiral clockwise to secure. That's it! I kinda like it so far. My bun is definitely secure and there isn't a chance of two spirals latching together and getting tangled in your hair---don't ask me how I know.

All in all, I say definitely pick this spiral up-especially if you bun a lot!


  1. I've been eyeing this item for a minute....can you post a picture of how it looks? I honestly cannot picture it, I can't tell if I have enough hair to use it.

  2. @EbonyCPrincess I sure can! Just give me until the weekend. If it helps any, I have to say that I had to struggle to get my bun into that spiral. I simply had too much hair to fit into it (and my hair is APL/BSLish). I think ladies w/ shorter lengths might benefit more from it just because it'll be easier for them to get their hair into it. For ladies with longer lengths, I would recommend the spin pins. I hope that helps some! :)

  3. hi,

    i cannot get it to cling to my scalp.


  4. The bun spiral isn't supposed to cling to your scalp. You form your bun, place the spiral around the bun, then twist the spiral clockwise(until you feel the spiral touch your scalp) so you can secure the bun.

    Hope this helps some!

  5. ok. so i need bobby pins, then? b/c my hair just kind of "droops"...

    i think i watched your video btw. if it's the 1 i saw, it needs captions or something. it's hard to hear.
