With three girls I figure Ihave most likely pulled someones hair into a pony tail at least 5000 times.

What is it with my girls and"bumps?" Bump on their scalp before the pony tails!!It takes 5-6 attempt before I manage to get one that is bump free!!!

I thought my two oldest girls were bad until #3 came along. EVERYTIME I braid or pull her hair up she freaks and complains, loudly I might add, " No, I have a bump"

I know this seems silly and it is. I am just wondering if my girls are the only ones with this crazy"bump"issue!!

Anyone???

Hi Granolamom...no you are not alone. I have one daughter, and at almost 16 i still help with her hair ocassionally, and yes, she gets upset about the dreaded "bump". i have spent more money on brushes, hoping to find the perfect one to do her hair bump free.

i am still looking!

For my own hair in order to get it BUMP FREE, I brush it out really well, then I use my hands only to tie it up - works like a CHARM on my head, but I'm not sure how well it would work on the soft little girl hair.......
Give it a try......

I'm 28 and still can't figure out how to keep my hair 100% bump free! My hair is super-fine, and I have had the most success with a round vented brush, though.

My best friend has obsessed about ponytail bumps since we were in preschool. I always found it a bit strange that we'd be going to play soccer and she'd take an hour to put her hair in the perfect ponytail! She still constantly asks, "Is it bumpy?"

I'm a bump freak too! If I put my hair up I can't STAND any bumps... But my hair is very very thick, so I have to brush it to get all the bumps out. But thin combs really help, just pulling those thru my hair over the bump... and if its a big bump, using a bobby pin to push the loose hair in close to where the pony tail comes together can sometimes fix it too...

Hehehe, I discovered that when I get lumps, I just brush the hair towards the ponytail holder and then the bumps stay there, then I flip the pony up in a clip or a big barette which covers both the lumps and the rubber band. I feel soooo sneaky! I used to have to have perfect ponytails when I was in HS.

Another idea:
My sister would let her daughter lie on the bed with her head almost off the side, and then brush and tie it up like that....

Rain used to call bumps "pluffs", and she would not tolerate any of 'em. She has really fine-textured but really thick hair, and it pluffed a lot.
