What is the top trending style?

You are mistaken if you think ponytails are just typical and boring hairdos made by pulling and tying hair for times when you are exercising or not happy with your hair. Today’s ponytails are one of the most preferred styles for a sexy and trendy look, making it a convenient, fashionable and versatile fashion item. Some African American women give up on ponytail for their natural hair texture, but they can have a natural ponytail hairdo as long as they know how-to.

Make a natural and healthy ponytail

Prepare a spray bottle filled with water, a wide comb, a hair brush, and styling gel. Mist water on hair and carefully brush the wet hair. After tying the hair, spray on the rest of the hair. Loosen tangled hair bottom up with a wide tooth comb.

Lastly, fix the hair using styling gel. If gel feels overly hard, add jojoba oil, argan oil or olive oil to styling gel to prevent it from hardening and for hydration.

Tightly hold the hair with a scarf, leave it to dry for about fifteen to twenty minutes to complete a neat ponytail style. For a final touch, you can add a layer of gloss-finish hair spray to bring out the texture. You can complete with a desired ponytail extension.
