When I'm taking a break from extensions I do my own blow outs.
I love the results, but no matter how careful you are, if you have natural hair blow outs don't stay perfect forever. That got me thinking about ways I could stretch my straight hair past 10 days without doing major damage.
Enter... the ponytail!
I picked up these two from Amazon and they have been lifesavers! I was skeptical when I ordered them but they are holding up well and each one is under $15!
The curly ponytail needed a few sprays of dry shampoo to take out the Barbie hair shine. It does tangle a bit during wear, but it's not unmanageable.
The kinky straight ponytail is my favorite! I have minimal tangling and shedding with that one.
Both are easy to install - just put your hair in a ponytail, stick the comb in, wrap the attached velcro strap around, and wrap a strand of hair around to conceal the velcro.
I take the ponytail out at night and put a scarf on to keep my hair in place. I can usually get two to three days out of this style.
