As an African lady who is proud of the curly nature that comes with black hair, I avoid ponytail hairstyle. This hairstyle normally do not last for more than two weeks. (Most stylist pre-inform you so you know that you can’t wear it for so long- more like a disclaimer that comes with the hairstyle.). Aside the fact that it doesn’t last, it is fast and affordable to make. i.e. if the hair extension is not so pricey. Last Month, I made my hair from Demoire brand. She needed a model for hair and gets to keep it. (Who am I to pass off such offer) . Also her work is always epic from my last experience working with her. It was in collaboration with Ajike Makeover for a bridal look. I was floored with their work. So a yes was in line. I love the hair. Here is one of the easy natural hair styles and how to maintain it for one month.
Demoire brand is an hair stylist, wig maker and seller of the loveliest falsies. For her brand promotion, she used me as model and made a lovely ponytail on my hair. I was wowed as usual by her expertise as I was on an un-relaxed hair at the time. She was able to get whatever look she wanted with my hair. She also gave guidance on how to maintain it to last as at least two weeks. This is something you don’t get from most stylist. (How will they make more sales if your hair last long?. Chai.)
How I maintained my ponytail?
Surprising my ponytail hairstyle lasted over a month. This because of the directions of maintenance give by Demoire. (Well I did something slightly different). The method of I used for rocking my ponytail for a month are as follows
- For night time or bed time, Wrap your ponytail hairstyle with a scarf to hold it. This helps the gel stay for fresh each day
- Fill a spray bottle with water at the end of the week and sprinkle on hair. Then tied a scarf over for it for about 5 minutes. It gives the hair a refreshing look
- Or you get a spray gel from your local store. I bought mine for about 600 naira at Oshodi Market. You can use a spray gel if don’t have an empty spray bottle. Repeat the process like step two
- Cream the attached hair extensions often so as to maintain its glow
