I can’t believe it’s summertime already! I love my wigs but it’s too hot to wear one today. I actually do have hair so I need a quick hairstyle to put my natural hair in within a couple of minutes. My hair supplies and product are also limited.
To work with I have: Water, Edge Gel, Headband, Hair Clip, Edge Brush, Cantu Argan Oil Leave In Conditioning Cream and a Shoestring.
I’m going to put some leave in conditioning cream and some water in my hair before I style it to give it some moisture.
After my natural hair is moisturized lightly I can now style. I take the shoestring and tie it around my hair and pull until I get the desired ponytail I like. Stop pulling and wrap the rest of the shoestring around the base of the ponytail until its hidden.
Finally I will add some edge gel to my edges for a more sleek ponytail look. If your hair is puffy like mines I use a headband before I do the baby hair so the front of my hair lays down better.
It took no more than 10 minutes to get this ponytail. I prefer to wear my ponytail on the very top of my head. You can switch this up and do a back ponytail or two ponytails. There are many variations to this hairstyle.
Here is a YouTube video I did with this style and a couple other natural go to hair styles on natural hair.
Natural hair is so versatile. you can do many styles with your own natural hair at any length. The only reason I have hair is the knowledge I got from all of the natural hair You Tubers from the early 2000’s that is how I learned about how to take care of my natural hair. Don’t make it a chore have fun with it and make sure to take some pictures to show it off!
