Step 1: With clean hair, moisturise and detangle your locks

First, you need to brush your hair. Moisturiseyour hair before brushing keeps it hydrated and smooth. It also detangles your hair and prevents breakage and makes brushing easier. If you have natural hair, then this step is essential to perform. 

Step 2: Part your hair and decide the placement of your ponytail

You can wear your ponytail up or down, depending on how you want it. Ifyou part your hair, make sure to keep it as straight as possible. Use a fine-tooth comb for the same. 

Step 3: Lay your foundation by placing your natural hair in a sleek ponytail

Brush your hair and make it into a ponytail using the scrunchies. Apply a generous amount of styling gel to your hair and smoothen your natural hair into a ponytail. Once your ponytail is gelled down, tuck it into a chignon. 

Step 4: Lay the weave on a flat surface and double the weft of your hair

Fold the weave in half. Go with a high ponytail with bundles. However, if you want it to have more volume, repeat this step with additional weave or hair. 

Step 5: Secure it with bobby pins

Keep your hair in the right place using bobby pins. If you’re doing a ponytail with the bundles’method, secure the wefts to the end. Two bobby pins should be enough to get the job done.
