Let’s see how to do it at home.

Steps to take a quick weave ponytail at home
Now, it is time to start a hairdo.
Step 1: Detangle and moisturize your hair
It is better to use your hand to detangle your hair gently, then use wide teeth comb to make it smoother. If you try to use a normal comb and detangle by using so much impact to your hair, it causes hair loss and hair breakage. Your hair is your crown, so you should treat it like your treasure.
As other hairdo process, wearing weave ponytail also cause damages to our hair. Your natural hair cannot “breath” while we have this hairstyle. Therefore, we need to moisturize deeply inside so as not to get hair breakages. Applying enough amount of hair moisturizer is necessary, but not too much or your hair will get wet.
Step 2: Lay your hair down
You absolutely don’t want a messy hairstyle, right?
Non-alcohol hair gel will be your hero. It lays your hair perfectly. Unlike other gels, non-alcohol gel don’t make your hair look matte but silky and smooth. As we all know, alcohol anhydrates our hair which results in dry hair and split ends. Therefore, you need to be careful when buying hair products, read ingredients and cautions clearly.
Next, use bands/scrunchies to tie your hair. Depending on your wish, you can make a high ponytail or low ponytail. Thus, you can tie your hair up or down, but don’t forget to add some more moisturizer before braid them. If your hair end is a little long, you can braid them so it is easier to wrap a plastic bag/ fabric around your hair. You have to make sure your natural ponytail is covered absolutely or you will get trouble with glue.
Step 3: Install a weave ponytail
It will be better if you have someone help you in this step. If you make it by yourself, do it slowly.
Normally, a weave is about more than 1 meter in width, so you need to cut it into small sections from 15 – 20 cm (equivalent to 6” – 8”) for easier application. When you roll the weaves around your ponytail, they can get tangle like a mess, so you should stretch them on a table and make it tangle-free.
You pour glue to the fabric from the end to the root. If your ponytail is long, divide them into 2 or 3 parts to glue it. Next, roll the weave hair extensions around your ponytail, starting at the end to the top. In hairdo process, you can add more glue to fix it for long last ponytail.
At the end of making a weave ponytail, you should take a hair strand, apply non-alcohol gel and roll it around your ponytail’s root to hide the bondage of the weave and make it seamless.
Now, a quick weave ponytail is done!

Tip 1: Choose natural hair weaves
All of us know that there are many bad hair products in market. They are synthetic fibers, hair mix with synthetic fibers, animal fur, processed hair, etc. These types look unnatural and get tangle easily.

That is the reason why you need to find out a reliable hair vendor such as Luxshinehair to buy weaves.
Tip 2: Wash your hair weave with conditioner before applying a ponytail
