How can I maintain my drawstring ponytail? 

It is true that your ponytail can be worn for a long period, so there is a need for proper care and storage. You can care for the extension by shampooing and conditioning in a similar fashion to your hair.

It is often advised that you put off your ponytail at night. Although, you may choose to leave it on your head but with caution. If you need to go to bed with your extension on you, then you need to gently wrap it in a bun and wear your bonnet. 

Again, if you have to put it aside for a while without using it, you should seriously consider putting it away from moist areas because moisture is a recipe for quick damage.

How can I have a natural look with my drawstring ponytail?

For you to get the desired natural look, you should choose a drawstring ponytail that is similar to the texture of your hair. With that, you do not have to go through the stress of trying to get a blend of your hair with the extension. It has also been shown that if your natural hair is firmly placed in a bun before mounting the extension, it will give an amazingly natural look. 

In addition to creating the naturally sleek ponytail look, it is important to properly hydrate your natural hair as well as the extension. Adequate moisturizing (including proper detangling) of your hair and ponytail will give it a shimmer, giving you the look you truly desire.


If you are searching for a hairpiece that will not go out of style, then you are absolutely correct for mentioning a drawstring ponytail! Choose any of the above styles for an elegant and gracious look.
