The Secret to a perfectly combed and shiny ponytail: a toothbrush!

Let me reveal two great secrets.

 Secret No. 1: Long hair is easier to maintain than short hair! 

Secret No. 2: Shiny, healthy hair swept into a sleek ponytail is an incredibly sophisticated and professional look.
Now, most of us do not have a live-in hair stylist, so here is everything you need to know to ensure that your pony tail or any “brushed from your face“ hairstyle always looks neat and polished. 

All you need are two items: a toothbrush and a can of hairspray!

First, brush your hair thoroughly and treat your hair while you are brushing it with a styling product such as Natural Formula or Moroccanoil. Brush your hair into the style you wish .  I recommend a pony tail, especially a pony tail that is gathered approximately on level with the tops of your ears (this is also a great way to ensure that the pony tail is positioned evenly on your head).

Once you have brushed and gathered all your hair and hold it in place with a hair band.  Don’t worry about the short hairs around your face, baby hairs or fly away hairs; that’s where the toothbrush and hairspray come in handy!

Now spray a shpritz of hairspray on a clean toothbrush.  Gently brush the top layer of your hair – in straight long strokes, in the direction of your hair growth – from the root to the beginning of the pony tail.  Add a new shpritz of hairspray to each toothbrush stroke, until you have tamed all the short and fly away hairs around your head.

If you have longer hairs around the “payot” area in front of your ears, you may need to shpritz a bit of hairspray directly on this area and then brush up the hairs with your toothbrush.  Gently hold the toothbrush to this section of hair for a few seconds to ensure the hairspray "takes".

If you are wearing an updo style or high ponytail, don’t forget to use your toothbrush and hairspray on the hairs at the nape of your neck, as well.

You can then finish off and set your style with a quick light spritz of hairspray all around your head before you run out the door to your day!

Remember to keep this toothbrush with your hairspray, so it is always "at your finger tips" when you need it!
