This ponytail would be great for women who are natural, stretching or transitioning out of a relaxer.
It has 2 combs. One in the front and one in the back. It has a drawstring, but no toggle. What's up with that?
It would be better to purchase this item in person so you could peruse the stock to get the unit with the most defined curl pattern.
Number 2 without the hairnet
Number 4 with the hairnet
This is my second time purchasing this ponytail.
The nature of curly synthetic hair is to get tangled very quickly.
I purchased this from my local ethnic beauty supply store ($15.99).
They have an ongoing special, buy 1 get 1 50% off. I love a bargain! I got one for myself and one for my daughter. I will be rocking this during the month of July as I have joined a protective styling challenge (bunning) until early August. I searched the internet for sellers of this ponytail. The prices were $20 and up.
If you want a more tame and pulled together look you could use a hairnet. If you want the curls to be free, wear this loose. I do not recommend over handling the curls. The nature of this hair is to frizz when over handled. Lightly shape it if needed. This is some BIG hair! It has a tendency to swell. If you love that, then this is the hair for you.
I suggest storing this in the original packaging to preserve as defined curls as possible. I would not recommend applying any products to this hair.
Despite LOVING this hair (Yes, I will buy this again!)
I give this ponytail 3 out of 5 stars. It is challenging to get the ponytail to look like the model without ruining it. I do love the volume and the curl pattern. However, they really need to add a toggle to the drawstring.
