Dry hair

Towel-dry your hair first to remove excess water. When it is about 80 percent dry, blow-dry it while brushing to create more volume to your braid ponytail.

Create a ponytail

Once it is completely dry, brush your hair to untangle the strands. Then, put it up in a high ponytail and tie with an elastic.

Take a small section of hair and wrap it around the elastic to keep it distinct. Secure with a bobby pin.

Create three equal sections of hair to make your braid. Then, spritz with TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray on these sections to tame the frizz and help make your braided ponytail last longer.

Braid your hair

Start braiding your hair by crossing the left section over the middle section and the right section over the new middle section. Keep doing this until you completely braid your hair and tie the tips with an elastic.
