How to Create a French Braid into Sleek Ponytail
Prep your hair
Make your hair smooth and manageable for your hairstyle by washing it with DOVE Straight and Silky Shampoo and DOVE Straight and Silky Conditioner. It has Micro Moisture Serum that fights frizz so that you can rock any sleek hairstyle you like.
Make it shine
Give your hair smoothness and shine by spraying on TONI&GUY Finishing Shine Spray and spreading it evenly on your hair to avoid blotching.
To create a French braid, take a section of hair on top of your head. Then, divide it into three smaller sections. Cross the left section over the middle section, then the right over the middle section. Add more sections of hair as you progress through your braid.
Continue making your French braid until it reaches your nape area. Then, tie it with an elastic.
Hide your elastic
Make your hair look more kept by taking a small section of hair from your ponytail to cover the elastic. Secure this with a bobby pin. Then, smoothen out the ponytail to remove tangles.
Complete your French braid into sleek ponytail by spritzing TONI&GUY Finishing Shine Spray after styling. This helps you achieve a beautiful and sleek look.
