How To Create A Beautiful Ponytail While Working With Ethnic Curly Hair

By Jensyn Warren

Hello all Cashmere Hair viewers! I want to take a moment to introduce myself to you all! My goal is to utilize this blog post platform to tell you a bit about myself, and my hair journey as a young African American woman. Don't miss out on taking advantage of the useful Cashmere Hair tips I will be sharing today for curly hair! I have plenty more blog posts to come!

My Curly Hair Story

To start, my name is Jensyn Warren, I am twenty-two years old, and from Calabasas, California. Growing up in a city such as Calabasas, that is predominantly white, I struggled with wanting my hair to look like all the other girls'. I wanted my hair to look like my friends', which was straight, long, and luscious. I wanted this so badly, but it was almost impossible to achieve with the big, curly hair that I was born with.

After begging my parents to allow me to get a relaxer to calm down my curly head of hair, they finally gave in. From then on, I got all different types of relaxers, perms, and treatments done to my hair. You name it, I had it!

Hair Damage

I had these all throughout middle school and into high school in aims to attain the look that I wanted. Having done all these treatments, it was no surprise that my hair became brittle, thin, and entirely damaged. Having to live with such damaged hair lowered my self-confidence. It left me feeling like even more of an outcast amongst my peers in my community.

So what now?

These treatments that I had relentlessly begged my parents for, really only made matters worse. I knew I had to do something about it. I was sick and tired of the damage, and wanted to put away the detrimental products. While wanting to get rid of these harmful products that were killing my hair, I still ached to have a long, straighter, and voluminous hairstyle. I needed to find a way protect my curly hair, while still achieving the look I wanted. This is when I began to discover hair extensions, which absolutely changed my life.

First Purchase of Cashmere Hair Wrap Ponytail

In my late teens, I was lucky enough to stumble upon Cashmere Hair. Not only was I blown away by the quality of their clip-in hair extensions, but it was their wrap ponytail that really changed a lot for me. The quality of the hair and how simple the installation was, is what got me hooked from the very start. I wear it almost religiously now! The wrap ponytail gave me a way to achieve a long, straight ponytail, while simultaneously protecting my natural hair.

Cashmere Hair's Wrap Ponytail Saved Me

I was finally able to do all of this while using absolutely no heat at all! This changed my life and has helped my curly hair to become healthier and grow stronger, just as an added bonus!

As I've explained, I have experienced first-hand what over-usage of heat tools and chemicals has on your hair. For that very reason, most days I am not wanting to straighten it, nor do I have the time to do so. My simple answer to this dilemma, is wearing my Cashmere Hair Wrap Ponytail. Although, the ponytail is a straight texture and my hair is entirely the opposite, I have a technique that works wonders.

I will be showing you how I slick back my natural hair with my Cantu leave-in conditioner, to blend nicely with the Cashmere Hair ponytail texture. I achieve a ponytail look on an everyday basis, that is almost effortless and looks extremely natural. My natural hair is entirely protected in this style. I simply use elastic hair ties to put my hair up into a braid!

No heat is used, it's pulled back, and it's hidden from any elements that can damage it. It's not only stylish, but it serves as an incredible protective style, which is just icing on top of the cake!

What I Hope You Take Away From This Post

I want you all to see that this wrap ponytail can be worn with many different hair types and textures. Wearing this ponytail has drifted me away from the everyday use of heat tools. To add, avoiding these tools has helped me to embrace my curly hair. I've realized that I can achieve the versatile looks I want, while working with and protecting my beautiful natural curls!
