I know how to make it work on a budget, and not everyone can afford expensive hair. You can still be fabulous on a budget. All of the ponytails hairstyles in the pictures is the same hair. Synthetic hair can be last up to 6 months or more with the proper maintenance. Do not use any alcohol products, wash the hair with organic soaps, and let it hair dry. If you going to flat-iron the hair, use heat protector spray that contains no alcohol. I replenish the hair by washing it, curl it with flex rod curls (roll the hair while it’s still wet), and let it air dry overnight. Remove curlers, spray it will oil sheen, and put it in a zip locker bag until you ready to wear it. I also have video on restoring synthetic wig using the hot water method.
