Suit Your Hair Type: Your hairstyle must not only suit your face but also suit your type of hair. For example, a regular hairstyle might not work out well with curly hair. Similarly, different densities of hair might also suit different hairstyles.
If your hair is dry and you have not conditioned it then you are running the risk for splitting the ends. So to begin with, make sure that you shampoo well and use a conditioner unless of course your hair is oily. Towel dry it as there is no need to blow_dry your hair for the ponytail look. You might want to add a little bit of gel to give it a nice shiny look and to help keep those flyaway hairs under control.
