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.
So, the next time you find yourself in a funk and are feeling the need for a change, don't automatically shop for new clothes, furniture or electronic toys. Think about the offbeat celebrity hairstyles and their personal style. Think about your personal style, think about your hair. A new funky and fun hairstyle may be just what you need to get yourself back on the right track again.
