Step 2 Gather hair into a side ponytail and secure with a clear elastic. Pull hair from the middle of the ponytail to keep your roots lifted.
Step 3: Smooth amika Oil Treatment into your ponytail, working through to the ends. Braid your ponytail and secure with a clear elastic, then lightly pull apart the braids to add volume.
