Is anyone else going through the growing out phase? I'm currently letting my hair grow out. I've been cutting it for the past three years and I finally decided to just "see how big my fro can get!" I'm kind of over it already, but I've committed to it so you know how that goes. I have super thick hair and sometimes I just don't want to deal with it at all. Well if you read that last sentence and said "yes girl, yes" then keep reading because I have a super cute (and easy) smooth style for natural or even related hair women on the go, featuring Cantu Beauty and Big Chop Hair!

Step two: Remember, I have super thick tightly coiled hair so the next step will be to blow the hair out so that it's stretched. I made sure to use a heat protectant and mild heat when completing this step.
Step three: Moisturize! Make sure you moisturize your hair before pulling it back into your ponytail. I decided to go with Cantu's Smoothing Leave-In Conditioning Lotion.
Step four: Smooth with conditioner, add your edge control (Cantu's Edge Stay Gel is LIFE) and then brush. Use your brush to get hair into a comfortable ponytail then tie a scarf around the hair to set the ponytail and lay down.
Step five: Now it's time to add your hair. I used my Corkscrew Curl Big Chop Hair clip-ins and wrapped them around my already secured ponytail with about five bobbypins. All you need is about four clip-ins to make a full pony.
This is THE perfect style if you're a girl-on-the-go like me and you're in the in-between stage when it comes to hair growth. It's great for a date night, hanging out with your girls, the gym, and any last minute plans where you need to get cute quick.
If you're looking for new hair products to use try Cantu. You can find them at your local Target, Walmart, Sally's, your local beauty supply store and pretty much everywhere else you can think of. Cantu's Global stylist Maria Antoinette has an amazing video on how she does this same style, check it out!
