# Fix those fly aways with Vaseline and toothbrush.

If you want a tight slick ponytail but can’t make those flyaway’s and wisps of hair to settle down then dab a little Vaseline onto a toothbrush and brush back that hair. This will make them stay in place and brushed back longer than they would have stayed if you had used hair gel or mousse. Also, they will look completely natural.

#Hydrate that lifeless hair

Tired of undernourished hair? Rub Vaseline on to your palms and massage your hair with it…leave it on and wash it off in the morning with your shampoo. Remember to take only a small amount of Vaseline and do not massage it straight into the crown or scalp of your hair…

If the Vaseline does not come out of your hair remember to add a spoon of baking soda to your everyday shampoo.
