• Wash
Washing your synthetic ponytail is a simple and fundamental task to keeping the hair tangle-free. To wash, apply a small amount of a mild shampoo (preferably a synthetic hair shampoo) into your hands, and then lather into the synthetic hair gently. Do not scrub or twist fiercely as this can damage the hair. Next rinse the hair with warm water until the water runs clear. Once this is done, squeeze the hair gently before conditioning.

• Condition
Once you have finished washing and rinsing the synthetic hair, apply a medium amount of conditioner to your hands and then coat the synthetic hair evenly. Allow the conditioner to sit on the hair for 10 minutes and then work on detangling the hair gently with your fingers. Afterwards, rinse thoroughly with mildly warm water.

• Dry
Most synthetic hair cannot be heated with heat styling tools such as blow dryers, so air drying is best. To do this, blot the hair dry with a towel and then place the hair on a wig stand or hang it in the shower and allow it to air dry.
Once the hair is dry, spritz some detangling spray onto the hair and then comb through gently with a wide tooth comb, starting from the bottom of the hair and working your way up.

One thing to note is that synthetic ponytails do not last forever, even with taking good care of them, if it becomes too tangled even after following these tips, it might be time to replace it.
