Video: How I Use Metagrip Ponytail Hooks

I purchased these ponytail hooks because the more natural hair I have, the harder it is to put my hair in decent ponytail with a normal ponytail holder. (how many times can I say ponytail in a sentence?)  I also haven't mastered a puff yet.


A while ago I saw Longhairdontcare2011 use these hooks and at first I was intimidated by them because the fear of ripping my hair out. But after watching a video by MsTanish, I realized you should place the hooks in your actual hair and NOT between each other. 

I purchased these from Sally Beauty Supply for $3.99...5 come in a pack. 



In this video, I have my hair in twists(they look pretty jacked up, but I plan on wearing scarves this week), but the same method applies to loose hair. 




This is a messy bun I today did using the hook.

  1. Came out nice, but I don't like the idea of metal hooked into my hair.

    I don't use even regular scrunchies with the metal piece.

    1. Thanks. I completely understand. I don't like the idea of scrunchies with metal pieces because my hair always got snagged in the corner of them.
      This somewhat feels like having those those close-style bobby pins in your hair. If I notice any breakage, snagging, etc, I will stop using them immediately and of course update this post. But so far, they are working okay for me.

  4. I have honestly wondered how to use these ponytail holders.. Thank you for the video, it looks like a little practice will keep it from snagging your hair..I think I will be able to use these down the line as my hair grows out.

    1. It does take a little practice, more so when you remove them. I still need to master putting them in without moving my hands around so much.
      Thanks for watching!

  5. I love the new blog design! Your hair looks great! I have always wondered about these hooks but thought they were only for creme girls and not brown girls. But would they only work if your hair is in braids or twist or something? Thanks for the vid!

    1. Hey girl!!! Hope all is well. Thank you!

      These work well for our loose highly textured hair as well. I first saw these being used on loose hair, but wanted to try them on my twists too.
