    How "slick" do you want it to look? You can always try styling on wet hair and using a gel first and a boar bristle brush. Applying a thick pomade will also be a great idea so it can look more polished.

    Oyin Burnt sugar hands down. It's thick and wonderful for smoothing hair when you want it in a pony. I don't know of any other since that seems to work so well.

    I agree with using a gel/pomade and then a boar bristle brush. The brush especially makes a HUGE difference!

    You could also tie it down with a scarf for a few minutes

    I agree with the previous responders about the gel and boar bristle brush. Here's a video tutorial that I used the first time I attempted a puff: Natural Hair | Puff Tutorial - YouTube

    She gives simple instructions and walks you through every step.

    THIS! My hair and boar bristle brushes don't play well together. But if I do a puff on damp hair and apply a strong gel and tying it down with a scarf immediately after I CAN get super slick, stuck to my scalp hair in minutes.

    Ecostyler Olive Oil Gel + Joie MyGel (amazing stuff). I don't use a brush-- just slick it down with my hands. After I get my puff going then I tie a scarf around... the longer you let the scarf stay on the better.. at least 30 min. I usually leave mine on the whole car ride to work.

    Look into Joie MyGel! I'm about to place my 4th or 5th order for the large size.

    Here's a pic. I had flat twists on the top and slicked down on the sides with a puff.
