Are Ponytails Damaging


Question: Do ponytails damage your hair?
Unfortunately, wearing your hair in a ponytail too frequently can cause damage, such as breakage. Besides trying to avoid wearing your hair in too tight of a ponytail, make sure to condition it often and use styling products that treat and protect dry, brittle hair. Also, try to use hair ties that are covered in fabric and don’t use metal, rubber or plastic.
