We all know that things like heat styling and colouring can damage our hair, but did you know that the humble pony tail may also be causing damage? A ponytail is an easy go-to hairstyle but wearing your hair in same up style every day may cause damage.
If your ponytail is very tight, it puts pressure on the roots of your hair and can cause hair loss known as traction alopecia. Luckily this hair loss is not permanent but it can be pretty obvious and difficult to deal with.
As well as hair loss, there’s also damage caused around your hair elastic. Wearing your hair in the same style each day can put pressure on that area of hair. Over time this can mean breakage around your hair elastic.
The solution to this is simple – just vary your style from day to day. And if you can’t gave up your ponytail addiction, we also stock the fabulous Invisibobble. The Invisibobble is a ponytail holder that won’t crease or damage your hair, holds your style in place without pulling and doesn’t tangle with dry or wet hair.
