The One Thing You Should Never Do When Putting Up A Ponytail

June 16, 2016 by Keren Leshem

If you’re having a bad hair day, if it’s just too hot out, if you need your hair off of your neck and out of your face, we all resort to the ponytail. It’s simple, reliable, and looks great on everyone.

But there’s something that you need to know about your trusty ponytail… you shouldn’t be wearing one every day! We know, it’s so easy to just take a hair tie and put your hair up, but doing this can actually be damaging to your hair. By putting your hair up in the same spot, day after day, you are putting pressure on the same hair follicles, which can weaken your hair and possibly prevent hair growth (no!!!!!).

So, try using clips or bobby pins to keep your hair out of your face, or put your hair up in different spots on your head to try and ease the tension.
