Recently, I have been wearing my hair in a ponytail wayy too much. I get headaches and my scalp becomes sensitive after a while. I used to wear my hair down all of the time, but recently, I have wanted it out of my face. Below are some options that minimize hair breakage. If you’re a ponytail addict like me and still want to wear them, consider wearing a high ponytail one day and a low ponytail the next so there isn’t such a high risk of breakage.
1) The Pony Knot: pull your hair back to the nape and split into two sections. Tie the sections into a knot and tie with a clear elastic at the bottom. Optional: Spray hair with dry shampoo, and set with hairspray after styling.
3) The Low Pony: Pull hair back to nape, except for a one inch piece, and secure with a clear elastic. Wrap the extra one inch section around the ponytail and pin. Optional: Spray hair with a dry shampoo.
4) Phish Tails: Divide hair into two sections and fishtail braid each side (video tutorial). Secure with a clear elastic. Optional: Spray hair with dry shampoo and tease random sections for a messier look.
