Q: Can wearing ponytails break the hair?


A: Yes, if the ponytail is pulled too tight, it can cause breakage to the hair, in two main areas:
1. If you pull the ponytails too tight for too long, it puts tension on the hairline at the front and over time can cause the hair to weaken and break around the front hairlines.
2. If the band used to tie around the hair is too tight, it can cause the tension on the same area over time to weaken and break the hair, try using softer bands and scrunchies to tie hair with.

  1. I also think that if you tie hair up when it’s wet and it dries while being pulled taut that it’s also damaging.
