Stop Wearing Tight Buns And Ponytails

Tight hairstyles and there effects I know that wearing a ponytail or snatched is easy to do daily, but it's not a healthy style. one of the main mistakes that women make is that they wear tight rubber bands around the hair.This is bad for relaxed hair and natural hair. Now from time to time it is OK but not all the time. The hands around the parameter which is the hairline circling around the forehead to the nape of the neck are sensitive hairs. these hairs can not Take alot Of tension. These hairs are not meant to be pulled back or up. I will give you a few tips that will help you maintain your hair but not break of your hairline. 1. Do not style tangled hair One of the worst things you can do is pull tangled hair into a ponytail or bun. You will end up with a rat's nest that is a headache to detangle. If your hair is dry, lightly finger detangle it before styling. If it is wet, detangle as you normally would after a wash before styling. 2. Do not put soaking wet hair into a bun or ponytail Hair is at its most fragile state when it is soaking wet. It isn't a good idea to try to put your soaking wet hair in a bun or ponytail. What you may discover is that you will begin to see breakage along the area that is secured by the ponytail holder. A better idea is to allow the hair to become at least damp before you style it. 3. Make sure dry hair is moisturized before styling If you want to put your dry hair into a ponytail, make sure it is moisturized. Dry hair is also very prone to breakage. Moisturized hair is more pliable and will be less likely to snap.
4. Do not pull your hair too tightly into a ponytail No matter how much you may enjoy the sleek ponytail look, you cannot pull your hair too tightly into a ponytail. If you do, it will not be long before your hairline starts to suffer. Secure your hair firmly into a metal free, seamless ponytail holder, anelastic headband, or a banana clip. If you use a seamless ponytail holder, you may find that there is no need to double or triple wrap it around your hair. They are generally small enough to hold hair in place well with worrying about it falling off your hair. If you use an elastic headband, you may need to wrap it 2-3 times around your hair for a secure fit. Try wrapping it twice and shake your head a bit. If the headband isn't moving and your hair isn't falling out of it then it should be okay. If you run into any of the two issues I just mentioned, wrap it around one more time for a secure fit. With banana clips, the key is in the size of the clip. The size will depend on the density of your hair. These are my least favorite option and work best on very stretched or straightened hair. If your hair has very high density, you may want to skip these altogether. 5. Use a satin or silk scarf for slick edges Instead of using a hard bristled brush to try to tame edges, try using a gel, pomade, wax, etc. and a scarf. After applying the product to your edges, immediately put on your scarf and leave it on for at least 5 minutes. If your edges aren't sleek enough, try a product with a better hold. 6. Protect your ends If you are wearing a bun, you are tucking your ends and protecting them from the elements. You still need to moisturize them before you tuck them. If you are wearing a ponytail, moisturize your ends, then seal with an oil or butter. 7. Make sure that you wear your hair in different directions from time to time. The hair will start to weaken if it's worn the same way. also it trains your hair to not be flexible. So when you go for another style it will take more tension for it to look nice. So in between going to your stylist make sure you follow these tips. Hopefully these tips will help you wear a ponytail or bun without any damaging effects. These styles can be great as protective styles or when you are having a "lazy hair day".  Reference
