The Hair Accessory That is Ripping Your Hair Out
Updated: Oct 19, 2020
One of the most important hair accessories we use during the warmer parts of the year is a ponytail. Over time the design of how our everyday ponytails look and work has changed. We've done away with the rubber bands that have metal closures and opt instead for a solid band of elastic that secures our hair and hopefully doesn't cause damage.
Here's where we can get ourselves in some trouble. Client's often sit in my chair, and I watch how they remove their ponytail from their hair. It's usually removed by pulling it from the hair. Once the client's hair is down, I often notice a patch of short, broken hairs that have been caused by wearing your hair.
In an attempt to avoid damaging my own hair, I've recently swapped out all my ponytails.

These fold-over elastic ponytails are so much more comfortable on my fine hair, and I feel very little tug when I'm removing them (which means I'm not pulling my hair out with my rubber band!). They're a great buy at $8 for 100.
