Warm weather is great – until it leaves you with a sweaty neck and sweaty hair. And one way we beat the heat is to throw our tresses up into a ponytail. But even ponytails can dent and damage your hair. So, what are you supposed to do? If you’re a frequent ponytail gal, you’ll want to try these three hair care tips.

Wear gentler hair ties 

Traditional hair ties can dent, damage and break hair strands. And no one wants to let their hair down and see strange bends and ridges. 

So, instead of giving up on ponytails, consider going with a gentler elastic tie. These slipsilk skinnes hair ties, for example, are made using high-grade silk to keep your hair up and away, without damaging it.

Another nice option are the Kitsch Pro Satin Sleep Hair Scrunchies, available in three different colors (blush, black and neutral). The satin charmeuse ties offer friction-free hold without causing breakage and damage.

Condition hair more

Along with wearing gentler hair ties, remember to condition your hair more frequently. This can boost the health and strength of hair shafts and prevent ponytail damage. 

Wash hair less

Too much washing can strip the natural oils from your hair. It can also take away a lot of your hair’s natural texture – something you need to keep your ponytail in place. So, consider trying a dry shampoo to keep your hair looking fresh while you lay off the regular shampoo.
