The Kind Of Ponytail Holders To Use

June 6, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

There are myths that say when you put your hair in a ponytail, you can damage your hair. If you ever notice your hair to be more frizzy than normal, it means you have split ends. Those split ends could be caused by the overuse of a ponytail holder. There are many kinds of holders and depending on the kind you use, your damage can vary. This means the myths are true but it depends on the material of your ponytail.

When we wear our hair in a ponytail to work out or clean around the house every once in a while, it’s fine on your hair. The scary damage comes when you repeatedly wear your hair in a ponytail (high or low do). Especially with a ponytail made out of something other than cloth. There are a few different kinds of material that ponytail holders can be made out of but some are more damaging than others.

You know how some people tighten their ponytail by grabbing two sections of hair in the pony and tugging in opposite directions? That’s the thing that causes most damage. A cloth material around a ponytail can’t do much damage because it has the fibers to softly rub against your hair without tearing your hair to shreds. Even when you tighten your pony it won’t create as many split ends as other materials would.

Some people decide to wear a different kind of ponytail with a holder made out of a rubber material. There are many kinds of ponytail holders available now that claim to keep your hair in place so you don’t have to worry about your hair falling out during a run. Although this may be true, the rubber material still pulls at your hair because it sticks to the strands rather than rubbing swiftly against like cloth. With so much pull on your hair with one little rubber band, these kinds of pony tail holders could create just as much damage as a hair straightener.

So even if you’re worried about your hair falling out during a run, your best choice may be a cloth covered ponytail holder for your bun or pony. Try using a holder that won’t overstretch and maybe even use a few bobby pins to keep it all secure. Although it may be more work, it will cause less damage in the long run and you’ll be thanking your ponytail holder.

Plan Ahead For Great Vacation Hair

January 22, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Do you have a vacation planned? Maybe you’re trying to get away from your cold winter at home or you just need a break from every day life? Whatever your reason for getting away, that’s great! Everyone needs a vacation once in awhile, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t want your hair to look great while you’re away.

When it comes to packing your regular hair tools and styling supplies while you are on vacation, you might be overwhelmed and not really sure where to begin. If you are like a lot of women, you probably have a drawer full of styling tools and equipment and you may not want to take them all with you when you travel.

The first thing you need to decide is what you want your hair to look like while you are away. If you are going to an all inclusive beach club and are going to be spending most of your time by the pool or by the beach you probably don’t need to bother with straightening your hair or curling your hair everyday. I mean why spend precious vacation minutes styling your hair when it is only going to be ruined the minute you jump into the pool? So instead, leave the straightener behind and try a different technique. If you hair is naturally curly, go with it. In fact, the extra humidity of tropical locations will enhance your curls so pack some mouse or gel and scrunch them up.

If you don’t want your curls to become unruly, treat yourself to some new hair accessories and get some headbands, barrettes and pony tail holders to keep your hair off your face and looking stylish.

Of course, you may be traveling somewhere where you want to look great all the time. In that case, you will have to pack your hair tools. But maybe you don’t need to pack everything? Depending on how long you are going to be gone, it might be okay to only pack your hair straightener. In fact, your hair iron is the most versatile hair tool there is, so if you want straight hair one day, loose sexy curls the next day, and a sleek look with flirty flips on the ends, you can achieve all of that with only one hair tool.

Depending on where you are traveling and staying there may be a hair dryer available to you in your hotel room. But if you like knowing what type of hair dryer you are using, you should bring your own. A good travel dryer can save you a lot of time and energy drying your hair and will also fold down and fit in your suitcase easily.

Where ever you plan on escaping to this winter, you can look stylish and fantastic, it just requires a little bit of planning on your part. Remember, your hair should be a secondary consideration when you’re on holidays. Your primary concern should be having a great time and enjoying your time away.
