The Queen of Curls answers your questions
Dear Ouidad: Is it damaging to constantly have my hair in a ponytail during the day? Does this damage my hair at the root?
A: Yes, and yes. You are stretching out your curls and can be ripping out hair along your hairline. You can put it back but more loosely, not tight, so you don't stretch out your curl pattern. And I would certaily not recommend a ponytail every day.
