Default Ponytails causing loss of hairline

I'm 19 and have been wearing my hair in a ponytail ever since I can remember. Lately, I've been noticing that everytime I brush my hair into ponytail, these two pieces of hair on my head always stand up and I'm noticing that the hair on my temples is starting to thin out . Do you think this is due to wearing ponytails everyday? I HATE to wear my hair out because it never acts right, it always makes me hot, I start to sweat and then my hair starts to look a mess . How can I stop my hair from breaking without wearing ponytails everyday?

I would just try wearing them a little bit looser. Also the type of ponytail holder that you may be using may be part of it too. I noticed that there are some ponytail holders that you don't have to wrap around as many times and those are usually better on your hair.

Also, don't redo the ponytail so much. If you can help it, try to not to rebrush the hair everyday. I wear ponytails alot and my temples thinned. At first I thought it was because of brushing so much but then I realized it was my horomones readjusting after having me daughter and pulling the ponytail real tight that caused the thinning and over course over brushing the temples. I wear my hair in a ponytail or a bun when I go to work so what I do is I put my hair in a bun first while it is wet and then I apply some gel (ic fantaisa or Isoplus) to the front of my hair and brush it back with a boar brush then tight it down until I am ready to leave. I don't have to redo it for at least 3 days. I notice that my poytails are not so tight and I have the hair on my temples again.

But you may want to give your hair a rest from the poytails for a while until they grow back.

I do my hair the same exact way and I use the same 2 gels, but recently (for about a year now), i've been using fantasia. I do brush my hair everyday though by re-wetting the front and adding more gel.

WHat I used to do, Is when I get in the house... and I know I'm not goin back out... I took out my pony, and I rubbed oils on my temples.... helps with headahces too..... Then I'd put my hair up, in my satin scarf....

You can try not makin it so tight, and if you have a problem with it laying down, while it's wet add some gel, and tie a bandana (sp?) around your hairline, tie it in the back... leave that on til you are ready to leave, or about 10 min.
