Joya, this has been a topic of controversy...on this hair site and others. I honestly believe that bunning/pony-tail/stretching works for some, but may be detrimental to others. All you can do is watch your hair closely and respond accordingly. For me, pony-tailing my soaking wet hair, twisting and rolling it (to stretch it further) and making a bun on damp hair the next day really helped me to maintain length. I noticed much less breakge and my ends stay intact (NO splitting!!). Wearing my hair out seems to lead to more damage...go figure
