Damage and breakage from working out?

So this past year, I was on the high school tennis team. It really had a toll on my hair because I would have it up in a tight pony for 4+ hours for 6 months straight. I have to have my hair out of my face, otherwise I can't see while playing. Headbands are a nightmare because they don't stay in. (My daddy tells me its because I have a funny shaped head!) I start playing again this week, and I want to keep my hair healthy. Does anyone have suggestions on how to keep my hair healthy while still playing the sport I love? Thanks!

Also do you have enough lenght to bun it?

Thats all I can think off.
I hear Goody Spin Pins are excellent for updos without damage. 2 would work for just general daily activities or someone who doesn't have a ton of hair to do a loose but secure bun. For something like tennis, you might want to use 3 or 4.

Walmart have these ouch less scrunchies that have a band on the inside that won't move. Look for the ouch less scrunchies that have a clear band on the inside. I love them.
