Totally! When my hair was longer I used to get headaches alot when I pulled it back and I used to pull it back almost all the time . I switched over to scrunchies (oh the horror ) for awhile and that helped (you really couldn't see the scrunchie because I used the thinner ones and my hair was so thick that they just kind of disappeared under the mass). Now that my hair is shorter it is a little harder to pull it back, not long enough to do a ponytail. I can pull the top part back into a stubby ponytail but that gave me a headache too so now I am experimenting with just pulling a little section back with a barrette. That is definitely less painful.
