Is it okay to gel up your edges every week day and put it in a puff?

I moisturize my hair before school and put it in a puff with edges geled up every weekday. Then on the weekend I try to wear my hair out more. Is my hair going to be okay or will my edges suffer if I continue to do this.

Traction Alopecia is when hair falls out and doesn't want to grow back because of tension or pulling. A friend of mine wears a slicked back ponytail, very tight everyday! Her hairline has receded significantly from when she was younger due to this. Make sure the puff isn't too tight and it's a good thing you are giving it a break on the weekends. But, I would try mixing it up a bit if you notice any loss or thinning at your hairline.
