First of all, refrain from tying your hair up when it is wet. Even though you think that you protecting your hair from heat styling by putting it up, wet hair is the most fragile. Tying your hair back tightly while it's wet could further break it. If you want to avoid using heat, you could instead let your hair air dry before tying it back—or even making a low braid—so that the hair tie just touches the ends of your hair rather than the top.

Secondly and lastly, avoid wearing your hair in tight hairstyles. In addition to causing alopecia, this will also result in hair breakage.




Choosing the best ponytail holders for thick hair can be difficult. Thick hair works best with hair ties made specifically to avoid snagging and creasing. Our top pick from the above list is without a doubt the Burlybands hair ties. These hair ties will not only keep your hair up without breaking it, but they will also last you for many months.
