Q: I have got into the habit of wearing my hair in a ponytail every day, is this bad for my hair?
 
A: You're right. Wearing a pony tail every day can cause breakage, snagging, or splintering of the hair. If wearing it down is not an option, maybe you play sports or work in a profession where you can't have your hair hanging down, or you just like the look of a sleek ponytail, there are preventative measures you can take in order to lesson the damage. First, make sure you aren't using plastic, rubber bands, or ponytail holders with metal on them, as these will snag on your hair, and cause breakage. Try for accessories covered in fabric or silk, as they are more delicate on your locks. Second, a nice trick is to first spritz your hair with a silicone spray before you put it up so it will glide more smoothly against any hair accessories.
