Did you ever wear your hair in a wet ponytail?
Come on, we all did it.
Your hair is a dirty mess, but you don’t have time to wash it, dry it, style it… You’re running late, again. But going out of the house looking like that ain’t an option either…
You give it and get in the shower, shampoo your hair and… tie it up in a ponytail – without drying it first…
Your hair’s clean – no need to be ashamed of what your neighbours will think of you. Problem is, this quick fix can do more harm than good to your locks. Here’s why:
Why you shouldn’t wear a wet ponytail
Here’s the deal: wet hair is very fragile. It can stretch, making it more vulnerable to breakage. To avoid any damage, you have to treat it gently. And putting it up in a tight ponytail is often more than your hair can take.
If your hair is dirty and you don’t have time to wash it, then you’re better off wearing a hat or use a dry shampoo. You can always wash it properly once you come back home in the evening.
But if you really want to wear a wet ponytail, then make sure you use a wide-tooth comb to comb it and tie the ponytail loose to minimize the damage. Still, it’s better to just use dry shampoo. 🙂
