Thick hair usually doesn’t accommodate high ponytails easily. The weight of the hair pulling on the scalp creates headaches and hair ties slip as the day goes on – leaving us looking worn out and cranky. If you are a lover of high ponytails (like me), I’ll let you in on my secret weapon to achieving the look I want without having to suffer from the negative side effects: DOUBLE (or triple) up on your elastics!
My weapon of choice is Scünci Thick Hair No-damage Black Elastics and I use two at a time. You’d think one should do the trick based on the fact that it’s specifically for thick hair, but I found they still slipped and caused headaches, so I doubled them up hoping it would alleviate the weight of my hair pulling on my scalp – and it works! Specifically, I layer them by adding one elastic at a time (generally, one elastic can be tightly twisted around my ponytail base three times). For those with even thicker hair than me, I express my condolences and would suggest adding even more elastics until you find that your ponytail doesn’t slip during the day.
