A tight ponytail looks nice but make sure it is not too tight and pulls your scalp or hair strands. If this is the case, loosen the ponytail holder a little.

Dry Scalp: Dry scalp also causes a stretch after tying a ponytail. So, if your scalp is dry and paining after opening the high ponytail, apply oil on the scalp immediately. It provides instant relief. Sometimes, ponytail can also cause headache. So, a hair oil massage is good and also relaxing.

Ponytail Holder: Which holder are you using to tie the ponytail? If it is a rubber band or a metal with elastic holder, then throw them right away. They pull the hair, damages it and causes scalp pain. Use a ponytail holder or hair band that is easy to open and doesn't even pull hair. Silk holder or hair scrunchies are soft and easy to open.
