Why Does My Hair Hurt?
I found this really interesting article in The Huffington Post last month about why your hair hurts after being up all day, or sometimes from stress etc. One of the most interesting parts in it that I think you should take note on is how stretching of your hair into a ponytail in the same direction each day causes stress on the roots of the hair where the follicles are and can lead to thinning
(traction alopecia) and even hair loss! Eeek!!
So have a quick read over this and perhaps look at some other options to tame that mane!
