Default Ponytail = Headache. Why?

I'm trying to figure out why ponytails give me a headache. I have my hair in a loose pony right now, the band wrapped twice around, hair still very movable but it made my head hurt. I am extremely envious of you ladies who can wear ponytails all day everyday, even at night and you don't have any issues. What gives? Even headbands make my head hurt.

How long is ur hair? For some reason, some people with long hair I hear can't wear a bun for more than a couple hours bc they start to get a headache.

I have that problem too. I can't keep buns in long at all and I never wear them tight so I doubt that's the problem. I can only wear certain headbands. And I get a horrible headache with my bonnet. It's weird.

I can't wear certain headbands or have my ponytail too high for too long. Also, I can't wrap my hair. It gives my a headache and gives me a major sore spot in the morning when I wake up.

Default Re: Ponytail = Headache. Why?

its like that for me too. i dunno, maybe its the tension? even if i do it loosely, the edges of my hair still feel a lil tight and that can give me a headache. when i was natural it was worse. i would wear those ouchless bands holding my hair back and it really hurt. its like my hair is meant to be free lol. its like when naturals wear a big puff; it can start to hurt holding all that hair back!

Not at all, my mama/aunties/cousins were all heavy handed so I had to toughen up real quick.

I have this problem. Sometimes if I put my hair up in a pony tail or clip the weight of my hair will give me a headache. Wet hair is particularly heavy. Putting my hair up while wet almost guarantees a headache for me no matter how loose I clip my hair up or tie the hair tie.

ETA: I was very tenderheaded as a child.

It only happens to me when I add a weave to my bun. I think its the weight my scalp isnt use to yet. I dont think Im tenderheaded.

I have this problem too. It has to be on the loose side. I occasionally can get away with a ponytail but not too often, well at least not without taking a migraine pill.

I am not / never been tender-headed either, I actually like a heavy hand. My hair is WL.

I was actually going to ask this question about headaches myself.

Anyone have an explanation for this? I've been wearing wigs or half wigs for the past 2 years. I decided I was going to rock a puff or bun this summer. It seems that no matter what I use as a ponytail holder, I get a headache within minutes. I've tried placing the pony higher, lower, switching sides, to no avail.

FYI, my hair is 4B natural between SL and APL. When I BKT a few months ago I wore a pony around the house for a couple hours without any pain, but I shouldn't have to straighten my hair to pull it back.

Any suggestions?
