The super tight and sleek ponytail has become a staple in the red carpet! However, it’s just a matter of hours before you feel the throbbing headache your ponytail is causing you.
- This discomfort, although is a common thing, is actually a real headache disorder known as ponytail headache syndrome. It is experienced by almost every girl who likes their hair up and high in a pony.
- Girls are most likely naturally prone to ponytail headaches especially those who are suffering with migraine or frequent headaches leading to the development of a hyper sensitive scalp hence they struggle with this condition from time to time.
- It might also be because you are using elastics, rubber bands and other hair ties and accessories that are damaging and causing the unpleasant feeling in your head. Let’s dig in to the reason behind it and the perfect solution for this dilemma.
The science behind the ponytail headache
While ponytail headaches are classified as a type of “extracranial headache”, it’s still all beneath the surface. While your scalp doesn’t look like it’s in pain, it’s actually the nerves underneath your hair follicles that are in extreme agony.
When you gather your hair up and the act of pulling it triggers the feeling of tightness, your sensory nerves react to it which results to the development of headaches. Take note that it’s not just ponytails, braids and other hairstyles, hair extensions as well as hair accessories that you wear on your head that include hair pulling can trigger this condition.
Some quick ponytail discomfort fixes:
Let your hair down- If you feel that the discomfort is starting to creep in, one of the best and simple solutions is to immediately take your hair out of your ponytail and let it down.
Relax and massage- Loosen that ponytail and gently massage your scalp and temples where you think the pain is mostly felt.
Give your hair a break- You style your hair every now and then and that’s probably one of the reasons behind the hurting sensation in your head. Give your hair a break and try to let it rest from all the hair pulling and styling for at least a couple of days.
Rest and get a good sleep- We all need rest. Resting your body and mind will ease up the tension in your head and a good night’s sleep will be of great help to lessen the hypersensitivity of your scalp.
Seek help- Visit your doctor or neurologist if the pain is too much for you to handle and if it’s happening frequently. Seek help as early as now because it might be much worse than a ponytail headache. Didn’t mean to scare you but it’s just a fair warning that it’s better to be safe than sorry.
