We'll help you avoid the dreaded hair dent for good. Read on!

What Causes Ponytail Dents?

Let's first go a little more into what exactly causes those unsightly dents, creases, and hair breakage.

Traditional hair ties, scrunchies, and elastics are often coated in fabrics that cause friction on hair strands. This leads to breakage and split ends. Hair damage is also caused by pressure from the hair tie itself.

And don't even get us started on non-fabric elastics, and worse yet, rubber bands *cue music from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho*.

No need to fear. Blissy's mulberry silk, no-crease hair ties are friction-free! Silk has 43% less friction than cotton, making silk a superior material for no-crease hair ties.

Plus, silk won't absorb your hair's natural oils or leave-in products, leading to glossier, healthier hair.

Haircare Pro Tip: For buying the best, no-crease hair ties—buy silk, not satin. Satin is not the same as silk.

Don't be fooled by ads touting the beauty benefits of satin hair ties, because these products are often made from subpar materials.

  • Need the perfect hair-dent-free headband? Choose one of our Beauty Bands or Head Pieces!
  • Don't pull your hair up too tight, like in a high ponytail or top knot. The tension can break your hair over time. Try wearing a loose bun, low pony, braid, or gentle twist instead.
  • Don't wash your hair more than necessary. Use dry shampoo between washings if needed.
  • Put down your hair dryer and styling tools! Style your hair without heat as often as possible to reduce damage.

Hair Care Tip: Avoid using a blow dryer on high heat on sopping wet hair. the hot air from a blow dry can cause damage! Dry your hair to at least 80% on low heat before turning up the heat.

Are Hair Ties Bad for Your Hair?

When it comes to styling your hair, whether it's a high ponytail for a workout or a chic ponytail for a night out, hair ties are a go-to accessory. But are these handy beauty tools bad for your hair? The answer lies in how we use them.

Frequent use of tight hair ties, especially on wet hair, can lead to hair breakage. Wet hair is more prone to damage, and when tied tightly, it puts uneven pressure on the hair shaft, leading to breakage and the dreaded ponytail dent. For those with thick hair, the tension can be even more damaging, as the hair tie struggles to return to its original size, pulling and straining the strands.

Rubber bands are a particular culprit. Unlike soft, elastic ties, rubber bands create a high level of pressure and tension, which can cause significant breakage and harm to your tresses. Switching to gentler options like silk scrunchies can mitigate this damage. They distribute pressure more evenly and are less likely to cause that annoying ponytail dent.

For a healthier approach, try not to wear your hair in a tight ponytail for more than a couple of hours. Opt for loose, low hairstyles that reduce tension and pressure on your hair. Also, avoid tying your hair when it's wet, as this is when it's most vulnerable. And remember, on days when your hair needs a break, cute bobby pins or a stylish headband can be a great alternative to give your hair a rest while still keeping your style game strong.
