To much hair

Hello, I have a problem with my hair. Its long (waist lengh), Blonde and really thick. Today at school i had it tied up in a high pony tail and now I have a really sore head. My mum gets the same problem. Anyone have any ideas (short of getting my hair cut) to stop it hurting after Ive had it tied up?

Are you using a thin hair tie or a Scrunchi?
I have hair down to my waist as well and I stopped having those problems when I switched to a Scrunci. The ones I use are at least an inch wide and I only wrap it three times which is tight enough to secure the hair without giving you goggle eyes.

Ive been using a Scrunchi cos the thin ones get stuck in my hair. Ill try doing it not as tight. The only other thing i can really do is use chopsticks in my hair.

I can't use the thin ones either same problem. My hair is thick and prone to banana curls. I won't do the chopstick thing as that flat out wouldn't look right on a guy

Thankfully I have no problem finding hair ties in colors other than pastels or pinks. Only trouble I have is keeping one handy. My girlfriend keeps swiping mine. (Personally I don't think any of the current supply were ever her's in the first place)

Plait it.

Seems to work for others I know because the pressure is not on the roots. Easier to get through the helmet straps, too, I gather

Must really annoy the ex that you post on here with subjects like this... huh? Or is that why you do?

Disclaimer: This is offered by a balding guy with hair about 4mm thick on *some* parts of his head...but can still remember plaiting a tail about two inches about 25 years ago!
