Dr Oz: Why Does My Ponytail / Hair Hurt? EASY Remedy to Fix It


Why Does My Hair Hurt?

Dr. Oz asked who wears a ponytail?  And does it ever hurt when you take your hair down, out of the ponytail?  He said that it is a common sensation.  Even though it feels like your actual hair is hurting, it is the structure under the hair getting stressed out and causing the pain.



When you wear your hair in a tight ponytail all day, you can start to feel pain in the nerve endings underneath your hair follicles.  Your hair follicles are not getting enough circulation, which causes the problem.
