    I updated the fotki today: http://public.fotki.com/thislittledove/1st-month-/

    And my question is...are ponytails a protective style? I've been wearing two ponies for the past month, sometimes tucking the ends under to make mini-buns. They're not tight, but I wonder if the places where the bands usually put the most tension on will get weaker over time? Thanks!
