    I updated the fotki today: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fpublic.fotki.com%2Fthislittledove%2F1st-month-%2F" class="Popup

    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!
