"Sleeping with a ponytail creates tension and pulls at the hairline, and can cause hair loss," says Dbjay, a hair expert. Also, elastic bands leave a stubborn bend in your hair, which is tough to get rid of. 

Apply a Hair Mask Before Bed

Applying a hair mask once a week will make dry hair smooth and soft. Mix coconut and olive oil, coat the hair with the blend, focusing on brittle ends. Wrap hair into a bun and cover it with a shower cap and let the mix sit for 15-30 minutes. Rinse it with a conditioner or a shampoo.
