: It sounds like you could very well have been experiencing damage caused by a combination of the elastic, overbrushing (straightening hair that 'wants' to be curly), and the tension from being kept in a ponytail for extended periods of time. Wearing it down - along with maybe trying a good quality leave-in conditioner - might bring you some pleasant results. Keep us posted :)!
That's what I'm hoping! Took around 17 years for me to change because people kept saying I was going bald and it was a genetic thing but my hair just got thin and never just fell out except in one area (my dad is bald so maybe there's nothing I can do about that one area in top/back of my head).
I'm just wearing my hair in a loose ponytail at night after my hair is dry from water wash and using one of those frilly looking ponytail holders but are probably more gentle and it's black. It's similar to the picture attached.
