There's nothing more irritating than acquiring creases, wrinkles or indentation marks on your otherwise silky smooth strands.

How do you avoid hair creases from bobbies, hair clips, elastics and pins?  Keep reading for some quick fixes to this common hair problem.

How Do Hair Indentation Marks And Creases Develop?

How do these indentation marks and creases develop?  Actually it's fairly straightforward.

Creases, indentations and wrinkles are more likely to develop in ponytails, updos and panels of hair when the tresses are wet or still damp.

If you clip, pin or apply an elastic to hair which is damp the crease or hair wrinkle will actually dry into the tresses.

Hair Indentations Can't Be Easily Removed

Once an indentation has dried it can't easily be removed by brushing or combing the strands.

Certain types of bobbies, clips, elastics and pins are more likely to crease hair than other types.  Pony elastics which have a seam or a metal or similar connector piece are more likely to cause creasing.

Use Crease Free Elastic Bands On Damp Hair

If you must use elastics on damp hair, use Blax or Bungee cords which are less likely to cause creasing.  Blax are silky smooth and the Bungee cords can wrap completely around the hair and hooked into place.

You can also use soft leather, ribbon or other types of seamless elastic cords to avoid creases.  Soft elastics won't pinch delicate strands.

Rippled bobby pins can leave ridges.  If possible, use straight hair pins to anchor damp hair to avoid indentations.

If a clip or a pin has natural ridges imagine just what it will do to damp or wet strands.
