: 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 :)!
I also started to think that wearing my hair in a tight ponytail for over 12 hours a day was not allowing the ends to get moisturized from the scalp so the ends kept breaking within a year. Now I'm putting cool water from my washed hands onto my scalp a couple times a day and trying to move them from my scalp to the hair ends...figure it moves some oil off my scalp every couple hours.
