To answer the OP's question, I've used the dozen ties all down it about every inch before, and long leather wraps, which hook on a hair tie, and then snap around the rest of the ponytail, keeping it from getting tangled; like this:
Hair Glove Pony Tail Holder- Black Neoprene
or this:
Hair GlovesŪ

However, most of the time, the BEST way to keep my hair from getting tangled is to braid it, and that's what I usually do. It works best for me to braid it while it's still wet. I get a tighter braid, almost all the way to the end (usually about 2-3 inches left), and it seems to stay "together" longer and better. That's worked out the best for me, so far, and my hair is now long enough to reach to my belt when tied up in back, and before I gut it off last time, it was long enough to "sit" on. I've pretty much had my hair long for all but 3-4 years out of the last 20, so I've been dealing with this for a LONG time! Women are both surprised and impressed (in a good way) when they see my tight braid, ask about it, and I tell them that I did it myself.

Growth I got too! Each time I've chopped it all off, it's grown back FASTER. First time I grew it out, it reached about 3/4 of the way down my back, and took 6.5 years to get there. It was wrapping around my neck in the middle of the night and choking me, though, so I cut it off. Wife didn't believe I was going to do it! I found I "missed" it, though, so grew it back. That time it took 7 years, but I was starting to "sit" on it when tied back, which was rather painful, so I cut it off again. I really felt like my hair had become my "identity", on top of needing it short to try to get a job, so I kept it short for the next 3-4 years. Once I got the job I have now, I felt like it was Ok to start growing it again, and it's only been about 3-4 years, and it's already between the 1st and 2nd lengths, right about the top of my belt.

As far as "product", I've used that "Mane and Tail" shampoo/conditioner, which was originally designed for horses, before, and it seemed to help "strengthen" my hair, but most of the time now I just use Tresemme' moisturizing shampoo (cheap, and works well). Even when I use a brush (every other day, when undoing my braid), I only get a small "wad" of hair pulled out, about the size of a quarter.

I was thinking the same thing. Kinda like the NONO commercial with the guy talking about it is "like getting a fresh wax". As far as answering the OP, try a helmet. The first 53 seconds pertain.
