Long hair is both a blessing and a curse.
When its healthy and styled it can be absolutely beautiful, but keeping it healthy and finding the energy to style it is the tricky part. Back when Twitter was a fresh new social media site the hashtag #longhairprobs was always trending. Why? Because lord knows that when your hair grows so does your list of complaints that come along with it.
My hair is always getting trapped in things, getting things spilled on it and overall just getting in the way. Here are 14 things that make being a girl with long hair just a little more difficult.
1. Car doors
A simple trip to the grocery store can leave you with a bald spot when you unknowingly reach across the seat for your purse while your hair remains stuck in the car door.
2. Clothes with fancy backs
Nothing better than buying a cute new top or dress with a cool back and realizing no one is going to be able to see it anyways.
Finding these stuck to your clothes while your in class or anywhere public leads to a few judgemental looks from the people around you watching you pluck them off.
4. The chairs at school
These. Are. The. Devil. I don’t even know how I made it past 7th grade without going bald.
I don’t know how all those models and movie stars make it look so easy. Wind in the hair is not sexy.
Putting the straps on is a strategic method and attempting to get anywhere without your hair catching in a zipper is a just wishful thinking.
7. Lip gloss
When combined with number 5 on the list, this can create a pretty sticky situation. Nothing like a mouthful of hair to leave a great impression.
8. Toothpaste spit
This is a serious issue and an epidemic that we long haired women often face. Long hair is not always glamorous.
The epitome of a love hate relationship; we love them but we hate how much they love to pull our hair.
10. Blow Dryers
Nothing like getting half your hair sucked into the back end of a blow dryer when you’re in a hurry.
Ceiling fans, rotating fans, handheld fans, you name it. These awful things are definitely not fans of long hair.
12. Hair Ties
Can’t live with em, can’t live without em. While they may cut off all circulation in your wrist you know you’ll regret it later if you don’t bring one. That is of course if you can find one that isn’t too tight and won’t fall out 2 minutes after you put it up.
LOL at every long haired girl who thought she could wear these. Don’t bother curling your hair, it’ll just get ripped out anyways. Actually, don’t even bother having hair at all, you won’t have any left by the end of the night with this kind of getup.
Because at the end of the day, not matter how annoying it may be, cutting any of our hair off scares the living sh*t out of us.
