13 Struggles Only Girls with Long Hair Understand

Having long hair is both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you feel like a Disney Princess with your glorious mane. On the other hand, you are a little ~too~ familiar with these 13 struggles thanks to those luscious locks of yours.

1. Leaving your house without a hair tie is a very risky move. You really can't live without one.

2. Putting your hair in a ponytail is pointless, because your hair is just as long when it's down.

3. You find your hair literally anywhere and everywhere. The worst is when you find it in your food.

4. The amount of things your hair can get caught in is ENDLESS. Zippers, bags, chairs, trees. You name it, your hair will get stuck in it.

5. The wind is not your friend, unless you're Pocahontas.

6. Brushing your hair drains all of your energy. At least you can count it as your exercise for the day!

7. It takes hours, days, even weeks for your hair to be fully blow-dried.

8. Trying to curl or flat iron your hair in less than 15 hours is mission impossible.

9. You've convinced yourself you're going bald, because you pull out strand after strand after strand of hair whenever you shower.

10. Getting a haircut is your biggest fear, because you're always worried the stylist is going to chop it all off.

11. You forget that your hair covers everything, so no one can see that you're wearing the cutest tee ever.

12. You run out of shampoo and conditioner almost every other day.

13. People always play with your hair without asking you. Can you blame them though? Your hair is gorg!


You know what else can be wildly annoying at times? Being short. All the short girls out there will identify with THESE nine struggles.
