Long hair is beautiful, and generally seen as glamorous and to be envied. However, it is not all effortless beauty. There are many disadvantages to having long hair, some worse than others. In the end, though, they're worth it!
1. Windy Days
This is the reality of windy days. None of that glamorous, Pocahontas flowing hair. Just this mess.
2. Showers Taking Forever
There is no such thing as a quick shower when you need to shampoo your hair. Just get used to the high water bill.
3. Developing Arm Muscles From Using The Hair Dryer
Your arms are all jelly by the time you finish, and you are overheated and seriously debating how much you want straight hair.
4. Sitting On Your Hair
Or having other people sit on it, or lay on it. Or it getting stuck in your chair when you lean back.
5. Headaches From The Weight
Sometimes it feels like your hair is going to rip out from your scalp from the weight, and you swear your eyebrows might be lifting up when you put your hair into a ponytail.
6. Getting Your Hair Stuck In Doors/Windows
Or other things. It's a nuisance, and at times it's downright dangerous. Just be careful!
7. Your Hair Getting In Your Mouth (And In Other People's Mouthes)
Careful or you might be choking up a long hair, or detanging your locks from someone else's teeth.
8. Having Limited Ways To Style It
Ponytail, loose, or braid? Ponytail, loose or braid? Forget an updo, or cute curls. That takes way too long to do on a daily basis.
9. Your Hair Taking Days To Dry Naturally
Wash your hair at night and let it air dry, and it will likely still be wet two days later.
10. Humid Days
Let there be a little moisture in the air and — poof! Puffy fluff head. Pile on the hair products and hope for the best.
