15 Struggles Girls With Insanely Thick Hair Will Understand.

If your hair is like mine your are currently sitting here in the middle of summer wondering what hair style you will try today. When it comes down to it you might try for a minute, get very frustrated and then put it up in that normal pony tail until fall has hit. Many people picture luscious thick locks like the ones seen in many of the shampoo commercials, but I can promise you it comes with more struggles than you can imagine. Here are the struggles that every girl with insanely thick hair can relate to.

1. Waiting for your hair to dry naturally is an all day event.

2. But if you choose to blow dry it get ready to SWEAT. This process will also take about an hour, but on the upside you will get a full workout.

3. If your plan is to leave it natural you have a two page list of product that must go in at a certain time in a certain order.

4. Getting ready takes at least two hours longer than everyone else because straightening or curling your hair takes an hour.

5. When you go to the hair salon they break about 20 of those small dainty combs.

6. And while you are at home you break even the most industrial brushes.

7. Expect to be at the hair salon for at least five hours if you are getting a cut, color and blow out. (half the time I say skip the blow out)

8. When you were younger you still got charged the adult hair cut even though you were under the age of 10.

9. Hearing the famous line "I'm so jealous of your thick hair" and just smiling while thinking of all the reasons why you would shave half of your head.

10. One percent humidity makes you look like a poodle that just came from the groomer.

11. Having to use two of the thick hair ties to keep your pony tail on top of your head.

12. But that same pony tail will make you have an excruciating migraine.

13. Your hair freezes when you walk outside in the winter because it NEVER dries.

14. The hairdresser never thinks you have a lot of hair and then they grab hold of the pony tail.

15. Not needing a sock to do a sock bun because your hair forms that tight bun without it. If you do use the sock contraption it looks like somebody placed a UFO on top of your head.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
