Of course there are many, many more struggles we long-haired girls face, but here are 9 of them! Have you experienced any of these struggles?
If you lean in just a little into the table to grab a napkin or the salt shaker, your hair manages to take a bath in your plate of food.
2. Hair EVERYWHERE
On the bathroom floor, all over your room, on your desk, in your face... literally anywhere you are, hair always manages to find a home.
3. You constantly flip hair into people's faces
Sometimes, you just forget that you have long hair so you accidentally flip it into stranger's and friend's faces.
4. Knots and Tangles!
Long hair + knots = nightmare! Not only is your hair so long, but if it's all tangled up, it's almost impossible to un-tangle it out without losing so much hair.
5. Long hair + open windows? A big no-no.
When you have long hair, and you're in a car with open windows, it's not a pretty sight. All those movies where the girl character is in a open window car with perfect hair? Nuh-uh, it's a lie.
6. Curling, straightening, or using any type of hair tool takes FOREVER.
Long hair = so much time in making it look good. It can take hours to curl it perfectly or straighten EVERY. SINGLE. STRAND.
7. Drying takes forever.
When you don't dry your hair thoroughly after your night shower and just go straight to bed? The next morning, your hair is STILL wet.
8. Having to carry a hairband at all times.
Honestly, is there ever a time you don't have hairband around your wrist? You're constantly putting your hair up because it keeps getting in your face.
9. Constantly restocking shampoo and conditioner
Shampoo and conditioner doesn't even last you a month and a half. Actually, correction: conditioner doesn't even last you a full month.
The one good thing about having long hair?
You can donate it for those in need. If you're in need of a haircut and feel like doing good, donate your hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. They create wigs from donated hair for cancer patients. Pantene gives the wigs to the patients for free through the American Cancer Society. So, if you're feeling generous, donate your hair!
