To all of my long-haired (and even medium length) friends, isn't hair amazing? It's a personal accessory, custom-made (quite literally, thanks to biology), only for you. It can be curly, straight, wavy or a unique mix nestled in between. While hair is great, there are some things that all girls with long hair understand, struggles we regularly deal with. Everything is a give and take, and having long, flowing locks is no exception.

1. School Desks

I'm sitting in class getting ready for the day's lesson, and I want to check if I have my homework. When I lean over my folder, I feel a tug. Sigh. It's those silver knobs on the seats of school desks, and my hair is caught in them. Well, guess I needed a haircut anyway.

2. Tangles

I could be casually combing my hair or in a rush in the morning, and no matter what I do or how clean my hair is, there are tangles. And my hair is straight. I can only imagine how much harder it is for my curly-haired friends.

3. Everyone can see the oil

The longer my hair it is, the more obvious that I haven't washed it. There's no hiding anywhere.

4. Overheating

Any day that it's hot, I feel it. My head lets me know. The more hair I have, the more I turn into a human thermometer. Hair is an insulator all right.

5. Hair stylists don't understand the length you want

I asked for a half of an inch, and I walked out of there with a bowl-cut. Awesome. Fabulous. Just what I wanted.

6. The Touchers and Braiders

There's always somebody that wants to braid my hair and touch it when it's long. It's like I'm a mouse in an experiment.

7. Pixie Cut Envy

I love my long hair! Look how flowy and silky it is! But wait, that girl with the pixie cut looks so fashion-forward and empowered. Should I? Maybe...

There it is: six struggles all girls with long hair will understand, as told by the lovely Grey's Anatomy. How many of these could you relate to?
