25 Problems Only Girls With Thick Hair Will Understand

25 Problems Only Girls With Thick Hair Will Understand

I've owned 500+ bobby pins in my life...I have one left.


As a girl who's grown up with thick hair, I know the struggle! There are just some things that girls with thin hair just won't be able to understand.

All the repeated comments from hair stylists, having to explain what thinning your hair is, and people constantly wanting to just run their hands through it! Those are just a few extra that I didn't even include in this list!

Who knew hair could cause so many problems. At the end of the day, we come to have a love-hate relationship our thick hair but there are times we just feel like cutting it all off! But short hair tends to not work either...so it's a struggle.

1. You have to wake up earlier than anyone else.


If you want your hair to look nice for the day, be prepared to allow a hour or more on it in the morning.

2. If you shower and put your hair in a bun in the morning, by nighttime... it’s still wet.


It's hard to avoid when you're in a hurry! Showering then throwing it up to avoid having to deal with it until later always seems like an easy solution. But when night comes and you take it out, be prepared for a tangled wet mess.

3. You always run out of conditioner before shampoo...


Not to mention how much money you spend on that crap to get a thorough wash!

4. Blow drying takes fricking forever...


There's really no winning when it comes to drying your hair. It takes forever to blowdry it and by the time you finish you feel like taking another shower cause you're all sweaty!

5. Your hair ain’t got time for no cute hair styles.


Cute Pinterest hair dos? Nope.

6. French braiding is a work out...


It's always better to have someone else french braid your hair because if you do it, halfway through your arms are sore! Then you have to debate whether or not to give up and give your arms a break.

7. Your hair is so heavy sometimes it gives you a headache.


When you finally get your ponytail in just the way you want it, you have to take it down cause its so damn heavy!

8. At any given moment, hair will fly into your mouth/face...


Windy days are one of your worst enemies, theres no taming it after a nice gust of wind.

9. If you want to go to a salon, you need to allow about four or more hours.


You've just got so much hair it'll take forever to style it! Even for a professional.

10. Brushing your hair is a nightmare...


So many knots... you just become immune to the yanking and pulling!

11. Humidity = bad hair day.


Humidity...another worst enemy it just makes your day so much worse.

12. Your hair eats bobby pins.


I've owned 500+ bobby pins in my life...I have one left.

13. You shed more than a cat.


Running your fingers through your hair isn't usually the best thing to do in the first place, but when you do, don't be surprised when you find loads of loose hairs falling out.

14. There’s been many a broken hair brush in your life.


Trying to yank those knots out have cost you many a hair brush.

15. All the ads you get are probably for some sort of drain cleaner


Theres just so much hair!

16. Drying your hair naturally takes forever...


Brushing your hair an hour after your shower and it's still wet! Come on!

17. Cutting your hair short isn’t a good idea either.


It always ends up being shorter than planned, especially in the humidity!

18. You're constantly brushing!


In attempt to avoid knots, you've always got to brush...

19. Curling your hair takes up half your day.


By the time you finish, the side you curled first is already loose! Not to mention, you still miss a huge clump cause it was hidden by the curls!

20. You regularly break hair elastics.


Another thing to continously spend money on... those things just can't handle your hair!

21. Sometimes it feels like your hair is out to kill you!


It's everywhere! And if it's long enough, you'll find it tangled around your throat in the morning if you don't put it up before bed.

22. So much sweat in the summer...


It's the worst when you wear it down and find it sticking to your arm pits and back...

23. Never ending knots!


No matter how much you seem to brush, theres always a hidden knot.

24. Low water pressure makes you want to cry...


It takes forever just to get your hair wet!

25. Travel shampoo is laughable — that will last you one wash...if that.


It's such a pain to have to bring your own shampoo and conditioner on vacation, but hotels just never provide enough for your lucious locks.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

10 Of The Best Bath & Body Works Scents Your Nose Will Thank You For

Although favorite scents are often subjective to one's taste, there are still those fragrances that most people can't seem to get enough of.


Working at Bath and Body Works helped me learn a lot about their many different fragrance selections. When things are slow, you literally can just go around and smell everything. My first few days of work, I left with a headache from smelling too many candles and lotions.

Not only did I learn what my favorite scents are, but which ones were popular with everyone else and why. Some make perfect home fragrances while others are perfect as an everyday scent to wear to work or school. After much contemplation and some experience in the industry, these are the fragrances I feel deserve to be named the Top Ten of Bath and Body Works.

10. Vanilla Bean Noel

Vanilla Bean Noel proves to be popular every time it hits the shelves around Christmas time. It is basically a holiday/glorified version of warm vanilla sugar and definitely has a more unique and stronger scent (at least for one that is mainly vanilla).

9. Twilight Woods

Twilight woods is one of the most popular body care scents sold by Bath and Body Works. It is one of Bath and Body Works warmer scents that makes you just want to grab and blanket and cuddle up by a warm fire.

8. Japanese Cherry Blossom

Japanese Cherry Blossom is the oldest body care scent to remain in their signature collection. While other fragrances tend to retire eventually, this one always remains true for us to continually enjoy. There is just something luxurious about this scent that we can't get enough of.

7. Watermelon Lemonade

Watermelon lemonade is the perfect summertime scent, while it has retired as a body care scent, you can still get it in the home care fragrances like candles, room sprays, and hand soaps. Although if you shop their semi-annual sale, you can almost always find the retired body care items brought back out for sale for a limited time.

6. Black Cherry Merlot

Black cherry merlot is strictly a home care fragrance, but it is basically jolly ranchers put into a fragrance and who wouldn't want that?

5. Champagne Toast

Champagne toast is usually only brought out during the semi-annual sale, but since it has proven its popularity, Bath and Body Works has started to incorporate it back into their everyday products such as candles and wallflowers. If you for some reason don't personally like the scent, its packaging and popularity make for a great gift.

4. Sweater Weather

Sweater weather is both strictly a home care scent and a fall scent; it is anticipated year-round by those who are fall scent fanatics. When you smell this in someone's house, you know that fall is right around the corner.

3. Winter Candy Apple

Winter Candy Apple is the icon of Bath and Body Works Christmas fragrances. Once they finally hit the shelves, people stock up on them. And for those who can't afford to pay full price, they just wait for the after Christmas semi-annual sale to get them half off and stock up for the rest of the year.

2. A Thousand Wishes

A thousand wishes has proven to be so popular that it has actually won awards. When I worked at Bath and Body Works, there was about double the amount of a thousand wishes on the shelves compared to the rest of the signature scents, and believe me, there had to be.

1. The Original Forever Red

If there is a scent that Bath and Body Works fans have lost their minds over, it's forever red. When I worked there back in 2017, they decided to retire the scent and sell the last remaining stock during their summer semi-annual sale, and every bit of it got wiped clean. Just recently, they decided to "relaunch" forever red. Basically, the packaging is not as luxurious, but more importantly, people are not pleased with the scent, saying that it is nothing like to original and very faint. So RIP to one of the best scents ever created by bath and body works; you will 'forever' be remembered.
