14 Struggles Only Girls with Long Hair Understand

My long locks are one of my favorite accessories. I couldn’t even tell you the last time I had my hair cut above my boobs, and the thought of myself rocking a bob makes me cringe. Although I do love my long hair, there are plenty of times when it makes me want to pull a Britney Spears circa 2007. I know all you other long haired ladies can relate to these struggles:

1. Only being able to use thick hair ties

2. Finding your hair everywhere

3. Getting your hair caught under your backpack/purse strap 

4. Brushing your hair is an arm workout

5. Going through bottles of shampoo and conditioner like it’s your job

6. Getting your hair stuck under your armpits when you’re sweaty

7. Sticky lip gloss is your worst enemy

8. The knots... all the knots

9. Wondering everyday how you’re not already bald

10. Driving with all the windows down is a disaster

11. Your messy bun always looks like a bird’s nest on top of your head

12. Having a million people say “OMG your hair is so long! When was the last time you got a haircut?!”

13. Not being able to wear sunglasses on your head without them getting stuck in your hair

14. Accidentally whipping anyone in the face who’s standing within two feet of you
