I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my long hair for as long as I can remember. There was only one time where our relationship turned ugly. It’s been four years since “the incident.” I couldn’t handle it anymore and chopped off all my hair.
For anyone out there with long hair, I feel you. Here are the everyday struggles of what it’s like to have long hair.
“You did this to yourself. YOU DID THIS TO YOURSELF.” – my inner monologue.
Just a lot of swearing at yourself inside while this happens.
2. When you hate yourself even more because now you don’t have something to tie your hair back with when you’re eating.
First of all, is this not the cutest picture ever?
Second of all, don’t you hate eating with one hand holding the utensil and the other one holding your hair back?
3. When your hair gets caught in literally everything.
It gets caught on your backpack strap or your purse or worse…THE DREADED ZIPPER. You’re doing this all while having the same expression as Heidi where you’re trying to act like everything’s okay, but inside you’re internally screaming.
And everybody might hate you for using all the hot water, but whatever! It literally takes forever for you just to shampoo your hair!
5. When it takes a lifetime for your hair to air dry.
The worst is when you go to bed with wet hair and wake up with…DAMP HAIR. It takes a good 12 hours for your hair to air dry completely.
