    30 Struggles Anyone With Long Hair Understands

    Long hair, don't care (unless a zipper is involved).

    1. Your "messy bun" either looks like a small animal resting on your head...

    Is your bun suppose to be half the size of your head or? #longhairproblems

    4. And, conversely, everything — mostly food — gets stuck in your hair.

    5. You know how some girls can rest their sunglasses on top of their heads, like it's no big deal? You, not so much.

    6. You've tried to get out of a car only to be jerked back by this.

    7. And good luck enjoying nature.

    was having a lovely walk with @ChloeCook9 earlier until she goes and gets her hair stuck in a tree

    10. You wonder why you even bother making your hair look good if you're going to be anywhere outdoors.

    11. A good chunk of your day is spent tugging your hair out from under bag straps, or scarves, or collars.

    This is what happens when its windy and you try to put your bag and backpack on with long hair.

    14. The perfect hair tie is an elusive creature, but when you find one it will never, ever leave your side.

    15. When one of those miraculous few finally snaps, well, GOOD LUCK.

    It's always so sad when your hair tie finally gives out We've been through so much together #longhairproblems

    17. Your hair overwhelms any other fashion statement you're trying to make.

    18. You've yet to figure out a way to put your hair up before a workout and actually KEEP it up.

    Can we just take a moment and discuss wtf happened to my hair during that workout....

    19. You have to gingerly lay your hair across your bed, lest you lie down on it and then feel trapped whenever you try to move your head.

    20. If you don't, you risk either suffocation or just massive, messy knots.

    21. Drying/curling/straightening your hair takes so long (and tires your arms out so much) that you're usually working an "I woke up like this" look.

    22. You've gone to take your hair down from a bun to get in the shower and realized your hair was still damp from your last shower.

    23. You worry about staying with friends or going to hotels because you know their wimpy towels won't be enough.

    (Or — LOLLLLL — when they just offer you one towel.)

    24. You have to restock shampoo and conditioner..... a lot.

    My dad told me I go through too much shampoo and conditioner... So he bought me these #woah

    25. You and these are VERY well-acquainted.

    26. You, for a split second, think these little buddies are giant spiders whenever you take your clothes out of the dryer.

    27. You're forever feeling phantom hairs on your body, or wondering if that's a bug crawling on your skin.

    28. You've been desensitized to this sight for a looooong time.

    Never put long hAir in a messy bun bc

    29. You've definitely apologized to someone for handing them something and realizing some strands of your hair were on it.

    30. And you're constantly explaining to others that despite all the hassle, it's still totally worth it.
