    The 17 Worst Parts Of Having Fine Hair

    Two words: knots and knots.

    1. Even the slightest breeze will leave your hair full of impossible-to-brush-out knots.

    Knots that then tie themselves into even smaller, tighter knots.

    2. No matter what you try, it's impossible to build up any volume.

    Most people take it for granted, but they don't know what it's like to have totally lifeless hair.

    3. And when you do try, by combing your hair dry, for instance, you just end up looking like a poodle.

    4. Even when you grow up it, it never feels like you've got enough hair to pull off any of the more fashionable styles.

    Sure, you've grown up, but you've still got the same hair you've had since you were a toddler.

    5. No hair style lasts very long on your head.

    You've tried...

    6. And you avoid buns altogether because the results can be PAINFUL.

    7. Need proof that it's possible to make your hair look even thinner than it is? Try bleaching it!

    If it doesn't become too brittle and literally break off your head, that is.

    8. Your whole life is spent dealing with oily hair.

    There's never been a day when it didn't feel like your hair needed to be washed.

    9. Somehow "frizz" is not a powerful enough term to describe the suffering the top of your head goes through.

    The English language has yet to come up with a term to truly describe this mess.

    10. Ponytails make you look like you're going bald.

    In your head, you're a Sméagol. In real life, you're a Gollum. (Sorry.)

    12. You cry a little bit inside for each one of your hairs that fall out.

    Which means you're crying inside A TON. RIP, little buddies.

    13. Every hot new hair products that promises more volume just makes it look like you've gone three weeks without washing your hair.

    No matter what you try, it feels like you've got salad dressing on your head.

    14. Those little hair ties are about three times larger than they need to be for your hair.

    Every time you put your hair up, you find yourself doubling over the hair tie again and again and again. It actually hurts!

    15. It feels like your hair just doesn't grow!

    16. All of your hair products say "volume" somewhere on them.

    Just use it and pray.

    17. And no matter what you try... no matter what you do... at the end of the day, this ALWAYS happens to you.
