Go to the salon without a hairdresser commenting on how thick your hair is.

1. You can't enjoy summer without suffering from a ridiculous amount of hair sweat.

Hairdresser had a big job after a day of sweating in riot kit / helmet hair.. Sweat and the mane do not got well..

2. And you can't wash your hair without leaving a furry friend behind.

3. You can't throw on a hat without struggling to fit it over your gigantic hair.

Rule #1 if you have curly puffy hair, never wear beanies.. It won't fit.

And if you do manage to fit it on, it's very unlikely that it will stay on.

4. And you can't own any hairbands that don't look like this.

Because every hairband needs to be stretched to the appropriate size for your mane.

5. You can't put sunglasses on your head without getting them tangled in your hair somehow.

6. And you have the same problem with brushes.

7. As well as your own bloody hairbands.

8. You can't go to the salon without a hairdresser commenting on how thick your hair is.

You need to take at least half a day out to get that shit done.

23. You absolutely will not be able to straighten your hair in less than an hour.

Try an entire day.

25. But most importantly, you can't complain too much because while it can definitely be a pain, you know some people would kill to have the marvellous mane that you have.
