Didn’t all of us dream, wish, pray for Rapunzel like long, thick hair, hated our parents when they got us those Bobs when we were younger and envied that young cousin of her lustrous long manes? Looks like our prayers were answered and we have a head full of long, thick hair, only that it came with a big box of problems too. If you too have long hair, you will identify with these daily struggles easily.Wind in her hair may sound romantic in books, but in reality it can be a real pain and leave you with tangled, messy hair that can scare every second person you meet.
There is always something or the other stuck in your hair and people are always pointing it out
Forget sexy back designs on dresses and tops, your ample mane will always cover it up for you
Hair dryers mean nothing to you, as your long tresses only take probably a few hours to dry
Forgetting your hair can result in a catastrophe, the day is officially ruined
You need to untie and tie your hair only thousand times a day
Detangling your hair becomes the only rigorous arm workout you will ever do
Lip gloss equals torment for you
Blocked drains and hair everywhere is your daily struggle, you only lose about what, a thousand strands a day. Of course the fear of turning bald always looms large
Let’s not even talk the amount of money you spend on oils, shampoos, conditioners, serums, mousse and what not- all for your mane.
Yes the struggle is real, but hey admit it, don’t you just love when all those compliments start pouring in about your gorgeous mane, or the time your beautiful long hair has served as the best-pick-me-up for your tired face or covered your not-so-sharp jawline, or even better covered your face from both sides and let you have that sneaky nap at work!
So while we feel you and the pains of having long beautiful hair, let’s not forget to count the blessings either.
