Don’t get me wrong. I love having long hair! With long hair comes many challenges though. As you may know, or assume, it can be a lot of upkeep! That isn’t the only obstacle I’ve experienced having long hair. Here is a list of all of the things you deal with when you have long hair (and yes I have experienced them all personally).
It gets stuck in your laptop – Yup. That happened. I closed my hair in my laptop, went to set the laptop down, and had a rude awakening to the fact it was stuck.
It gets in your food – I get my hair in my food all of the time. It would probably be a good idea to carry a hair tie with me.
You accidentally eat it – I’ve had way too many meals where my hair was a side dish. I start eating a big old fork full of spaghetti and learn there is hair, still attached, mixed in with my pasta. Yuck.
It gets tucked into your skirt – I’ve had this happen several times when getting dressed. I pull my skirt up, tuck in my shirt, raise my head to realize that my hair is inside of my skirt. Oops!
It gets stuck under your armpits when sweaty – I love wearing my hair down for concerts. Swinging my hair around is just so fun! The problem comes when it gets stuck under my armpits. That is not fun and can be very awkward.
Cuddling can be tricky – When cuddling my hair always winds up in a bad spot. Under Fletch, in his mouth or ears, stuck under me; it is just not a good time. I have to twist my hair and tuck it behind my head to keep it out of the way.
Shedding – I mean there is hair all over!! I can’t tell my husband it is his because, well, it is obviously isn’t.
Getting it stuck in your car – I close the door, attempt to walk away and get pulled back. OUCH! I closed my hair in the door… again.
Zipping it in your clothes – Far too often I get my hair zipped up in my clothes. Again, I think I need to get into the habit of carrying a hair tie with me so I stop causing myself pain.
There are challenges for most hair styles but it is the long hair that I have the most problems with. I don’t plan on cutting my hair anytime soon but I think it would be understandable if I decided to chop it off.
What hair challenges do you have?
