23 Problems Every Girl with Long Hair Can Relate To

Long hair—it’s fun to have, but can seriously be a b*tch to care for. Your locks might be the envy of your short-haired friends, but you know that having long hair isn’t as care-free as your Instagram might suggest. Here are 23 #LongHairProblems that are relatable AF.

Purses, backpacks, chairs, car doors, you name it. It’s like our long hair is attracted to everything. And, yes, it’s painful.

Unless you want to lay directly on it and end up tearing out your scalp.
