You Know You Have Long Hair When…

  • You have to make sure your hair is out of the way before sitting on the toilet.
  • Your hair can sit in your lap when you sit down.
  • You buy barrettes and hair clips based on their ability to hold up weight rather than their appearance.
  • You’ve ever looked at a hairnet or cage and thought, “My hair won’t fit in that.”
  • You’ve ever been horrified at a stylist’s interpretation of, “Just take off the split ends.”
  • You’ve ever used half a bottle of condition at a time. (Applies particularly to curlies.)
  • It takes more than two boxes of hair dye to cover your hair.
  • You can actually braid your braids together.
  • You can use your own hair to dress up as Princess Leia.
  • Your hair can become a presence of its own on rainy days.

    Happens way too often to me, and my hair isn’t even that long. Usually I don’t know it until my head gets jerked back as I’m walking away. :0)

    1. I’m more likely to shut my hair in the door as I’m getting in the car. Or catch it in the seat belt stuff. Or have it grabbed accidentally by the person getting in behind me.
