Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful haaair!!

August 27, 2008 § 4 Comments

My hair as gotten really long, about midway down my back. Good old pre-natals! (which I have continued, BTW, best keep my body in condition for next time, plus my nails and hair ROCK.) But now I am experiencing some weird problems with all this hair. Like, getting tangled in it in the middle of the night. No lie. I have almost strangled myself turning over in bed, or gotten totally tangled up around my hands or arms.

Also, if i put it up in a ponytail, it is so heavy that it pulls and hurts my head. Sheesh. But i don’t want to cut it– it’s taken me forever to grow it out! I’m gonna have to start braiding it before bed now, and also figure out a way to keep it off my neck and back without giving myself a face-lift.

Does anyone out there have long hair and if so, how do you deal with it?

Addendum: I almost always keep my hair covered with bandannas or other head coverings, if that makes a difference.

    Wow– you must have really thick hair. My hair is down to the middle of my back and I’ve don’t think I’ve ever recalled being in a self-strangulation situation. =) Sure it ends up all over the place– but I barely feel it– probably because it’s fine?

    Actually, mine is pretty fine too, but curly and unruly. It has a mind of its own!
    It’s gotten thicker since I started the Synthriod (the hypothyroidism made my hair really thin.) Now that it’s growing back in, and the pre-natals have made it stronger, there’s just a lot more of it hanging around.

    Mine is probably just a couple inches shorter than yours and I have to keep it in a ponytail at night or it strangles me.
    When I’m sleeping my hair goes in ‘the blob’. It’s a mussy bun type thing that basically sits on top of my head. It’s high enough up that it doesn’t pull and give me a headache. It looks absolutely ridiculous, but if you can get the bun-thing high enough, the headaches stay away.
    My ‘dealing with it’ though is gonna be to get it cut. It’s just too hot to have it this long.

    Wow, I’ve had pretty long hair, but never really gotten tangled in it… o.o
