You are using the port a potty and you realize you have to hold your hair so it isnt in the urinal thingie.

You know you are a long hair when:
You clean out your vaccuum bag and theres more hair than dirt in it.

You know you're a longhair when you are sitting at your computer chair with your hair braided, and suddenly your head is jerked backwards due to the fact that there's a CAT hanging from your braid. I don't know who was more freaked out, me or my cat...

When you debate for a long period of time if it is worth washing your hair today. Should I scalp wash, CO, S/C? And then, just put it in an updo and go about your day.

...I remember when there was no debate. I just S/Ced every day. But, then, it dried really quick at that length, too.

When you don't think putting coconut oil in your hair till it's stringy is gross. (I admit it. I put WAY too much oil in last night. First time.)
When you see pictures of people like Dianyla, Physicschick, Elle, Shnee, and Lady Godiva, and go, "Oh, I want hair like that!" And then sit there fantisizing about having hair that dragged on the ground. And your friend's brother (who is watching) laughs and stops saying that your hair is super-long.

Haha this is amusing. I had a friend think that the ACV on my shelf behind my sink (we can't keep this stuff in the communal showers because apparently it causes a hazard for the cleaners) and thought we should do shots of it (probably thinking it was alcohol), then realised it was vinegar. Then of course he wondered why I had vinegar on my shelf with my shampoo and conditioner.

Your friend complains about her hair being dry and full of split ends. Later, you are whingeing about a girl in your corridor who takes uberlong showers, and you say you don't see why anyone should spend more than five or ten minutes, unless they are shaving both their legs (which really isn't necessary daily in a Scottish winter, ergo this girl shouldn't be taking showers upwards of half an hour daily in the shower), and she responds that she takes twenty minutes as she shampoos the length of her hair twice. You say that you rarely shampoo your length, and usually only shampoo your scalp because otherwise it dries out your hair too much. She doesn't get the hint and continues washing all her hair and then cuts several inches off. Her hair's still longer than mine, though :(

It's a hair-down day so you're strutting your stuff to your car while a really cute guy is watching you (yea buddy, I see you checking me out over there...) so you concentrate on being suave and cool. You reach for the door handle to make a neat little step-into-car-with-a-playful-hair-flip maneuver except the wind kicks up, you trip on the car door because your hair is now all in your face from every imaginable direction so you can't see where you're going, you slam down into the seat and practically hit your head on the steering wheel while trying to get all of that hair out of your face. All while fumbling for the keys because you hear said cute guy laughing. :doh:

You pull on a stray hair and it just keeps going and going and going...

You spot a fellow long hair and you each give each other a solemn nod of "Yep, a kindred... 'sup?"

Your braid becomes an extra attack in martial arts class.

Your friends really don't understand why you have so many pics of the back of your head on your myspace page... primarily because you don't know how to explain to them that you frequent a hair forum.

And my DH just rolled his eyes and complained about having to watch a crappy historical movie when he could have been watching baseball.

After taking a walk in the woods with your DH, you find 2 nasty ticks firmly attached to your scalp. You ask the DH to take a tweezers and remove them, and all you can think about is, "I hope he won't pull out any hairs." :rolleyes:

When people ask you how long it takes for you to do your hair.
When you answer that question, no one believes that it didn't take you very long at all to do your hair.

When you take your hair down just to prove that you can redo it fast, and they say, "No, Don't undo it! . . . Oh, you can do that fast."

The other day I made my DH watch about 10 minutes of some historical movie about one of the English queens because I could not keep my eyes off of their up-dos. Gorgeous, gorgeous. And then one of the characters appeared at court with hair that was left down, and I had a fit because I know that they never never did that. (I used to be a bit of a historical hairstyle research freak.) And my DH just rolled his eyes and complained about having to watch a crappy historical movie when he could have been watching baseball.

And you see the actress with her hair down and you say, "That's not enough hair for the updo she was wearing in the other scene."

-when you watch historic-themed movies four times: Once for the hair, once for the costumes, once for the decor and architecture, and once for the plot

-when you measured the bathroom for a small refrigerator

-when more than half of the grocery bill was *not* for food

-when your husband stops calling the bathroom, "the throne room," and starts calling it, "The Shrine to Her Hair."

-when you can pick up your braid and tickle a baby's nose with the tassle . . . and you didn't have to lean closer.

-when no one EVER asks you if you know of a good hair-dresser

-when you carefully save your shed hairs and gather them into tassles.

-when you put a pillow behind your back in the car, so your hair doesn't brush the headrest.

...when, after a self-trim, you ask your SO to check the evenness and he comments, "you know, when most people cut their hair, you can tell a difference in length."

- You finish teaching a class and find that the lower part of your braid/ponytail has gone grey while you were facing the class (chalk dust)
- You can't wear your hair down for a performance because you'd be mortified if it got caught in the instrument keys
- You know it CAN get stuck on your instrument because it HAPPENED in the dress rehearsal
- You whack yourself with your braid in martial arts class (this is Stage I)
- You whack someone else with your braid in MA class (Stage II)
- You're secretly pissed off that your fiance' has much thicker hair than you, even though you both shed prodigiously

And to the posters who said stuff like 'you freak out about the bug in the shower, but it's your hair," "gets caught in doors," and anything about having to keep track of its physical location for your personal comfort and safety: AMEN!

This one made me laugh because I thought exactly the same thing! At least she grew it long again :) I'm actually having a similar poutfest about Reese Witherspoon's new haircut. I know, I know, as long as she's happy . . . but her long hair with bangs was so perfect!

When you have tailbone length hair, but comment to your mother that you don't have enough hair to make a decent braided bun/log roll/infinity bun/insert name of style that you can't do yet here.

When you hunt for old pictures that show how long your hair was, and can only find ones where your hair was in double braids. Part of you is proud that you were taking care of your hair even then, and part is annoyed that there are no length shots from the back.

- You have separate hair routines for regular public bathrooms (wrap around neck and then hold in left hand) and for pit toilets (put it up securely with whatever you can find).
- You can put your hair up in a bun without anything to hold it there except itself.
- You have ever looked in your pen/pencil cup for something to secure your hair.
- You no longer worry about sitting on your hair; you worry about other people sitting on your hair.
- You automatically gather your hair and hold it out of the way when fastening your seat belt in a car.
- You have ever fastened your hair in the seat belt fastener and not noticed until turning your head when checking to make a turn while driving.
- You have ever gotten into a car with your hair loose and sat on it on both sides and the back and wondered how to get it all free without rubbing it too much against the seat of the car.
- You have worn your hair up so much that when you leave it down you forget about all of the trouble that it can get itself into (caught in doors, windows, other people's clothing fasteners, random small children).
- You don't understand people who think that a braid will keep hair from getting into trouble.
- You don't understand people who think that you should have short hair since "it is always up in one of those bun things".
- Small children actually avoid your hair after getting their hands so thorougly tangled in it that it took two people and several minutes to remove them from it.

When you're cleaning the toilet and realize you shouldn't have worn a braid while doing that job!

When you wash once a week and then you find yourself extra protective of juice splatters or messy kid hands during the first part of the week with clean hair! "Don't you kiss my head until you wipe off your mouth!" LOL

When you find that you like your hair better midweek because it tangles less and feels softer silkier and hate wash day just because you lose the manageability for a couple days!
