1. Brushes are basically the devil.
2. You could never get away with murder. (You'd shed all over the crime scene.)
3. You might find a bobby pin in your hair six days and two showers after you last remember wearing a bobby pin in your hair.

5. Because, whoof, can you imagine drying that s**t every day?
6. Most of your trust issues stem from the fact that your hairdresser moved to another city.
7. You've never been able to figure our your natural part.

14. Baby hairs.
15. The constant fear of being caught without a hair tie.
16. The wholly terrifying idea of a man running his fingers through your hair.

18. The fact that you'll never be able to pull off bangs (and that you had to burn all pictures from 1992 when you tried).
