5 Things People With Long Hair Are Tired Of Hearing + Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Formulate. All opinions are my own. 


I have long hair.

So long, in fact, that I could be the girl from The Ring for Halloween. Or Cousin It.








I like my long hair. I've had long hair for most of my life. But I've found people like to make comments about it. And it's usually the same comments.

Such as:


1. You have so much hair!  I mean, duh. It's on my head. I know.






2. Will you ever cut it? Nope.



3. How long does it take to dry?  I get asked this a lot to the point where I want to have the answer written down in my purse and just silently hand it over. The answer? I air dry, and it can take 3-4 hours.


4. Do you find hair all over your house? Are you calling me a cat? What? (But yes. Sometimes.)



5. How do you take care of all that hair? Uh, just like you take care of YOUR hair, probably.


I make sure to buy hair products that will work with it. I've been a fan of Formulate since trying it for the first time a few months ago.






It helps with the frizz and makes my hair incredibly soft.


Formulate is a company where YOU get to design your shampoo and conditioner. And yes, it is sulfate, preservative, paraben, and cruelty free.


You'll be asked a series of questions, and then your own shampoo and conditioner will be made.




For example, for mine, I picked that I wanted my shampoo and conditioner to help with frizz, mend split ends, have color protection, deep conditioner, and I wanted it to help strengthen my hair. I also talked about what hair type I had.

I also picked my fragrance to be At Dawn, which smells fabulous.


You can check out my profile to see how it works.

So yes, I love my long hair. Nope, I doubt I'll be cutting it for some time.

Because if I did, how on earth could I be the girl from The Ring?






Do you have long or short hair?

  2. I'm 59. Have very long gray hair. I don't color it and I make my own shampoo for it. I also air dry it. My sisters all have short hair they color often and love to give me a hard time about my hair, but I'm an old hippie and long it stays. Yours is indeed gorgeous.

  3. Ha Ha! I have to admit, I definitely said a few of these things to people with long hair!!

  4. I totally feel your pain! Because I work with small children I frequently throw my hair up in a bun. Because many people don't see how long my hair is, the times it is down its like they've seen a baby deer walk for the first time.

  5. I laugh and I'm right, only those who have long hair like us can understand all these problems and what products to use!

  8. I'm sorry but people are so dumb sometimes. Hair is hair no matter the length. I have shoulder length hair and get asked some silly questions.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Well those questions are kinda funny if you ask me. You have a long and lovely hair.

  10. I have shoulder length hair and no I'm not cutting it just because I'm in my late 50's. I love the idea of designing my own shampoo and conditioner and now I can't get that movie The Ring out of my mind. I think I had nightmares after watching it.

  11. I had longer hair at one time but it was getting tangled too much so I decided to go to. Your hair is gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  12. My hair is about the same length as yours these days. I do get a lot of hairs all over the house, but so does everyone. It's just that mine are super long so it looks like more. I tell them one of mine equals three of theirs! Punks. (although Scarlet has really long hair too)

  13. Haha I always have people surprised at how long my hair is as I normally just pull it back. I couldn't imagine having short hair at all either.

    ReplyDelete
  14. First, your hair is gorgeous. Second, I want to do this! My hair is pixie short. I have what is called a boy cut pixie. I have had long hair and I love it too! Right now having short hair works for me. Headed over to learn more. I'm def entering!

  15. I love your hair its so pretty and I don't think you should cut it. I have Medium Length Hair and I can't wait to check out the Shampoo and Conditioner. I love knowing I can make my own Shampoo and chose the scent I want.

  16. Your hair is so amazing! I wish I could grow it as long as yours!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I didn't know your hair was so long! It's really pretty. I think that shampoo sounds really cool too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I used to have really long hair, but due to medical issues it doesn’t grow and it falls out. :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. You are lucky to have such great hair! I never have had much and would be totally jealous of yours...lol!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have long hair too, but I want it a little bit longer. I've tried taking hair, nails skin vitamins, but none of them work that great. My hair is really dry & frizzy. The shampoo & conditioner sound great since you can design them to fit your hair type. I always find red hair balls all over the house, not my hubby or daughter's. So weird.

  23. I had long hair my entire childhood and into middle school. My mom really liked it. As an adult, I keep it about mid length. I remember hearing a lot of those statements as a child.

  24. I'm a little scared to comment because I don't remotely want to say something close to your points there. But, I think it's a personal choice and you look lovely in long hair! !

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those 5 things are so weird to say! I mean your hair looks amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I always wanted long hair but once it gets past my shoulders it starts getting thin. I have thick hair and keep it shoulder length or short because it's easier to fix. Your hair is very pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  27. My hair is shoulder length and my family complains about it shedding all over the house. I just tell them that it is so they can think of me all day.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have long dreadlocks and number 3 is the question I get asked the most...sometim so, it actually gets to me

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your hair is gorgeous. I have mid-length hair (probably some where around shoulder length) I would have never thought to ask some of these questions. Happy I haven't

    ReplyDelete
  30. I actually never tried having a long hair! I always feel that it is high maintenance! but your hair is pretty and still curious to try this product!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You have great hair! I wish mine would get that long. It gets just past my shoulders and I cut it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I can relate with you! I have long hair up to almost my hair. My hair usually takes even more than 4 hours to completely dry.

    ReplyDelete
  33. While I don't have long hair, my wife had really long hair for a while. She got all kinds of weird questions.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My hair is fine, thin and limp. I'd love to find hair care products that were made just for me. Sounds cool! (And it's fun to finally see picture of you!)

    ReplyDelete
  37. How neat that you can "formulate" your own hair care. I always maintain my long hair and so is my daughter, this is something I would like to do.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Such a good idea on air drying! I used to air dry my hair all the time and I felt it was so much more healthy back then. I have gotten used to blowdrying though.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have pretty long hair (mid back) and I find that it does take such a long time to dry. When we go to the pool, everyone's hair is dry long before mine.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I keep it medium length, but I use to have very long straight black hair (before I had kids). Now is kind of curly and get frizzy often. I think I should try your recommendation. I want my hair to feel soft and healthy again.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have naturally long straight hairs I hear all these things one more thing people ask that how do I get time to straighten m hair.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You have lovely hair. I had my long hair cut fairly short a year ago and it's a decision I now regret. It's taking me forever to grow it back!!
