18 Problems Only Women with Thin Hair Understand

If you’ve ever wished you had thin hair… well, shame on you.

Those of us who lack in the luscious locks department know what it means to be left out of every hair trend in history, have your hair fall flat before you’ve even left your bathroom, and somehow end up with grimier hair after shampooing. You’re of the thin hair persuasion, and suffer from major hair envy every time an Herbal Essences commercial strikes.

Here are 18 things only women with thin hair understand:
