From reading the title y'all probably have a visual of a spider caught in long hair....and if you didn't before, I bet you do now! That's not at all the point of this post.
I have long hair...it's down to my butt. It's very thick...yet it doesn't look thick. Each hair strand is almost the same strength as dental floss....I have actually used my hair to floss my teeth, when I couldn't find any.
Here's where spiders come into it....having a lot of hair makes it difficult to keep track of every strand....they like to go off on their own sometimes. I cannot begin to count the number of times I've seen a hair out of the corner of my eye or had a strand tickle my arm and jumped outta my skin thinking it was a spider! When I started growing my hair out I was constantly jumping cuz I wasn't used to seeing my hair on my shoulder...now I'm jumping cuz I have spiders tickling my butt, the back of my arms, etc.....can you tell I HATE spiders?
So, you're wondering, "why is she posting about this now, right?" Cuz I had a spider walking down the back of my arm!! For once....meaning the very first time EVER....I thought, "oh, it's just my hair!" NOPE!! It was a spider!!! ACK!!!
