Short Hair is Better Than Long Hair

Author description: Akhila
Class: 4A
Favorite Hobbies: Dancing, Skating

I think short hair is better than long hair because short hair is much more manageable. It’s easy to wash and when you’re spinning or running it doesn’t flick your face. You don’t have to keep tying it up after taking a bath and when you’re playing games with your friends, you don’t need to keep fixing it and when you’re playing kabaddi, it doesn’t get as dirty. You don’t sweat around your neck too . Short hair is also easy to fit under shower caps. This is why I think short hair is much better than long hair.
