Black hair is bold, beautiful and uniquely our own. While we love our hair and all of the versatility that comes with it, we can't deny the hilarious hair struggles we have to endure from time to time. Simple tasks like getting a touch-up at the salon or raking a comb through becomes an hours-long mission that, frankly, leaves us emotionally exhausted. And don't get us started on the time it takes to install a new style! It's pretty much the norm for hair appointments to start before lunchtime and end way past dinner.
In their post, "29 Tweets About Hair That Will Make Black Girls Laugh Way Harder Than They Should," Buzzfeed rounded up the funniest--and realest--tweets about the trials and tribulations of having Black hair. While we can't help but laugh at the ridiculousness of it all, we can't help but nod at each one in agreement--and silently cry.
Well, this is awkward.

The wig that got away...
If my wig fell off in public, I would leave it and just start running. I would not stop running till I get to heaven.

It might be a little too tight.

The swtich-up is real.
I moved to one babe one night.
I moved to another the next night.
They turned out to be the same girl.
She just switched wigs.
