Sometimes a hashtag pops up on Twitter that so many people can relate to that it becomes a full on movement—especially when it comes to Black Twitter. That's exactly what happened when Black women began remembering the pain and suffering they went through at the salon, leading to some hilarious tweets and memes about #BlackSalonProblems.
#BlackSalonProblems took Twitter by storm and the more than 150,000 tweets using the hashtag perfectly described the pain and suffering that women endure on behalf of their hair, from spending all day at the salon to seeing that hot comb come for your edges:
When you schedule an 8 a.m. appointment &don't get out until 8 p.m. b/c your beautician has scheduled 3 other people too #blacksalonproblems— ShakariSBriggs (@ShakariSBriggs) May 25, 2016
men go to the barbershop and chill. they don't come out with war wounds, deferred dreams and entire days just gone #blacksalonproblems— AmeriKraut (@AmeriKraut) May 26, 2016
While others just expressed the feeling of walking in, not knowing what you want, and not knowing how it's going to come out, not to mention the inescapable feeling that the result is not even what you wanted in the first place!
But mostly ladies just talked about the pain. The horrible, excruciating, burning pain.
So there you have it, those are some of the best, but they are in no way the only hilarious memes making their way around the Internet.
Women have been enduring the pain for too long, and thanks to Black Twitter, we finally have a chance to air out our grievances. Even if it’s just to one another.
