Why The 90s Was The Worst Decade For Latina Hair

If you’ve never had hair issues (I’m lookin’ at you Becky with the good hair), then go on and get out of here right quick because the rest of us are going to commiserate about some hair fails we’ve all been through. Like…


When you choose sleep over doing your hair in the morning.

Then you remember that you have curly hair and there are consequences to sleeping in. Sigh.


And brushing your hair isn’t always the answer.

Sometimes brushing makes the situation worse.


Then there is the whole bun dependency issue that so many of us go through.

It’s a good option, but even J.Lo gives the chongo a rest now and then.

You know you’ve got a problem if you are constantly debating curls vs. chongo.


And remember when you where learning how to use a curling iron?

Mom FLIPPED because she thought it was a hickey.


Releasing these things was literally the best feeling in the world.

And the head massage you gave yourself after wearing these was like aaaaaaah.

You’ve tried to save money by going to your neighbor’s salon.

And you realized you get what you pay for. Never again.


Let’s not even talk about the time you decided to cut your own bangs.

Or when mom used the kitchen scissors to give you a trim.


Or what about the time you tried going blond because if Jessica Alba can do it, then surely you can too, right?

Pero, you came out looking more like a naranja with black eyebrows. At least your eyebrows were on point, though.


And spring break anywhere that’s humid is a no go.

You learned your lesson that one year you went to Cancún and your hair went bonkers on you.


The worst is when your hair looks great and some fool suggests you go swimming.

As if?! You’ll sit by the pool and sunbathe maybe, but nobody better be splashing anywhere near you.
