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.

Fans Think This Photo Of Barbie Is Proof She’s An Out And Proud Lesbian

Mattel/ Instagram

The fact that the early days of Barbie were not quite so inclusive to all of us comes as no surprise. The blonde, impossibly figured doll with a penchant for similar-looking friends is a far cry away from the Barbie of today who has friends of all shapes, races, sizes, sexual identities, and abilities. Even better, today’s Barbie crew includes dolls who give queer children a broader playgound for their imagination.

Recently, Barbie has added a new addition to her friend group whose bringing more power to her LGTBQ fans.

Social media has dubbed the LGBTQ positive Aimee Song doll Barbie‘s girlfriend.

Twitter’s latest excitement is about a theory that Barbie and Aimee Song are dating. Photos of Mattel’s doll Aimee Song doll show her wearing a “Love Wins” T-shirt that supports LGBTQ+ rights. The Mattel doll was inspired by fashion blogger Aimee Song and recently caught renewed attention in a viral post shared to Twitter.

The “Love Wins” photos are only now going viral but were actually released in November 2017.

The photos of Barbie and the Aimee doll were shared to Twitter last Monday by user @kissevermore and now has Twitter debating whether the two are dating.

The pictures of Barbie and Aimee show the two dolls eating avocado toast. petting a dog, and smiling at each other. The images have fans questioning when Barbie came out and how she managed to nail a hot girlfriend before they did.

Even REAL Aimee Song weighed in on the images to confirm the relationship.

“I am the girlfriend,” she tweeted with a photo of herself and the Aimee Song doll. 

While Mattel has yet to officially identify Barbie as a lesbian, the original Instagram posts related to the Love Wins Barbies are proof that she is at least an ally.

Confirmed or not, true or not, one of the best parts of Barbie is that she is meant to be whoever her fans want her to be.
