Have you been following #blackgirlproblems? Because we’ve got a few hilarious reasons why you should be.

Getting A Good Night’s Sleep

Because every black woman is born with a sixth sense that wakes her up when her scarf falls off in the middle of the night.


Although as far as problems go, “too much cute to fit in one pic” isn’t a terrible problem to have.

Childhood In General

All you can do is wait until your next birthday and try to negotiate down to one less braid.

Hair Ties

We can go ahead and add combs, brushes and picks to the list too.

Gym Problems

The workout-regularly-while-staying-cute struggle is real.

This Part of Getting Braids

We can feel her throbbing scalp from here.

Bed Time

So sleepy. Someone help.

Fly Aways

Check your head first, laugh later.

Diction Problems

One day they’ll understand… right?

Interracial Hair Relations

Anyone know where we can get this printed on a t-shirt?

Time In The Hair Salon

And that doesn’t even include those hours your stylist forgot about you while you cooked under the dryer.

Umbrella Problems

“Rain, rain, go away I don’t have time to sit in the salon another day.”

Sunday Evenings

Raise your hands if you’ve been accidentally waterboarded before you knew what it was.



Because “one size fits all” rarely takes afros or full-head sew ins into account.

School Pictures

Prepare for the “didn’t we already talk about playing so hard” lecture in four to six weeks.
