Good Hair

Good Hair
SweetM, a CurlyNikki reader, hipped me to Chris Rock’s brand new documentary that will explore the idea of ‘good hair’. I’m a huge Rock fan, and I’m sure he’ll do it justice. Apparently, he takes a very serious (but witty of course) look at our identity issues, and why some Black women equate long, flowing hair with beauty. It will be debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.

Here’s the description:

“When
Chris Rock’s daughter, Lola, came up to him crying and asked, “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?” the bewildered comic committed himself to search the ends of the earth and the depths of black culture to find out who had put that question into his little girl’s head!”

    I think it’s great that he is doing this for his daughter. If done right, I’m sure it will help a lot of other people in the process.

    I agree this will be very interesting… and interesting that he would be the mainstream person to take on this topic.

    Very interesting that a man would explore this topic.

    I’m totally ready for this movie. I’m a little nervous about him putting our business on front street, but this is a subject that needs the attention.

    I’ve been natural for almost a year. Prior to that, I always had shoulder-length hair and I kept it that way because I’m a dark-skinned black woman and most people would openly tell me that they didn’t think that dark-skinned women could grow long hair. I thought that I was proving them wrong, but I realized that I was hiding behind my relaxed hair.

    Going natural has changed all of that and helped changed my beauty paradigm. So, I hope that this movie sheds some light and opens some minds about hair.

    I’m natural, but I have to admit, I am a little afraid of him outing us.

    I’ve seen the preview and it sure is awesome that someone is going to shed some light on this closeted topic. Plus, Chris Rock’s humorous character will add a not so serious touch to a very serious subject.

    Btw, he should now convince his wife that wearing her natural hair is beautiful.
