I know I’m not the only one anxiously awaiting the premiere of the “Good Hair” documentary done by Chris Rock that was the award winner for the Sundance Film Festival of 2009. The African-American culture has and will always have a struggle with HAIR. No matter if its long, straight, nappy, or curly, there will alway be the question as to “What is Good hair?”
I do NOT want to simply answer this question for you or rant on about my opinions yet because I realize that I have done plenty of blogs, outbursts, and discussion on “Good Hair” but I want to see what angles Chris Rock is going to take on this situation. I hope that he doesnt just gear to the creamy-crack users but always the black women with natural hair as well. How do women with natural hair feel about “good hair”? How is it defined to them? and why did they choose to stay/ or go natural?
I came across a youtuber by the name of leobody05 and she gives her opinion, which I have mad respect for,from already viewing the movie:
Now’s a good time to give my definition of Good Hair:Good Hair is hair that is healthy and well taken care of. Typically good hair is categorized as hair free of damage and split-ins. It is not hair that is just long and straight, because most of the time, a persons hair that is super long is not HEALTHY i.e split ins, and uneven.
