What Is “Good Hair?”

October 3, 2009

“Never touch a black woman’s hair!”
Comedian Chris Rock’s documentary “Good Hair” is coming to theaters October 9 and is causing quite a stir. Rock got the idea after his daughter approached him and asked, “daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?”
Hair is an important element in the black community, and to many African Americans (both men & women) when it comes to hair, “the straighter, the greater.” Perms, relaxers, weaves, tracks, extensions, and braids have become essential to achieving the desired look.
Monica Williams, 21, is a black woman and prefers to keep her hair straightened, using perms to make it more manageable and easier to care for.
