Film: Good Hair

I remember reading a book in my final year of uni about what was "good hair" amongst women of colour. There are two different ends of the divide-those who feel that having straight hair is beautiul and those who would rather have the what they were born with because changing your hair would mean you wre conforming to a "white notion of beauty".

Personally having my hair "relaxed" is a choice I make so that I can manage my hair. Whatever our reasons I think we should consider that maybe there is more to straightening hair than we thought-who knew hair could be so "conscious".

Anyways Chris Rocks film "good hair" takes a light/comedic look at the good hair debate amongst african americans.
