Watch Good Hair
- 1 hr 36 min
A documentary hosted and narrated by comedian Chris Rock. This documentary was inspired by Chris' daughter when she approached her father and asked him, "Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" This question peaked Chris' interest and wonders why she would ask such a question. It starts him on the path of finding out about black women and their relationship with their hair. In this film, Chris delves into the world of beauty salons, hair styling battles, scientific labs, and Indian temples. All of this in order to explore how and why hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of the black community. Chris has a natural, and of course hilarious way of being able to get tough answers from anyone. Chris soon learns that "good hair" often means, for many black women, simply means having hair that is healthy, strong and abundant. However, a lot of them want it to be straight as well, even if it is not naturally so. Chris delves deeper and tries to find out how black woman and feel confident and love the hair they have.
