Chris Rock, Good Hair



Time and time again, we as black women and we, as a black community have addressed this mystique--"Good Hair." It's a popular, yet controversial topic. It always has been and always will be, if ignorance persists. As you can guess, I have never bought into this blurred gaze of "Good Hair" and "Bad Hair." It's just another age old myth that divides us as black people, and frankly, it's tired. And now, Comedian/Actor, Chris Rock is getting his hands tangled in his new documentary, Good Hair. For the film, Chris traveled around the world from Harlem to India, for about two years, delving into the obsession that the black community has with hair, specifically us black girls. Chris even got actresses Nia Long and Raven Symone, as well as comedian, Paul Mooney along with others on board for the film. There's no word yet on when the film will be released, but the film did grab an award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, so there's no telling what the future may hold. I can't wait!

Here's a sneak peak.

    It reveals how the Koreans have taken over the Black Hair Biz, and what some African American’s are doing to take it back.
