I don’t know about you but I’m completely excited and can’t wait to see Chris Rock’s comical but yet informative documentary Good Hair. The idea stemmed from when one of his daughters asked the puzzling question why she didn’t have good hair. This quandary brought me back to my own childhood when I loathed the process of getting my hair washed and styled. I was tortured every other week when my mama came into the bathroom with the pot to wash my hair in the tub. Then I was further punished when she had to style it after it was washed. My mama broke so many combs in my head which was when I longed for the relaxed tresses otherwise known today as “the creamy crack.” Its taken me over 20 years to appreciate the thickness and strength of my hair; I celebrate it’s beauty everyday when sporting my TWA. Looking forward to being enlightened and entertained with Chris Rock’s inquiry with black women about their hair on October 23rd 9th.
