Yes, it's a documentary by Chris Rock. He looks into the various hair products used by black women and some men. He looks at it from a father's perspective because one of his daughters asked why she didn't have "good hair."

Is it a movie, that I can rent or buy?

Quoting LoriLou75:

And chemicals. You should watch Good Hair. It is very informative.

I don't wear a weave lol. I flat iron my hair some days and others I go curly. Some days I really wish I could wash my hair and blow dry it straight but I really don't mind my hair.

I don't wear weaves but I have a Cousin who has long beautiful hair and she loves her weaves. Her hair is just a pain to maintain with a weave she gets to change her look every week different color different hair
cut. I don't have have a problem with weaves just make sure you got a good perm cause thats just tacky. Nappy and weave don't mix.

Pretty much this and natural hair is NOT hard to grow.

This...
You are taught from a young age that straight hair is good hair. Your parents were taught that too. Hard to break that cycle.


Quoting LilGina:

because society says only straight long hair is pretty.

That is their official website. I can't make it clicky, I'm.on.my phone.


Quoting happymommy1105:

Hold.on I will get you a link to their website.



While i am.white, my child will be half black and I believe that part of being a good mom is learning how to properly care for your child.

If this baby is a girl, I am going to have her hair "sister locked" as soon as she is old enough. I think its pretty and easier to manage. Plus its not chemicals to damage their hair. It's just their natural hair.

What's that?

how is locking their hair learning how to take care of it? I could never do that to my child personally that is something they would decided on their own.

Your daughter will appreciate you for educating yourself. Seriously my mom was useless. She would just Afro my hair and I was picked on until I was old enough to buy my own hair products which means old enough to work.

3 moms liked this

Why do white woman go tanning? Why do white woman get lip injections? Why do white woman get botox? I could go on and on. The main answer is because of what society thinks is "pretty" and its sad

None of my black friends wear weaves, or they are just really good weaves, and I can't tell.
