I’ve always thought I was missing that gene most girls have that enable them to style their hair. I don’t hate my hair, I just don’t know what to do with it most of the time; and to be fair, I probably wish for different hair more often than I should. Well, that all changed after watching Good Hair.
When Chris Rock’s daughter came home upset that she didn’t have “good hair” his mission became clear, and he set out to investigate how this notion had entered her young mind. The result is a brilliant documentary that is hilariously funny, honest, and just plain astonishing. (With a 94% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes!)
I loved watching Chris go from a hair show in Atlanta, to barbershops and salons across the country, and even to an Indian temple half-way around the world. His candid conversations throughout the movie are interesting and entertaining, and when you’re not laughing out loud you’ll be shaking your head in disbelief. I walked away with a whole new appreciate for what women all over the world will do with and for their hair.
Check out the trailer.
