Chris Rock's attempt to create a "comedy documentation" on this most sensitive of issues brings in the sympathetic head-nods and occasional laughs but fails to convey the social historic context of his chosen subject.
Throughout the film, various Black celebrities (Nia Long, Maya Angelou, Ice-t, among others) candidly shares their experiences concerning African-textured hair. Rounding this off is a demonstration of the damaging effects from using sodium-hydroxide based relaxers, as well as an eye-opening journey to India, where Chris Rock goes behind the scenes of the hair trade market. But Mr. Rock also wastes valuable footage in showing a hair show contest - which, in my opinion- adds little to the film.
Sadly, Chris Rock doesn't address the origins of the demonizing term "Good Hair". He also completely fails to mention the most famous pioneer in the entire history of Black hair: Madame C.J. Walker.
