Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Good Hair [DVD] (DVD)
For me, this excellent, comical and insightful documentary showed me just how Black people, especially Black women, are effected by European beauty standards in regards to hair. It is a great shame that so many women of African descent do not have any pride in their own beautiful natural curly hair.
The only thing that could have made this documentary better would have been to have had the views of Black women who reject the notion of 'good hair' only being of the Caucasian kind!
To get some understanding of the underlying psychological factors driving Black women to abandon their natural look I would recommend an excellent book I purchased on Amazon a while ago title 'Black skin, White masks' by the eminent medical psychiatrist Frantz Fanon.
