The comedian Chris Rock journeys through the US talking to African American women about their striving for “good hair”. Hair is a multi-billion dollar business – from hugely expensive real hair weaves to the chemical straightener many black women use.
Rock was provoked into exploring the phenomenon when his young daughter asked, “Daddy, why don’t I have good hair?”
The pressure on black women to conform to a European stereotype of long, straight hair still looms large.
