What defines ‘Good Hair’? Chris Rock explores this sociological phenomenon from the African-American point of view with interesting results in his new movie, and we’ve got a first look! In theaters October 9, ‘Good Hair’ finds Rock traveling all across America and even to India to find out why we do what we do to look our best — or stand out from the crowd. Rock visits beauty salons, barbershops, conventions, scientific laboratories and Indian temples to explore the way hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships and self-esteem of the black community.
Nia Long, Meagan Good, Raven Symone, Lauren London, Salt n’ Pepa, Eve and many more all share their candid points of view for this thought provoking expose, prompted by Rock’s 5-year old daughter, Lola, who asked him, “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?”
