Throughout history hair has played an important role in African American culture. In this funny and entertaining documentary Chris Rock explores the wonders of African-American hairstyles by traveling the country to find out how Black Americans define ‘good hair’ and to shed some light on the industry behind Black hair. Rock talks to ordinary people and celebrities (for example, Nia Long and Maya Angelou), visits a barber shop, a hair show, a factory that produces chemical hair relaxers, and India known for its hair trading industry. Watch the trailer for here.
