Synopsis of Good Hair
Good Hair is Chris Rock's upcoming comedy/documentary premiering on October 9, 2009. The movie focuses on African Americans and seeks to explore some of the aspects of African American hair. According to Chris Rock, he was prompted to make the movie after his 5-year old daughter, Lola, asked him, "Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" During his quest for knowledge, Chris Rock delves into the $9 billion black hair industry, and visits such places as beauty salons, barbershops, conventions, scientific laboratories (to learn the science behind chemical relaxers that straighten hair), and India, where many of the hair weaves worn by African American women are from. Chris Rock explains that the movie retains a sense of seriousness, yet at the same time remains humorous. The movie features celebrities like Ice-T, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven-Symone, Maya Angelou, KRS-One, Salt-n-Pepa, Eve, Reverend Al Sharpton, Meagan Good, and Kerry Washington, as they talk about some of their own experiences with their hair, and how black hair is perceived in the black community.
