Good Hair

3

Chris Rock's daughter inspired documentary...

Chris Rock’s documentary on the vast amounts of time and money black women invest in hair weaves and chemical relaxers doesn’t want for laughs, stars (Ice-T, Salt-N-Pepa and Maya Angelou all offer up their own singularly individual views) or attitude.

But its agile, non-judgemental style means that any of the serious political points (“If your hair is relaxed, white people are relaxed”) get lost in the shuffle.

Still, the well-coiffed Rev Al Sharpton manages to get in some sharp digs at tonsorial oppression. Rock’s chat-track is a cut above the norm.
