Hey all – I just wanted to give you a heads up – for anyone that has not yet seen the Documentary Good Hair – its on BBC iplayer (Filed under films) until the 7th Jan
The BBC describes it as: Comedian Chris Rock explores the world of African-American hair, visiting beauty salons, barbershops and even a hair styling convention in Atlanta, meeting some larger-than-life characters along the way. He also travels to India to discover where the hair used in weaves and extensions comes from.
I went to see this film in Brixton when it came out, and he was there on stage afterwards for some Q&A, I felt that the film was a good start to look at the hair as a lot of people still don’t know where the hair comes from or how it is produced. There were some expensive weaves on that programme I remember one was $2k!!
Anyway I wont give any more away, please have a watch and let me know what you thought. If you have already seen it comment and let me know what you thought about it.
