Inspired by his two young daughters asking "How come I don't have good hair?" comedian Chris Rock made GOOD HAIR to explore the many societal, financial, and emotional implications surrounding African-American women's desire to have straighter tresses. Through interviews with celebrities, hair stylists, hair-product manufacturers, and academics, Rock sheds light on why African-American women (and some men, like the Reverend Al Sharpton) go to such lengths -- risking everything from chemical straightener burns to financial ruin from the outrageous cost of weaves -- to change their hair's texture.
