Five stars to this absorbing documentary that follows comedian Chris Rock on a journey examining Black hair and the industry surrounding it. Chris was motivated by a desire to understand what his two daughters will face culturally when one asked, "Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" Very funny, but reveals things* I had no clue about, and has a core of sadness.
* I'm just not a hair person, perhaps because I had long, straight, golden-blonde tresses. I have heard the word "weave" but I had no idea about it, frankly.
