A while back Chris Rock did a documentary called “Good Hair” on the hair styles of African Americans and the lengths they will go to in an attempt to look beautiful in the eyes of others.  After living here in Africa for such a long time I must say I have seen some awesome examples of what is possible without the need of a billion dollar a year industry.  Half of these pictures were taken just yesterday and I love them.

These are hair styles that bring out the uniqueness of a culture.  Each one is a work of art.  This is a celebration of the history and natural beauty found here.  Perhaps African American women should look to their “roots.”
