Daily DIC: Hair Care

"fathers/be good to your daughters..."--John Mayer

New rule: all men need daughters. All men need daughters because a famous [and funny] Black man has made a movie called Good Hair, and it's not about having a baby with a Mexican.

If someone would have told me that Chris "Women Always Be Complainin, They Be Complainin" Rock was broken-hearted enough by his little girl, Lola's, simple question "Daddy, why don't I have good hair?" to make an entire documentary on Black women and their hair, I'd have stared at them for 30 seconds before wordlessly walking away. But make it he did, and debut it at Sundance he did as well, with one of the featured actresses, Nia Long. I'm anxious to see it, actually, and I'm also pretty darn proud of Chris. I guess at 40, he's kind of growing up. Or not.
