The longing for long, lustrous locks isn’t limited to African American ladies.
So says Nia Long, who’s among the A-list sisters interviewed in Good Hair, Chris Rock‘s hilarious new documentary that “explores the wonders of African American hairstyles.”
Interviewed on Timothy Hodge, the actress, who has appeared in such hit flicks as Boyz n the Hood, Soul Food and Big Momma’s House, offers her take on terrific tresses.
“Good hair is hair that’s shiny and healthy. And for all my sisters out there who weave it in, that’s good hair. too,” Nia tells host Timothy Hodge.
“[Good Hair] is not about chastising or criticizing women who choose extensions. It’s really about acceptance, and understanding what makes you feel comfortable.
“If I put extensions in my hair, it’s usually for work. Or it could just be that I’m in the mood to have long hair,” she continues.
“Hair is a huge business in the black community. But also it’s something that women talk about secretly and quietly amongst themselves.
“We shouldn’t be ashamed of our beauty choices. We aren’t the only people gettin’ hair weaves. White women get hair weaves. Black women get hair weaves. Asian women get hair weaves.
“It’s a part of our beauty culture these days.”
