Chris Rock, Solange, Talk Good Hair on OprahPublished by Michael Arceneaux on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at 12:00 am.
When it comes to black women and hair the words Remy, Yaki, and human hair are heard all too often.
That along with phrases like, “Her track is showing,” “Her weave looks busted,” “Ooh, I wonder where she bought that hair,” among others.
In his documentary Good Hair, Chris Rock goes in on millions of black women’s kitchens and explores why so many feel the need to spend their dollars to have hair made in New Dehli and Seoul sewn into their scalps.
Today, he’ll appear on Oprah to discuss his new film and Oprah herself will talk about her own hair history.
If your recall, Oprah addressed those of you who felt she had the good good attached to her scalp. She let it be known that her hair is real. Some of you sucked your teeth, but Oprah was too busy letting her [real] hair (take that, take that, haters) blow in the wind to care.
And since this show is themed on hair Solange will also appear on the show to discuss why she got the Florida Evans cut earlier in the year.
Give it up for baby sister making her way on to the Mother of daytime television’s talk show without an invite from Beyonce.
