    I'll just say that I liked most of it and it was a quality production.

    LOL! I was thinking when I saw her "yeah...when you look like that you can be bald and say 'oh it's so nice not doing anything to my hair.' Puh-leez!" Wish I would. Even my super-supportive husband said he'd have to object to me choosing to wear a bald head (actually it was a Mr. T mohawk--but close enough! :lachen:)

    I like the way this looks.
    I love what that one lady said about if she wears a fro on Monday and a press on Friday,(or something to that effect) she hasn't lost any love for herself in that time period. i can so agree!

    All I know is that somebody, somewhere, needs to do a better job than Chris Rock at examining black women and their hair. It's a fascinating subject and I think a thoughtful, well-done doc would definitely increase understanding and acceptance.
