#1 Network for Urban Beauty Professionals and The People They Inspire

I am always surprised when I meet people and they tell me I have "good hair." For someone who loves dreads, twist, locs, braids etc. I feel like we all have good hair. In 2008 are we still living by that stereotype? What is your definition of "good hair?" Tell me what you think.

GRRREAT topic! Yes Cali we are still dealing with that old stereo type and I think it stinks. I have built my career on natural hair. I think the hair the Heavens gave us is the hair we are meant to have. We need to celebrate that. It can start with us stylists. We need to stop pushing the chemicals and give our customers more natural hair options. Girl don't get me startedI
Yeah this is bull.
But we perpetuate it.
Tosha is right. The barbers and stylist can have a part in eradicating this notion.
I think it is an evil and destructive idea for people to embrace.
Good topic by the way!
I agree Hair is hair. What God gave you is what you are supposed to have. We as stylist really do need to stop pushing chemicals on clients. We should be able to deal with all types of hair. I had several clients coming to me saying that other stylist suggested that they should get a relaxer. I would never do that to a client. Healthy hair is my main focuse; whether it's relaxed or natural.
Good hair is hair that is in good condition, strong elastisity, regular trims, not over processed....you feel me? Good hair has nothing to do with the texture, wave pattern or tightness of the curl. Good Hair is HEALTHY hair.
Yea Good hair mean you have hair. Ask someone that have no hair what is good hair to them
Any hair that is on your head is good hair.
Good Hair...is Healthy Hair!
Amen to that JuJu and HairETC and Titus!!!!
I think that good hair is healthy, strong soft hair.. whether it be natural or relaxed.
there is such a thing as bad hair... thats the polar opposite good hair..
bad hair is dry, damaged, broken, brittle, unhealthy.....
Your Hair style makes a style statement to others. It makes you feel different from others while in a party or any social gathering. It is also said that good hair is a sign of good health.

Good hair means, it must be long,healthy and black and the thikness should be good. Every body don't have good hair, so many people face hair problem and they dont get any sollution also.
