Good Hair by humon Good Hair by humon
"Good hair" usually means "straight hair", I know. But dammit, I love curly afro hair.

I know, I know, as a white woman I should shut my big mouth because natural afro hair is a bitch to work with, but I've felt like that ever since I was a child and watched a children's show called "Bullerfnis" [link] and I though the woman was the most beautiful thing ever, hair included.

Than a few years later her and her friend appeared in a children's movie as two cops, and she wore a straight wig [link] and I was all "Why did they make her less pretty? :C"
Only many years later did I realize that they made her more of a stereotypical tough black chick, and him a stereotypical whimpy white guy who was in love with her. :XD:

Afro's and cornrows: Good on black ladies, not on white.

I'm part African American (Though you can't tell by my skin tone, haha) and I'm so happy to find someone that thinks curly hair is downright beautiful.

Thank you so much for this! These girls are beautiful and their hair is fantastic.

I wish there were more drawing references for African American women hair :(

We live in a society that only deems something white as "perfect" and "beautiful".

Anything with color is seen as "ugly" and "demented".

I love this! I hate how people always classify as good hair as "straight hair" 
I'm black and I love my curly thick hair! For about 10 months I've been growing out my hair 
by wearing dreadlocks! It's the best thing I've done for my hair and it's healthier than ever before!
I love how this kills stereotyping (:

I'm white but my hair is almost like afro hair. My classmates are always teasing me because of it. But I also like curly hair and dread locks =)

Love this! I've been natural for 6 years and yes afro hair can be a pain especially because I have kinky-coily and wavy hair. I have had just about every natural hairstyle drawn in this excellent representation of "good hair". Im def faving this! :)
