I Have ‘Good Hair’ They Told Me – But It Is A Term I Really Do Not Like

Ever since I could remember, I’ve always heard that I had “good hair.” My hair was long, thick, and somewhat manageable. My mother told me, my family members told me, and I remember getting my hair done at the salon and the stylist even made a comment saying that I need to make sure I take care of my hair, because there are people out there who would kill to have good hair like mine.I did’t really despise the term until I got a litter older, and more mature. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting complimented on my hair, because I take pride in it’s health and I actively work to make sure my hair is getting the attention and care it needs.However, I don’t like the negative connotation that surrounds the term good hair. I mean if you want to be completely honest about the term, in my opinion, the term good hair has traditionally been defined as having hair closer to the texture of Europeans, and Caucasians, and that kinky* hair is unacceptable, or should be looked down upon, because it’s not as “good.”
