I haven’t heard anyone say “good hair” directly to me in years. Honestly (and this is going to sound like I’m throwing shots) I don’t believe I’ve heard the “good hair” terminology mainly because women are constantly putting someone else’s hair in their head. So now it’s this uncomfortable bragging about having “Malaysian hair” or “Dominican hair” or “Brazilian hair” and running their fingers through it 10,000 times a day. It makes me uncomfortable. Be this loving to your own hair.
