The movie focuses on African Americans and seeks to explore some of the aspects of African American hair. During his quest for knowledge, Chris Rock delves into the $9 billion black hair industry, and visits such places as beauty salons, barbershops, conventions, scientific laboratories (to learn the science behind chemical relaxers that straighten hair), and India, where many of the hair weaves worn by African American women are from. Various celebrities also talk about some of their own experiences with their hair, and how black hair is perceived in the black community.
