2.
A popular term in the African-American community, used to describe an black person's hair that closely resembles the hair of a typical white person (i.e. soft, managable, long, as opposed to "nappy" or "bad" hair). The closer your hair is to a white person's, the "better" your hair is. See: "bad hair".

Note: Most people who use this term would never admit the inferiority complex from which it came.

3.
A term popular in the African-American community; the typical hair of those of African decent. It is extremely curly/wavy and described as "nappy" and "kinky." It is unmanagable, and is the opposite of good hair. Someone has "bad" hair if it forms tight "beads" in the back of the head. Those with this type of hair typically dye and fry it with chemicals to get it to look like a white woman's hair.

Note: Most people who use this term would never admit the inferiority complex from which it came.
