The term "Good Hair" originates in the African-American/Black community that is used to describe black people with softer, looser-curled, manageable hair. This type of language stems from history of colorism and Societal Assimilation due to centuries of being taught that lighter skin, softer hair and caucasioid features are somehow more beautiful. Throughout the generations it has been a coined term in the community. Mostly used by the older generation.

A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.

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.

Good hair automatically equals healthy and trained hair.
Stylist: I have 7 clients heads to style and I should be done pretty quick because they all have trained healthy hair that I can work through fast & easy.
Stylist #2: Wish my clients would take care of their head when I'm not there and start training their own heads before they sit up in my chair expecting me to give them good hair.
