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 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.

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.
