Don’t Call My Relaxer Creamy Crack!

Some women who are new to the online hair world credit Chris Rock with coining the term ‘creamy crack’ in his documentary Good Hair, but it was a common term in the healthy hair world long before that film was even in production.  Relaxed and natural women use the term alike, but I am actually slightly offended by its use.  I’ve already explained my philosophy on hair – I love all types and textures and my priority is promoting...
