We must begin to define our Duafe!! This Documentary looks like a wonderful examination of how woman are doing just that!!


KICKIN’ IT WITH THE KINKS is a documentary that explores the complexities of haircare among women and especially among women of African descent. While many have opted to be part of the growing trend of ‘going natural’ others continue to go through great lengths to achieve unnaturally long flowy hair.

The history of afro-textured hair is re-visited, norms derived from these explored and the dangers of chemical products unveiled. Mundia, a Manchester based student, explores this area further. She documents the reality of how much time, effort and money women dedicate to their hair and also meets with specialists who are able to give insightful points into the history of afro textured hair and the ever booming hair product and hair extension industries.
