FIND: 400 Years Without A Comb

I was traipsing along on YouTube when I came across an ignorant comment pointing towards a video called "400 Years Without A Comb". The title peaked my interest so off I went. I found that "400 Years" was a documentary of sorts broken into six parts on YouTube. I also gathered that the video was filmed around the 60s or 70s.

The documentary is interesting and thought provoking. It explains popular customs in the black community relating to our appearance and hair by looking at the past. It also seems to be trying to sell afro piks. I'm not so sure about the last one. Have a look at all six parts, then tell me what you think!
