Da Kink In My Hair

Da Kink In My Hair

2 Seasons

Da Kink in my Hair follows the lives of a group of women who let their hair down in more ways than one at “Letty’s”, a vibrant and bustling hair salon in Toronto’s Caribbean community. Novelette, Letty’s smart and sassy owner, has the answers for her clients’ dilemmas but can’t always figure out how to tame the tangles in her own life surrounded as she is by her zany sister Joy, her fourteen-year-old born-and-raised in Jamaica son Dre and her family of stylists including the wide-eyed new girl Starr and the wicked-tongued bad boy Nigel. The series filters its stories through the quirky, ironic, irrepressible humor of the Caribbean community while using its salon setting to tackle universal themes: what we all really talk about, cry about, and laugh about when we feel free to be ourselves.
