There was a scene in Spike Lee’s Malcolm X where the young lead character used a lye-based relaxer to create a “conk” hairstyle. However, after applying the relaxing chemicals, Malcolm realized that his water service was disconnected. To rinse the relaxer from his hair before burning his scalp, he wound up dunking his head in the toilet. We thought of this scene the other day when watching a dude rub a white, creamy substance into his hair, and then head toward the toilet stalls. We can only hope it was not another Malcolm X scenario.
