Culture: From The Roots

Vivien Goldman, Sounds, 18 March 1978

"THIS IS cactus. You can wash your hair with it. You pick it," running his finger nail down the cactus bud till a creamy sap oozes from it, "then you put it in water in the pan, then you wash your hair," vigorously rubbing his locks, "all over. That makes it like real African. That's the roots." – Joseph Hill of Culture, At Home.
