What is Nappturality?
Nappturality is all about embracing your NAPPtural, natural hair. Many, many thousands of African American women and women of African descent all over the world have stopped relaxing their hair and are wearing their natural hair proudly. All have different reasons for doing it — damage, scalp problems, illness, hair loss, finances, curiosity or maybe simply being tired of wasting all day Saturday waiting in a salon. Others saw someone on the train wearing a fierce set of locs, coils or twists and started to rethink their choices.
We’re in many of phases of nappturality. We’re transitioning, or wearing braids or weaves and thinking about transitioning — and some of us have just cut off the relaxer and are beginning to learn how to care for napptural hair in the real world.
But regardless of how we got here, all of us have these three things in common:
- We want to have healthy, beautiful, natural hair.
- We want to see pictures of other women’s natural hair.
- We want the transition to natural hair to be as painless as possible.
