99% of black women use a product hair relaxer, i’m part of these women! But a politico-capillary movement fights against that trend: the Nappy movement. The “nappy” is above all a state of mind, it’s a contraction of natural+happy. Being nappy is simply being happy and being natural.The word “nappy” appeared first during the slavery to designate blacks’ hair. At that time, the term “nappy head” was used in a racist manner. However it became over the years a term that designated a political and protest movement in the struggle for the blacks’ civil rights and the affirmation of their culture. The afro cut becomes the synonym of a claim, the independentist revolutionary movements such as “the Black Panthers” wore afro cuts. Angela Davis, “Black Feminism” representant, was one of the first muse of the afro cut. And today, being nappy is new trend!
