Rebirth of Nappy Hair

There’s a revolution going on, people!  We black women and women of color are taking back our power.  We are reinventing ourselves by learning the truth about our own natural beauty.  For many years, we have bowed down to the dominant beauty standard.  We have gone through the torture necessary to beat down our own natural selves so as to fit into the mold of another’s standard.  We have forced our kinky, coily hair strands into a straight mold.  A square peg into a round hole.  We lyed to ourselves.  We put “creamy crack” on our spirally, kinky, curly naps to force them into submission–to lie down flat and straight and lifeless.  Then we set our submitted, straightened coils on rollers & curlers & perm rods to make them curl up!! What?!

Well, we are totally tired of the torture!  We are enlightening each other about how to release and free our kinky, curly, coily, poufy, fluffy, cnapps! We are finally learning about the gift of God to us–our unique hair!
We are revolutionizing our minds because as we free our minds, our ____ will follow!  And we are moving at the speed of cyberspace!  So ladies, either ride the wave or the wave will roll over you!!

    Hello Anna Renee,I couldn't figure out any other way to contact you so i figured i'd do it as a comment on one of your posts.I was hoping you'd want to be my beauty of the week sometime soon. No stress at all, i'd just give you a few questions to answer and your post would be up within 3weeks. If it sounds like something u'd be interested in, please email me at!

    Hello Abena! Thanks so much for the invitation and I'd be happy to do it! I have to admit, though, that I don't see myself as beautiful as of yet but I'm learning!
