I generally don't use the term nappy unless I'm taking about bad weave.
"My weave/wig is getting all nappy, I need to brush it"..
I associate nappy with being a "bad" thing.

But I do not see a problem with black people calling their natural hair nappy..whatevs.

On the other hand, if a white person called my hair nappy, we'd have a problem.

Nappy is not happy word among some of my family members.
 
When I did the big chop my cousin made sure that I knew my hair was nappy. She took it a step further and said, if you had a girl she would've have nappy hair like you not good hair like the boys.
 
She has some serious color and hair issues, that a whole nutha story.
 
For me the word is not bad, I've called my own hair nappy or curly. I don't like kinky at all.

I use nappy, kinky and/or kinky curly to describe my hair. I don't see nappy as a bad word describing my hair *unless* someone is trying to use it as an insult. Then we will have pro-lems.LOL

I use nappy but I side eye anyone else who calls my hair nappy cuz it's usually meant in a negative way.

I haven't since the 80's.
I usually say bushy hair; maybe coarse.

Don't like the word nappy. Never really hear people say it in my family. My boyfriend has said it when referring to his hair when it's not combed. I call mine curly, because that's what it is. Nappy sounds negative. My mother's side never used or used it. My stepdad has used it before. I will never use it.
