nappy is not a bad word...it feels the same way as someone using the term black...it really depends on the intent behind the use of the word.  i do lol at black ppl talkin about proud to be nappy when their natural hair ain't even nappy.

My 4b/c hair is nappy or kinky .. either word is fine. I never associated the word nappy as a negative connotation.
 
You folks are too sensitive .. and it's not working for you.

if you're fine with it, how do you feel about other races referring to your hair as nappy? it's actually not come up personally. i'd rather them not though-- regardless of race. usually with other people (black included) nappy is used negatively and you're not about to insult me or my "hairitage" as it were.

You got me feeling like we really need to solve something with the word "nappy", either keep it or kill itLOL

Its not even our word and its starting to seem like we're the only ones who still use it.


i guess i feel  words definitely should be evaluated. i just find more and more that i need to think about the words i use, how i use them and what they say about me and how i feel about others.
i have a hard time seeing or finding the balance of saying something to exhibit pride but on the other hand hurtful if said by an outsider.

im reading this thread about BB live feeds and apparently Amanda last night was mad at Candice for wearing her head-band and said "put it on her greasy, nappy hair head without asking".

so that would piss me off but if im "happy to be nappy" am i telling the world that i should be more mad about her calling her hair greasy.LOL idk

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.

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