Hi, I am Kelly-Ann. My handle on Youtube is CurlyKelz and my videos are posted here.
First, its really cool to see my name and videos here! Wow :)
Second, I hate the word "Nappy". This is a word coined by White slave owners to describe the hair our of Ancestors; who had the misfortune of being owned like cattle with no rights or sense of identity. Its a bad word and is just as hurtful as the N-word.
To actually believe that "nappy" hair exists is not only sad but disturbing. No one has "Nappy" hair. Some people have dry hair due to using products with the wrong ingredients. I was once one of those people. If you don't believe me, you can check out the earlier videos on my Youtube channel. I was not a curly girl back then. I was using products with silicones, parabens, sulphates. These dry out our hair and turn our naturally curly hair into frizzy hair or what some sad people call "Nappy" hair. When I cut those ingredients out of my hair regiment, my frizzy hair turned to curls...tight, lovely curls. The sad part is, people who come up to me and ask about my hair ALWAYS insist I must be mixed! Its quite offensive. This insinuates that people of pure African heritage, cannot have lovely curly hair. Its a lie! We have GREAT hair.
Before I go, I'd like to encourage everyone to love their curls. Do not pine over "elongated" curls. There's nothing wrong with tight curls. All curls are lovely!
