    Talking Our Guinness Book of World Records Event

    Press Release!

    Nappturality has been appointed the official vehicle for the first annual, World's Biggest Afro contest by the Guinness Book of World Records. We were asked because we are the experts on 'fros, of course!

    Since this is the first contest, the winner of this contest will be the record holder for 2011.


    Nappturality's administrators will chose the finalists for the competition and the finalists will then be contacted by the Guinness people, who will chose the winner! Of course member input is also important and the photos uploaded will be available to rank and comment on by all of you.

    The finalists will all receive a prize from Nappturality (to be announced later).

    The contest is open now to everyone, of course it is completely free, and will remain open for at least a month or longer, depending on entries (and dependent on the Guinness people).

    This is the perfect time to show off your beautiful BAAs so take some pictures and show us what you've got!

    GALLERY (which will show all photos once uploaded)

    Have fun with it!

    Also, prizes will be awarded for beautiful, healthy heads of loose natural hair, whether they are BIG or not. So get to styling and get to snappin!!

    Very cool. Though, I think that model in the swimsuits might win it.

    ONLY if she enters.
    Let me be clear: the winner of this contest will be chosen from finalists chosen by Nappturality. We set the standard.

    You can't enter directly to the GBWW people. If someone tries, they get sent to us to enter.

    This is going to be interesting.

    A lot of those old school mega fros seem to have been achieved with the help of blowout kits and hair spray. Hairspray and styling products are expressly forbidden but there's nothing there that says your hair has to be natural....

    Dee, is this open to people with texturisers? What about people who did a blowout with heat?

    Blowouts can look big and they can look bad. Texturized hair loosens up the ability of the hair to stand up and out. So I can't see the advantage in either of those. That's why I have been chosen the screen the entrants, to find the best afro hair. The hair must be healthy and full and able to stand UP and OUT on its own for an extended period of time. There is not problem with picking the hair out as far as it can go, as long as it is still an afro.
