A PLACE FOR US

The natural hair movement began online around 2001, and exploded right here on Nappturality.com. So yes, we can claim it. Is the natural hair movement the exclusive domain of Black women? In my opinion, yes it is. It is not exclusion, it is protection.

Simple ACV Conditioner

Natural Hair Care: ACV Rinse

This is my recipe for a simple Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Balancer and Conditioner. Great for locs, extensions and loose natural hair. Even better for your scalp!

Embracing the Silvering Crown

It’s inevitable. The last frontier of a head of healthy, natural hair – the process of going grey.  We all have to face it. It will happen. All of us who are heading for a “mature” age, and even some of our younger women who have that early-graying gene, or the stress-caused change have to face it, though earlier than the rest of us.
