1. nappyhead …  a term used to describe someone (typically of African descent) who possesses tighly coiled, very curly hair. Though often used as a slur, insult, or indicator of self-loathing the term is often used to express an individual’s self-love, individuality, uniqueness and beauty.

2. nappyhead …  an African or African American or anyone of African descent who wears that hair natural and has one of the many textures of woolly-like (nappy) hair.

I have since become a ‘nappyhead’ because I decided to stop relaxing and using chemicals and decided to let my ‘nappy’ hair shine it’s all god-given glory.

3. nappyhead … a black man who desperately needs a haircut because his hair is bad or rough.
