Who Is Nappi By Nature?

After 30 plus years in the Beauty Industry, Nappi By Nature derived from a desire to live a chemical free lifestyle by going natural. Once we stopped the relaxer/perm culture in our lives in 1999,it's been on ever since.

We have been a vibrant entity in the Memphis community as Nappi By Nature since it's inception in 2002.

The name derived from the hip hop group Naughty By Nature. "Nappi" would replace the "Naughty," & the rest is history.

NBN skyrocketed into high demand due to the growing urge of positive natural lifestyle changes in hair, consciousness, and health, as well as trendy chemical free hair styles and locs in the mid-south area grew.

Through word of mouth & great professional service from our staff, more people have turned to us for all of the natural hair concerns, desires & solutions, as well as embracing their path to natural beauty and cultural information.

Our clients come all the way from Texas, East Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, California to get the service they deserve when it comes to Platinum Loc Care and Natural Styles.

Enhanced with beautiful artwork by Powwah Da Poet, NBN captures your spirit and the atmosphere leaves you breathtaking. People are blown away by the amazing selection of cultural accessories that can only be found at Nappi By Nature.

We believe in the preservation of beautiful locs and nappi hair. We know once you have embraced yourself naturally, you begin to boost self-worth, self-love, self-esteem, & self-confidence. This creates immeasurable strength in oneself and therefore redirects the focal point of life to the preservation of your family and community.

Some may say what does hair have to do with who you are and the direction that life is taking you? And I would say to those people. The way society including radio, television, magazines, billboards, etc., influences basic living, beauty, appearance and stardom, hair is very important. If you are not taught that your nappi hair is beautiful healthy hair, and that chemically treated hair is dangerous to your health, you have been mislead & bamboozled.

When a person has been wearing relaxers, thermal straightening, and using other chemicals, it can lead to major diseases & illnesses. The beauty industry makes countless billions of dollars, that they knowingly are dropping the torch when it comes to cause and effect from years and years of chemical usage.

When the decision has been made to go natural, the world closes in around you due to lack of natural hair care & instruction. Nappi By Nature has filled that gap. We have transformed thousands since 1999, and continue to be the number one spot for locs & natural hair. We offer traditional locs, free from crochet needles, loc tools, etc. We also offer natural styles, braids, twists, straw sets, & more. We do not do extensions of any kind.

Take the time to do the research yourself. Perms or relaxers is a major cause of skin ailments, breast cancer, cysts, tumors, baldness, damaged scalps, hair bulb & follicles damage and more in black women. Don't take my word for it. I have done the research. It's time for you to do yours. If you realize that you are self inflicting or damaging your body by using harsh chemicals, isn't that enough reason to make a positive change? This informative site is not only for natural beauty, but for healthy living as well.
