Recently, a Natural Hair Sorority called Pi Nappa Kappa emerged with a mission to “To educate, inspire and uplift natural hair women, men, boys and girls throughout the entire world. To make the word “nappy” into a “happy” and celebrated term.”

Founded in 2010, the sororities’ Facebook page is where the group’s interactions primarily take place. Women are given their line numbers by order in which they became a fan of their Facebook page as well as an online Pledge of Honor.

I’m sure the sorority means no disrespect to official Greek life and initiation but doing everything via Facebook takes away from the experience of pledging in my opinion.

I respect the fact that the sorority is trying to bring natural-haired women together but the way they are going about it is like a mockery.

Is it really the answer to bring Greek life to areas of culture and hair?

  • We really need to stop putting each other down. Natural, relaxed, bald, locks, whatever. If society at large wants to make hair political fine. But we, the ones with the hair need to stop adding fuel to the fire.

      eclecticspectrum, I totally agree with you! Ladies, we are our own women. Do what makes you feel good! We are NOT defined by a GROUP name!

    Okay Im just trying to figure out who is telling the relaxed women that they cant click “like” on the FB page? I mean seriously!!! KYS The sorority was created to encourage women to go natural, stay natural and enjoy and embrace their natural hair. I think its fun actually. Its not different then you being inducted in the National Honor’s Society, or the Vegan Societies or Organizations or etc….. its just a group. If you thought that it excluded you then you might want to check yourself… on the page it says OPEN TO EVERYONE. There is no discrimnation. If you hate it that bad then create a FB page can call your sorority “Fried, Dyed, Weaved up & laid to the side” #shrugs ¯_(ツ)_/¯
    BTW you may be suprised, because I may join that group too! LOL… its all in fun so try not to get bent out of shape over it. And thats the truth.com! (Also a member of the DST)

      I love all types of hair really and I love wigs, weave, dye and will lay my hair to the side… but I’ll leave the harsh chemicals to someone else who prefers it.
