Our Definition of Kinnks:

(kiŋkś) or ki[ng]k [Etymology: Dutch; akin to Middle Low German kinke kink] Kink’i×er, kink’ i×est 1 a short twist, curl or bend in hair shared by women of African decent. (noun) 2 full of Kinnks; tightly curled [kinky hair] (adj)é 3 Our brand has changed the spelling to Kinnks, the extra “n” adds the world Nubian which refers to an ancient ethnic group of north-central Africa.

What is Kinnks.com?
Kinnks.com is a worldwide community of resources, history, tools, and advice for people with natural hair.  Visitors may surf our site and find pride in a world of aesthetics that normally excludes them.

Vendors that support wearing hair naturally (hair care brands, literature, websites, salons) will also be celebrated because they too promote self-pride.

Our mission is to enrich the lives of those who were taught, they are not naturally beautiful. Kinnks.com is a resource that aids in the pursuit and fulfillment that arises from wearing hair in its natural state. Our goal is to be the informational source for all things natural hair

What is the Mission of Kinnks.com?
Our mission is to enrich the lives of those who were taught, they are not naturally beautiful. Kinnks.com is a resource that aids in the pursuit and fulfillment that arises from wearing hair in its natural state. Our goal is to be the informational source for all things natural hair

Why create kinnks.com?
Unfortunately our society has a conformed view of beauty, it is time for a more holistic approach.  Women of Color should embrace the natural beauty of their hair, the most ethnically unique feature.

Around the world youth are taught they are not good enough.  Some turn to pinching their nose, bleaching their skin, straightening their hair, or even plastic surgery in an attempt to reach an unattainable standard of beauty.  With no one excluded, everyone is taught they can look better with a little work.

The price women pay for their straight mane goes beyond the physical hours of torture, pulling, burning, and headaches.  The emotional bondage becomes a necessity, one begins to need their hair done.  Not accepting the natural state of their hair puts a burden on daily activities.

When was Kinnks.com founded?
Kinnks LLC Online Resource was incorporated in Connecticut on July 17, 2006.  The natural hair link directory first went live April 30, 2007.  Lady Kinnks started her blog on January 4, 2009. The company is now located in Richmond, Virginia.

What happened to the directory?
We eliminated it October 2012 to focus more on our blog and event calendar.
