Dawn Yerger, Nappturalite Radio Show host

NaturallyCurly and Nappturalite Radio Sunday announced their joint Curly Confidence Contest—a YouTube-based promotion that encourages entrants to post videos explaining why and how they've embraced their natural curls.

With the Baltimore Natural Hair Care Expo as the backdrop, NaturallyCurly co-founder Michelle Breyer was featured on Sunday's Nappturalite Radio Show to talk about the web site's mission as well as to launch the Curly Confidence contest.

Other guests on the radio show included Malaika Cooper, who provided updates from the Expo, and Natural Chica from NaturalChica.com, who recently joined NaturallyCurly as a video blogger. One of the main topics of the show was whether the term "nappy" has positive or negative connotations, and whether that's changing.

The Nappturalite Radio Show is dedicated to the love of all things related to black natural hair care. It features regular discussions about natural hair trends, interviews with natural hair specialists and the scoop on the best hair-care products. Hosted by Dawn Yerger & co-host Jaye Reliford, the show airs live on BlogTalkRadio (internet radio) on Sundays at 5 p.m. CST. The episodes can also be listened to and downloaded on iTunes.

Previous guests have included Chris-Tia Donaldson, author of "Thank God I'm Natural: The Ultimate Guide to Caring for and Maintaining Natural Hair", Charisse Carney-Nunes, author of the children's book "Nappy" and Del Sandeen, Black Hair Expert on About.com.

Yerger, the creator of the Nappturalite Radio Show, recently transitioned from relaxed to natural hair - doing the "big chop" in November 2009 - and found herself in a whole new world. She decided to document her journey and share the information that she continues to find through the Nappturalite Radio Show.

She is the author of the upcoming book "The Brink: How Women Entrepreneurs Resurrected Their Businesses & How You Can Do the Same."

I had to add "http://" to both of the YouTube subscribe links in #3 and was able to get there just fine. It looks like they've since fixed the issue.
