'Hair Nah!' Is The Viral Game Created For Black Women Worldwide

Black women with natural hair are fairly familiar with the daily pursuit of dipping and dodging the hands of curious non-Black women. Momo Pixel, Art Director and Developer, created the interactive travel game to all of your fantasy dreams.

"Hair Nah!" is the one-dimensional game that recently went viral and has filled the lives of so many of us - especially black women - with so much life and appreciation. The objective? To swat away as many hands away from your head as gamingly possible!

"Hair Nah! came from my favorite word and a situation that happened," said Pixel to OnSheGoes. "It’s a little funny, but I say 'nah' like way too much. It’s one of my favorite words because it can mean so much, and depending on my tone it can be funny or serious. And I was telling my CDs [creative directors] a story about people touching my hair, and there’s this part where I dodge a girl’s hand and I’m like, 'nah.' When I was trying to explain it to my CDs, one of them was like, 'Oh man, like I’m trying to imagine the dodging.' ... [Then] as I’m watching him, it dawns on me! I’m like, that would make a hilarious game. Then, boom! Hair Nah!"

The game even allows you to customize the hair on your avatar, which was obviously a deliberate choice for Pixel. "The hairstyles were fun and I was thinking of black Twitter, what would they clap me on, and what would they love? They would love baby hair. On the bantu knots, I went in!" she explained to Dazed.

"I would say [women touching my hair] mostly started occurring after college," Pixel explained to OnSheGoes." I think I’m lucky in a sense that I went to an extremely diverse school... [so] people reaching into my head without permission? Nah! This is new to me. I’ve experienced it more in this past year than my whole life, more specifically since I’ve moved to Portland…LAWD!"

"I’ll be walking and a woman will reach her hands into my head; I’m talking to a teammate, and a coworker I just met is holding my hair in his hand; I’m in the checkout line, and the cashier will reach across to caress my braids. I shudder thinking about it," she said.

"It’s very off-putting and it pisses me off because it’s hard to be yourself when everyone is claiming a piece of it. I find myself at least in Portland being very guarded, and the moment someone mentions my hair, I grab it to claim ownership. I even have responses prepared and dance moves for when drunk white women start dancing near me, talking about I’m a unicorn. Like, nah, bruh! I’m about to do this bob and weave and keep my sanity."

A bob and weave mixed with a little cultural lesson. Thank you, Momo Pixel, from black women around the world!

Not my fiancé, not my boyfriend, but my husband! i still love him even though he thinks i want to leave i really want him to do better and stop me before i walk out! my husband told me that he doesn’t feel loved anymore, just because of this co-worker he has be cheating on with me that he wants a divorce, i was devastated, heart broken i begged him to listen to me that we can work it out like we always do, but he didn’t listen, he told me that he met someone that loves and understands him, i begged him to consider our kids but he’s did listen. he left and i was frustrated, i began searching for help and answers, then i heard about a man that can Cast a spell to remind him of all the things we have been through together, at first I was scared then i decided to give it a try, and like magic my husband came back, apology and begging for forgiveness, thanks to this man, I’m posting this to help people with
