SUMMARY:

This research tried to understand some faces of a growing movement in Brasil and abroad, especially among black women: acceptance their crimped or curly hair. For that, we needed to think over possible imaginary sociodiscursive built over the aforementioned types of hair. Our aim was to comprehend the historical, sociological and cultural reasons which, throughout many years, made black women deny their hairstyle and smooth it using chemical products and on the other hand what took them to assume a natural perspective. We also want to highlight the linguistic, discursive and rhetorical elements that shows why they did accept some African characteristics, among them, their curly hair. The corpus of this thesis is made of eight e-mails written by women who have been or were through the process of hair transitioning. These are stories sent to a blog during a cultural contest promoted by a beauty parlor. The contest was looking for the most impactful stories that would win a haircut, a hair treatment, a makeup production and a professional photo. Through their testimonials, we researched the senses produced by these women and how they help (re)building their identity. This analysis has been done considering: i) understand how the brazilian beauty patterns were built, besides thinking over racism and feminism using concepts from Nilma Lino Gomes (2008), Djamila Ribeiro (2018), Grada Kilomba (2019), Amanda Braga (2015), Joyce Berth (2019), Márcia Tiburi (2018), bell hooks (2019), Carla Cristina Garcia (2015), Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (2015), Vilma Piedade (2017), Schuma Schumaher e Érico Vital Brazil (2013), Silvio Almeida (2018), Rafael Guerreiro Osorio (2003), Kabengele Munanga (2003), Frantz Fanon (2008), among others. ii) we dwelled over the corpus from references that came from text and speech studies, mainly, using the concepts of life narrative and other that came from authors such as Patrick Charaudeau (2007), Dominique Maingueneau (2011) and Ruth Amossy (2005), Ida Lúcia Machado (2016), Leonor Arfuch (2010), Émile Benveniste (1991) and Stuart Hall (2006). Overall the analysis showed that the process of smoothing these women´s hair, that were traditionally curly or crimped, was a natural condition imposed to black women so that they could feel part of a society in which the beauty pattern is guided by eurocentric characteristics. We also noticed that the capillary transition, far from being an easy process, configures itself as a political movement of rebuilding their identity and self-affirmation.
