Twitterverse, especially women exploded with excitement after Netflix released the trailer of Nappily Ever After.

The film, starring The Best Man actress Sanaa Lathan, is about a black woman who finds her identity after chopping her hair off. In the trailer, Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan) shaved off her locks after his longtime boyfriend refuses to propose her for marriage.

Appreciating the plot of the flick, which will debut on Netflix in September, women took to Twitter to express how relatable the issue is.

A user tweeted, "well this took me down memory lane. sheesh. this my childhood. that hot comb y'all don't know pressure until you gotta hold your ear down so your moms can catch those edges."

Another user tweeted, "The amount of strength, pride, and identity that black women hold in their hair is both mentally/physically exhausting and completely liberating."

"This acc looks good ,,,,,,,, i hope it's done well bc hair is sUCH an empowering, important part of being black" read another.

Another tweeted, "Yes, girl! I've been #NappilyEverAfter for decades. No diss those who perm, fry, or weave, to fit the majority's beauty standards that we've been conditioned to accept. All hair is "good hair," no matter the texture. I have Netflix. I'll be watching."

A user wrote," I'm cryinggggg, because I literally did this with my hair. Shaving it off is such a life changing experiencing and I'll never change what I went through."
