No it doesn't. But it's obvious here it was meant to describe Candice's hair in a not so nice manner.

Many ethnic women struggle with their hair in a way that they describe as "nappy." I hope you understand my example, but it would be like calling Andy ginger. Now Andy might not be offended himself by the term, but many redheads would be. The best lesson is to just remember if it might offend, just don't say it.

Before judging in conversation, imagine you were the topic!
