Our friends at Dove launched an incredible campaign to encourage women to love their curls! I feel in love with this campaign!
Here’s my story,
I started Natural Hair Bride in February of 2013 in hopes to inspire and encourage women preparing to say I-Do to Love Your Curls On Your Wedding Day.Â Â Natural Hair Bride is a manifestation of my trials as a bride to be nearly 4 years ago. I struggled with deciding whether to wear a weave or my natural curls to say I-Do. Without many style options and resources available, I turned to a straight weave and later regretted the decision.Â As I sat on my couch with a head fullÂ of curly hair, while looking at wedding photos of a straight weave, I knew I made the wrong decision.Â A few months later, Â I contacted a photographer, cleaned up my dress, grabbed my husband and retook photos with a shrunken twist out that I absolutely loved! From that point forward, I knew the meaning of loving my authentic self naturally in every occasion.
Dove wants all women and girls to love their curls and I completely agree. Girls are more than likely to love their hair if others around them do too. it starts at home.
Here’s a fewÂ facts Dove shared from their recent research on women with curls.
– Only 10% of women in the U.S. with curly hair feel proud of the hair.
– Only 4 in 10 little girls with curly hair think their hair is beautiful.
– Women and girls with curly hair tend to feel less confident.
Did you know that one in three women in the U.S. have curly hair? This is one of the reasons why Dove created the Dove Quench Absolute Hair Series for curly hair. I was sent the entire product collection as well as the beautiful “Love Your Curls” book, a poetic tribute to curly hair inspired by real women.Â It was inspired by thousands of stories from women with curly hair and is intended to represent and inspire curly girls of all ages.Â I adored the book and felt so empowered!
I absolutely love my curls and enjoyed using the Dove Hair products to help enhance and refresh them.The Dove Quench AbsoluteÂ is a three part system that claim to nourish hair and provide 4x more defined curls. The formulas, infused with protein, nutrients and Buriti oil to add a smooth finish. The collection included: Dove Quench Absolute Ultra Nourishing Shampoo, Conditioner, Intensive Restoration Mask and Supreme Creme Serum.Â
Take a look at my curls! I’m not the only one who love selfies in the car, right?
