Love Your Curls

I remember in grade school I used to HATE my hair. I would take my shower and spend hours and hours trying to brush it straight. I think this was before straighteners were a thing {or maybe I was just to obviously to know about them} but I would sit, watch 90210 and brush my wet hair over and over again, hoping it would dry straight, or without the “dent” as I would call it. bump curls

I remember being totally jealous of the girls that could just do nothing to their hair and it would be totally straight and soft  and easy. Even after hours of brushing & trying to tame my mane it would still be a frizzy mess. Looking back now, I am pretty sure the brushing over and over again just made it a little extra crazy!

It took me a while but after I experienced some trial and error, I finally found some amazing products that worked for me and my hair – AND I perfected the ‘scrunch’ {if you have curly hair, you know what I’m talking about!

Now that I’m a {little} older and {a lot} wiser I love my hair! I love the fact that I can wear it straight OR curly – depending on my mood. I have options and a lot of people pay good money to add lots of body to their hair – something I have lots of & I now love it!

When I had the opportunity to partner with  Dove Hair + Love Your Curls I was pretty surprised to learn some crazy stats! Women and girls with curly hair tend to feel less confident.

    • Only 4 in 10 little girls with curly hair think their hair is beautiful
    • Only 10% of women in the U.S. with curly hair feel proud of their hair
    • One in three women in the US have curly hair

The Dove Hair “Love Your Curls” campaign is meant to to encourage women to celebrate their curls and inspire future generations to do the same. Because girls are more likely to feel beautiful and proud of their hair if people around them do.

The NEW Love Your Curls book is a poetic tribute to curly hair. The real stories from real women inspired the poems in the book, it was written by best-selling author, Taiye Selasi and illustrated by Annick Poirier and it is intended to represent and inspire curly girls of all ages.roller coaster

I was so excited to try out the new Dove Quench Absolute for my own curly, wavy hair! These products provides 4X more defined, natural curls and the formulas, infused with protein, nutrients and Buriti Oil, provide a nourished, smooth finish. I was able to try out the  Absolute Ultra Nourishing Shampoo, Absolute Ultra Nourishing Conditioner, Absolute Intensive Restoration Mask and the  Absolute Supreme Crème Serum – I loved being able to try out the whole line together because I felt my waves had a little extra pep in their step!

I was so excited when I was able to partner with Dove HairLove Your Curls book – not to mention that I was able to try out the new Quench Absolute products. It brought back some nostalgia of my grade school, awkward teenage years when I didn’t love how my hair looked {but seriously, who did back them?} and I’m so glad I am more confident in my appearance and my self now to be able to Love my Curls!

    I love my curly hair because I just have to run mouse through my hair and let it air dry each day. So quick, which is great because by the time I am done showering my 4 month old is done being patient with me 🙂
