I Love My Curls!

Hi loves! Some of you may not know but I have not always worn my hair curly. I’ve worn my hair relaxed (straightened) from elementary school til a couple of years after college when I decided to stop getting my hair chemically straightened and transition to wearing my God-given natural hair. It was tricky at first, I was not confident with how to style or rock my own curls so I considered relaxing it a few times. Flash forward to five years later: I really can’t imagine trying to permanently alter my curls ever again! I’m still not fully comfortable with the idea of flat ironing my hair temporarily! I am in love with the KINKS, CURLS, and SPIRALS God has blessed me with! I love that I can manipulate my natural hair into a fro, wear a twist out, blow it out to stretch it into longer looks, and wear protective styles like braids, twists, and curls like I have pictured. 
The sad reality is that like I used to, many women and little girls do not love or feel confident wearing their hair naturally curly. In fact, only 4 in 10 little girls with curly hair think their hair is beautiful and only 10% of women in the U.S. with curly hair feel proud of their hair.
Society (magazines, tv, social media) tends to portray straighter textures of hair as more beautiful. It took me almost 25 years to fall in love with my hair and learn what products worked best for my hair and allow it to grow healthily. 
This is why  the message behind the Dove Love Your Curls campaign is so near and dear tome. Dove Hair launched this specific campaign to encourage women to celebrate their curls and inspire future generations to do the same. Girls are more likely to feel beautiful and proud of their natural hair if people around them do. I always make sure I tell my little cousins how beautiful their curls are and I hope they can see my hair and other examples of women proudly wearing their curly hair and get a glimpse of what they’d look like when they grow up. 

The Dove Quench Absolute formulas are infused with protein, nutrients and Buriti Oil to provide a nourished, smooth finish. To achieve 4x more defined, natural curls try these Dove Quench Absolute products: 
Absolute Ultra Nourishing Shampoo
Dove Quench Absolute Ultra Nourishing Conditioner
Dove Quench Absolute Intensive Restoration Mask
Dove Quench Absolute Supreme Crème Serum 
I absolutely love my curls and enjoyed using these products to help soften and take care of them.
Along with the Dove Quench Absolute line I was sent this amazing “Love Your Curls” book, which is a poetic tribute to curly hair inspired by real women. This book is a compilation of stories inspired by thousands of women with curly hair and is intended to represent and inspire curly girls of all ages! The cool thing is you can download (and share) the book to inspire curly girls/women in your life:  
    • Visit Dove.com/LoveYourCurls 
    • Download the free e-book.
    • Create a personalized e-book with a custom dedication and illustration for a curly girl in your life.
    • Share your personalized e-book on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.
I can’t wait to download and send some to my younger cousins as gifts!
