Brands We Love | Dove | Love Your Hair

Ladies, let’s talk hair. There is so much chatter about what we need to be doing with our hair. Yes, I said that right. Society seems to think they should have a say in how we wear our hair. And what’s worse, is that we’ve totally normalized this. For some this pressure might come in the form of not being allowed to embrace natural hair in the work place; for others it might be pressure to dye over those hard earned grays to appear more youthful. Dove hair found that 8 out of 10 women feel pressured to wear their a certain way? I love that Dove wants to expand this narrow definition of what beautiful hair should look like, and more importantly, they want us to share this message with our daughters. I. AM. HERE. FOR. THIS.

This isn’t the first time you’ve seen me talking about embracing my natural hair on social media, and it surely won’t be the last. So when Dove Hair reached out to me, I jumped. What I loved even more… this wasn’t a product selling mission. They didn’t send me goods in exchange for saying I like them; they are ALL about the message of loving your hair and building confidence in our daughters. Well, Dove, you’ve made a huge fan out of me.

Our daughters are looking to us to learn how to love themselves. In fact, a Dove study found that 82% of girls learn to care about themselves from their mother. Talk about pressure. But I signed up for this, and I’m not going to leave my girl hanging. My best approach to this is just being open with H. We talk about our hair, and I let her ask questions. I let her know that if I do decide to do something different with my hair, it’s because I want to, not because I feel like I have to. And most importantly, I teach her how to take care of her hair by allowing her to be part of my daily routine of taking care of mine.

We love our hair, especially the texture of it. Whether your hair is silky, kinky, wavy, long, short find ways to love your hair because it's yours. And you are beautiful.
