I partnered up with Dove Hair’s new #LoveYourCurls Campaign to help show women and girls how to love their natural curls. I’ll let you in on a little back-story about me, myself and my curls…
The day I graduated from high school I went straight to the hair salon and chopped all my hair off…and I mean all of it.
I was left with about 2 inches of new, beautiful, natural curls. You see, about 6 months before that, I embarked on a mission to discover what my natural hair texture was. Like so many gals with curls, I grew up getting relaxers from a very young age. Like clockwork, every 6 weeks, I would get a relaxer that would completely remove all the texture from my hair. So when I was 17, after seeing a beautiful girl in a music video with the most amazing head of fuzzy curls, I decided to stop getting relaxers and see what was underneath it all. What I discovered was a head full of curls. Some wispy, some soft, some not so soft, some frizzy, some not so curly and all beautiful to me.
That’s the moment I fell in love my curls.
But anyone with curly hair knows that “These Curls Ain’t Loyal.” Haha I saw that on Instagram once and I can’t get it out of my mind. It’s a fact…curly hair has a mind of its own. Day to day, it dries completely differently. There in lies both the beauty and the frustration. Over the years, I have learned that the one common denominator to beautiful curls, no matter how they dry, is moisture. Say it with me ladies…MOISTURE!! Curls are thirsty…and I just rediscovered my thirsty curls thanks to Dove.
Okay, that last paragraph deserves another small back-story…
Over the last year or so, I have been going blonde…and with blonde comes damage. With constant flat ironing and bleaching my natural curls have lost so much of their umf…leading me to steer away from my curls most of last year. But last week I tried the Dove Quench Absolute series and quench my curls it did!
Dove Hair is encouraging women and girls to love their curls.. So I thought it only fitting to partner with Dove and show the world that I LOVE MY CURLS!
Not only did Dove quench restore much needed moisture to my thirsty curls, but they helped to define them as well which in turn helps to define me. So grab some Dove Quench and rock those curls…because curly hair = Confidence!
