My twin girls couldn’t be more different. One loves to play with dolls, while the other would rather play games on the iPad. One loves wearing dresses and styling her hair, while the other is more comfortable wearing athletic clothes and pulling her hair up into a ponytail. One thrives on playing sports, while the other could live in the pool. And while they look like sisters, they aren’t even close to being identical. One has fine, straight blonde hair and the other has thick, curly blonde hair.
My curly-haired beauty actually loves her curls. She used to get sad about them but now she truly embraces them. My husband and I have made it a point to compliment her curls every day and tell her how pretty they are. Something so simple has changed her entire perception.
The reality is most girls with curly hair don’t feel confident. 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. Dove wants to change that! They want ALL women and girls to love their curls. Dove launched the “Love Your Curls” 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 hair if people around them do (we know this first hand!).
I think more women and girls would love their curls if they had the right products to accentuate them. I’ve learned with my daughter that using the right shampoo, conditioner and styling products makes a huge difference in the appearance of her hair. She recently started using the new Dove Quench Absolute products and they have been amazing!
The Dove Quench Absolute formulas are infused with protein, nutrients and Buriti Oil to provide a nourished, smooth finish. My daughter has been using the three-part system for about a month now and her hair has dramatically improved. It went from being dry and slightly frizzy to shiny and soft. It has made her curls a little less defined — they are softer, more wavy looking — but they look so much healthier, which is a huge plus! I’ve even fallen in love with the products. My hair is wavy-straight (is that even a term?) and the shampoo and conditioner leaves my hair shiny and super soft.
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
As part of the “Love Your Curls” campaign, Dove recently released the new Love Your Curls book written by best-selling author, Taiye Selasi and illustrated by Annick Poirieris. The beautiful book is a poetic tribute to curly hair. It was inspired by the thousands of stories from women with curly hair. The real stories from real women inspired the poems in the book and are intended to represent and inspire curly girls of all ages.
My curly-haired girl and I had so much fun reading through the poems in the book. It was a great bonding experience and I know she loved connecting with the stories written by other curly girls.
If you or someone you love has curly hair, I would encourage you to download and share the e-book. It is free to download and the cool thing is you can personalize it with a custom dedication and illustration for the curly girl in your life. Then you can share it on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. Visit Dove.com/LoveYourCurls to get started!
