Growing up, there was a time that I didn’t like having curly hair. It was different than my friends hair, uncontrollable and often frizzy because I wasn’t using the right hair care products. It’s important to love your hair but it wasn’t until I became an adult that I truly came to appreciate having curly hair. Now, I love it! So much so that I am ecstatic that both my kiddos have curly hair.

Then it happened…My daughter wanted to have straight hair. I guess people tend to want what they do not have. I didn’t want her to be an adult before she realized just how special her curly hair was so I would to tell her how beautiful her hair was and how much I loved it. Thankfully, she also consistently receives compliments on her hair and how they wish they had her curls.

I am happy to report that she now loves her curls!!!!

Did you know that 8 in 10 women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way? Unfortunately, too many girls start to feel that pressure at a young age. That is why Dove Hair is committed to broadening the definition of beautiful hair and ensuring that hair is a source of confidence, not anxiety for both women and girls. Dove Hair believes a positive role model can greatly impact a girl’s confidence. In fact, a recent Dove study found that 82% of girls learn to care about themselves from their mother.

As a mother (parent, mentor, friend), you can make a difference and help ensure she grows up feeling confident. It’s important to love your hair so celebrate the beauty of your daughter’s hair today–so she loves her hair tomorrow. Tell her why you love her hair and inspire her to do the same by creating and sharing a custom #LoveYourHair animated message with @Dove: http://bit.ly/2gDMraF

*I’m thrilled to be working with Dove & Unilever to encourage mothers to share a #LoveYourHair selfie. By doing so, we’ll hopefully pass along much needed hair confidence to our daughters.
