Everyday women are subconsciously bombarded with images that perpetuate the standard of the 5’ 11’’., size 0, blonde-haired, blue-eyed woman with voluminous straight hair. Although women love to pioneer and partake in ever-evolving hairstyle trends, the combination of cultural and societal pressures make it challenging for young girls and women to accept their natural beauty. For years curly hair has been deemed as a flaw that needs to be corrected and not celebrated. With more women being educated about their hair and feeling empowered to love their curls, Dove wants to broaden the spectrum of beauty with the help of your stories.
Join us as we chat about the importance of loving your curls. We want to hear from moms, students, veteran curlies, and every other curly about finding the courage to embrace your natural selves.
