Love Your Curls

dove quench absolute




When it comes to hair, I think all girls want the opposite of what they have. Girls with straight hair want curly hair, and girls with curly hair want straight hair. When I was in middle and high school, I spent so much time straightening my hair. If it wasn't straight, I didn't think it was pretty, so I'd just put it up in a bun and not deal with it. 

Did you know that only 10% of women with curly hair feel proud of their hair? I would say I'm surprised, but when I think about how I felt about my own curls, it makes sense. Dove decided to take this statistic and crush it with the "Love Your Curls" campaign and Love Your Curls book. The campaign focuses on encouraging women to love and celebrate their curls and help them realize that their curls are beautiful. The book is a poetic tribute to curly hair that was inspired by thousands of stories from women and girls with curly hair. The book was written by best-selling author, Taiye Selasi, and illustrated by Annick Poirier. Read and share this free e-book by clicking here. You can even create a personalized e-book with a custom dedication and illustration for the curly-haired women and girls in your life and share it on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest!

Dove love your curls

It wasn't until college that I really started to embrace my hair. It's naturally wavy, and I usually have to use a bit of product to make it have pretty curls or non-frizzy waves. I think the most common challenges I've faced with my hair are dryness and frizziness. Dove has created a new line called Dove Quench Absolute, and it's designed specifically for people with curly hair. It provides 4x more defined, natural curls, and it's infused with protein, nutrients and Buriti Oil to provide a nourished, smooth finish. 



As soon as I tried this new line, I fell in love. The Ultra Nourishing Shampoo leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth. The Ultra Nourishing Conditioner revives and strengthens my hair and makes it much more manageable, and the Intensive Restoration Mask provides nourishment to my hair. My favorite product in the new Dove Quench Absolute line is the Supreme Creme Serum. It's a leave-in nourishing treatment that can be used on either wet or dry hair. I've used it every day since I received it. I put it in my hair as soon as I get it out of the shower, and I put it in my dry hair every morning. It really helps reduce frizz and make my hair more vibrant. 

Now, I wear it curly about 99% of the time. I've learned to embrace my curls and fall in love with my hair.

  6. I have naturally wavy hair but I think your curls are gorgeous! I think you hit the nail on the head when you said everyone wants what they don't have. In middle school I always dyed my hair red and dark brown (and honestly both looked really bad haha) because I hated my naturally light hair. Now I'm trying to embrace my fair, wavy hair.

  8. Your hair is beautiful! When my hair grew back post chemo it came in with this funky half wave and half straight! When I try to style it to bring out the curl only half of it curls up and the rest of it just gets stringy with product! ugh! I am jealous of your beautiful curls!

  9. You have truly beautiful hair! Mine is mostly straight with some errant baby waves if I let it dry naturally.. AKA not cute, and it doens't hold any curl at all, despite it being coarse. I feel you on the frizzies, I think I need to give these products a try just for the frizz!

  12. Thanks so much, Meghan! I usually have to put product in my hair too, so I definitely understand the struggle. Frizz is the worst!

  13. Oh no! I've never heard of hair looking the way you described. I hope you're feeling healthy and much better after your chemo though.

  18. Your curls are GORGEOUS! My hair used to be stick straight, but after losing a lot of it due to some medication, it grew back in with a wavy texture! I have always wanted curly hair!

  19. First off- you're BEAUTIFUL!! Second- I love what you said about everyone not loving their natural hair. After having naturally straight hair all my life I got a perm as soon as I went to college haha. It's faded a lot now but definitely changed my hair texture for good!

  26. Thanks for sharing! I have always struggled with having curly hair (not knowing how to deal with it) and wanting straight hair! As I have gotten older, I have started to love my curls more.

  33. SOOOO true about we all want what we don't have! I have straightish hair and ever since I was little curled my hair with foam curlers, curling irons, etc. I even made my mom give me a home perm in the 7th grade. I was left with kinked hair ha. Love you hair!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haha that's so funny! I definitely wanted straight hair all the way!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love your hair! I have weird, in-between hair. It comes out wavy on some strands, straight on others. I really don't get my hair. I always thought I had straight hair lol. So I always have to style it one way or the other because it can't make up its mind!

  36. Awww! Thank you so much! My hair is kind of in-between too. All of the products I use are specifically for curly-haired people and scrunching it helps make it a little better. Unlike yours though, mine is definitely more curly than straight. Who knew hair had a mind of its own??

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love this! And you've pretty much sold me on those products. Good job.

    I hate hate hate hated my hair until I chopped it all off when I was 21. I haven't looked back since and love my hair 4 out of 5 days ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've been using all of these on my hair, and I just love how it feels! Seriously, I'll probably be buying them once I run out.


    I had super, duper long hair, and I always got compliments on it, so I kept it long, but I hated the upkeep. Now I love my short hair! Yay for chopping off our hair!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love tight curls! I wish mine were more curly, but I still love my waves.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm the same way, Claudia! Now I'm wondering why I wasted so much time with that straightener. It took forever.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Dove is such a reliable brand! I love them.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love this campaign too! I'm glad you're embracing your waves!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks, Sydney! My hair is definitely kind of in between. Just awkward waves, but I'm learning to love them.
