This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Dove Hair, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #LoveYourCurls #pmgdove http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
For years I was always that girl with the curly/frizzy hair. I didn’t really know what to do with it. This was back before straighteners. It was just a pile of mess for most of my childhood. Because of this, my hair was in a ponytail 90% of the time. I was embarrassed by it and it was just easier to throw it back and not have to deal with it. Straight hair just seemed to be the only way to go. I mean, look at the emoji keyboard! Only straight hair there.
Fast forward to high school and I fell in love with straighteners. I thought they were awesome -that is, until an amazing thing happened. More and more girls in my class began to “scrunch” their hair. Do you remember this? Even the girls who didn’t really have any curl or body to their hair began to curl or scrunch their hair because they wanted that body. Around this time and during my early years of college, I began to change my attitude about my curls. I began embracing them instead of straightening them. I found out very quickly that my hair enjoyed being itself a lot more than when I was burning it every day.
My hair began to grow faster, thicker and healthier (until I had kids, but that’s a whole other story). Now that I am a mother, I am so thankful that I have curly hair because I can jump out of the shower, run a brush through it, put a little product in it and go. No more shame. In fact, it is extremely convenient and a big time-saver. I don’t have to spend an hour on it unless I just want to and it still looks good!
Dove Hair is celebrating curls by creating the Dove #LoveYourCurls Emoji keyboard! I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I love it! I can finally express my curly-headed self with curly headed emojis! They are so much fun and my friends who have curly hair have also gotten on board and are enjoying them as well. They are so much fun!
