Thank you to Dove™ for sponsoring this #LoveYourHair story.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would be blessed with one son and 5 daughters. I knew a lot would go into parenting and I had many goals. My number one goal has always been, to help our daughters to be strong and confident young ladies.
Growing up, I was never confident and always felt awkward. Oh, how I wanted to love my hair. When I was really young, it was very long, then my Abuela cut it all off. So it was time to start over. I survived the mullet years and later could barely reach the heights my bangs were expected to acquire. Now I tell the kids, “I let my hair do what it wants to do.”
I think there have always been some pluses to my hair; it’s thick and healthy. In knowing that I learned that my hair has its own set of rules and doesn’t care about the days’ trends. I give it a curl all around, run my fingers through it and that is how I feel my best. Now that it is my daughter’s turn to love their hair, I let them do whatever style they want. Each one has their own type of hair and style that they prefer. That is why I love this Dove™ Hair campaign which is meant to empower mothers to be a leader in their daughter’s hair confidence by teaching them how to love their hair.
I didn’t realize it, but Dove™ Hair found that 8 in 10 women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way. For many, this starts at an early age. I love my all daughters’ hair. The two youngest have thin straight hair. Our middle daughter has thicker straight hair and preteen has amazingly thick hair. They all enjoy have their hair done and playing with hair styles. Sometimes they just want their hair to lay where it may, and I’m ok with that. What I like the most is they know what they want, even at the youngest of ages, they aren’t trying to be like anyone else. What is most important, is they are having fun and are feeling confident about themselves.
