Love your curls. A smile beamed across my face when I saw the Dove Hair Love Your Curls book and actually held it in my hand. To be honest, as I started to read the first few pages and look at the pictures, I got overwhelmed with emotion. Love Your Curls, is a poetic tribute to curly hair. Written by best-selling author, Taiye Selasi and illustrated by Annick Poirier, it is intended to represent and inspire curly girls of all ages.
As I flipped through the pages and read stories of other women who tried to hide their natural hair through straightening and blow outs, I saw myself. Although my mother never relaxed my hair, I began having my hair straightened before I was five years old. I went on to wear my hair straight for over 20 years. It took a damaging keratin treatment for me to see how beautiful my natural curls are. My mother also played a hand in me embracing my natural hair. I watched her grow out her relaxed hair before natural hair in the African American community was truly accepted. She set the example.

After trying the entire line, I have to give Dove Hair a round of applause. They have really mastered what natural curls need the most, which is moisture. I was pleased with the entire line. The shampoo left my hair slightly dry, but my hair was amazingly soft and the next steps of the conditioner, mask and serum left my curls defined, full and soft. I love the way my hair looks! The products have amazing slip for detangling hair and overall, great moisture power.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Dove Hair for creating not only a line of hair care for natural curls, but a book of encouragement along the way.
