Okay ladies…lets talk hair! Clean hair, dirty hair, bedhead whatever you got. Rencently @Dove found that 8 in 10 women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way. It never even dawned on me that this was actually a thing. I mean I know women feel that pressure with being a certain dress size and even the clothes they wear, but really hair never occurred to me. Realizing now that this is a real thing and that it can begin at an early age, I want all of my daughters to know that their hair is beautiful and unique. When you think about it, everyones hair is completely different from one another. It’s kind of like each head of hair is much like a snowflake…no two are the same. This makes us all unique and special in our own way. It’s was sets us apart and makes us awesomely different. I still remember all of the ways my mom spoke to me each day secretly building my confidence. I remember then she told me I was artitic. I believed it and that confidence stuck with me anytime I had to create something. I created and it always turned out just the way I hoped. I know what it was the constant reminder and reinforcement that enabeled me to do it each and every time. Looking back and knowing how postivity effected me, I want to make a concious effort to remind all my kids of their stengths in all areas of their lives. And since appearance can be such a tough one for girls to really feel confident about…Im going to start there.
