We have all heard the expression having a bad hair day. This tends to focus on the negative and I know I have done this many times through the years. Having three daughters, I find that I need to think about what this means and what I am teaching them. I want them to be confident and positive so I need to be a role model and show this attitude too.
Growing up, I had curly frizzy hair. It took a while for me to figure out how I liked my hair best and to have confidence with the styles I chose. I love my daughters and want them to know that their hair is beautiful and they should always show their confidence.
As their mother, it is important that they know that I love my hair. I love it so much that I realized it was time to cut about 5 inches off for a more healthy manageable look.
Did you know that Dove Hair found that 8 in 10 women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way? For many, these pressures begin at an early age. I do not want any of my girls to feel this way. From my youngest to my oldest, I want them to be confident and proud. Some days are busy. I try to squeeze in those me time moments with each of my girls and we document with selfies. What I noticed was that each selfie represented happy moments together and that is what counts.
While going through my camera, I found my daughters had taken a few selfies of their own. Here is an example of one of those photos that took me by surprise. Just beautiful.
Dove Hair believes a positive role model can greatly impact a girl’s confidence. In fact, a recent Dove study found that 82% of girls learn to care about themselves from their mother. If I raise confident girls who are proud of themselves and each other, I will feel success.
While at the field one day, my oldest took my sunglasses for her selfie moment.
