The end of 2014 was a beautiful whirlwind for me because I was selected from an international open call to be in a hair campaign. I had no idea it was actually for Dove until I was asked to come in to the first interview. I sent in pictures of my myself and my hair to the casting email. Before I knew it I was on a flight (business class…whoop!) to Brussels to shoot the campaign with 9 other beautiful curly haired women. The only people who knew about it were my family, as I had to keep it secret until after it came out.
I can’t begin to express how grateful I am to be a part of this natural hair movement with Dove. I truly love my curls. Prior to having “natural” hair; since the age of 13 years old I had my hair chemically relaxed. It was in my late twenties that I decided that I wanted to let my hair grow out the way it naturally is. It took some time to learn how to take care of my new curly hair, definitely trial and error. I think it can be a coming into yourself. Not all curls are created equal, even on your own head! I discovered that less is more for my hair routine. Especially after my hair was cut for the shoot :). I’m back to short hair again but “Oh I love it, love it” #byeafro
Yours in style + curls,
