Dove Challenges Women to Choose Beautiful

Wow, this film gave me goosebumps. I know I would choose the average. And it seems however a woman chooses she would feel self concious about her choice. I love this movement by Dove and their whole push to help women love themselves just as they are. I love Dove products but the company behind them makes me even more happy to purchase their products.

Dove launches Choose Beautiful
A fresh perspective on women’s relationships with their own beauty – one that truly captures women’s perspectives on a global scale, and hinges on mindfulness.

96% of women do not choose the word “beautiful” to describe the way they look. Choose Beautiful encourages women to understand that they have the power to choose to feel beautiful for themselves every day. The film was shot in five international cities, but the same concept remained: presenting women with a choice regarding the way they view themselves. Each woman had the opportunity to choose “average,” or the frequently avoided “beautiful” as their personal descriptor. Through the results of the film, Dove hopes to encourage women to reconsider the choices they make about their beauty.

Choose Beautiful will culminate at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit in NYC (April 22-24), where Dove hopes to further a multi-dimensional discussion on beauty and self-esteem.

Dove believes that when a woman chooses beautiful, she radiates happiness and confidence that help her reach her full potential, so choose beautiful every day, and encourage every woman and girl in your life to do the same.

Dove Hair Launches #LoveYourCurls Campaign and Film

 

My hair went from wavy to spiral curls at puberty and since then I have to admit I have hated my curls more often than not. When I get my hair highlighted and my stylist straightens it I love how perfect it looks smooth, and straight.

As a mother of a now 10 year old girl I see how early they start to judge themselves and I want to be an example. I am working to embrace my curls and my whole body and lead by example. I love this campaign and the way Dove is helping women of every age embrace and love themselves.

In a recent global study, Dove Hair found that 1 in 3 women in the US have wavy to curly hair, yet the traditional standard of beauty is often considered straight and sleek. In fact…

  • Only 10% of women in the US with curly hair feel proud of their hair
  • Only 4 in 10 girls with curly hair think that their hair is beautiful
  • Little girls are 7X more likely to love their curls if people around them do

The Love Your Curls Film powerfully illustrates the relationship young girls have with their curls (which can often be a source of anxiety, frustration and dislike), and what women can do to help inspire future generations to love and embrace their curly hair.

For more than 10 years, Dove has been committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence and not anxiety. The Love Your Curls campaign promises to be a first in the beauty industry – one that urges women to love their curls in an unprecedented way that will have a powerful cultural impact for adult women, and help set the stage for the next generation to feel more confident about their coils.

 

dove dry shampoo

Along with using better products to bring out my curls I have finally weaned myself to only washing my hair every other day and it has made such a difference in my hair and curls. I always need a little something to freshen up and I am addicted to Dove Dry Shampoo!.

I get lots of cool products to sample one of them being Dry Shampoo and I have tried so many brands, some that cost close to $40. But my favorite remains Dove’s, in fact I just hit Walgreens this week to grab another can. I love how clean and light it is. It gets rid of any grease in my hair and leaves it smelly and looking great and the best part it doesn’t ruin my curls! And if you want to do a big messy bun this is your new best friend. I spray it around the crown of my head let it sit for a moment then work it in. It adds the perfect amount of volume for a beautiful bun look that people will think you took forever creating not two minutes.

Create your own Dove Beauty Chain!

One thing you can count on finding in my house is Dove products. From my favorite Dove body washes to the super creamy Dove Beauty Bar we always have a stock on hand. I love how soft and moisturized it leaves my skin. My favorite part is it works on the littlest guy in my house with sensitive skin all the way to the biggest. A one size fits all cleanser it smells great and works even better.

Since 1957, Dove has been providing real women with real beauty benefits. With 1/4 moisturizing cream and mild cleansers, the Beauty Bar actually helps skin feel more firm and elastic compared to ordinary soap.
