Dove Hair: Love Your Curls Video Reaction

Happy Monday loves!

I don’t usually post anything too serious but I feel like this video should be put out there everywhere.

It’s a video about a few girls with curly hair getting interviewed and getting asked about their hair. All of them said they didn’t like it. These girls are about 5-13 years old and have such a hate relationship with their curly hair! One of them said that she wants to have straight hair because its smooth and she thinks it makes her look beautiful. Another one mentioned that she wanted to “just rip it out”.

As I was watching this video, it really made me tear up! Coming from personal experience, I’ve been in those situations and still do until now. Kids in elementary and middle school were always making fun of my curly hair and it did make me think twice about my hair.  It’s sad to hear these young kids not feeling “beautiful” for not having straight hair.

I’m personally not a fan of my curly hair, but I figure out ways to style it differently. (especially if leaving my hair down curly, it gets very frizzy)

Curly hair is beautiful hair, some people have always wanted curly hair. All hair is beautiful. It does help though to have other people in our lives that care about us, no matter what hair type we have.

I know this was a very random post, but I saw it and just had to put my opinion in this. It struck a cord with me.

 

Only 4 out of 10 curly haired girls think their hair is beautiful! 😦

When I first saw this, I was a bit intimidated due to seeing it green. However, after I did try it, I loved it! It’s not too sweet, healthy and it does fill you up. I like the fact that they do have cashews, sunflower seed kernels and dates.

I don’t have an exact picture of it because I was so intrigued that I ate it before I could take a picture of it!

Lastly, I received a Serengetee Fabric Swatch.

My Verdict:

I honestly wouldn’t order another Conscious Box just because I can’t use all of the products I received. I did like Annie’s Bunny Grahams, the Raw Rev 100 bar, the Crystal towelettes, and the Weleda shampoo and conditioner.

What is a Rose?

Hey guys
I figured I’d do a little something different than my usual posts. In high school, I used to write oh so many poems. Some of them didn’t rhyme and some did. This is my favorite one that I’ve written. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

Photo 1 (3)

What is a rose?

What is a red rose,

when lovers give it to one another?

When in their hands, it fades and dies,

so will their love.

 

What is a yellow rose,

symbolize in friendship?

The friends we have had in the past,

the present and the future.

 

What is a white rose,

represent in a wedding?

To remind us that we do have a love,

Even though we may not be aware of it.

 

So what is a rose,

in all colors and all occasions?

To remind us of life,

the good and the bad.
