5 Daily Affirmations to Help You Love Your Natural Hair
Affirmation is defined as repeating a self-given statement to help one focus on positive self-talk. If you are looking for self love, self acceptance or an overall improvement upon your self-image, affirmations are a great way to start your day with an uplifting message.
For people, especially Black women and girls, with naturally curly or afro-textured hair, we know that going out into the social world can be a very difficult, as there are so many forces coming at you that are screaming the lie "you shouldn't love your hair". This Black History Month, as we celebrate Her Hairstory, we encourage you to include these 5 daily affirmations into your morning routine to help yourself or a loved one practice uplifting and embracing their natural, curly hair.
5 Daily Affirmations
My hair is me, and because it is me, it is beautiful.
My hair is perfect exactly the way it is on my head.
I will love my hair and treat it with kindness and respect.
I will stand up for my hair and demand that others treat it with kindness and respect.
I am the only one who gets to define what makes my hair and me feel or be beautiful.
We hope that incorporating these into yourself or your loved ones daily routine can help them to build up the confidence in their hair that the world is always trying to tear down, one loving and beautiful word at a time.
