Dove Celebrates Female Empowerment with #MyHairMySay stories

by - Sunday, March 10, 2019

I am not new to trying different hairstyles in the past. I didn't find contentment with my boring, straight hair which is why I switched to different hairdos through the years. It was fun experimenting with hair color, fringe cut, and perm until I got the looks of misunderstanding and judgments. All thanks to my friends because they helped me realize that self-expression should prevail more than anything else.

My different hairstyles through the years

However, I know a few people who are still struggling to get out of the box because of hurtful words that can be possibly thrown to them. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has their back because Dove also encourages women to be bold and fearless inside and out this women's month.



Dove launched the My Hair, My Say Gallery in Greenbelt 5 to showcase portraits of real women from different walks of life, with diverse hair stories. I saw the different anecdotes of these ladies responding to their naysayers and encouraged other women to enjoy their hair the way they want to.

I also witnessed talented Dove girls who showed their singing prowess. The hair they sported echoed their greatness in the music they play.

Through the exhibit, Dove encourages women to pursue the hair they want without the fear of unkind comments, and at the same time, without the fear of damage. Dove featured their full product range at the event, which is formulated with Dove's best care for damage-free hair.
