Have you all seen the recent Dove “Love Your Curls Campaign?” Well let me say, it’s pretty disappointing at best. I found this amazing article on the commercial and all the things it does wrong. It’s really interesting to see this huge surge in “curly love.” From companies that purport to newly be “for naturals.” And also from curly campaigns like this one from Dove where I don’t see a good representation of females that look like me. As the article points out, we just don’t fit in the “curly love” demographic yet. Will we ever?
