Let the countdown begin...
2️⃣7️⃣Days until we embark on this journey together my loves.
Curly Soulz is for “Us”
After 5 years of being saturated in a community of fros and curly gurus our creator @gedilovee
has come to an important conclusion. “ The natural hair movement has allows us sooo much progress but I think it is time for the movement itself to progress. What we are celebrating is the choice of self, not the ability to achieve a look that comes naturally to us. We are finally choosing ourselves over all the other alternatives the world has to offer us. The goal isn’t to market our community on a “Big Long Curly Fro”. The goal isn’t to ignore silenced problems that have been the product of that kind of celebration. The goal is beyond the beautiful group selfies. The goal isn’t to achieve a look because it was a beauty standard we were running away from in the first place.
This is our embrace, this is our self-love war. The celebration begins once we chose ourselves. The celebration is about ever girl who’s brave enough to do so at what ever part of her journey she resides. Once we conquer truly loving ourselves we can claim our rightful spots in mainstream beauty culture. I think it needs to start with true self-love that is rooted deep... beyond our hair... and how we do that is by rewriting how modern day beauty culture has defined and shaped our very own. And then this level of “self-love” needs to result in our efforts to build and create the opportunity and representation in mainstream beauty culture that we deserve. Every little girl deserves to see herself represented every little girl deserves to see someone like her celebrated.” - @gedilovee
Self-Love & Representation
Why? Because on the other side of these pretty pictures and group selfies are women with dreams who are looking for the opportunity to make it easier for the next girl who dares to conquer the world as herself!
And with opportunity
representation is inevitable.
The goal is to normalize our beauty culture so we don’t need a movement to do so.
