In modern times, we are bombarded with all sorts of different ads and the majority of these ads are targeted at women. Very early on in the game, a bunch of men sat around a table and discussed how they were able to make more money. The solution that they came up with was that they could target women’s bodies by convincing women that they were something that they needed to fix.
As it would turn out, this was an ingenious idea as thousands of companies were able to offer their product as a solution to the overall problem which was women’s bodies. Companies were able to sell cold cream to help with wrinkles, therapies that would help with cellulite, and pills that would help with losing weight. On top of all of this, women were also required to wear makeup, to wear their hair in a certain way, and still make sure that dinner is on the table for when their husband gets home.
While things have slightly improved as time has gone on, women are still the target of many advertisements and so this post will explore how to truly love yourself no matter what your natural hair may be like.
Find inspirational woman that you look up to when you are wanting to truly love yourself no matter what your natural hair may be like
Just like how clothing comes in and out of fashion, this is also the case when it comes to hair and makeup. Depending on the era, straight hair may be in style, curly hair may be in style, and then short or long hair may be in style. But whatever the case may be, this usually leaves those who don’t have this type of hair naturally feeling bad about themselves.
This may lead to people investing in very expensive treatments or wigs just to hide the fact that they don’t have the type of locks that are currently on-trend. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with playing with one’s style or taking care of one’s appearance it is important to know that things are only in-trend because someone decided that it was, and that there is nothing wrong with people if they do not fit this mould. This is why it can be such a good idea to find some style inspiration from someone who has similarly natural hair so that people can encourage themselves to embrace this natural beauty.
Use positive affirmations each morning when wanting to truly love yourself no matter what your natural hair may be like
Another great way to improve one’s confidence is to repeat positive statements in the mirror each morning. While this may feel slightly uncomfortable at first (as most people are not used to saying nice things to themselves) it can be extremely helpful as people are able to combat all of the negative messages that they are given from advertisements. For instance, someone could say “I am learning to love myself more and more each day and I easily embrace what I already have.”
Another great affirmation may be something along the lines of “even though I sometimes don’t like the way I look, I deeply and completely love myself anyway.” Whatever the case may be, people are able to tailor this to themselves and to the feelings that tend to come up for them when they look in the mirror. This way, people are able to slowly but surely embrace the way that they look and their locks.
