If you're the mama of a daughter with curls, you probably already know how gorgeous she is. However, so many curly girls grow up feeling self conscious about their natural strands.

Hearing about how beautiful they are is one of the best ways to help your girl love her curls. Here's what to tell your daughter about her curls. You can also save these words for yourself! If there's anything you'd add to this list, make sure to drop us a line and let us know.
What To Tell Your Daughter About Her Curls
Your daughter looks to those closest in her life to help guide and shape her self confidence. Therefore, it's up to you to tell her how beautiful her curls are! Encourage her by telling her how her curls are perfect exactly as they are, and make sure to talk positively about the curly hair of those around her, as well. Banish negativity about curls from your home to create a supportive environment. Tell her often how her curls are perfect just as they are, and that they don't need to change in order for her to be respected, valued, or loved.
Teach her how to care for it:
Part of helping your little learn to love her curls is to help minimize her frustration when it comes to managing her strands. As a result, you'll need to help her learn how to care of it. If you don't have curly hair, you'll want to educate yourself so you can help her fully understand how wonderful her strands are, and how to make sure her curls look great with as minimal frustration as possible.
When it comes to helping your little one accept such an integral part of herself, it's important to also raise up others. Whenever you can, compliment other curly women on their beautiful strands. It never hurts to compliment, support, and empower others. Remember, your daughter is learning from you, so guide her through life by showing kindness and compassion towards others as well.
