Social media can be a great platform for spreading love and positivity, and that’s exactly what this TikTok challenge does.
The Curly Girl Challenge was created to encourage girls who often shy away from their curly hair due to stigma or the feeling of wanting to ‘fit in’, to feel confident enough to wear their hair naturally curly and embrace it.
Girls all over the world are taking to TikTok to show off their natural beauty in one of the most positive TikTok challenges yet.
What is the TikTok Curly Girl Challenge?
A new challenge has become popular on TikTok called the Curly Girl Challenge.
It’s not really a challenge at all, and you don’t really have to do anything. The trend is all about girls with curly hair embracing their natural beauty and letting their curls show.
Lots of girls have been taking to TikTok to show off their beautiful locks to the world with confidence.
Fighting the stigma against curly hair
Within society, there has always been a stigma around curly hair, with many curly haired girls feeling like they should straighten their hair in order to fit into mainstream society.
In this Cosmopolitan article, a woman gives examples of times in their lives where having curly hair has limited them, such as not feeling like they fit in within a strict office environment and as a result having to spend hundreds on treatments to straighten their hair.
The Curly Girl Challenge on TikTok aims to encourage girls to embrace their natural hair rather than shying away from it and feeling the need to change it in order to fit in with others.
Show off your natural curls on TikTok
The hashtag #curlygirlchallenge already has over 1.1 million views on TikTok, as thousands of girls take to the social media app to show off their natural hair.
If you’re a girl with curly hair too, embrace it and film your own TikTok. All you need to do is film a video of yourself with your curly hair, and add the song ‘Curlygirl’ by John Steve Kend.
Then, upload your video to TikTok and empower thousands of other women like yourself.
