During the course of the month, Dove Hair introduced Love Your Curls Emojis, the first emoji keyboard designed to represent kinky hair.
It's basically a line of curly-haired emojis for ladies who are black, brown, white, and in between.
The emoji's, which were developed in partnership with Snaps, can be used in text and messenger systems, including iMessage, SMS/text, Facebook messenger and WhatsApp. The keyboard contains 27 curly hair designs, with selectable skintones and hair colors—resulting in a total of 131 curly emoji variations, and even animated GIFs.
To celebrate the launch of the emoji’s, Dove Hair has also partnered with Twitter so that each time users share a #LoveYourCurls moment, a custom Dove Curly Emoji will auto-generate within the tweet.
According to them,
“While Emojis are diversifying (as evidenced by the last update ), there is still a “one size fits all” for hair – straight and sleek, the traditional beauty ideal,” Dove noted in a press release.
“Knowing it takes extensive time to petition Unicode to update its keyboard, Dove Hair will offer an immediate solution for all of the curly women and girls who currently have no accurate representation of their hair when ‘speaking’ in the increasingly common social language of Emojis.
“The Dove Love Your Curls Emojis will be available for FREE download in the App Store and Google Play on November 4, 2015.”
Ladies! What do you think?
I think this is huge! It particularly signifies progress. It means natural haired women are finally been recognized and we're being paid attention to.
Will you be downloading?

Love, coils and curls.
