National Love Your Hair Day
annually on October 10th (since 2017)
No matter if your hair is curly or straight, or if you have a lot of it or just a small amount, National Love Your Hair Day is for embracing what you've been born with. Created by Carolyn Aronson and her haircare company, It's a 10 Haircare, the day is for "people to love themselves, appreciate others and join together to impact change." It celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of hair—and humanity—and is aptly celebrated on 10/10.
On the holiday's first celebration, in 2017, the It's a 10 Haircare street team gave out 10,000 bottles of It's a 10 Haircare Miracle Leave-in Product in Times Square in New York City. Itsa10Haircare.com also had a sale on the day. For the second annual celebration, It's a 10 Haircare called for people to design their own dream hair product; ten finalists and one winner were chosen. The company's street team also handed out 100,000 free samples of It's a 10 Haircare Miracle Leave-in Product in ten cities across the country.
How to Observe National Love Your Hair Day
The day could be celebrated by checking to see if It's a 10 Haircare has organized anything special for this year's event or has any sales on their haircare products. Buying some new products for your hair is a great way to show your hair some love, and although you don't need to buy them from It's a 10 Haircare, it makes the most sense to do so. You could show how much you love your hair by sharing a picture using the hashtag #loveisinthehair. In past years, people have shared pictures in the lead-up to the day, and It's a 10 Haircare featured ten people on the holiday. More than anything, the day is for celebrating the uniqueness of your hair, as well as the uniqueness and diversity of the hair of others. It's about embracing what you are born with, so even those with little or no hair can celebrate!
