>> this morning we are kicking off something new. there has been a debate over straight versus curly hair. dove hair focuses on moms daughters and their curly tresses. >> do you like your hair? >> no. >> you don't like your hair? >> i want my hair to be straight. when you have your hair straight it's really smooth. >> do you think that's more beautiful? >> yeah. >> i sat down with some of the
8:47 am
women and their daughters who participated in the dove hair campaign to find out more about their hair struggles. >> it gets in my face a lot. it's curly and bouncy and puffy. >> i would have to sort of damp it and brush through it. >> even at an early age, their curls are a hot topic. jewel and asia are 6 and 12 and karina age 6 are aware of their curly hair. >> i at least touch it and pull it like this and do this. >> do you think it looks better straight? >> i feel it's easier to do and looks better. >> it's a love-hate relationship their moms are well aware of. >> she said i want it straight. it's too poofy. >> she used to give me a hard
8:48 am
time letting me leave her hair loose. >> both moms and daughters took part in a dove hair campaign all about curly hair and we were with them when they watched the campaign for the first time. >> do you like your hair? >> no. >> you don't like your hair? >> i want my hair to be straight because when you have your hair straight it's really smooth. >> do you think that's more beautiful? >> yeah. >> it doesn't really feel good to have curly hair. i try to make it straight but it doesn't work. i try to do this. but it doesn't work. >> sometimes i just wish i could rip it out, but i'm not going to do that. >> i think about my hair that i don't want it anymore. >> what did you think when you saw that? >> sad. upsetting of course to see that. >> there so many girls out there and even women that feel less
8:49 am
confident with their curly hair. >> elizabeth and claudia realize they set the tone for how their daughters feel about themselves and their hair. >> the majority of the time i wore it straight. it was an eye-opening experience. i wear it mostly curly now. i realize i'm her number one role model. what we portray as mothers carry on. >> they hope to be part of the solution encouraging their girls to love their hair and love themselves. >> what do you tell your girls? >> i think they are beautiful. they look beautiful and i want them to be confident with their curls. >> her hair is what's gorgeous and shiny and beautiful and curly. i love it. >> if you look at yourself now, what do you say? >> it's still puffy, but it's still pretty. the curls are really, really curly. i love it. it's yours.
8:50 am
so be you. >> so why does it seem so many women and young girls are so focused on their curls? child psychology jenna is here and psycho therapist nicky walton blogs about women and hair. you see the gorgeous girls in the campaign. they have problems with their hair. they are so perfect and beautiful. where does this come from? >> we know that image of beauty comes from mothers or parents to their daughters and comes from the media. we know there is an image we are trying to project that straight and sleek is what's normal and seen as beautiful. that gets passed down and the girls get stuck there. >> straight hair is the standard of beauty period. >> is it? >> it truly is. there would not be a campaign like this if it was not necessary. there wouldn't be websites like mine if this was not necessary. our hair does not look as
8:51 am
acceptable and professional in its natural state. that's crazy. this is needed. totally needed. >> you were a young girl who grew up not loving your hair. what changed for you? >> i went to a college far away from my hometown. i had no access to hair care. i hated my hair. i wore it straight all of my life. the moment that i got away from the curling iron and the flat iron i didn't know what to do. my self esteem plummeted. my boyfriend, now husband said you are a psychology major. i'm a psycho therapist now. you are going to need to look at this. this is not healthy. i started exploring and eventually embraced my curls and started a website to help other women to make it easier and give us a platform to come together and inspire etch other. we need that. >> it is about the role models whether you are a mom and it's the women in your life giving you the messages. >> i would like to say it's not
8:52 am
just women. the more people in your life moms dads aunts uncles are saying embrace this part of you. girls are seven times more likely to embrace that part of them. that leads them to be confident. >> i wanted blue eyes and blond hair growing up. embrace the difference. >> that's a slight difference too. for a lot of women it's the grass is only greener. with highly textured hair it's more than that. there is psychology there. the more special stigma that we have to fight through. >> jennifer and nicky, thank you both. we want you to celebrate your curly looks. share your photos with with #curlpower. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

8:56 am
unless it's a blatant mistake, you have to take responsibility for it. i'm glad i stepped up. i'm glad i had the experience of doing the show to bring attention to the charity that i played for. >> shawn, you are playing for character counts in iowa. it's good on both counts. >> yeah. >> you stayed nice and not everyone did. good to s good morning. i'm chris kato. clouds have moved in now. let's get your first alert forecast with meteorologist bill henley. bill? >> limited breaks in the clouds. a little break in the pocono mountains and the view from big bear is a cloudy one. mostly cloud and 25 degrees in the mountains.

9:01 am
oh please. >> patriots beat the you know what out of the colts 45-7. the claim here is that the patriots provide 12 balls for the game deflated them ever so slightly to give an advantage to tom brady on the ballot weather conditions. it's easier to grip and throw when it's wet if the ball is defleeted. we don't know yet but there is an information as they go to the super bowl. >> that would not change the out come of the game. they would be fined or lose a draft pick if it's proven to be true. >> bill belichick and there is history there. >> the coach of the ravens accused them are a bizarre substitution. they have tricks with a lot of

9:04 am
he was randomly tweeting about snipers. >> he went on the facebook page and praised bradley cooper's performance in the film and the film's antiwar sentiment. seth rogen adding to the controvercy we this tweet on sunday saying american sniper reminds me of a movie showing ingloerin "inglourious basterds"." it is glory or antiwar film. it's more about the legacy of all of the troop when is they come home from war and having to readjust and what they are dealing with to assimilate back to normal lives. not in a normal frame of mind. >> i've seen the movie twice and i'm not sure what is pro war.
9:05 am
it's hell when you are there and it's hell when you get home. >> from the first scene he has to decide whether or not he is going to shoot a young boy. this is not what i signed up for. when i interviewed clint eastwood, he is very antiwar and he said this is a love story and about a family and what war does to families. # >> whatever you want to take from it. >> at this man's funeral, people lined the streets in the rain and cold to salute him and thank him for his service to this country. chris kyle, his wife, they sacrificed so much and she continues to sacrifice. can you imagine what that is like for her? it's capturing his life and what he did, but she has to relive this as a widow.
9:06 am
michael moore, the whole notion of tweeting things and then pretending or whatever you want -- i'm one of those you said it own it kind of people. you deal with it. every action as a consequence. to say i wasn't talking about that. michael moore whether you like him or not, smart guy and brilliant filmmaker and exposed a lot of what was happening in the auto industry. you can't take that from him. to say i just randomly -- what is that? stop it. knock it off. >> toothless tiger. >> i'm fired up. we saw this picture. he was in disguise and we saw this picture. i thought maybe he had licorice
9:07 am
or chocolate will color out your tooth. no, it turns out tiger woods lost a tooth. a photographer, they were in italy to see his girlfriend, lindsey vonn and photographers rushed the scene and someone knocked out tiger's tooth. the camera knocked out his tooth. what i love about this he didn't leave. he was there for lindsey, tooth missing and all. >> they were talking about that. >> on the ground. >> is that a cap? you are in pain. it's shooting pain. >> you read the story and you had a security detail as he does. they didn't see that happen at any point? there was no big brouhaha.
9:08 am
it may well have happened and i believe it did, but it was a mysterious moment that lindsey said he keeps wearing that stupid scarf. >> he looks like a cat and not like the next one where you lose a tooth. >> call us and let us know. the mystery of the tooth. >> this is dedicated to our doctor friend. had the middle of the program, she said i'm feeling angry. it's a combination of angry and hungry. we got a new app called hangry that offers a solution. >> i have breakfast at 4:00 a.m. and by the time we start our show together, i'm blind with hunger. you have people don't need. >> feeling a little sorry for

>> the last several years have been tough on homeowners. doorgd trulia, the housing market is 75% back to normal levels. mortgage rates have hit the lowest levels since 2013. the going rate for a 30-year mortgage was 3.66%. >> the question is is this the time to buy or refinance? we are waiting it out. here with a real estate quiz we have senior personal finance correspondent sharon epperson and mike aubrey. good morning to both of you. before we get back to this, get to this quiz break it down. what do you mean that the market is 75% back to normal and when does it get to 100%? >> if you look at peak levels from 2005, that's what you are
9:16 am
referring to. we are most of the way back, but not there yet. when is that going to happen? if i knew the answer, i would be sitting on a beach drinking something fruit we an umbrella in it. we are at least a year out from peak levels. 2015 will be pretty flat. >> why are rates as low as they are. are they going even lower? >> the falling stock prices and oil prices a lot of them have you worried about global growth. this caused a lot of people to get into bonds. bond yields have fallen and they are tied to mortgage rates. we have seen them fall over the last several weeks. we have more reports that make us worried about the health of the economy. lots of people think we could see rates fall either further, but how low will they go? no one knows and it's hard to pick the bottom. they are low and attractive to a lot of people. >> sitting on the beach.
9:17 am
you got this quiz for us. >> yes. the first question is if you are in the market to buy a house, should you lock your rate now or later? >> you said they are going down. >> you should do it now because you don't know how much they are going to fall. lock in the rate right now. you are still -- think about last year when you were at 4.5%. we are further ahead of the game right now. >> that's like being under the bridge trying to catch a falling knife. the out come is not going to be good. >> what town are you from? next question, mr. danger. >> if you are thinking about selling your home, should you do it now or later? >> agreed. 100%. inventory is very very low. i think if you want to sell your house, get it on the market now
9:18 am
and you are likely going to get more later as inventory starts to go up. >> you want to make sure you can get at least 20% of the equity or more so you can buy another home so you don't have to pay the mortgage insurance. if you are a renter trying to become a first time homeowner, should you buy now or later? >> this is why i say that. rates are great. most people who want to be a first time home buyer don't realize how much goes into it and how much they need to afford. it's much more than just mortgage rates. i say later just so that you have time to do your homework. rates are great and if you know you can afford the down payment and your housing costs will be less than 25 to 30% of your income. if you haven't done that, wait. >> to qualify later.
9:19 am
>> we will have to point that out. >> you are thinking about refinancing. now or later? >> absolutely. i agree. 100%. we are in a market place where -- sharon said it. i think that we don't know where the 10-year bond will go, but we are seeing money at a 52-week low right now and i don't see it going a lot lower unless people give it away for free. >> if you bought your house in the last couple of years and lower your rate by one percentage point and recoup the cost it will incur to refinance in the next year or two, it makes sense. otherwise you may want to crunch the numbers unless you will be in your house for a long time to recoup. >> it's a tie. >> up next, it could be much worse for your health than you thought. >> we will catch up with nick
