Hey ladies! I’m very excited to share with you this amazing new hair product system by Dove Hair that is completely tailored to women and girls with curly, coarse hair, like me! Whether your hair is soft and wavy, thick and coily, or full and curly, the NEW Dove Hair Quench Absolute system is just for you.
I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about this system before I used it, it can be difficult to find a website with products that caters for tight curls like I have. I was thinking, is this really for coarse hair? I didn’t want to try another brand that promoted hair products tailored to curly, coarse hair, but didn’t contain the must-have ingredients to keep my hair shiny, soft and most importantly, healthy. But I quickly found that these products work- it is a three-part system that nourishes and fortifies the hair for growth and length retention. The formulas, infused with protein, nutrients and Buriti Oil, provide a nourished, smooth finish, giving me shine and manageability that lasts all day, I’ve even recommended this product line to some of my friends that have long straight hair that tend to use some of the best hair rollers 2020 has seen produced, to style their hair and make sure it’s kept curly all day long!
The scent of the products quickly drew me in upon opening the package. To me, it doesn’t smell like the typical “hair care” product. The scent is very intriguing, as it has a sweet, feminine fragrance. Upon using the Ultra Nourishing Shampoo, I immediately enjoyed how effortlessly the product washes into my hair. While it does somewhat depend on how one washes their hair, I noticed that the does a great job of removing product buildup, and restoring moisture. It gently cleanses curly hair, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It leaves my strands strengthen from the core.
I applied the Ultra Nourishing Conditioner right after shampooing. It absorbs effortlessly into the hair and it increases the manageability of my curls for a smooth finish. I massaged it in, focusing on the ends and let it sit for about 5 minutes before rinsing out. When used at least once a week, this conditioner works very well, helping my curly maintain strength and shine. I love this conditioner, as my naturally coarse hair is revived and strengthened from the core.
My favorite product in the Dove Hair Quench Absolute system is the Intense Restoration Mask. It comes in a short, round jar, and has a rich, creamy formula. I used this product as the main ingredient in my monthly, deep-conditioning treatment. I apply this treatment to my hair once a month, as it restores the strength and softness of my strands and leaves it smooth and manageable. You can leave this on your hair for 3 to 5 minutes if you’re on the go; or, for an intense condition as I do, leave it on for about an hour or two and let the heat from your head open up the cuticles to deeply moisturize and strengthen. It envelopes each curl to deliver intense nourishment for ultimate smoothness and hydration.
Finally, enhance your curly strands with the Supreme Creme Serum. It’s Dove’s first curl, leave-in nourishing treatment. A few pumps of this product will give you just the right nourishment you need for long lasting frizz control and curl definition. For my hair texture, this product worked great for frizz control. Its fast absorbing, lightweight and creamy serum has high levels of glycerine to penetrate and nourish hair. Use it on wet or dry hair. It’s great for those with very curly hair who do the “wash-n’-go” method, only needing a product to define the curls, helping them remain bouncy and full of volume all day long.
Did you know that one in three women in the US have curly hair? And women and girls with curly hair feel less confident? Only 4 in 10 little girls with curly hair think their hair is beautiful, and only 10% of women in the U.S. with curly hair feel proud of their hair. Dove Hair wants all women to love their curls, so they launched the “Love Your Curls” campaign to encourage women to celebrate their curls and inspire future generations to do the same. Girls are more likely to feel beautiful and proud of their hair if people around them do. So check out the NEW“Love Your Curls” poetic book- an amazing tribute to curly hair. The book is filled with beautiful images and real stories from real women, intended to represent and inspire curly girls of all ages. Written by best-selling author, Taiye Selasi and illustrated by Annick Poirier, this book is a must have for moms to teach their girls to love the uniqueness of not only their hair, but themselves. Upon reading it I was taken aback by the creative ways these women expressed their passion and celebration for one of the very things that make us who we are. Books like these are so beneficial. They are a useful resource for people who might not be all that confident with their hair. For younger girls struggling with their curls, reading these sorts of stories can make them feel normal and make them realize that other people also experience these feelings. Perhaps more of these books should be released. If any authors have created books like these to encourage young people to be more confident in themselves, they should really try and find a way to release their work. Whilst it can be difficult to get recognized by a publishing company, authors could always consider looking into some self publishing companies to see if they can release their book using that method instead. Many authors often find it easier to publish the book themselves, it can save time and can distribute the book to the world much quicker. This should, hopefully, allow more people to see your work. With more books like Taiye’s, young girls will learn to love their hair and will grow in confidence. Everyone should #LoveYourCurls. It’s one of the great things that makes you, you.
