Thank you, Dove, for the recent natural hair styling session with Cynthia Alvarez using your new Dove Quench Absolute line for curly girls! I’ve loved Dove products for many years and recently reviewed the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil (which I also love). So when I was presented the opportunity to participate in a professional styling session with the new Dove Quench Absolute line and Cynthia Alvarez I was super excited.
The Dove Quench Absolute line is part of their Advanced Hair Series and was specifically created for ALL curly girls. There are 4 products in the Dove Quench Absolute line: Shampoo, Conditioner, Restoration Mask and Crème Serum. I was really excited to try the new products but I was also a little worried. Like most naturals, I wash, condition and style my own hair; I haven’t had my hair professionally styled since LAST FEBRUARY when I got my hair straightened so I was REALLY hesitant. One because I didn’t know anything about the products (even though Dove is a reputable company with quality products) and two because I’m so terrified that that the gorgeous locks I’ve been growing since November 2009 will accidentally be damaged by someone else.
Once I saw Cynthia working on other bloggers including Ty also known as Gorgeous in Grey (check me and all of the other bloggers out in her HelloBeautiful.com coverage) I knew I had nothing to worry about. Not only was Cynthia very gentle with everyone’s curls, but I saw so were the Dove Quench Absolute products. Everyone’s curls looked shiny and healthy.
As you can see from the picture below, my twist out was gorgeous once Cynthia was done.
Before the styling session I sent Cynthia some pictures of my hair and what my hair “troubles” are. The same as all curly girls: retaining moisture. Cynthia told me to come to the set with my hair prepped for styling as normal in two strand twists. I washed and twisted my hair the night before with VERY little product, if any – I can’t remember.
Cynthia used the Dove Quench Absolute Crème Serum and Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Here are the steps Cynthia took to achieve my signature twist out.
I really love the results of my twist out and it was really nice to have my hair styled by someone else for a change. I can’t wait to use the entire line in an upcoming wash day and share my results with you dolls! Have you ladies tried the Dove Quench Absolute line? What’s your favorite Dove product?
