Dove #LoveYourCurls with Quench Absolute Collection



Is your hair naturally curly?
Are those curls real?
Where do you get your hair done?
Would you sell your hair to make wigs?

The questions go on and on about my hair.  I've been asked so many questions in regards to my hair. People want to touch it, they want to know how I get it so curly and how can they get the same results! Well let's set the record straight about my curls!  YES, they are 100% natural and all mine.

Funny thing about my curls, growing up as a curly I wasn't always excited about the hair I was blessed with. My mother is not a curly, my dad is the one with the curls.  My mom didn't always know how to care or deal with my hair, since she has stick straight hair.  She did the best she could, with out having any special products for my kind of hair.  My mom used a brush and water...that is all!  She didn't even know about detanglers, which I needed desperately!  My hair was always neatly combed in braids or pig tails, never loose and free.   I got teased a bit about my hair, since I was one of the few kids to have such curly hair in school. One year I made my mom cut it all off, after having waist long hair for many years.  I didn't know the shorter my hair the curlier it would get.  I was devastated to see it so short, so curly and I basically had a little Afro.   It wasn't always fun and many nights I wished and prayed for straight hair.  My sister's hair is also more on the straight side with just a slight wave, but wouldn't be considered curly.   It was difficult for me to understand why I was different and didn't have hair like my mom and sister.  So many years were spent trying to keep my curls under control and tamed.  Growing up we didn't have any special products for curls...nothing seemed to work just right.  My brother and I even made our own "hair gel" out of gelatin. Crazy!  I slicked it back, put it in a bun, braided and hid my curls as much as possible.

Now I am much more comfortable and happy about my curls. Now I know how to care for my curls and what products work best.  Thanks to brands like Dove who make special products which make my curls look fabulous!  I recently was able to try the New Dove Quench Absolute hair care line for curls. Having the right kind of products for curly hair has made a significant difference, in not only the look of my hair, but also the way I feel about my curls.  My curls are much more bouncy and shiny after using Dove Quench Absolute system.  It leaves my hair moisturized, soft and manageable.  Did I mention it also smells great, which is a bonus to loving your curls.  Now I am proud and happy when people compliment my curls.  A day doesn't go by without people (mostly older ladies) telling me I have beautiful hair and so lucky to have curls.

Here is products I've been using from Quench Absolute Collection:

  • Quench Absolute Ultra Nourishing Shampoo
  • Quench Absolute Ultra Nourishing Conditioner
  • Quench Absolute Intensive Restoration Mask
  • Quench Absolute Supreme CrΓ¨me Serum
After just a few uses of NEW Dove Hair Quench Absolute my curls look healthier and feel great. These products provide 4X more defined, natural curls. The three part system nourishes hair. The entire line has really made a difference in the overall appearance of my curls.  The formulas, infused with protein, nutrients and Buriti Oil, provide a nourished, smooth finish. My favorite has been the Quench Absolute Intensive Restoration Mask, which has helped with the dryness and dullness. Just like having the right outfit, having the right hair-care can make you feel more confident as well.

It has taken me many years to love and accept my curls.  I have never really liked to straighten, blow dry or flat iron my curls. Maybe deep down inside I knew these curls made me unique and special. That is how people know me and remember me, I'm the girl with the curls! 

Dove wants to help all women and girls love their curls.  Did you know that women and girls with curly hair tend to feel less confident.  Only 4 in 10 little girls with curly hair think their hair is beautiful.  Only 10% of women in the U.S. with curly hair feel proud of their hair.  All women and girls should be proud and love their hair. Dove Hair launched the #LoveYourCurls campaign to encourage women to celebrate their curls and inspire future generations to do the same.



Dove has a really cute book, which is a poetic tribute to curly hair.  A love of curls for everyone to be inspired and embrace their uniqueness. Real stories from real women inspired the poems in the book.  It's a beautiful and touching book, written by best-selling author, Taiye Selasi and illustrated by Annick Poirier.  It represents and inspired by curlies of all ages, because its never to late or early to start loving your curls!




You download [and share] a copy of the book to inspire the curly girls in your life. It's easy to create a personalized e-book with a custom dedication and illustration for a curly cutie in your life. Just Visit Dove.com/LoveYourCurls to download the free e-book.  You will love it for your self or make a curly girl feel special.  I wished this book was available when I was a kid.  It would have made a big difference on how I felt about my curls.
