Straight to Curly Hair with Dove Quench Absolute Collection Monday 18 April, 2016


 As you all have noticed on social media lately I recently straightened and cut my hair. If you haven’t check out the YouTube video below. I got so many mixed reviews, some people loved it and some people were in shocked because they know me as Kiwi The Curly (I guess). My hair is my staple, my signature with the curls, but sometimes change is good. Season changed from winter to spring – so why can’t I change my hair from curly to straight? I did cute it into a bob and I decided I wanted to see how my hair looked straight.

It’s been 2 1/2 years. I liked it. As much as I liked it…the curls was calling my name…so I did a Straight to Curly Transformation using the Dove hair care line for the first time.

The Results!




As you can see my hair curled up really nicely! I didn’t have an issue with my curl pattern seeing that I didn’t use heat prior to straighten my hair in 2 1/2 years. Less heat on hair prevents future hair damage so it will be easier to convert hair back and forth from straight to curly. The Dove Products I was happily surprised that it defined my curls and kept it soft and bouncy. Using these products returned my curls to its natural state and it felt nice and rejuvenated and moisturized!

We all know Dove for their bath and body products, but I think its genius of them to expand their beauty line to hair. They have been doing an awesome job campaigning for us curly girls as well with their #LoveYourCurls social initiatives! I love my curls even more now that I know I can revert it from straight to curly at any time! That’s the fun about being curly…you can always switch it up and great products will make it effortless such as Dove

I was pleasantly surprised with the Dove hair care collection! Beyond just bath and body, I loved it expands to hair care – especially to curly course hair like mine. It definitely works well and it smells shower fresh too so this is still a staple bathroom product brand. CVS_YSYW_Asset1[2]
