A Surprisingly Amazing Combination

Seriously, who would think to combine Dove and Dark and Lovely products? curlBOX of course! So, this morning I decided to take these two new products I got from my February curlBOX for a test drive. The results were like POW!

The Dove Quench Absolute Supreme Creme Serum really served as a great moisturizer. I almost always work with dry stretched hair, and this product did a great job giving my hair some moisture before I started styling.

As for the Dark and Lovely Defining Gel and Moisture Butter, well, let me just pause so I can collect myself to say…A-MAZING! I absolutely love the texture of this stuff. It really is the perfect blend of Gel and Butter. I can definitely tell that this will be a great product for twist and braid out definition, or even rod sets! My hair is so silky with this product. Love love.

The style is a total of three flat twists meticulously placed to form this great shape. I’ll do a recap of this week’s styles but I can already tell you that this is my favorite look of the week.

Here are a few more pics.

Unboxing My First curlBOX

Hello beauties!

Some of you know that I received my very first curlBOX this past weekend. I was so excited about this product box subscription! I had been on the list for about a month and was thrilled when I was finally able to purchase it. Find out why in my Unboxing video below.

Big Beautiful Waves

Last night I had a bit of free time and decided to set my hair in 5 chunky flat twists using Dark & Lovely’s Au Naturale Super Softening Hair Butter. This is the first time I’ve tried a flat twist out and I absolutely love the results! I didn’t do much for styling, pretty much just unraveled the twists.

This style is great for fall when the humidity is low. We’re not quite there in Atlanta so I’ll be staying inside today :o)

Here are some pics:

New Product Fun

It’s been a while since I tried any new products so I decided to stop and picked up a few newbies.

As most of you know I am in love with almost all of the Cantu products I’ve tried, so when I spotted the new Coconut Curling Creme and Daily Oil Moisturizer I had to scoop those up.

I also spotted a new product from the Dark and Lovely Au Naturale line called Anti-breakage Super Softening Hair Butter. However, after researching it a bit further it’s actually more ideal for transitioning hair. So, I think I’ll pass it along to my sister who I’m super excited to say has decided to start her transition to the world of kinks and curls!

Stay tuned to see how these guys work out!
