Target’s Beauty Box for September came filled this month with tons of natural hair goodies that I was absolutely stoked about. Out of all the hair products that came in the box, the Dove Quench Absolute Crème Serum really stood out to me. I didn’t know Dove even had hair products catering to natural hair. The packaging was really sleek and it has a pump to dispense the product. The first thing I usually do when trying a new product is to see how it smells. This product has a perfume-like smell, which I’m not crazy about, but by the time it dries it goes away and you’re desensitized by it. The product aims to counter 5 key problems of textured hair: (1) Quenches hair dryness (2) Strengthens the hair shaft (3) Improves hair manageability (4) Smoothes the hair fiber surface (5) Seals hair cuticles to lock in nutrients

How to Achieve a Twist-Out Using Dove’s Quench Absolute: (Step by Step)

Step 1: Start off with freshly washed hair, especially being that this is the first time I am testing this product out, you want to see how your hair fully reacts to the product.

Step 2: Part you hair into sections in preparation to twist your hair. I will be sectioning my hair into big sections because I like my twists chunky, but you can definitely part into smaller sections if preferred.

Step 3: Rake the serum in each section and comb through thoroughly.

Step 4: Twist your hair in a crossover motion until you get to your ends. Tip: Finger-coil your ends for extra definition.

In total, I have about 9 twists all over.

Step 5: Use a diffuser on a low heat or cool setting for faster drying.

Step 6: Unravel each twist.

Step 7: Use an Afropick to lift the root and create volume!

Tip: If you want a more defined look only pick at the root, if you want lots of volume, pick all the way.

One thing I can’t go without in my daily beauty routine is leaving my house without mascara. I’ve always loved dramatic eyes, and I love how lashes accentuate eyes. So when I ran out of my current mascara, I was on the hunt for a new one to try.

As I was on my way to my local drugstore, I stumbled across the Wet n Wild section and instantly noticed the packaging on the new Wet n Wild Max Volume Plus mascara. Not only did the hot pink tube and white lettering easily grab my attention, but it also retails for only $5.99! That’s a steal.
Also after reading that it contains macadamia nut, jojoba and olive oils to condition and enrich my lashes, I was sold.

The mascara has a lightweight consistency that does not clump or flake once dried. I also love that you can reapply as many coats as you like and your lashes will not look cakey. The wand is also very nice with rubber bristles that easily glide on.

It gave me super long lashes, leaving them nicely separated and defined.
What better way to pump up the volume and add some flair to your look than with a dramatic fall look?
One of my favorite fall trends is wearing a dark lip and a bandolero hat to complement the look.

Overall, if you are looking for a good, volumizing mascara that will keep your lashes separated for a good price, definitely give this one a try.

Wet n Wild Max Volume Plus Mascara retails for $4.99 and can be found at Target and other retail stores.
