You know that song or saying “if at first you don’t succeed, pick yourself up and try again”? Well, let’s just say, if at first it doesn’t work, pick it up and try it again. When I first got my Target Beauty Box, I was pretty excited to see full sized products in the line up plus see some new things I haven’t tried before. In particular, I really loved the packaging right away of the Dove Advanced Hair Series Quench Absolute Creme Serum.

When I first tried it, I wasn’t really feeling it. Somehow my hair just felt odd. I tried it on a small section at first, and really I wasn’t impressed so I just said meh, won’t use it again. Well, I pulled it back out and decided to give it another few goes, and I am happy to say I was wrong. Turns out my hair quite enjoys it.

Hair Stats & Product Use

I have what’s called a TWA (teeny-weeny afro) and my hair is a lair for moisture, it will leech moisture and suck it all up every chance it gets (catch my drift?). The instructions on the label said that this product could be used on damp or dry hair, so I figured, since I recently washed my hair, and I did wear a hair scarf the other day, I’d replenish some moisture into the strands. A few pumps of the creme serum, massaged it into my tresses and voila! My hair’s feeling lovely and revitalized. Awesome!, especially considering I totally wrote this off after our first encounter.

Get it or Skip It?

In short, I think I’ll be giving this good use, especially for the days when my hair just needs a quick pick-me-up. The serum isn’t oily, in-fact, it’s like a greaseless-slick feel that it leaves on your fingers. It also adds some shine to dull hair. Overall, yep, I’m recommending getting this and giving it a try. You just might like it.

So tell me, have you tried this Dove Quench Creme Serum?

    • LOL!! Target has a way of just sucking you in. Give it a go Kita! I think you’ll really like the serum, I was really surprised I like it. Heck, even hubby likes it. #win haha

  3. Target is my BFF! I love that they have a beauty box now. I’ve heard great things about the Dove hair products. I’m a new natural and my hair is screaming for moisture and shine.

    • Target is all that and some indeed. I’m happy they decided to provide a really cost effective beauty box that over delivers! Dove is also really stepping up their game and diversifying to include more curls, so that’s awesome. And yay!! New natural.
