Mission: With my blog, my ultimate goal is to encourage and empower women to conduct research and become more autonomous with their hair care routine. I am a huge critical thinker and believe that if you understand the process, you can achieve your goals. Sharing information as a stepping stone is key, but as you know, we all have different unique properties to our hair, as well as differing concerns and issues. My hope is that you will leave my blog with new knowledge and a thirst for more.
About: So what’s with this whole “quest” thing? This is my own personal quest to my natural texture. A relaxed girl’s quest to curls and/or kinks, as I like to call it. Because, who knows how the heck it’s going to come out? I am OBSESSED with researching new products, so I am definitely a product junkie (although I’m really trying to decrease my stash)! On the blog, I’ll tell you what worked for me, what didn’t, and what was just a fail. I already have a list of products I’m dying to try out and need to order, and not all of them seem to be popular. Also, there will be as many hairstyles as I can find and actually do, and of course, I’m going to have to throw a few gripes in there every now and then.
Eventually, I hope to have a full head of huge, healthy hair. Like, the kind of hair that blocks people out of photos. I’ll let you know how it goes. **GOAL ACHIEVED**
