Five Tips For Being A Smart Consumer

Soooo, I’ve been blogging for what, nine years? In that time, I’ve talked about and purchased from and reviewed hundreds of brands. In that same sense, I’ve also heard hundreds of complaints from pissed off people when they didn’t have the experience that they wanted with a brand. Most are warranted, but some I would think could have been prevented (and I am including myself in this) or it could have been approached differently. I want to be clear though – this is NO SHADE to any consumer or person, I myself am a consumer and have learned from my own missteps over the years, but I figured some tips would be helpful (I also added an “educated consumer” note to my BoB listing and my holy grail list).

Quest for the Perfect Curl Is No More!

No, I’m not going away forever 🙂 It’s just that well, Quest for the Perfect Curl doesn’t really fit the site anymore. When I first started this blog, I was 100% all in with learning about my new natural hair and trying products. While product testing and hair care will never (ever) go away, I’ve been branching out to cover more things beauty and wellness related, like makeup, yoga, and keto. My life is so enriched with spirituality and coming into my own being that at this point, hair isn’t enough!

And so, “Ellevate” was born (thank you two hour Honolulu layover). Obviously, it’s a play on my name (pun intended, haha) and to me it speaks more to learning about or sharing things in whatever categories the people want. In the coming weeks, I’ll be making slight tweaks to the site and updating some graphics – no, none of the articles or videos will be deleted! I definitely still love hair, and I know I owe you all a Qhemet review (among other things).

So please, if there is anything that you’d like to see on the new site, definitely let me know! Thank you all for rocking with me for so long and I’m excited to shift to this new chapter with writing and sharing content. xoxo
