Winter Hits & Misses + New Hair Who Dis?

I haven’t been able to do a hits & misses video in the past few months, but wow, I’ve tried so many new things and some weird things too! In this video, I’ll let you know what I thought – I also have more things to show you all when I do my empties video (I will probably need to do them separately for categories).

AND – I’ve said goodbye to my blonde/pink hair and hello to a new color!


Fast forward to 17:11 for the part about hair dye and my new color!

Products mentioned are as follows:

  • Sacha Intense Matte Lip Velvet (Octoly)
  • Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick (Octoly)
  • Clairol Keratin Rescue Split End Repair (Influenster)
  • CandyLipz Lip Plumper (Octoly)
  • Artis Elite Smoke Brush Set (Octoly)
  • Bigen Semi-Permanent Hair Dye

While you’re here, make sure you’re subbed to the channel because I’ve been using the Community tab for more engagement with folks, including polls and questions of the day!


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
