Welcome to our hub!

Here at our blog, we approach new topics with inquisitiveness, an open mind, and a customer-centric attitude. We aim to provide you with informative and engaging content that will not only help you in your curly hair journey but also educate and inspire you.

As someone with extensive experience in the beauty industry, my specialization revolves around writing content for brands and websites that emphasize curly hair care.

Additionally, I collaborate with a friend who holds a Ph.D. in organic and inorganic chemistry and works as an R&D Chemist. With his help, we navigate through the misinformation surrounding curly hair care by providing well-informed advice based on Hair Care Science.

“I was so excited to embrace my curls and take better care of them. As I started to dive in, I immediately became overwhelmed with the information.”

I read books and tried doing things because "that's what I'm supposed to do," but it didn't always work and I didn't understand why. I'm so grateful for Verna and her blog. Her info. actually helped me understand more of the science of why some methods helped and what products or ingredients to use and why. Anyone that compliments my hair and wants to start a curly journey, I tell them to start here. My hair is so much healthier and I'm so happy with it.
