Hello! Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet. My name is Thaïs and I am a marketing professional, blogger, freelance writer, and curly hair enthusiast.

Curl on a Mission is my way of documenting and sharing my experiences with bringing out the best in my naturally curly hair. Mind you, I do straighten, cut and color (I have a bit of hair ADD), but I always come back to my curls. I’m currently growing out my hair from a pixie.

I also love to travel, read books and other blogs, and cook primarily vegan meals for my family. My hometown is New Orleans, LA, but I’ve also lived in Atlanta, GA and Paris, France.

My mission is to have a sound mind, healthy body, happy soul, and great hair.

Welcome to Curl on a Mission.

  1. Curls seriously rock. So happy that you have consistently accepted yours! I am jealous of your length – mine spring up faster than I can grow them out. How long did it take you to get it this long?

    1. Hi Jess! Curls DO rock! About 3 years ago I cut my hair into a really short pixie and almost immediately I let it grow out again. I loved my short hair but it grows so fast that it was difficult (and time-consuming) for me to maintain it. I’ve had a ton of fun with my curls at every length, especially when they were just above my shoulders and they were HUGE!

  2. I’m excited about your curl mission :)! I have learned so much about the beauty of curls since caring for Keir’s hair.

  3. Hello, I have a question about my hair. I was wondering if maybe you could help me out? I have 3b type curly hair and it falls right below my breasts. My hair is really thick so whenever I style it I usually pull half of my hair back into a clip. I love my hair I just wish it wasn’t so thick. I wanted to know if long layers would help thin it out?

    1. Hi Taya – your hair sounds beautiful! I can only speak from personal experience, but my hair has always felt lighter when I have it cut into lots of layers of various lengths. For example, the shortest later may start somewhere between my chin and my shoulder. It takes some of the weight out and gives it a rounder shape. I also find it easier to detangle in the shower.

      1. I have one more question. I finally made an appointment to get my hair layered at an Ouidad hair salon. I was wondering when you get your hair layered, does your stylist cut your hair while its wet or dry?

      2. I typically get my hair cut when it’s dry and straightened. This works best for me personally when my hair is super long. Ouidad has their own system for cutting hair so I’d double check with the stylist to see how s/he prefers your hair to be.

  4. Thank you for getting back to me! I’m going to try out some layers and hopefully it gets rid of some of the thickness. Thanks again!! And your hair is very gorgeous I love your curls!
