Welcome to the Your Hair Story Series presented by Mixed Chicks. This dynamic, new innovative series allows Mixed Chicks users to share their personal stories behind their hair. Hair that kinks, coils, curls, waves, and tells a story reflecting their culture, race, ethnicity, and upbringing. Like our customers, hair comes in all shades, textures and shapes unique to each individual and here at Mixed Chicks we want to celebrate that to the utmost extent. Meet our exquisite Mixed Chicks women, men, and children who exhibit beauty from the root and give us honest, bold stories that we are honored to share with you.
What has your experience been with the Mixed Chicks products? Using Mixed Chicks has been a really great experience for me! I get even more compliments on my hair and my friends have noticed that my hair is much less frizzy…thank GOD!
What makes them different than other hair/beauty products you tried in the past? I love that I can use Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner as a “stand-alone” product. For years, I’ve been using multiple products at once to get the look I want and this is the first product I don’t have to do that with!
Do you have a Go-To or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go without? Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner is my absolute go-to product. Woot! Woot!
How has having a product specifically for your cultural/biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty regime? I take pride in knowing I can use a hair product created by women just like me, for me! They knew what was needed for our hair type and it is very inspirational.
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background? My curls & hair texture represents my ethnic background by showing the mix of “kinky curly” from my African American side and the “wavy” from my Iranian side! I love it because I have the best of both worlds!
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care? I love that the product is lightweight and not heavy on my hair.
If you could define Your Hair Story in one word what would it be? One word I would use to describe my hair story is “happy”.
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation? Celebrating natural/healthy hair types is vital for our generation because it encourages young women to embrace their natural, God-given beauty.
If your ‘Mixed Chick’ story were a song, what would it be? My song would be “Happy” by Pharell Williams.
Do you have any go-to beauty/hair bloggers or vloggers who inspire or help your hairstyles? I don’t have too many people I follow, but Model/InstaBlogger Miss Brit Watkins (@bwatuwant) is who I occasionally check out for hair inspiration. My social media handle is @merietab on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and my website is merietabayati.com.
