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? I have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with all of the Mixed Chicks products that I’ve used. They were the first natural hair care products that I put on my hair, and I have been using them ever since.
What makes them different than other hair/beauty products you tried in the past? What makes them different is the way that the product brands itself. The bottle alone, pulled me in with its true and inspiring message with, “finally a curl defining formula designed for US…”
Do you have a Go-To or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go without? Most definitely the leave-in conditioner; I can use just this on my hair for wash n’ gos and be set for the day!
How has having a product specifically for your cultural/biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty regime? It has opened my eyes to the beauty of having such unique hair. Realizing that there are products, like Mixed Chicks, designed just for me and other multiracial individuals has helped me appreciate who I am and take better care of my hair and my overall self.
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background? My texture is the perfect combination of my Caucasian mother’s big lose, curls and my African American father’s tight thick curls. You can look at them and tell I’m of a multicultural background.
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care? The message that Mixed Chicks stands behind! As said before, Mixed Chicks brand is awesome, in that it makes people, whether black, white, Asian, Latin, Mediterranean, or any “glorious” combination, feel beautiful and feel special to have the hair that they have on their head.
If you could define Your Hair Story in one word what would it be? Unpredictable. I truly never know what I’m going to get until I start my day and look in the mirror. Sometimes my curls dry flatter than other days, sometimes they are extra full… I just never know ☺
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation? Celebrating natural hair is essential because everybody needs to feel beautiful, regardless of their hair shape, size, and/or texture. Too many women have felt that it is not acceptable for them to wear their hair in its natural state, or they feel that they need to wear a weave to give themselves the length that they see on others; However, every woman is.
If your ‘Mixed Chick’ story were a song, what would it be? “Sure Thing by Miguel” because the relationship described in the song describes the love that I have finally learned to have for my hair.
Do you have any go-to beauty/hair bloggers or vloggers who inspire or help your hairstyles? I am a few days away from publishing my blog: www.kaittouchthis.com. The blog is a natural hair and lifestyle blog to help empower and influence other women to wear their natural hair, as well as to share fashion, hair, and beauty tips. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, and I’ve decided it’s time to put my thoughts into action and go for it! I have SO MANY go-to hair bloggers, but three of my faves are @frogirlginny, @curly.edgy & @heygorjess!
