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?
My experience with Mixed Chicks has been of a positive one. I found myself enjoying this product line for my curly hair routines, twist outs as well as braid outs. The slip these products provide is AMAZING! The moisturizing formula is SUPERB!
What makes them different than other hair/beauty products you’ve tried in the past
One of the differences I’ve found and come to love about Mixed Chicks is its versatility. These products are formulated to be used on ALL hair types. Another difference is in its packaging, this may sound small, but I love how the products (i.e. shampoo & conditioner) don’t allow you to OVER pour or OVER use product. It allows for just enough products to come through, which brings me to my next point, A little goes a long way!
Do you have a go-to or token Mixed Chicks product you cannot go without
My staple/must have product well, I have 2.lol! I cannot go without the leave-in conditioner and the morning after redefining foam.
How has having a product specifically for your biracial/ethnic/multicultural background impacted your beauty regime?
Having a product specifically for my multicultural hair has impacted me in such a way that, it allows me to enjoy my curls more. Having these products catered to my hair type empowers me back to the original train of thought I was intended to have of myself and that is…. love the skin I’m in & let my hair/curls speak the loudest on behalf of my pride!
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care?
One feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers my hair is its ability to unify ALL hair types causing UNITY and SELF ACCEPTANCE. Through UNITY & ACCEPTANCE comes CONFIDENCE! And with such a diverse formula that enhances my curls, I can ROCK super defined curls CONFIDENTLY!
If you could define Your Hair Story in one word, what would it be?
If I could define my curl story in 1 word, it would be the name I gave myself when I started my YouTube channel….”ITSKNOTSOEASY”. This name represents not only my life but also my hair story. IT’S KNOT SO EASY, but IT’S WORTH IT!
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation?
I believe that the curly revolution is vital for our generation, because it will override that which is being taught in history books, TV ads and Hollywood that depicts negative personas of the Afro Textured Hair! Our generation will come to accept and embrace who they are and the power they represent by watching and being a part of a movement that tells them ITS OKAY TO DO SO!!
If your Mixed Chick story were a song, what would it be?
If my Mixed Chick hair story was a song it would be I AM NOT MY HAIR by India Arie.
Do you have any go-to beauty/hair bloggers or vloggers who inspire or help your hairstyles?
The beauty vloggers that inspired my journey are (Kimmaytube & Hairlicious.inc) Being a beauty vlogger myself, you can find me on YouTube my channel name is: Itsknotsoeasy
