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 been your experience with the Mixed Chicks products?
I absolutely love love Mixed Chicks hair products. I found myself searching for the perfect hair products for awhile, simply because everyone wants to have healthy beautiful hair. Mixed chicks products have defined my curls even more, and has made my hair soft and shiny; leaving my hair with a bouncier and full fierce look.
What makes them different than other hair/beauty products you tried in the past?
Mixed chicks products are different than other hair/beauty products because they cater to a specific audience. I’ve tried to use regular shampoos and conditioners and I find that they strip my hair leaving it dry and hard to style. On the other hand, Mixed Chicks products offer sweet ingredients which has become reflective in both the health and overall look of my hair.
Do you have a Go-To or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go without?
The leave-in conditioner is my favorite!! It smells amazing and my curls always look amazing after I use it.
How has having a product specifically for your biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty regime?
It’s amazing because it’s nice to have a product that “understands you”. It makes such a difference to use a product that fits your needs as appose to using a regular product hoping it’ll work. My hair looks so great thanks to Mixed Chicks products. I confidently love to rock my mixed curls!!
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background?
Being black and white, I find my hair is literally both worlds. I have long curly hair that isn’t unbearable to maintain, but it is pretty sensitive and can be hard to manage if not taken care of properly.
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care?
The appreciation they have for natural beauty, everyone loves to look good and feel good.
If you could define Your Hair Story in one word what would it be?
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation?
It’s vital because it’s important to teach our generation and future generations to love the skin they’re in. So many times we focus on what we don’t like about ourselves instead of owning it and loving it. By offering natural/healthy products we can get more people to love what they have instead of changing what they have!
If your ‘Mixed Chick’ story were a song, what would it be?
Do you have any go-to beauty/hair bloggers or vloggers who inspire or help your hairstyles?
Not really, I usually just try things spontaneously and experiment with what I like and don’t like.
