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 first started using mixed chicks back in 2012 when I became fully natural. I had heard a lot about the company and especially their leave-in conditioner. I immediately fell in love with their conditioner because it was both a leave-in and styler. Also, it was light-weight and gave my hair great definition. I’ve recently decided to start going back to using mixed chicks on a regular basis because I love how it leaves my hair feeling.
What makes them different than other hair/beauty products you tried in the past?
The difference between Mixed Chicks products and other hair products I’ve tried is that their products are super light and they don’t leave your hair feeling weighed down. Also, they show you that you don’t need a bunch of products to get great looking hair.
Do you have a Go-To or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go without?
I love the Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner. It is definitely one of my first loves.
How has having a product specifically for your biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty regime?
Having a product that is specifically for my ethnic background is awesome. I feel more comfortable using products by companies that understand my struggle as curly girl with multi-textured hair.
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background?
When I look at my curls I see the strength and beauty of my ancestors. My curls are a reminder to me that I am beautiful regardless of what society thinks.
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care?
The fact that Mixed Chicks uses its platform to unify people of different ethnic backgrounds through their love of curly hair is what empowers my hair care.
If you could define Your Hair Story in one word what would it be?
If I could define my hair story in one word it would be……Magical!!
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation?
The hair revolution of celebrating natural/healthy hair types is vital for our generation because it teaches them to love themselves and embrace their hair. The reason I became a Youtuber was to inspire my generation and to show them how beautiful natural hair is.
If your ‘Mixed Chick’ story were a song, what would it be?
If my Mixed Chick story was a song it would be “Roar” by Katy Perry.
