Mixed Chicks Presents: Your Hair Story Series- Christina

By Desiree Johnson

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 does being (“Mixed”/ Multiracial/Bi-racial/ a Minority) mean to you in 2017?

Being a minority in 2017 means that I must work twice as hard to be successful because I am considered an underdog.

Who inspires your beauty routine? How does it incorporate into your personal style?

My mother inspires my beauty regimen because she wears little to no makeup and she is simply beautiful to me inside and out. It incorporates into my personal style because I have learned that less is more, having the mindset of enhancing and embracing my beautiful flaws is far better in my opinion than covering up and hiding things I’m not happy about.

Why is your go-to Mixed Chicks product essential for your hair regime?

My go-to Mixed Chick product is essential to my hair regimen because it hydrates and tames my curls into a beautiful style that not only frames my face but gives me confidence to feel my most comfortable without worrying about frizzing or bad hair days. 

How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background?

My curls represent my ethnic background and me because I am wild, but modest and contained all at the same time.

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 health and beauty care is the moisture and control aspect of the brand. It leaves my hair feeling healthy light weight and it boosts my confidence when I know my hair is on “fleek” and looking healthy.
