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 “Mixed, Multiracial or Bi-racial) mean to you in 2017?
Being biracial sisters (Italian and African American) in 2017 for us means being comfortable in your own skin and wearing your hair carefree as you please.
Do you have a go-to or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go without?
Our go-to Mixed Chicks product would be the Leave- In Conditioner!!!!!! Literally keeps our curls defined, but soft. Definitely a must have!
How has having a product specifically for your cultural/biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty regime?
Having a product specifically for ethnic hair in general has impacted all ladies & men’s regime, because it’s a product that makes you feel like it was made personally for you. Everyone knows when your hair looks good, you feel better all around! Mixed Chicks enhances your confidence inside and out!
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation?
Celebrating your hair in this generation is vital, because as sisters who’ve encountered countless criticism when growing up for wearing our hair natural, there was a time where we felt ashamed for wearing our hair as it naturally was, because of the things kids would say and the faces their parents would make for us not having bone straight hair. It’s truly beautiful to see more than ever women and girls feeling confident enough to shamelessly be themselves and wearing their hair free as doves!
