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.
My name is Heather Lynn Arroyo and my hair is the definition and essence of who I define myself as.“I love my hair becausen it is a reflection of my soul, it dense, it’s kinky, it’s soft, its textured , it’s difficult, easy and it is fun. That is why I love my hair!”
Is there any (Mixed/Multiracial/Biracial) celebrity who empowers you?
Tracie Ellis Ross!
How do your curls represent your cultural/ethnic background?
I am a proud Boriqua, my hair is a representation of a deep rooted history, coming from Spain, Africa, and Taino Indian blood!
How has having a product specifically for your cultural/biracial/ethnic/multiracual background impacted your beauty regime?
There was a point in time where I allowed people to define what they thought represented beauty and I abused my curls with heat ! They were fried and so was a huge part of ME! I decided to go on my curl journey and products like Mixed Chicks have helped bring my BEAUTIFUL unique curls back to life!
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your beauty/haircare?
Mixed Chicks are not only curl revivers , but advocate for my fellow curly girl sisters from all backgrounds!
