Mixed Chicks Presents: Your Hair Story Series- Irie Love

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.

Irie

What does being (“Mixed, Multiracial or Bi-racial) mean to you in 2017?
BEING ‘MIXED’ IS BECOMING IT’S OWN RACE. IM GRATEFUL TO BE ALIVE IN A TIME WHERE THE LINES OF RACE ARE BEING BLENDED MAKING THE LINES OF RACISM MORE DIFFICULT TO DEFINE. #ENDRACISMNOW

Do you have a Go-To or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go

without?

MY ‘MIXED CHICKS’ LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER IS ALWAYS A MUST HAVE. DEFINED CURLS ARE A TRICKY THING TO accomplish. THE LEAVE-IN MAKES IT SO EASY!
How has having a product specifically for your
cultural/biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty
regime?
I GET ASKED ALL THE TIME WHAT I USE ON MY HAIR. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE WITH CURLS THAT CANT BE DEFINED BY ONE TEXTURE. MIXED CHICKS WORKS ON ALMOST EVERY TYPE OF ‘CURLY HAIR’. IM SO GRATEFUL FOR THE ‘MIXED CHICKS’ PRODUCTS AND I PROMOTE THEM ALL THE TIME.
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background?
WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I USED TO HATE MY CURLS. I JUST WANTED STRAIGHT HAIR LIKE MOST OF MY FRIENDS. IM SO GRATEFUL NOW AND ROCK MY CURLS WITH SO MUCH PRIDE. FITTING IN IS SUCH A TRICK. STANDING OUT IS WHAT MAKES YOU SHINE!
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your
hair/beauty care?
THE FACT THAT THERE IS A LINE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR CURLS MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I AM ON THE LEADING EDGE OF A NEW GENERATION.
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for
our generation?
BEING PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE, WHATEVER OR WHOEVER THAT MAY BE. THAT IS WHAT THE HAIR REVOLUTION IS REALLY ABOUT FOR ME. NO JUDGEMENT. NO BOXES TO FIT INTO. JUST BE YOU!
