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 or Bi-racial) mean to you in 2017?
For me it means knowing a lot about at least 2 different culture.
Do you have a Go-To or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go without?
How has having a product specifically for your cultural/biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty regime?
I feel good and happy, because I had to struggle to get my hair texture as I want. My mom didn’t know how to take care of it. My mom is Caucasian and so is her hair.
Do you use any other Mixed Chicks products as part of your beauty routine?
I honestly didn’t know about the Brand before.
What new 2017 Mixed Chicks product are you interested in trying out?
The Detangling DEEP Conditioner seems to be interesting. A nice way to hydrated your hair and take the knots away without a problem.
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation?
Growing up I always felt divided about which origin I am. If I’m with or black… If we all celebrate who we are , well there will be no need to choose anymore. You are who you want to be.
Is there a (Mixed/Multiracial/Bi-racial) celebrity who empowers you?
Alicia Keys is the Person I am looking up to, when it comes to accept your roots.
Do you have any go-to beauty/hair bloggers or vloggers who inspire or help your hairstyles?
