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.
While I think the conversation around mixed hair has become extremely positive, I still find it difficult to find advice from girls with “ethnically Jewish” hair. I’d love to add that voice!
How did you find out about Mixed Chicks?
I had seen Mixed Chicks in the store but didn’t realize it would be great for my hair, too, until it was included in my Curly Lox Box!
What is your go-to Mixed Chicks product essential for your hair regime?
I cannot get over the effectiveness of my Morning After Redefining Foam. I’ve already replenished my supply once!
How is your cultural/ethnic background reflected in your hair? (ex: texture, length, curl pattern, etc.)
The texture and curl pattern of my hair is definitely “Jewish” (Eastern European). I’m a member of the Orthodox Jewish community and used to only have hair as long as my hat or scarf could cover. But as the women in our social circle and community are currently covering a little bit less hair than they used to, I’ve allowed my hair to grow past my shoulders and am loving it!
Our new campaign is focused on #itsminetodefine, What does this mean to you?
#itsminetodefine means I can wear my hair as long as I want, despite my age and can continue to color my hair as long as I find my grays distracting. 🙂
What’s your favorite protective style?
At night I plop into a silk scarf when i want to protect my curls…and I always sleep on a satin pillow case!
Which platform is your go-to outlet for hair advice? (blogs, website, YouTube, Instagram)
I use instagram to follow influencers like @curlybailey, @brunettewithbounce, and @jannelleoshaughenssy
