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/Bi-racial/ a Minority) mean to you in 2017?
Being a minority, mixed, multiracial means to embrace your natural self and to also embrace all parts of you. It means to let go of what the world is used to and what it thinks is beautiful and to embrace the natural curly hair whether its course, fine, thick, or transitioning. To be a minority is to have pride and power in our different cultures and know that we are all beautiful!
Why is your go-to Mixed Chicks product essential for your hair regime?
The curl sculptor or the styling cream is essential for me because I love when my curls look and feel popping. Both the Styling Gel and the Styling Cream makes my hair defined and doesn’t have the crunchy feel to it which I love. They are so lightweight to me and that’s what I love!
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background?
My curls/hair texture represent my Puerto Rican background. I get a lot of people that ask me and are confused on what I am and its mostly because of my hair. But Latinos do have kinky and curly hair too! My curls are a visual to what the Puerto Rican background is, which is mixed and different.
