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.
I feel like the conversationn around being multi-racial has shifted more positively because there is a lot more visibility and products like Mixed Chicks that is made for us, however I still feel there is this “exoticism” aspect towards multi-racial people that personally makes me feel more objectified because I am multi-racial and female.
What is your go-to Mixed Chicks product essential for your hair regime?
The Daily Hair Dress, Curl Sculptor, and Morning After Redefining Foam.
How is your cultural/ethnic background reflected in your hair?
My hair holds a lot of my culture and ethnic background from the thickness of my hair to its curl pattern, and unique curly texture. My hair holds a lot of my identity, and it is why Mixed Chicks products are such a necessary part of my natural curl routine.
Our new campaign is focused on #itsminetodefine, What does this mean to you?
This means to me that my hair is mine to define, to wear, to style, and to identify with. All I have to do is use my favorite mixed chicks products to get the desired style i want, that defines the uniqueness of my multi-racial identity expressed through the texture of my hair.
What’s your favorite protective style?
A sloppy bun
