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 has your experience been with the Mixed Chicks products? My mom begun to use Mixed Chicks products for about a year now. She first begun using the leave-in-conditioner and recently added the deep conditioning as part of my hair care.
What makes them different than other hair/beauty products you tried in the past? My mom said this product has made my hair look and feel healthy. We see how my curls shine and are never dull. My hair is more manageable because of Mixed Chicks products.
Do you have a Go-To or token Mixed Chick Product you cannot go without? I cannot go without the leave-in-conditioner.
How has having a product specifically for your cultural/biracial/ethnic/multiracial background impacted your beauty regime? I have really long and curly hair I don’t think it has impacted me in any way except that it makes my hair feel great. I am always on the go and in auditions and everyone always asks my mom how does she deal with my hair. She always says that she uses Mixed Chicks to manage my hair.
How do your curls/hair texture represent your cultural/ethnic background? I am Guatemalan and Black, which make me mixed. My hair is who I am. It showcases my positive, wild, fierce and full of life attitude towards everything. I love to dance, do gymnastics, model and everything in between. I am special because of what I believe in. I believe everyone has the power to change our world. I believe young kids can live a healthy life style. So, I ensure that not only my body is healthy but my hair well.
What is one feature of the Mixed Chicks brand that empowers your hair/beauty care? The Mixed Chicks products works for us mixed kids. Our hair can be hard to manage and Mixed Chicks takes away that headache from my mom. Before using these products my hair will always stay on a ponytail, which I didn’t like much. Now that my mom is able to manage my hair better and my hair is healthy, I can keep my hair out all day and sometimes several days. In my workout videos I also ensure my followers and encourage them to be healthy.
If you could define Your Hair Story in one word what would it be? Unstoppable.
Why is the hair revolution celebrating natural/healthy hair types vital for our generation? In our generation we tend to worry about what other think of us. I think we need to show that we are comfortable with ourselves and that natural is as beautiful as the sunrise and sunset.
