Mixed Chicks???

Ow the complicated hair story that is all mine! I have an interesting texture of hair. It's naturally wavy/curly and that is how I wear it majority of the time. Especially in the summer because I swim a lot. When I want a change or have special plans I normally get it straighted via flat iron by my stylist. Everyone just assumes I have a relaxer because all black women have relaxers, right? Ummm Wronggg!

I have pretty long hair by any standards but definitely by AA standards. It's down my back---well past my bra line and thick. With the length alone it absorbs a lot of product so you can only imagine what the thickness does to it! Ow! Sometimes it will curl perfectly fine in lovely ringlets and others it will be half curly and half wavy! %#@&#@!$!!! So I'm just trying to find a common ground here ladies! Blah~

I'm both blessed and cursed with hair versatility but sometimes finding the right product for my hair can be a BEAT DOWN! I've always used tons of different products because my hair tends to get use to a product quickly and then choose not to respond! SMH

How I ended up with moody hair I have no clue! I'd been talking with a friend of mine who recently decided to go "natural" and she was hipping me to all these different products. Carol's Daughter and Miss Jessie's were two that I recall so I read up on them and looked at the reviews, etc. Both had pretty mixed reviews. Miss Jessie's is pretty pricey and Carol's Daughter just seemed so so. In doing my research I found a product called "Mixed Chicks". I went on the site and they seem to have a pretty good product with good ingredients so I bought it. It was reasonably priced, about $50 for the entire line (shampoo, conditioner, styling serum and de-frizzer). I'm anticipating the delivery and I really hope it works.

Here is the site for anyone that is interested and I will let you all know if it works for me or not. Wish me luck!



  1. I will be waiting for this review as I too have the half wavy/curly/straight thick frizzy hair. Hope it works!

  2. Lol@ Casey! We have quite the combination don't we! Ha!

  3. I've been wanting to try that on Aaliyah since she was born but can't see spending that much when she hardly had hair and now, I just haven't gotten around to it lol

    I have however just recently changed to sulfate free shampoo for both of us. It was a big change since this stuff doesn't foam up! But I can tell you from the way MY hair feels, this is definitely the way to go!!

    Let me know how you like it. My cousin who is also mixed is buying it for herself too so I might just break down and buy it soon lol
