MixedChicks

*Disclaimer - I received the items mentioned below, free of charge, for review purposes.  In no way did this alter my review.  All of my opinions expressed in this post are one-hundred percent honest and true.*

Something I don't talk about enough on my blog is the fact that we are a multi-racial family. I am Caucasian, while my husband is half  Hispanic and half African American, making our kids White, Mexican, and African American. We have four children together and all four children have very different hair types, ranging from straight to wavy to loose curls to ringlets. It's funny how genes sometimes work!  I honestly love the fact that all of my kids looks are so unique! And I also love the fact that Mixed Chicks products are so unique because they work on any and all hair types including weaves! 


I never imagined how hard it would be to find products that would work effectively on my children's hair.  Products for straight hair were not feasible, while products for African American's hair wasn't working either. For many years now, I have struggled to find something that would work in their hair, and I recently found the perfect products thanks to MixedChicks!  

Mixed Chicks offers a selection of curl defining hair products for races of all kinds, and hair combinations of all types.  No matter if you are Caucasian or African American, Mixed, or Asian.  No matter if your hair is curly, wavy, or straight, Mixed Chicks has you covered!  Which is great because typically I cannot use the same hair products as the rest of my family, but lucky for me Mixed Chicks can be used by any and everyone.

I reached out to Mixed Chicks because I was very interested in trying their products.  They were very friendly and agreed to let me review some of their items.  Now, they weren't specific as to what they would send me, so when I opened up the box to find a lovely assortment of their products, I was quite surprised, not to mention super excited to try them out on my entire family, including myself.  
We received a Mixed Chicks Quad Kit which included four items:

  • Mixed Chicks Kids Shampoo
  • Mixed Chicks Kids Conditioner
  • Mixed Chicks Kids Leave In Conditioner
  • Mixed Chicks Kids Tangle Tamer
Mixed Chicks also provided us with a Quad Pack Kit containing:
  • Mixed Chicks Shampoo
  • Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner
  • Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner
  • Mixed Chicks Hair Silk
Our oldest son has straight hair, so we keep it short and it is very easy to manage. Our four and five year old both have long hair, so their hair is much harder to maintain.  There's our four year old son who has wavy hair and our five year old son who has ringlets. Then you have our daughter who has soft curls. Together, the Mixed Chicks products worked together to help moisturize, control frizz, and define curls on all of my children's hair.  


We found that the Mixed Chicks Hair Silk worked well on all of our hair, including my husbands who keeps his hair extremely short.  It gave him a nice looking gloss, while it tamed my daughters and my two youngest sons frizzy hair, and even made my straight hair much smoother. Before this photo was taken my daughters hair was one big frizzy ball. As you can see, the Hair Silk improved my daughters hair by reducing fly away hairs, giving it an overall beautiful gloss look, and helping prevent splits, to provide her with healthier looking hair. We used the Mixed Chicks Shampoo and Conditioner, before applying the Hair Silk to it. The results were amazing, as seen in this picture.

OH my I have a mixed daughter and she could use this. I have searched and searched for a product for her hair but nothing really works like it says. I will have to get her some of this.

This is an interesting product, and addresses an issue I had not considered! My husband and I hope to adopt, so I might keep this product in the back of my mind. Thanks for sharing! : )

I have naturally curly hair and I straighten it with keratin. These are great products, but I suffered through so many years before there were products like this out that I just can't embrace the curls.

Your family is beautiful and now they can have beautiful hair all the time too. Awesome package.

I've always thought that multi-racial children were so beautiful! But I can see how their hair could be a problem LOL Looks like a great solution here!

I've heard of mixed chicks but haven't had a chance to give them a try. The results look amazing! I think I'll definitely go hunting for these products soon. Thanks for the review! :)

Chelsea Olivia said...

It's great that you got to try the kids line and the adults line! The products sound great :)

I like that a company came out with a product that can be used on all types of hair. Truth be known there are tomes when my hair is frizzy times when it is pin straight etc etc. Will be checking out this brand some more.

Kendall Rayburn said...

Wow - looks like these products worked great! I'll have to check them out for my littles!

How fun to send a surprise box to you like that... I love working with products I already know and love. It's very easy to want to tell others about it in a blog post when you're already familiar with the product(s) you've received.

I have used their products and LOVE them! They really are great hair care products. I've never tried the silk though so would love to give that one a shot.
