Mixed chicks Hair care




So Mixed Chicks a new Hair product to my knowledge and in the never ending cycle to find a product to control my out there, frizz bomb hair. The ethos and starting of the company are :

For years, multi-cultural people with hard to manage hair traveled from store to store, trying to blend products in a hopeless attempt to tame their locks. Wendi LEVY (left) and Kim ETHEREDGE (right), two "mixed chicks", created a product line because they needed it. Then, something happened...friends and family started encouraging them to package it, and soon they had a full blown business running out of the garage. After a little door to door hustling, a few celebrity endorsements, and a ton of online customer support, MIXED CHICKS is bringing their products to the world.


So Mixed Chicks is a range of haircare that is suitable for all hair types but aimed towards the thicker and more unmanageable sort of hair. However everyone can use this as i know plenty of girls with thin hair who have a nightmare with controlling the tangles.


So these little Trial packs come with a Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave in Treatment. 

Theses little sachets are really packed full of product and i managed to get 2 uses out of the sachets, The shampoo is really effective at getting stubborn products out and i find my hair needs 2 shampoos as i pack it with mousse and hair spray, serums and oils. So my hair is pretty weighted down with it all by the end of the day and i can feel it. It seems excessive but my hair is quite long and also i have to do this or else the bottoms, underneath and sides end up frizzy and then im a flashback from the yester-year of when flower power and frizz was all the rage. 
This shampoo really did remove all the product without stripping my hair down or it feeling like i needed to double wash. Once was enough with this shampoo which i was thankful for as well i like to relax and having to wash your hair and rinse it over and over, its not relaxing so this saved me a huge amount of time.
Same with the conditioner, I found it a lovely product and really did moisturise my hair as instead of frizz its now really soft, i still need products but not as much as i did before as my hair is now lighter from being cleaner. However my hairs bounced right up. I don't know if the conditioners had something to do with this or if its the fact the shampoo has cleaned my hair so good that its had this effect but its probably allowed for the conditioning product to penetrate the hair better.
So that will take a few more uses to see if the hair improves or if its just down to the shampoo cleaning so well. So i think i leave my judgement open to more uses and see if the conditioner is improving the quality of my hair.

The only part i didn't like was the leave in conditioner. It was really heavy and i found it sticky to apply even to damp hair. Maybe this is for more thicker coarser hair then mine as it sticks fast to your hair. Plus leaves a sort of crunch, that i get with an extra hold mousse so my hair wasn't frizzy but i didn't like the feeling the Leave in product left so i wasn't so keen on using it again.
I did however add this to my normal spritz bottle to add some conditioning agent to my spritz when i use it to style the next day or comb my hair out in the morning. That way it didn't leave that feeling and i didn't waste a perfectly good product.  As it still contains active ingredients , so if you find you have a product thats leave in and too heavy then a spritz bottle from a garden centre or pound shop is a really good investment. It lets you water down these heavier types of conditioner without leaving a residue. 

What are your holy Grail Hair products ? Any hair tips ?

  6. I have a lot of fine, long curly hair that frizzes out.

    When I really want nice curls, I use Beautiful Curls (curl activating shea butter for curly or kinky hair) It's handmade and smells sooooo good. My Mom's hairdresser suggested it for me - its sold at health food stores. I bouoght the shampoo and leave-in conditioner.

    The Beautiful Curls line (to me) is expensive so I retouch throughout the week with Garnier Fructis Curl Sculpting Cream Gel (extra strong).

    I'm stopping by from Create with Joy's Friendship Friday Linky. Have a great weekend!
