Haircare model Mixed Chicks (available right here) has been on my radar since 2012. Back then I was interning for magazine Black Magnificence & Hair and that i had the pleasure of meeting the curly-haired founders, Wendi Levy and Kim Etheredge. I really resonated with their experience of utilizing the obtainable hair products available on the market, which have been made for both very dry hair or oily hair with little in between. Wendi and Kim defined that their model was for those who did not slot in to those classes and though my hair was relaxed straight I hoped that the merchandise would nonetheless work for me. In brief, I tried a number of of the merchandise with little success. Coming back to them 3 years later I needed to have an open thoughts as my hair has changed so much since then.
Gentle Clarifying Shampoo (£11.90/300ml)*
I actually like this shampoo which gives loads of slip and makes my hair really silky. It would not really lather however it nonetheless cleanses and removes build-up effectively. I've tried this with and with out making use of a pre shampoo remedy first and it did make my strands a bit dry with the latter. Though I am going to proceed to use it when it runs out I don't assume I would purchase it as I've a number of shampoos I like already.
Depart-In Conditioner (£15.90/300ml)*
I've been utilizing this depart-in often as it gives gorgeous definition. You've to use it when the hair is wet or it could leave your strands sticky so I rely on this when my hair has simply been freshly washed or dampened first. I apply it fairly generously but if you employ a lot it could make the hair feel a bit crunchy. I usually simply add a little of my moisturiser when my hair is totally dry to make it delicate once more with out disturbing the definition. I like the scent and my hair does not get frizzy when using this. Although this leave-in is pricey it is definitely a product I will pick up when it runs out.
Detangling Deep Conditioner (£10.90/236ml)*
I actually needed to love this product as deep conditioners are my absolute favorite products to make use of. It's very thick, buttery and smells beautiful but I discover this missing one thing. It isn't formulated with particularly particular substances which is slightly disappointing contemplating the excessive value. The directions state to 'apply and rinse' too which I found a little complicated as deep conditioners usually have to be left on from anyplace from 5-half-hour. I have been mostly leaving it on my hair with a steamer for roughly 10-quarter-hour and it is allowed me to detangle my strands very easily. With out utilizing my steamer however this deep conditioner doesn't give my thirsty hair the moisture it wants. It's best suited to hair that does not get very dry.
Morning After Redefining Foam (£11.90/236ml)*
I really like the thought of this product, which is purported to refresh curls with out the necessity for re-wetting the hair, however I am not completely sold on the precise product itself. Ive used it several times in an try and carry again curl definition (usually misplaced whilst sleeping) and it does work however I have to apply loads to really make any impression, which only leaves my hair wet and slightly sticky.
Total it's clear Combined Chicks merchandise work much better for my hair now being pure/texlaxed than it did when my hair was fully relaxed. I like the packaging and fragrance of the merchandise however I'm not solely convinced there's sufficient respectable components inside to warrant the excessive price tag. Whilst I had a superb expertise with the products here, the only item I'd purchase out of the four is the Depart-In Conditioner.
