Curly Bella Gives Mixed Chicks a Twirl


Geared toward multicultural women, the Mixed Chicks line was created to fill the void between other products. As the daughter of parents of different ethnicities (both with curls!), I've encountered problems where most products geared toward Black

consumers were too heavy and greasy for my hair, while the others were not strong enough to tame my mane.

Of the four products I tested, my favorite is this Deep Conditioner ($11) — I love the thick, creamy feel, and a tiny bit worked wonders on my hair. I could separate tangles easily, my hair loved the moisturizing safflower oil, and it rinses right out (so no heavy, residue feel).

Get my take on the other standout product from this line when you read more.

A close second is the Leave-in Conditioner ($17). With jojoba and primrose oils, it adds moisture and a very mild scent. It wasn't greasy nor was there any "crunch." While my hair felt soft to touch, I preferred the results when also adding my usual post-shower product because I prefer a bit more hold and shape when wearing my hair wavy.

Did you know these products existed? And have any of my curly pals tested it out, too?
