It’s very Thick
Haircare brand Mixed Chicks (obtainable right here) has been on my radar since 2012. Again hairline loss then I used to be interning for magazine Black Magnificence & Hair and that i had the pleasure of assembly the curly-haired founders, Wendi Levy and Kim Etheredge. I really resonated with their expertise of utilizing the out there hair merchandise on the market, which were made for both very dry hair or oily hair with little in between. Wendi and Kim explained that their model was for many who didn’t slot in to those categories and though my hair was relaxed straight I hoped that the merchandise would still work for me. Briefly, I tried a number of of the merchandise with little success. Coming back to them three years later I wished to have an open mind as my hair has modified so much since then.
Gentle Clarifying Shampoo (£11.90/300ml)*
I really like this shampoo which supplies a number of slip and makes my hair really silky. It does not actually lather but it surely still cleanses and removes build-up effectively. I’ve tried this with and without making use of a pre shampoo therapy first and it did make my strands a little dry with the latter. Though I will proceed to use it when it runs out I don’t suppose I might purchase it as I’ve a few shampoos I like already.
Depart-In Conditioner (£15.90/300ml)*
I have been utilizing this leave-in regularly because it gives gorgeous definition. You might have to use it when the hair is wet or it may possibly depart your strands sticky so I depend on this when my hair has simply been freshly washed or dampened first. I apply it fairly generously but if you utilize a lot it could make the hair feel a bit crunchy. I usually just add a little bit of my moisturiser when my hair is fully dry to make it delicate once more with out disturbing the definition. I like the scent and my hair doesn’t get frizzy when utilizing this. Though this depart-in is pricey it is positively a product I am going to decide up when it runs out.
Detangling Deep Conditioner (£10.90/236ml)*
I really wanted to love this product as deep conditioners are my absolute favorite merchandise to use. It’s totally thick, buttery and smells lovely but I find this lacking something. It isn’t formulated with significantly special elements which is somewhat disappointing considering the high worth. The directions state to ‘apply and rinse’ too which I found a little bit confusing as deep conditioners normally must be left on from anywhere from 5-30 minutes. I’ve been largely leaving it on my hair with a steamer for roughly 10-quarter-hour and it’s allowed me to detangle my strands very easily. Without utilizing my steamer nevertheless this deep conditioner would not give my thirsty hair the moisture it wants. It’s best suited to hair that doesn’t get very dry.
Morning After Redefining Foam (£11.90/236ml)*
I like the concept of this product, which is purported to refresh curls without the necessity for re-wetting the hair, but I am not totally sold on the precise product itself. Ive used it a number of occasions in an try to deliver back curl definition (often lost while sleeping) and it does work but I’ve to use so much to actually make any impression, which solely leaves my hair wet and slightly sticky.
Overall it is clear Combined Chicks merchandise work a lot better for my hair now being natural/texlaxed than it did when my hair was totally relaxed. I really like the packaging and fragrance of the products but I’m not solely satisfied there’s enough respectable substances inside to warrant the excessive value tag. While I had a superb expertise with the merchandise right here, the only item I might purchase out of the four is the Go away-In Conditioner.
