The first time I used Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner ($11), I was in the process of growing out my relaxer. Boy, it was a process alright! My hair is super thick and the transition ended up being too time consuming and costly for me personally. I’m a low maintenance girl and growing out my relaxer was a lot of work, therefore I ended up going back to relaxers. Just so you have a visual, here’s a pic of my hair curly and straight…
This review is two fold simply because I used Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner before (when I was growing out my relaxer) and after (when I started getting relaxers again). While I was going natural it was such a daunting task trying to choose products that worked well with my hair and helped with the manageability of transitioning from permed to natural. Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner was one of the products I tried but did not seem to get the results I expected.
Today I’ve got a quick giveaway for you all. A pair of products from the new No Frizz line that I recently saw in the hair section at Sephora. Living Proof is the brand behind these innovative products (and their awesome packaging!) for keeping hair sleekly straight or curled without using silicones or oils.
Up for grabs are the Wave Shaping/Curl Defining Styling Treatment and the Straight Making Styling Treatment — a combined $30 value!
Curly-haired ladies, the search is over. According to TotalBeauty.com editors and users, these products successfully tame, soften and sculpt curls to their finest, Botticelli-esque state. Read on to find out which conditioners and styling aids will finally get you to stop calling your hair “kinky,” “frizzy” or (gasp!) “shapeless.”
I was half surprised, half not when I saw this video. Sadly, it didn’t surprise me that the black hair industry is dominated by non-blacks. It’s the extent of the domination that really got me. As one YouTube-r so eloquently put it:
“No one is saying it is the Koreans fault. It is our fault for letting them set up in our neighborhoods and patronizing their businesses. Try setting up a Korean food restaurant owned by African-Americans in a Korean part of town and see how long it stays in business. It will be out of business by lunchtime.”
