It's A Miracle Feb 06, 2008
By J. Eldredge
I purchased the leave-in conditioner for my 2 1/2 yr. old daughter, and received it yesterday. I had to write my own review because I wouldn't believe it if it didn't see it for myself. My daughter has never had a good hair day since the day she was born. No lie. I have spent a lot of money trying to find something that would work on her unusually soft, very, very curly, frizzy hair. Living in humid Florida, no matter what product I used she somehow would end up looking like Don King or Albert Einstein -- the latter would be considered a good day. HOWEVER, I tried the Mixed Chicks product on her and IT WORKED! I am still in disbelief. It's like a dream. Nothing has ever worked! My husband came home yesterday afternoon and commented how Zoe's hair is the best he's ever seen it and what did I do to it. FYI, my husband never notices anything! I dyed my hair several shades lighter weeks ago and he still hasn't noticed. But he noticed my daughter's hair. The next day (today) I just spritz her hair with water and it looked great. I didn't even have to re-apply. Wow! I've already told my parents and siblings (we're mixed hispanics)about his product. The ladies should expect a lot more customers. I'm going to tell everyone!!!

Great Leave-In Conditioner Dec 01, 2007
This really is a great product. I'm half black/half white (3C hair) and for years it's been hard to find products that will make my hair look AND feel great. This stuff is not just leave-in conditioner, but it will also replace mousse or a medium hold gel. I would not recommend using this with another holding product, but every type of hair is different.
I was a little wary of the reviews that I've seen on Mixed Chicks (they seemed a little too good to be true) but my hair has never looked and felt so great. I've been complimented by people I didn't even think would notice! Plus, it smells great! I will definitely buy more and more of this.
Also, I recommend buying the shampoo and deep conditioner as well.
About 9 months ago I quit using Mixed Chicks products because I decided to try the Curly Girl method, which involves eliminating certain ingredients that this contains. I will not change my star rating because it is still one of the best non-CG products I've used, and it totally changed my hair.
Anyway, I would like to mention that after hanging around the naturallycurly.com message boards, I have found that you either love this product or hate it. I am saddened that several people have tried this with poor results, and it just goes to show that people with similar looking hair can still require different types of products for their hair. If that is you, I've heard good things about Blended Beauty products, so maybe that is the product for you. You also might want to consider the Curly Girl/Guy (CG) method as explained on the NC message boards.
I am going to post this update on my reviews of Mixed Chick's products as well.
P.S. For those that experience "crunchiness" remember to scrunch out the crunch with damp hands after your hair is finished drying.

The method.... Sep 13, 2010
By E. Davenport
I've recently decided to accept the reality that I have curly hair, will always have curly hair, and I shouldn't waste time straightening it every day. On a mission to find the perfect product I came across Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner. Although initially I wasn't getting amazing results, after awhile I perfected a method and now I can say this is by far the best product I've used for my curls. Although it seems a bit expensive, a little goes a long way and it's completely worth it. I have chin length hair with a mix of 3a curls on the top and 3b curls on the bottom and this is how I use the product to end up with seriously NO FRIZZ perfect curls that are completely soft, bouncy, and shiny:
1. After a shower I towel dry my hair slightly so it isn't dripping wet, but not much more than that.
2. I put a pea size drop of Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner in my hands and evenly distribute it around my hair. I don't use any other products: no gels, mousses, or hair spray. I know, it's hard not to, but just try it.
3. I do the twirl hair around finger trick on the top layer of my hair to make curly sections.
4. Then LEAVE IT ALONE. Don't touch it. Don't look at it. Don't even think about your hair. Don't twiddle it. Don't scrunch it some more. Don't blow dry it. I know, also quite difficult.
5. When it is completely dry (yes, completely, don't cheat here) you'll notice it kind of looks like you put gel in your hair: a little crispy. Scrunch the hair a bit and the crunchiness goes completely away and you get the softest curls that have zero frizz (unless it's like 100% humidity...no cure for that other than moving to a desert).
I follow the curlygirls method of no shampooing/avoiding silicone products/etc for the most part, except I use this product. I haven't had a problem with build up to this point (I've been using it for about two months) so I recommend trying that if you hadn't already.
Bottom line: GREAT product. Try it, if it doesn't work for you you can always give it to another curly head friend. They'll end up loving you forever.

My Favorite Curly Hair Product in a Long Time Dec 29, 2009
I learned about this product about 2 years ago. I'd come to terms with my black/white curly hair a few years before, thanks to Lorraine Massey's Curly Girl book (a must read for those with curls, in my opinion). I'd taken some techniques from the book that I've been consistently happy with, such as cutting out shampoo completely (or sulfate free shampoos) and leaving in a regular conditioner (I'm now using Giovanni organics as they are silicone free). Still, I needed an extra something to achieve the defined curl I desired (the gel Ms. Massey recommended wasn't doing it for me).
Enter Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner. Granted, I found that alone, this product didn't quite do what I wanted. But when I added it to my routine, it was the best thing I've ever found! My routine now looks like this:
1) Wet hair daily
2) Comb through wet hair with Giovanni Smooth as Silk or 50:50 Balanced Hydrating-Calming Conditioner, leaving it in
3) Comb through (still wet) hair with Mixed Chicks
4) Once a week, use sulfate free shampoo and deep conditioner before above.
Now, my hair DOES DRY CRUNCHY. But that's how my desired products work (not so for everyone, I realize). As soon as my hair is completely dry and crunchy, I scrunch it up with my hands, breaking the cast. And lo and behold, the perfect curls, well-defined and prone to compliments.
Obviously, curly hair products aren't one size fits all, as curls tend to be completely unique. But perhaps some version of the above will work for you!
