We have the amazing opportunity to review the Mixed Chicks Kids!
We liked the adult Mixed Chicks Line, so I was super excited to test out the Mixed Chicks Kids.
The Claim: Finally, a curl-defining system for "us". Whether you're black, white, asian, latin, mediterranean, or any glorious combination of the above, you'll love the way these non-sticky, lightweight curly hair products leave your hair inviting to touch as they define and lock moisture into every curl. Be a proud part of our multiracial movement..."MIXED CHICKS" your curls! And yes, it not only works on wavy, tightly curled or straight hair but it also works on weaves.

Review: The first thing that I loved is that it is tear-free. Finally, we can throw J&J products in the trash. This is safe for the little ones who may get shampoo in their eyes. I had that happen too many times for my kids, especially my Son who doesn't sit still during bath time, accidents happen. But no worries, with this. The smell is pleasant. I didn't have to use much, about 3 squirts for his hair. With N, I had to pump more, but there is still plenty left in this bottle. Smells like oranges/citrus. I gave N a hot oil treatment, before shampooing, her hair did not feel stripped after washing.

Review: Pro: I really liked this conditioner. Con: I just wish the bottle was bigger.
We go through conditioner very quickly, since I have to use so much for N's hair. A huge bottle would be excellent! N's hair felt really soft after rinsing it out. It also has great slip for detangling, but I was surprised there was no fragrance. I figured since the shampoo was scented this would be too. But no biggie.
Leave In Conditioner

Review: After rinsing out the conditioner, I applied the Leave In Conditioner in sections. Then sealed with our shea butter mix. Then I twisted N's hair in about 25 twists all over her hair. I did not use any other styling product. The next day, I removed the twists and this is our results.

Look at her definition. Proof on how well these products work is in the pics lol.
Not crunchy, a soft hold, but yet really defined.

Review: The next day, I used this to refresh her twistout. I sprayed a few shots and had her shake her head. Then I fluffed her hair a bit, added a headband, and that was it! It's lightweight, so it didn't weigh her hair down. Smells good. I love how it is a spray, so that I don't have to run my fingers through her hair, which can mess up the definition. I know it says on the bottle that it is great for detangling, but it is too light to detangle for N's curls. So I stuck with the conditioner for detangling. Overall, we didn't really need to apply this product. The shampoo, conditioner, and leave in, and shea butter was good enough for her hair. But for those who don't like shea butter, then this is a good alternative.
