Sunday, August 10
I have to laugh sometimes when my relatives look at Buttercup's ever-curling hair and then at mine. It's always with a snap of the lips that they say, "Aye, M'ija, maybe her hair will be more like her daddy's? It might be better, don't worry."
Better? Right....they mean better "than mine."
And people wonder why I grew up with a complex about my frizzy, corkscrew curls?
Remember my review of the Mixed Chicks shampoo? Well, I'm back to tell you about their Hair Silk and Leave-in Conditioner. And I'll tell you all one thing right off the bat; Buttercup could wake up with a 'fro worthy of the 1970's, and I wouldn't even bat an eye.
I've already got my secret weapon.
Up until a former co-worker introduced me to this stuff, I was spending boku bucks on tons of curly hair products and attempting to "mix" my own concoction each morning as I got ready for work. All told, I'd probably use 6 products at a time just to keep my hair from scaring the children on their way to school as I made my way to my car, and I had resigned myself to my fate of crunchy-curls and 'fro 'fro mornings.
Then I hesitantly tried the Leave-in conditoner, not for a second believing that I wouldn't need to use anything else in my hair, and certainly not buying their claims of "lightweight, non-sticky, and moisturizing."
Fast forward to just 48 hours later, and my arsenal of crap was in the garbage and I had already placed an order for three bottles of Happy at $16.99 a piece!
I can't even begin to explain the ego-boost that came with my newfound springy locks. Not only was I getting complimented left and right, but now my hair actually MOVED with the wind! It was heaven and I was loving every minute of it.
And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, Mixhed Chicks sent me a bottle of their Hair silk to try out. I didn't think I could improve on perfection, but wow!
Now, to be honest, I really wasn't thinking I was going to like this stuff. There were too many memories of nasty-oily hair from trying over-the-counter frizz busters that had just left a bad taste in my mouth. But I was pleasantly totally surprised to find that the Hair Silk does what it says it will do (read: leave you with a shiny head of hair, prevent fly-aways and split-ends, and all the while leaving your hair feeling like, well, your hair---only better!)
For what this stuff accomplishes, I certainly would be willing to pay the $11.99 for another bottle!
Now for your favorite part: Mixed Chicks has graciously provided me with one 10 oz bottle of their Leave-in conditioner to offer up to one lucky winner! Remember, this stuff works great on all kinds of curls for both kids and adults!
