Au Natural - How Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner Changed The Way I Style My Hair

When the summer months start to roll around, I tend to let my hair air dry to it's natural texture. Which can quickly become a hot mess, to say the least. Humidity and I have had a love/hate relationship for as long as I can remember. I've always had a natural wave to my hair, which was a pain in my teenage years as I was convinced that pin straight hair was the only style for me.

After years of feeble flat iron fights against it, I've learned to accept that my hair just wants to be wavy this time of year.
What I've recently learned, is that I can have some say in how my waves take shape.

Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner - $16.99 USD 
I recently took the advice from my mom to try a leave-in conditioner from a company called Mixed Chicks. They always say mother knows best, and it certainly rings true in this case given that I inherited her hair texture. She swears it's the only product that's ever given her beautiful, defined curls without any crunchy or sticky texture. I had to give it a try after seeing how gorgeous her curls were looking!

I've been using the Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner after washing with my regular shampoo and lightly towel drying my hair (just so it's not sopping wet). I find that my hair not only air-dries faster with this, but it completely eliminates any frizz that usually occurs. It doesn't feel weighed-down at all, either!
What I'm left with are these gorgeous, touchable curls that look perfectly undone. No heat-styling needed, which means my colour can resist fading for even longer!

Who needs to go to the beach when the perfect mermaid waves are right here?!

Even my next day hair looks flawless when using this product. I find if I need a touch more definition or volume, I can reach for my fave texture spray (I'm personally obsessed with The Wave Maker from Cake Beauty). It feels so wonderful to embrace my natural hair without putting much effort into styling it. I've finally found the perfect wash-&-go product!

Not only have I become obsessed with this product, I'm truly appreciative of the brand's inclusivity. They recognize that individuals of all different ethnicities can have textured hair, and have formulated a line of products that work for all varieties of curls. It's a nice departure from the typical products designated for 'normal hair'; because really, what is normal anyway?

Can't help but smile when your hair looks and feels this good!
For all the corkscrew cuties and wavy-haired wonders reading this, I cannot recommend Mixed Chicks enough!
You can shop Mixed Chicks online, or at your local Shoppers Drug Mart location.
