In terms of products, Mixed Hair is usually grouped together, but it varies from person to person and should therefore be classified more carefully. Whether your curls are tiny, dense, kink, frizzy or damaged, we've tried every hero hair product for every type of curly problem.
By now, Mixed Hair is well known that the miracle that might work on that coiled Influencer's coil may not automatically produce the same effect on your own wiring harness.
Our understanding of hair products has expanded as natural hair movements gain traction and play an important role in completely changing the global curl and African hair landscape.
Thanks to YouTube tutorials, celebrity show-off textures, a diverse fashion and beauty movement, the rise of black female beauty entrepreneurs and more representative beauty news, this is a good time to celebrate yourself and your heritage.
Many of us have had to find out the hard way what works for our hair - copying the choices of our straight-haired friends, or finding whatever brunette shops have to offer. Even when we spend our hard-earned money on something just because a YouTuber recommends it, it still might not be appropriate because we haven't considered how different their hair type, density and texture are from our own Mixed Hair.
Yes, curling products often mix in the same boat - but one size doesn't fit all. Even a single head can accommodate a variety of textures. Continuing the adventure, we pick the most effective products for each mixed race's curls and take an in-depth look at how to categorize your own hair.
Heat, chemicals, bleach, even just friction - a lot of things can mess up your curls. The curling structure of each strand means there are more corners, which means more potential breaking points. In addition, the natural oil on the scalp doesn't slide to the end as smoothly as a flat strand.
Add any of those SINS (or a series of shivers) to an already weak foundation, and hair can't cope. Fortunately, dropping/reducing them and good product practices can actually reverse the damage.
Perfect for thick curls
Everyone covets a bushy Mixed Hair, but those with it may be frustrated by the number of products that cover all the basics. Formulations that save more energy are key, as are nutritious vegetable oils - your large amount of fat will hold the weight.
