Chemically treated hair can damage biracial hair. Speaking from experience a perm was accidently put into my hair and damaged my hair for about three year. When damage is caused from a perm you have to wait until the perm grows out which is a long transitioning process. A perm is not for fine or thin hair in my opinion. Keep in mind that chemically treated hair can cause hair damage such as split ends and can cause breakage.
Parents have gone with the approach of chemically treating their biracial child’s hair with the misconception of: ”this will make my morning easier”. Chemically treated hair does not make doing your child’s hair easier. In reality a perm requires more maintenance than wearing your hair natural.
If you approach is natural hair care I HIGHLY Recommend: ”Mixed Chicks Hair Products”.
Mixed Chicks Hair Products was created by two mixed chicks. Who better to know what biracial hair needs other than a mixed chick? I struggled for years bouncing from product to product trying to find one that works with my curly hair. I have been scammed into using Pantene, Garnier Fructis, Tresemme, Herbal Essences and Sun silk, trying out all of their products for curly hair. None of their products left my hair healthy! They always dried my hair out, which is a big NO… NO!
Mixed Chicks has a line of products to meet every Biracial hair care need. I have been using their products for some years now consistently! My hair has grown more in the past few years than in my whole life. I use the Mixed chicks shampoo, deep conditioner, leave in conditioner and hair serum. If you want to go natural . . . go with Mixed Chicks as your hair products.

Lately there has been a big trend going on worldwide! “Going Natural”
Everywhere I turn, I see people of all races and ethnic backgrounds embracing their unique selves and unique hair. “Oh what a joy!”
As, I have recently blogged about not blow drying my hair; I am totally for everyone caring for their hair naturally. In the past there has been a major misconception of what is beautiful and exceptable in society.
“Who says that straight hair is more beautiful than defined curls; whether loose or kinky?”
“Why do you flat iron or perm your hair?”
“Is that all you think is beautiful?”
Embrace your natural hair, appreciate it. Women tend to fight their tresses instead of caring for their precious hair. It’s not worth damaging your hair for society.
Natural Hair does not mean hard work and tough, rough tussle with your locks. There are so many wonderful products available for naturally curly hair.
Carol’s Daughter is a wonderful product line for naturally curly hair. It allows you to nurture your precious curls and still look beautiful.

Ladies & Possibly Gents,
We all have made at least one countless hair mistake in our life, or lifetime yet to come. Whether it is from lack of patience to lack of time. We all must learn to work with our hair and not against it!
Hair Damage is caused by lack of moisture and thermal protection, chemicals, flatirons, blow dryers, (heat from any source; including violent sun rays). As soon as you step out of your natural hair state, you become the victim of “Bad Hair”. In my opinion, “Good Hair” is healthy natural hair. Your hair grows much faster and healthier in its natural state. On the other hand, “Nappy Hair” is damaged hair. If you are fighting you hair with chemicals and heat, you should really re-think your hair care regimen.
I will never forget a day when I was in Apple Bee’s and my waiter had long beautiful curly hair like mine, and we complimented each other. She mentioned to me that she has never flat ironed her hair. I was shocked to hear that. My waiter told me that her parents always instilled in her that she should love her curly hair because there are so many celebrities and people that pay so much to get beautiful curls. Therefore, why destroy your natural curls, when there is someone out there that envy’s you for your natural beauty. I will forever remember that day and conversation.
I love my curly hair! My hair is special to me because not just anyone can wash and go and be happy with how their hair flawlessly falls into place.
