Question:
What do you think about Mixed Chicks products?
Answer:

Though I love the idea of these products, I haven't tried the Mixed Chicks products because I'm really strict about ingredients, and many of their products have things I avoid.

It looks like the Leave-in conditioner has a sticky ingredient (pvp crosspolymer) in it which I avoid because it can build up.

The Deep Conditioner has Sodium chloride, which I don't use in a product I'm going to leave in my hair. Sodium chloride is salt, and I find salt to be corrosive (if you've ever seen the bottoms of cars in places where they use rock salt in winter, you will see what it can do. Plus, salt can be really irritating in higher doses. It eats away my lips when I eat corn on the cob with salt on it).

The Shampoo has a really strong cleanser in it (TEA lauryl sulfate), so it looks too harsh to me.

Based on these ingredients, I can't recommend these products.
