Silk Elements has created, what I would call, a generic form of the popular natural hair care line Mixed Chicks.
Their new products, Mixed Silk, have strickingly similar packaging & product color as the well known Mixed Chicks.
It is painfully obvious that Mixed Silk is, for lack of a better phrase, a knock off of Mixed Chicks. Written above a photo of the products, in a Sally Beauty Supply sales paper, it says “compare to Mixed Chicks.”
With all that being said, I am curious to know if Mixed Silk stands up to its tagline and provides “natural curls for natural girls.” At $7.99 you can’t help but to give it a try.
What do you think about Mixed Silk? Would you shy away from these products or give them a go?
