Pros: Works Well, Resists Humidity, Defines Curls
Cons: Shrinks Curls, Sticky Consistancy
Mixed Chicks Leave-In conditioner is a decent product. I will reduce frizz, and define curls. I wasnt completely impressed with it however, as it didnt fully deliver what it promised.
Finally, a curl-defining system designed for "us." Whether you're black, white, asian, latin, mediterranean, or any glorious combination of the above, you'll love the way these non-sticky, lightweight, products leave your hair inviting to touch as they define and lock moisture into every curl. Reconstruct damaged areas and transform style-stubborn hair into easy to maintain tresses. This deep conditioner softens, detangles and moisturizes your beautiful curly tresses.

How to Use
Squeeze a quarter size amount in palms, rub into hair.
I used Mixed Chicks after shampooing and conditioning my hair. I have medium coiled curly/wavy hair.
When I first poured it on my hands, it felt sticky. Eww to say the least. I rubbed it into my hair and noticed a difference, immediately. It did define my curls! Very well. It eliminated the frizz completely. However, it SHRUNK my curls. It was nice not to have them weighed down, but I can tell you that I lost about two inches of length.
Another unnerving thing about Mixed Chicks is that it claims to be made of natural ingredients. It is, but isnt. It contains a very strong (although not that yummy smelling) fragrance, many different types of alcohol and benzoic acid. It does have a few natural ingredients, including safflower oil.
Mixed Chicks will definitely stand up to humidity. No matter how hot, steamy, sunny or wet your weather is your curls will not frizz. It wont feel greasy at all, which is another great attribute of Mixed Chicks. It works all day, and all night! Really, I mean it! I used it in the morning around 10am, and it was still frizz free around 10pm. My hair did feel soft and not stiff at all with this product.
With continued use I didnt see a difference in the health of my hair. It looked pretty nice, but Ive used products with more natural ingredients that eliminate frizz and help the health of hair much more.
