Unfortunately that is what's buzzing !!!
Sally's Beauty Supply is being sued by the very popular brand Mixed Chicks! Mixed Chicks sells haircare products targeted towards women with curly hair although their products work well with other hair textures as well. Sally's is very known for switching up a label on a product and creating their own CHEAPER version of that product. I don't know if the ingredients are all the same but they definitely make the bottles close to the more expensive brands so buyers can compare. Lets be honest if you see two things side by side that favor eachother in look and possibly ingredients you'll definitley go for the cheaper one. I know when I first saw it I instantly thought of the Mixed chicks brand so there is no doubt in my mind that they had no intentions of dubb'n their product and THEN the icing on the cake is that their product is named Mixed Silk !! LOL... Well um Okay! Below is a sample of information I took from Essence.com
This just in: one of the most beloved haircare lines for naturally curly women and kids, Mixed Chicks, just filed suit against Sally Beauty Supply. The reason? Mixed Chicks is claiming that the mega beauty chain's new hair line, Mixed Silk, is infringing on the their trademark. They're also alleging that Sally Beauty Supply is using the Mixed Chicks logo on its website to direct consumers to their infringing products...
Mixed Chicks Co-Founder Kim Etheredge has this to say: "We've worked hard to build the reputation of the Mixed Chicks product as one of high quality. We want our clients to know that the Mixed Silk products have no connection with our products, and Mixed Chicks has not endorsed or authorized them." We're fans of both Mixed Chicks and Sally Beauty Supply, and hope that they reach an agreement soon!
Below you can clearly see the comparison of the products! I know everyone is just trying to keep their businesses above float but it's room for everyone! I hope everything works out for both companies. Although I've never used either or product lol i'm sure they're great!
