I paid about $125 for it and got the color done at Columbia Mall in Columbia, MD at Salon Cielo. John is the manager and does my color. He is excellent.

Ya know, I learned my lesson - I pay professionals for professional services. I have tried the D&L hair color and other products and my hair will dry out if not done properly so now I just suck it up and pay the money.

I totally understand! A few times, I let a friend of mine relax my hair. What was I thinking?

Default when u guys were postin gpics of those celebritites...

how can u tell if their hair is 3c, 4a or 4b---particularly angela davis. it look like she just blew her hair out....even if her hair wasn't that tightly curled...by brushing out the curls, or jsut by havng coarse hair---she would have circular hair.
i just think unless you are fixing someone's hair urself..or she has done NOTHING to alter how her hair naturally looks----something you never see in black women.

Yes. Please explain.

Webbie,
Your hair looks so soft, like clouds. Beautiful!

The pics above your reply are of Webbie(one of the mod's here) who classifies herself as a 4a.

I think that most of the pics here are representatives of what 4a/b hair CAN look like, not that they necessarily are(since 4b hair in particular is classified as not having a definite curl pattern). I believe they're for styling purposes and for inspiration.

But I think people weren't questioning that part of your last statement. They wanted clarification for this quote:

That's a huge sweeping generalization. Maybe all the Black women you've encountered don't embrace their natural hair, but that doesn't mean that there aren't women who do. Look at this site as well as other sites such as ourhair.net and nappurality.com. There are plenty of Black women who embrace their curliness/kinkiness/nappiness.

It's no problem. I think that people read that statement and were like .

Just wanted to know what your reasoning was behind the statement. No need to feel awkward. We're all adults here. Most of us, anyway.

The hair typing system is just one of many ways to classify the curl/kink pattern. Andre makes a very vague reference if at all to the acutal texture of the hair (fine, coarse etc). There are other hair typing systems out there as well. Although it does provide a starting point in terms of finding advice, most members here know it is a limited way of finding comprehensive advice.

As for my hair, I have multi-textured hair, from densly packed fine 4b pieces in the crown, to coarser 3c pieces by the nape. In both pictures very little product was used - mostly something for shine. My hair has stretched out in some areas since it has grown.

As for the pictuers, I think it's an encouraging way to show type 4's (especially those who are thinking of going natural) that there are many style choices for various lengths. There's quite a bit of misinformation out there, even to the point of professionals saying the only options for type 4 hair is a short afro, locks, or sisterlocks Also pictures help others to identify thieir "hair twin" and ask that person advice that would be most helpful.

in refernce to the the part of my statemnet u guys were worrying about.. i rarely meet balck women who jsut let their hari dry as is... with no styling products or any kind of braiding/stretching out.... or even blowdrying,.... while i will meet women like that in real life... the pictures earlier of diana ross, and some of the models--excluding cropped hair, obviously styled their hair in some way... but considering they were sources of inpiration for hairstles---- it all makes sense, so just ignore that comment
