    I would love to dye my hair the color in that first pic, but it would probably all fall off!

    Thanks for the link.

    I am sure it was. I remember reading that member's post when she discovered it on the bottle. I cant remember her name exactly...maybe it was msjoker. :wink:
    I have kinks, coils and curls on this head.

    It was a member from this site. It was Portae.
    A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

    My last highlight job was done w/ Clairol Textures & Tones. No major dryness at all. HTH!

    That was me who wrote the letter. I actually posted about this situation here and on nappturality.com.

    Agreed! Portae really made a difference in taking action and speaking up.

    It's a nicely done article too, with great pictures and a much needed overall message. I only wish it were even broader to represent even more non-Stepford curl types than bushy afros. But, it's a good start! :)
