BUT it took me FOREVER to find a product that I really like and that was Grahm Webbs curl definer (teal bottle), anyway Grahm Webb sold out their company and now I am left once again to try every dang product out there until I find one I like. So my question is, do you have a favorite product you use with people that have VERY curly hair?
    I have tried Matrix, Biolage, Paul Mitchell and have not been happy.
    Any suggestions?

    PS. just wanted to remind you one more time how FRIZZY and Curly my hair is...pay no attention to my picture I had it blown out that week.
    was it a gel definer or a cream definer that you liked....let me know

The problem is, my roots are showing really bad. It's totally tacky! I have 3 weeks until my engagement pictures. If I dye my hair, will my roots be showing by the time 3 weeks rolls around? My hair colour isn't too far away from the colour I dye it, but it is a little darker, and I really don't want them showing in my engagement pictures.

          So... how soon can I dye my hair? If I do it now, will my roots be showing in 3 weeks?

          Thanks!!!

          Edited to Add: I also have a wedding to go to this weekend, which is why I'm leaning towards doing it now rather than waiting another week or two!
          lol i am so sorry i would just do it now you will be fine.....where it is very close to your color you will be fine....have you been using the same color for a while?
          dont change the color you have been using it will be a mess if you do...
          also......if you go tanning or go in the sun protect it (hat,towel) it will fade your color....

              if its a 30 min color put it on the roots first and like the last 10 n15 min then bring it through the ends...(our ends are more dry and suck the color in so it can appear darker on the ends i dont know if it ever did it to you before but just an fyi...

                  yes still applies it dries out the ends if you never had a problem do it but it dryes it out beacause your hair is already died on the bottom it only needs to be refreshed...its the roots that need lift and tone so if it a 30 in color put it on the roots make sure you got it all ask the boyfriend to help...then last 15 min bring it through the ends to make it shiny and refreshed..if it a 20 min color put it every where......

                    Hi Cessy! I know you say make sure to trim your ends, but how often? I just got my hair done and I mad te mistake of not telling her how much! She cut just over an INCH off!!!! I nearly freaked out because my hair is shoulder length now and I wanted it longer for the wedding. How the heck can I grow out my hair faster?

                    any advice would be appreciated :)
