WATCH: The Ladies of Carol's Daughter Talk Good Hair

04/26/2011 at 10:30 AM ET

As the new faces of Carol’s Daughter, Cassie, Selita Ebanks and Solange Knowles are representing the beauty of multiracial women everywhere. And it’s not just about skincare and makeup — it’s about luscious, sometimes-hard-to-tame locks, too. “From the time I was born ’til probably about 12 years old, my hair was pin straight,” Cassie says in the clip above. “And I prayed every night that I had hair like my mom’s,” which was lush and curly. “As soon as I hit puberty, my hair started to curl,” she continues. “Now it’s going back the other way.” Knowles, who went from a long, straight style to a shaved head to a fro, says she enjoys seeing the reactions to her changing looks. “Cutting my hair … it doesn’t even feel brave,” she says. “To me, [it’s] just another outlet of expression. It’s funny to see the social response, their interpretations of what a haircut, what a hair change means.” Hear more from the new hair and makeup models in the clip above.

OK, I have lots of white hair, and all of my whole hair is my natural color. I have had hairs that I’ve noiectd when they fell out or whatever that had turned white partway through. So the bottom ends were the regular color, and then they turn white along the way. I guess that’s how it works? I think I always was under the impression the regular falls out and it grows back white. But apparently not so much. But I have no idea why yours would change twice. Other than.. Surprise! Pretty! Maybe?
