Best African-American actresses in Hollywood 2 -- ANGELA BASSETT

She portrayed Tina Turner in the movie “What’s Love Got To Do With It” and I liked her role there. She received an award for her debut role in that film too. She is the only African-American woman to win an award for a musical or comedy. She also played the role of mother of Michael Jackson in the television series ‘The Jacksons: An American Dream’. She is good in her performance in the movies; Betty Shabazz in the film Malcolm X, Panther, Rosa Parks in the film “Rosa parks Story” and her performance in the film “Notorious“. She started her career starting 1986.

Whoopi Goldberg is a multi talented actress-comedian, singer, song writer and a co-host of “The View”. She is the First African American woman in 1994 to host the Academy Award. She won an Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy, and by that alone she stands out as one among the best. Her first film was in 1985 “The Color Purle” and she played the role of Celie, and was nominated for Best actress in Oscars but she lost, but then she won the same for Golden Globe award. She appeared in “the Ghost” movie winning best supporting actress in the Golden Globe. I like her in the “Sisters Act“, “Made in America” and “How Stella got her Groove“, :Girl Interrupted” and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Curious -- is it the color or the conditioning?

I'm African American and my hair is naturally now increasingly gray and dark ash brown. I've been lightening it out of a box for a year now and I'm due to get it dyed black this week at Arrojo Studios, but I'm nervous. I've been using Feria and it finally took its toll.
I've seen African American actresses with deep dark, black shiny hair (I'm thinking Gabrielle Union) and I'm wondering if that's actually the color or the actual condition of her hair? I want to know exactly what to show and tell this stylist, and because my hair is in such dry condition from home-coloring, I'm wondering if my hair will just look dry
