Around here, Deva is a love/hate line. Many of us start with it, think we like it, then move on to things we like much better. Since they changed the ingredients years ago, I won't let them use it on me at my salon. A few cuts ago, my CJ Daily Fix rolled out of the bag (in the car.) It was too late when I found out. Let them use the NoPoo on my hair. BIG MISTAKE. My hair hates polyquats and they are in a lot of the Deva products. Had to do a sulfate shampoo to remove it!
Another suggestion I'd make is not to use the microfiber towel. For me, they cause frizz. I use Curlease and Curls Like Us. You can also buy flour sack towels cheaply or use an old 100% cotton tee shirt.
