Default Please recommend oil-free, glycerin free alternatives to Deva

Hi, I've been getting so confused going through the old posts about what else to try. I'm 3B, fine curls--I love the way my curls look with Deva but lately, to my shock, it seems to be drying my hair. I've actually noticed split ends for the first time in YEARS--plus the oil and glycerin in it seems to fade out my Robert Craig hair color sooner than I'd like!

I know a lot of you started with Deva and then moved on to other products, but I'm totally confused what to try next. Can anyone help? Hair Rules? Mop Top? ANything?

Thanks, thanks, thanks,

look at people's signature, what they are using and what their hair properties are. find someone whose hair is similar to yours and maybe start there?
i, personally, always recommend curl junkie, i feel there is something for all hair types in the cj line, and it is sooo moisturizing. you only need small amounts, not the palmfuls i used to use with deva! plus, you can buy curl junkie on aveyou.com.
you can go to the curljunkie website and click on the selection guide for a start. the owner, marsha, is extremely helpful if you email her.

i am sure others will chime in with their favorite products. good luck!

I used to be a Deva die hard until one dry winter it just stopped working and I switched to Kinky Curly. When Deva changed the formula, I tried it again and it made my hair feel fried.

These days I'm discovering the wonders of Curl Junkie.
Have several allergies and sensitivities.
Current products
Low Poo/Cowash: Rio Grande Herb Co Negrita and Amole Deep Treatment Concentrate, Magick Botanicals (MB) Shampoo (diluted)
Rinse out/Leave in: MB with apricot kernel and jojoba oils added
Protein Treatment: MB Conditioner for Thinning Hair, IAgirl's protien treatment
Style: MB Gel mixed with LOTD Aloe Vera Gelly

2b-c, need lots of moisture, likes protein in moderation.
