I've been more thorough with my attempts at using Jessicurl products (I found the packaged trial size products at a local beauty/hair supply store) than I have been with Deva products. Of the latter, I've only tried the OneC and Arc Angell
. The OneC strikes me as . . . okay. I don't have any real strong opinions on it (though I do kind of like the smell). Arc Angell
and me just do not agree. I had ordered that over Angell because it seems the general opinion is that is has stronger hold. It's not idiot proof enough for me. I either use too little or too much and my hair turns out frizzy or flat/producty and never with well-defined curls.
On the other hand, I have had some of my best curly days when I've washed with Jessicurl's hair cleansing cream
, conditioned with Too Shea! (my hair soaks the stuff right up), then scrunched in Rockin' Ringlets, followed by Confident Coils
. I also think CC + Awe Inspiraling Spray
work really well together as a mid-day hair perk-up. (I have yet to find products that last me all
day.) So, my affections tend to lean towards Jessicurl. However, I'm still working on finding those perfect products and combinations . . .
