Deva product users...

Here I go again... I had my hair cut today. For those of you who don't know, my stylist is devachan trained and uses the deva product line.
I stopped using the deva products because something was drying my hair out and I wasn't getting good results.
But after she did my hair today - it looks FAB!! My hair is fine and thin so I don't normally like defined, tight curls because you can see my scalp. But she showed me (at least it worked for her when she did it) how to place my hair after diffusing. She messed with it quite a bit and didn't get any frizz at all.
So.. I so want to keep getting these results. What is the trick to the products?? She uses alot on my hair and I use a tiny amount. She used arc angell for the gel and she put in quite a bit and she scrunched into soaking wet hair.
And she sprays in quite a bit of SIF. She sprays it in when it's wet and then again for the finish.
IF this stuff doesn't dry my hair out to straw again, I'd sure like to give it another go.
I'm always so afraid of putting in alot of product because my hair is so thin. But she used ALOT. Is that the trick?? Or into very wet hair??
OR her dryer?
I never really asked her since I saw what she was doing differently than me. I just wondered how you deva users use your products...
And I never figured out what dried my hair out either.

I'd like to know too, because when I go to see her I have a feeling I'll have to buy Deva products & I don't remember ever trying any of the line.
I love a nice gooey gel that coats my hair. It makes my hair feel thicker and keeps it in place better.
I love Arc Angel! I just be sure to use a really good conditioner under it.
The trick is to put it on really wet hair, use a pretty good amount. At least in my hair that's the trick. My hair can look real thin if the clumps are too big too.

Good luck and I hope it works for you this time!

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
LOL Liz.... that's what happened to me the first time I went in and when I went in for my color... I bought product!
Medusa: you think oneC would be good enough underneath? Not as a leave in but as a regular condish that has been rinsed out? My hair also LOVES aussie 3 min. miracle.
I so wanted the nature's gate line to work but I'm thinking it's not. It's kind of drying or just not enough. My hair is such a fine line. Too moisturizing and it goes limp, not enough and it doesn't go limp but I don't get good curl and I'll get frizz
Medusa... is your hair very thick?

Darby, did she happen to see if she left any One C in your hair, or did she rinse it all out? Just curious because that can make a difference in your results either way.

She rinsed it all out.

OMG!!!! I didn't get second day hair today so I had to stick it in the sink. I tried to do everything the stylist did and what did I get.... producty looking, wet looking with NO curl at all type of hair. It was GROSS!!! And today was a work day so I had to re-do it all. Used my old products -
I totally give up. I'll let her use her deva products on me when I go in but I'm not going to try it anymore at home. I have no idea what I'm doing differently but something ain't working.
The only thing that was different was I washed my hair in the sink, upside down and she does it the other way around. You know, in the sink but head is like it would be in the shower.

I know this seems like a long shot, and I don't see how it could make THAT big of a difference, but is there any chance you have hard water at home?

yeah, I do. It's well water.

Or soft water for that matter. I have to be careful what I put in my hair or I get gunky hair real easy. It seems like when I go to rinse out conditioners I have to work hard to get them to rinse clean.
And of course hard water will leave stuff in your hair blah

It's always something!

This sounds like my experience with deva products. I'm sure a deva stylist could get excellent results on me with the gels, but I can't. I love NoPoo and I like one c, but the gels were consistently a disaster for me (no matter how wet my hair was, how much I used, didn't use etc).

Would the salon be using purified or distilled water?

I have a filter on my shower, and that's helped a little but our water is granite hard. Still...I get good results from other products.

Sorry you weren't able to duplicate the fabulosity...

Sure is weird how the stylist can get such good results. But I'm not so sure it's the water because I get good results with the other products like HE gels.
In fact I'm on second day hair today using SMU. I started out on SMU and then I started to get crappy results and switched to TT. Well, my hair started to get too whimpy on TT so I switched back to SMU and it's good right now. WEIRD! I haven't gotten second day hair in months!

I can't get the Deva gels to work for me either, Darby, so you're not alone. I love the way Angel smells, but it always dries kind of producty feeling and then gets dull and frizzy as the day goes on. I decided to try it again when you started this thread - I figured maybe I just needed to use more or use it on wetter hair - but I got the same results. Oh well, I have other products that work well.
