DevaCare is supposed to be designed for color treated hair. I've used both and I definitely prefer DevaCare. The No-Poo has coco betaine listed higher in the ingredient list (DevaCurl No-Poo has it listed down near the preservatives but DevaCare has it listed up with the other cleansers), so it's effective for dealing with the occasional intentional or accidental silicone product use. I also find the DevaCare One C doesn't leave my hair feeling gunky the way that the DevaCurl version does.
I also have fine 3a hair and I still use gel most of the time. Where some people will go for clumpy gels like Eco Styler I find that my curls do better with thinner consistency gels- Biotera, AG Liquid Effects, Curly Sexy Hair Liquid Curling Gel. If I'm air drying (which is most of the time) I can even get away with spray gel (currently experimenting with LAL Beachy Mega Waves).
When I do use mousse, my HG is TIGI Curlesque Strong Mousse. Good hold, good curl definition.
