DevaCurl Help!!!

  • 1 Post By rbb

Hello all!
I'm somewhat new here. Have been lurking around reading info.
I've recently purchased DevaCurl products; the one condition and ultra defining gel and maybe I'm not using them right.
I follow the Deva 3-step and wash with low poo (Eden Coconut cleanser) and then follow with one condition. I leave the one condition in my hair and apply the gel. I've tried simply scrunching it as as recommended by Devas how to videos and I've also tried raking it in. I find with both methods, when my hair dries it feels dry and sticky (even after I've scrunched out the crunch).
Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong or can do differently?
Thank you!
deva products dry out my hair. it could be the products, not your method.

Around here, Deva is a love/hate line. Many of us started out with them, thought we liked them and then moved on to other products that work a lot better. I used the original products, haven't tried any of the newer products or reformulations. Only product I have, and occasionally use, is the Believe In.

I never had luck with the Deva products. They make my curls look great, but they always feel very producty and then my underneath curls get really tangled by the end of the day. I still use the Deva method and the hand dryer, but now use other products that work great for my hair.
mostly 3a/fine/high porosity/low density

Are there any other products you girls can recommend?
My hair is medium texture, medium porosity and tends to frizz at the top of my head.
I feel like I have tried everything with nothing really working properly!
have you tried any curl junkie products? you can go to her website, click on selection guide to get you started.
look at people's signatures to see what products they are using.

I'd look around the forum at signatures of people with similar/same hair properties as you and see what they use.
