So in light of their new lines, Decadence (for super curly-kinky hair) and Delight (for wavy hair), Deva is getting rid of my one true love: DevaCare. Conveniently I was turned onto one of Shea Moisture's newest lines, the Rose Oil Complex Nourish & Shine Conditioner and Shampoo, so I have a replacement (and just in time)!

But I'm still so sad! Deva's other lines just do not work for me like DevaCare did. When I saw them coming out with new lines and packages and not including DevaCare, I was worried but tried to shake it off. But here it is.

But anyways! My replacement line is just as amazing (if not better)! The Rose Oil Complex line has a super floral, absolutely a-maze-ing smell that just can NOT be beat! (Granted, it is strong, so for sensitive curlies, it may not be the best option). So my sadness is limited in that now, at least I'm spending $28 for a shampoo, conditioner and styler (I'm using Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker for styling) instead of $40 for conditioner, $20 for gel and $20 for shampoo adding up to a painful $80 per trip to replace products.

It was a good run, but my faithfulness to Deva has been cut.

I am also incredibly dramatic LOL

It's good you managed to find decent replacements, it drives me mad when products are discontinued. I'm still struggling to find a conditioner and mousse that really work for me.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Rose Oil line so I'm tempted to try it. Glad you found a good replacement!

Also, I like the way you write and I don't think it's overdramatic

I hate when a product I love gets discontinued. That happened to my favorite mascara. Luckily I was able to buy a couple of tubes from sellers on amazon, but once they're gone....

I'm glad I read this thread, because I love the smell of roses- so I might try one of those.

@Starmie,

Thanks! It's really unfortunate but I'm really liking this Rose Oil line, so I'm glad too! And I hope you find something that works! The struggle is SO real in finding the right products!

@CurlySophie

You should! Target has an EXCELLENT return policy, so even if you end up not liking it (which I doubt, unless you have a sensitive nose), you can always return it! *Granted you haven't used half the bottle :laughing6

However, wonderfully enough, a little DOES go a long way. I was skeptical when I was first told this (my curls are ALWAYS parched, and even the most 'moisturizing' of conditioners have failed me). But I used maybe 2 small palmfuls total (FAR less than my usual ) and got some really soft, light and bouncy curls. And a smell that got me SO many compliments!


@CandySparkles

You should try it! It really is amazing, and as I stated above, it's a really awesome collection! I haven't tried the gel yet because my Target doesn't carry it in-store, but I am eager to test it out! The shampoo DOES have suds, but is sulfate-free. Thought I should add that fact too. Personally, I love the bubbles (I just don't feel like it's clean without em'!) so I always enjoy sulfate-free cleansers that suds up, but I know some curlies don't like it.
