I'm planning to go to Devachan for the first time next week.
my hair is very odd and seems to break when i use any products containing silicone.
i've looked at some of the Devacurl products and notice that they do have something that looks like some kind of silicone (i can't remember what it is at the moment).
does anyone know what that 'cone' ingredient is in there and whether i should be worried about it?
Hi. I'm going to Julie. I'm seeing her because they said she and Kyoko are the only two who can cut hair to be worn both curly and straight - and Julie had time when I could go.
I'm nervous, too - but so many people on this site love that place that I keep thinking it has to be good, don't you think?
I would most definitely let them use their products on you. It's part of the whole experience and they can show you exactly how to use them, how much, etc. I wouldn't dream of going there and not letting them use their products on me, but then again I'm a huge fan of most of their products. There are so many of us on here that use them without any build-up issues from One C, because the amodimethicone is further down on the list. I wash with either Suave Tropical Coconut conditioner, Devacurl No-Poo, or Low-Poo and have been using One C for almost 3 years without any problems. Of course there are some curlies who have had problems with it, so it doesn't work for everyone. Definitely let them do their magic on you with their products when you're there though.
I would encourage you to let them use the Devachan products. Almost nobody here reports having a problem with the smallish amounts of silicones in their products. And the stylists might have trouble getting your hair to look right if they are using unfamiliar products.
Those are good points. thanks.
i realize that my breakage was most likely caused by using products containing silicone and then blow drying my hair straight - which i obviously won't be doing this time. at least i hope that's what caused the breakage. i still don't really know why my hair breaks from silicone when that doesn't seem to happen to anyone else.
i agree - but i used to blow dry my hair straight regularly with no breakage at all unless someone put silicone on it. sounds like it was the combination - but i still don't know why it happened to me and not anyone else. very strange.
