Longshot--Anybody know Ana's (@ Devachan) routine?

I would love to know how she does her hair, which of the Deva products she uses, etc...if anybody knows, can you share? Her hair is breathtaking!

I think I remember reading once that she just leaves in all her One Condition and that's it - no Angell. When I read it, though, it was before B'Leave-In and Set It Free and Devacare were around.

Thanks PixieCurl!! That really makes sense because her hair looks so soft...hmm, new experiment! Although I think my hair would not be as defined and uniform as hers is.

Well I am trying this right now (keeping the condish in and nothing else)...we'll see how it goes! It would be great if I didn't need a styler in the summer. My hair is about half way dry now and it's looking defined and pretty frizz free. I thinks it is behaving a bit more as it is getting longer.

I saw her in October and she still just uses OC and leaves it all in. She also does her hair everyday--no second day hair ever. She says she just feels cleaner that way. She doesn't care that she walks around with wet hair and never times how long it takes to dry. A very it is what it is attitude.
She's awesome!

ETA: This does work great in the summer--I did it last year. Keep in mind though, Ana's hair is really really dry--sucks in moisture. My hair felt producty doing this.

Thank you!! This will be my second day doing it, and I bet I will feel producty after the next day or so, One C does have a tendency to build up a little on me. I'll keep you all posted on how this works for my hair, if I feel brave, maybe I'll post some pics if it turns out ok in the next few days.

The only way I have ever been able to leave all my conditioner in is to NOT use anything else -- no gel, no recoil, nuttin'. If I add any styling product with lots of co left in my hair, it turns out a limp, yucky mess.

My current AV was taken after a shower one evening. I left all the OneC in my hair, plopped for a bit, and then left it alone. I later went to bed. I'm not sure how long those curls would have lasted without any gel. I'm always too chicken to try this during the day.

Frizz Happens!

Can't wait to see how it goes for you.

You have the greatest hair no matter what you use, though. <sticks tongue out>

I had good luck just leaving in OC and using no other stylers for quite a while. Started doing it on my honeymoon and it worked great in the hot, humid environment and worked well when I returned home too. For 2nd day hair, I had a little spray bottle of OC and water that worked pretty well to refresh.

I'm actually thinking I need to go back to that old routine as summer approaches... I remember actually being consistently happy with my hair and NOT constantly thinking about the next good thing to try.

I am really curious about how she avoids getting overconditioned. My hair looks fantastic when I load in the OneC ("seaweedy," Carlos called it) . . . for a few days. Then it gets desperately overconditioned, and POOF, there she is, cotton-candy head!

Another thing on the "it-is-what-it-is" approach, we all know how much better it is when our hair is well-cut. Ana probably trims her own hair as needed, so the shape is likely always perfect. I do think that a good haircut changes what kind of products (and maybe more importantly, how much product) you need.
Definitely! Makes me regret not making more time so I could get my hair cut by a Deva trained stylist when I was in Atlanta in February.

I'm pretty sure she only uses OC--to wash and to style. I don't remember her mentioning the No-Poo.
She doesn't get over conditioned and poofy because of how dry her hair is. It really needs all the moisture it can get (Lucas who used to work there also mentioned this about her hair.)
She also says it takes her about 2 or 3 months before she likes her hair cut so she doesn't bother cutting it often.

Ana told me that she wets her hair every morning (she goes to the gym) and uses Devacurl OC only to style. I am not sure, but I am almost certain that she uses No Poo to wash. I can ask her if you want. I have to go back for highlights soon.
