Default Do I need One Condition??

I just started using deva care low poo, and am pleasantly surprised that I like it. It leaves my hair feeling clean, which did not happen with no poo. I am using Jessicurl 2 shea with it, and the results are ok, but is there a glaring reason why I would like one condition better? Is it lighter or heavier than 2 shea? How does it compare to Elucence MBC or Moptop Conditioner? TIA!!!

I hated OneC. It weighed my hair down, bult up on me, and tended to make me look kinda greasy. I like TooShea a lot better. I wasn't all that fond of Elucence (didn't have enough slip for me and I didn't like the small, mainly) but I definitely liked it more than OneC. I hated the smell of OneC too. :P

One Condition is my favorite conditioner ever. Too Shea is great too, but not as good of a detangler and I don't love it as a leave-in as much as One Condition (I can just leave in OC with no styling products, and I can't do that with Too Shea). Elucence was also good but not quite as good as OC either. Also didn't detangle quite as well (but better than Too Shea) and I didn't love it as a leave-in because it sort of foamed when I would rinse a little out.

All three are still great though. I'd use and be happy with any of them. If you're having great results with Too Shea, I'd see no need to change.

One Condition is the only conditioner I have used consistently for 2 years now. I have strayed , and found my hair gets dried out from other products pretty quickly. I find that if my hair starts not needing as much conditioner--the "weighed down" effect--I either use it every other day or I dilute it a bit in warm water in a plastic cup before I pour it through my hair.

It is the only conditioner where I consistently get good reliable hair, 2nd day hair at times, shine, and smells so dang good that I get compliments at school. Love it.

I really wanted to like One C but my hair didn't like it at all. I love the smell and the feel. It is very thick and creamy. Every time I used it, I got frizzy, poofy hair. So, I just can't use it

I like OneC. I can't really compare it to TooShea, though, as I only had a sample size of the TooShea a long time ago. The A-cone in OneC does have a tendency to build up on my hair after a while.

I'd probably purchase OneC more often if I could get it locally and it didn't cost so much. After taking an inventory of the number of co in my shower today, maybe just going ahead & forking over the $$$ might be worth it to get rid of some clutter. I think I really need to stop experimenting and just stick to something.

I'm glad to hear you like the Low Poo. I don't really care for NoPoo, either. I never felt it got the a-cone from the OneC out of my hair.

I personally like OneC better than Elucence and TooShea (but have only tried the DevaCurl, not the DevaCare). Never tried MopTop. OneC and Regis Design Line Olive Oil conditioner are my two favorite conditioners.

I love One C - & I think Devacurl version is much better at moisturizing & detangling than the Devacare one. I've used it on/off for 5 years. BUT. Big caveat -- on my hair, it is awful left in. Leaves a gummy, tacky residue if I leave in more than, say, 25%. Another big but is price & lack of local access to it. Frankly, I get the same results with Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine, & the ingred's are very similar; the main diff is more amodimethicone, which gives me more frizz control than One C.

I hated OneC. It took a lot to detangle my hair and still didn't do it all that well, and it smells horrid. I also found it less moisturizing than Elucence, Mop top, and especially Too Shea.

I love OneC. I got it through a swap (thanks LizaMarz!!) and I will be buying it. I didnt realize that my other conditioners were not really getting any tangles out until I used this and felt how the tangles just go away. My hair has been much better with using OneC and Angell! Love IT!!!
