Hi! Last summer my hair was rather a dull-looking mix of gray, and I decided to let my hair do its naturally crazy (3B--I think) thing. I purchased Deva products, posted like crazy, tried wearing my hair curly, eventually gave up and went back to sulphates and 'cones and really
messy, half-hearted blow-drying.
One winter day I walked into a "straightie" salon, and after months
of adding some low-lights here and there, followed by having my dome blow-dried straight, I went for a full dye job with highlights. I think I just wasn't ready to be gray yet. I am happier with color in my hair.
What I was/am not
happy with, was the blow-drying ritual. Not only is it tedious and murder on my wrists trying to get my hair straight with a giant round brush, it would never dry perfect anyway.
So, still using 'cones and sulphates, I got my nerve up again and started wearing my hair curly to work. I recently clarified, dragged out my Deva products, and am giving it another go round. There is only one thing really bothering me and I really am losing sleep over it!
Although I've been reading the boards and have seen some posts about this, I am still worried.
What exactly is/are the ingredient(s) in the DevaCurl/Care line that remove the AMODIMETHICONE and keeps it from building up on your hair? This is driving me nuts!
Anyway, I just wanted to re-introduce myself and apologize to any fellow curlies who remember me and might feel I deserted the curly community. Just had a lot of other problems going on. Let me tell ya, I was really relieved that I was still able to sign in!
Looking forward to chatting!
I think I'm a 3A/3B. Going to give CG another try.
Let a smile be your umbrella!
(don't know whom I am quoting here...)
