I use Deva Blonde versio of One C as a leave-in. Mix it with Abba Nourishing and a few pumps of KBB hairmilk. I scrunch our excess water with a curls like us towel, then apply a gel.

i loved one c! I loved the smell, the texture, the way it felt in my hair, everything!! But since i was CG, and it has the a-cone, it eventually built up,and the no poo wasn't removing the a cone, and then it got kinda ugly... i bought the low poo to use to remove the a-cone, but DevaCurl now has reformulated the one c to REMOVE the a-cone! YAY! HOWEVER, i started using the AOHR and that is pretty good.

But when i did use it, i used it along with the whole line- no poo, one c, had no luck with Angell so used KCCC, and sprayed SIF when necessary. One c smells sooo good and it feels sooooooooooo goooooooooooddd.

My stylist uses less then a pea size as a LI on soaking wet hair then they add the Gel and SIF. I don't think you want to be too heavy handed with it.

I've used it as a leave-in with no problems. I hated B'leaveIn. Just use a little bit as it is a tad heavy. I also only use it with only Deva. The line seems to work better together.

Just before all this Deva bruhaha happened, I had rediscovered Deva Curl One Condition and was using it as a conditioner some days and as a leave-in on others. I adored it as a leave-in! I used about a quarter size blob on my shoulder-length hair and it was perfect. I won't be buying the new formula, though, so I have no idea how it might work. The consistency was so creamy, it was great. I didn't use it every day, though, so I didn't notice any build-up.

And yes, Burgundy_Locks, it does smell SOOOOOOOO good! (But again, that's the old one.)
