DevaCurl - didn't work for me
I always appreciate and depend on people's reviews, so I thought it only fair to write my review! A friend visited recently and her curls looked amazing. She swears by DevaCurl. Being a sucker for 'the grass is always greener' I decided to try it. I bought the travel size kit so that it wasn't such an investment. I started with the No Poo and One Conditioner and then the Angell and Set It Free for styling.
I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week and by Day 3 my scalp was really greasy and my curls were so tangled - it looked literally like a nest. I felt like my hair was fluffy, if that makes any sense. My curls were super fine instead of clumps of curls.
I eliminated the No Poo, which helped with the greasies but still felt like the products didn't do anything to make my hair not frizz and end up in a tangly mess by day 3.
So, back to the old faithfuls! For me, that is HairOne, Giovanni Smooth as Silk (or their leave in), EcoStyler and Ion Spray Gel. And soooo much cheaper.
I did like the Mist-er Right for 2nd day hair.
