New to CG?
 
I just started doing CG about three weeks ago and am using DevaCurl products (no poo, one condition and light defining gel) as well as Aveda Be Curly with wheat protein. I've noticed my hair has had a lot more definition but my ends are strands are dirty unless I use a ton of no poo. After my shower my hair is very dry, except my roots which by the end of the day VERY greasy.

I'm switching products once I'm finished with theses ones. Can I have some recommendations about what I may be doing wrong and what products I should try? I have 3a thick hair. I'd like something that can give me the same definition as a gel but still makes my hair soft!

Can you stand it another week? Your hair should be settling down soon once it realizes its moisturized enough and doesn't need to produce so much oil. My understanding is that it's around 4 weeks.

Also if you're using low poo, and it doesn't settle down after another week, maybe try low-poo if you otherwise like Deva. :-)

I switched conditioners and that has been helping with the dryness and the greasiness a ton. My curls are still lacking definition though. The top part lies flat by at least mid day. Should I use a stronger gel??
