DevaCurl DevaCare One Condition

Oct 21, 2010 - Devacare isn't devacurl. watch out before you buy it. It's ok but heavy and not that helpful in fighting frizz. my 3b/c curls, wallet and nose like the kc line much better.

Kinky-Curly Gloss Pomade

Oct 21, 2010 - great smell, nice texture, good shine, and great for the sotc while not losing shine and definition. definitely something to keep in the purse.

Kinky-Curly Knot Today Leave-in/Detangler

Oct 21, 2010 - Never have I had to use less conditioner, but this stuff amazed by boyfriend and me. Both of us, his 4a and me 3b/c had gotten too much out. We had been using herbal essence long term relationship leave in conditioner before going cg method and needed lots of the stuff. This though just a tiny bit does it. I followed with the KCCC and WOW! Shine, defined, and soft. The price is ok given how long this will last. (I had prided myself on drug store only products--Aussie moist conditioner and the HE LI with vital care mousse. I've now upgraded to Whole Foods for my hair products. ;)

Curls on Top Hair Studio - Laguna Beach, California, United States
Stylist:
Vickie Vela

Oct 21, 2010 - My hair had always been beautiful and no problems, until this summer when I started abusing it and constantly putting it up very tightly and washing daily, which my 3b/c curls can't take. I was getting very unhappy with my hair, which was looking so dry and frizzy. I turned to the internet and found nc.com and her salon through it. I called that night and got an appointment the next morning in a just cancelled spot. I was so excited I couldn't sleep. I hadn't had any one cut my hair for 3 years as the last person chopped it evenly at the bottom and made it so short. I loved the fact that when I walked in I saw some one with curly hair! I felt so at ease with her cutting my hair. She cut the unhealthy ends off, leaving length and adding good layers but not a pyramid. The only thing I would say is, devacurl and devacare are not the same at all. I bought the devacare thinking only the scent was different, but when I couldn't recreate the cg look at home I realized it was because devacare was too heavy for my undyed, unprocessed curls. I'd buy just the sample set next time or to any one who hasn't done the deva line.
