Miss Jessie's Quick Curls

Mar 20, 2010 - This product smelled just like Murphy's wood soap...not too fond of that!

Kinky-Curly Knot Today

Mar 20, 2010 - Having tried a wide assortment of leave-in conditioners, Knot Today has become my #1. And used together with KC Curling Custard, it's about as good as it gets! I'm a 3b - fine corkscrews...it is truly effective and reliable -- and smells heavenly!

DevaCurl Set Up and Above

Mar 05, 2010 - I'm a 3b curly girl and am generally a "Deva devotee" - I use almost all of the products Deva offers with continuing satisfaction...except for this one -- it leaves my hear gummy and sticky and is the only Deva product that I not only do not love - I just HATE it to the point where I'm actually throwing it out -- a total waste of money!!

Velvet Waves - Ellicott City, Maryland, United States

Feb 24, 2015 -

I've followed the Deva methodology for years now, and the last time I had my curly shoulder-length mop cut/shaped was by Lorraine Massey herself in November 2013.  I was at the end of my rope with my hair, which is 3b/fine and suffering what seemed to have become a completely unmanageable mass of knots, tangles and breakage.  Had had trims from others in my area who touted "Deva training", but nothing ever came anything close to the magic Lorraine had worked on my hair.  Then a friend recommended Carmen at Velvet Waves and I finally got in touch and scheduled a visit, sure that the solution was going to be to cut most of it off and resign my curls to "shorties".  Carmen took the time and care to persuade me otherwise, and the cut she gave me was in the same league as that I'd had from Lorraine herself - unbelievable care, patience and attention to detail.  She also gave me some tips about how to better care for it to avoid the issues I've been having (dry-conditioning at night, etc.).  And my locks are once again recognizably mine - the reason I went natural and adopted the Deva system in the first place.  Carmen makes a connection -- it's personal, and she takes her time, so don't expect the old "in & out - next!!".  The results are worth it, and I can't recommend her highly enough!
