Jessicurl Too Shea! Extra Moisturizing Conditioner

May 05, 2010 - The only product in my arsenal that I've relied on consistently for years. Always leaves my curls shiny, moisturized, bouncy, and frizz-free. A lot in the shower, a little as a leave-in, and my curls are as happy as they can be.

DevaCurl Low-Poo

May 05, 2010 - I can't believe how much I hated this product. After years of using Jessicurl HCC I decided to give Devacurl a try. I never should have. Low-Poo dried my hair out as much as the harshest clarifying shampoo. I can't believe how popular Devacurl products are when so many curlies find them to be so drying. Ah the power of marketing!

Dosha - Portland, Oregon, United States
Stylist:
Cable

Dec 15, 2010 - Cable is still learning and will admit so, which is awesome. He'll do exactly what I tell him to, and will try any technique I throw his way. He's happy to cut hair either wet or dry, at your request. I always get my hair cut dry. I have to say, after having let Cable trim and re-shape my growing-out pixie about 6-8 times now, I can't think of a single thing I would complain about. In fact, I even wrote a yelp review about him. Dosha, however... going to Dosha sucks. The people are snotty, the parking on Hawthorne is a nightmare, they only use Aveda products (unless you bring your own for Cable to use, which he's happy to do) and some people get nasty headaches from Aveda fragranced stuff, and just overall, it's a hoity-toity unpleasant experience. But dang, I've dealt with a lot worse for a haircut. I believe Cable charges around $35 for a cut and curly style. I find that to be extremely reasonable; I've paid 4x that for good haircuts before. So, in brief: Cable gives an excellent haircut, and his eagerness to discuss and learn more about curly haircare makes it worth it to deal with the experience of Dosha on Hawthorne. I have high hopes that he'll move on someday (or even open his own salon, perhaps), but until then... Dosha it is. Sigh.
