I only use deva products and also go to bed withwet hair after drying with an aquis towel. My hair isn't as long as yours, but why don't you try plopping overnight? It took my hair awhile to get used to deva products and now they really work. good luck.
Hair type, thin, 3b, past my shoulders always looking for length. Use jessicurl hair cleansing cream, devacurl one c, angel, set it free, Always see a deva trained stylist for cut and Aveda Institute for color.
