I actually love both. When I first went CG I read so many bad reviews on Deva products that I literally spent all this money buying what everyone recommended and I could not find anything. I finally decided to try out Deva curls and I am hooked. I love the deva curl one condition, it is so moisturizing and I use it as my leave in. My curl pattern started to change to a curlier tighter pattern after using this as my leave in conditioner. So my advice is you truly don't know unless you try it for yourself. Good luck
