Devacurl gel makes my hair look nice and I have tighter curls but it also makes my hair feel very stiff, producty and dry. . . I think a lot of people who read the CG Handbook get excited and automatically want to try deva. Doesn't mean it's gonna work though. Well that is unfair. It works, it just doesn't work for me as well as other things. Live and let curl. I'm just happy you're happy with your hair, Myrna. And it's great you started a thread about the subject. I'm sure it's enlightened a lot of people and liberated them. I don't know if you've noticed but a lot of us curlies can be quite OCD about our hair regimens. . .
