I was actually able to find a stylist recommended on the site who only charges $40. (She has trained with LM, but is not actually a Deva stylist.) I live in OK, though, which has a pretty low cost of living.

I've also found that when my hair is longer, I don't need to cut it as often.

Most of my experimenting so far has been with drugstore and healthfood store products.
