CurlieTop's Latest Product Reviews

DevaCurl Frizz-Free Volumizing Foam

Jul 27, 2012 - I'm a fan of Deva products. It took me a good 2 years of experimentation (with both Deva and other brands) to figure out a reliable routine, but now I'm using Deva products exclusively, with consistently great results. I usually use a thin layer of One Condition as a leave in on soaking wet hair, followed by B'Leave In and then ArcAngell on the ends, then I scrunch dry curls with the Deva towel and allow to air dry. I substitute this foam for B'Leave In when I want my hair to be more voluminous. It gives me more messy, sexy, less ringlet-y curls, but still just as defined as with the other routine. I'm a fan!

DevaCurl Flexible-Hold Hair Spray

Jun 15, 2012 - As one might expect given that the first ingredient is denatured alcohol, this makes my hair feel incredibly dry when I use it. However, as promised, it works very well in giving my style super flexible hold with otherwise CG friendly ingredients. I'll continue to use this for curly updos.

Suave Professionals Healthy Curls Anti-Frizz Cream

Jan 01, 2011 - Wow, I am surprised by the bad reviews. During the week I've used this I've seriously gotten some of the most beautiful curls ever. Shiny, moisturized, enhanced curls. Super-soaking after application and then plopping does the trick for me. The curls last into the next day, albeit with a bit of spider weby frizz.

Tami Quan

Apr 25, 2010 - I had a great experience with Tami. She is a curly girl herself and is chock full of tips on how to optimize curly hair as well as the Deva products. I am growing out a very short haircut and she gave me a fabulous Deva curly bob (cut dry of course) to help ease me through the transition. As I walked out I heard someone on the street say "Wow I love her hair"! Unfortunately the price is pretty high ($86 including tip) and I'm not a huge fan of the Deva products as they always leave my hair a little drier than usual, but it's great to know that I won't be getting a ton of silicone on my hair that will be difficult to wash off later. I also felt super pampered (I was offered a robe and tea :) and sometimes that in itself is worth it!
