SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

May 19, 2013 - I've been using this for about a year and it works pretty well on my puffy 3C hair (though I have to use this with another product). I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and the cream causes breakouts along my hair line, forehead and neck. Unfortunately I have to stop using it.

L.A. Looks Curl Looks Gel

Jul 12, 2009 - I know I'm not supposed to use this product (I've been indoctrinated into the DevaCurl philosophy), but I always come back to this or the yellow one. I have to use it as part of my styling arsenal-1st leave in conditioner, then anti-frizz, and then this. Each product plays it's role. This one weighs down my curls without the crunchy feel. It's great.

Living Proof No Frizz Wave Shaping Curl Defining Styling Treatment for Thick to Coarse Hair

Jul 12, 2009 - I was so excited for this product that I rushed to Sephora when as soon as it became available. What a let down! I should know not to buy into the marketing hype. This product did absolutely nothing for my hair other than make it feel like straw. And for $24!

Mario Diab Salon - New York, New York, United States

Jul 12, 2009 - I started going to Carlos in 2002. He really understands curly hair and I could always count on great a haircut, but ever since he switched to Mario Diab the quality has gone downhill. My cuts have been sloppy and visibly uneven, probably because he only spends about 15-20 min cutting my very long 3C/4A hair. That includes him walking away in the middle of my cut to deal with other customers. I'm also not impressed with the salon as a whole. I think the receptionist is rude, as if she's doing me a favor for allowing me in the salon. And the lady who washed and styled my hair the last two times, while meaning well, was extremely slow (took her 40 min just to wash my hair; I timed her) and had no idea what she was doing. I was told it's because she's a trainee. After 6-7 months in a curly hair salon she should know the right why to defuse curly hair, and if my hair is too complicated, they should give me someone else. All in all, you probably will get an okay cut, but for around $130, I expect a whole lot more.

Beehive Salon Brooklyn - Brooklyn , New York, United States

Jul 12, 2009 - I had my first cut with Jeff yesterday, and all I can say is he's awesome. I have very tight curls- 3C/4A. You know, the type of hair that manages me more than I manage it. I've had more than my share of bad cuts and was more than nervous when I walked into the salon. Jeff made me feel really calm and spent time asking me what I wanted. I loved that he was cautious with the cutting and explained to me everything he was doing. All I wanted was the ends cleaned up and some shape added. Jeff delivered and then some. I kept the length and walked out with beautiful layers I didn't think would ever work. After going to Devechan/Mario Diab for the past 6 years and Ouidad for 4 years before that, I'm so glad I found Jeff. The salon is a bit out of the way for me, but Jeff really understands curly hair and has been practicing the Devechan method for about 4 yrs now. The price was great, too. $78 including tax. Compared to other curly salons, it's a bargain. I can't recommend Jeff enough.
