Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Gentle Cleansing Shampoo - New Formulation

Aug 18, 2011 - THE perfect shampoo for curly hair! This is my #1 favorite shampoo. The new formulation is much better than the original for me. My hair is very dense. I could not get the older version distributed through my hair. This formulation is distributed better, however. And I love the coconut smell. :) ...I use this almost every day.

Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle

Aug 18, 2011 - CIAB is one of my HG products. I love using it over Curl Junkie CoffeeCoco Curl Creme and get shiny, soft spirals with that combination. If you're trying this for the first time, be aware that it is very thin - it's not a thick, gel-like substance. It's much wetter than that. And it can have a tendency to foam/bubble a bit. But, it works beautifully; especially with CCCC, as I mentioned before. For the record, my hair is: 3a/3b, fine, dense, low porosity, and low elasticity.

Glamour Beauty Supply - Ridgewood, New Jersey, United States

Dec 15, 2010 - Joyce is Devachan certified and it shows. My curls are unbelievably thankful!!!

Glamour Beauty Supply - Ridgewood, New Jersey, United States

Oct 25, 2010 - Initially, I called Glamour Too in Waldwick, NJ because I had read here that Alison was excellent with Deva Cuts. But, when I called and talked to Nick (owner), he told me that Alison was not taking on new customers and redirected me to Joyce in his Ridgewood store/salon. He reassured me that Joyce was equally as good as Alison. I found the place (on street parking isn't great there) and went in. The salon is all the way in the back of the store and only has 2 or 3 stations. So, their main business isn't the salon - it's the retail merchandise they sell. BUT, who cares? Joyce gave me a terrific cut - one that accentuates my curls. She took the weight off the back part of the canopy which allowed the curls to return (they were dragged down by the weight of the hair back there). She knew just what to do to correct the bad cut I had experienced a couple months earlier at a crummy salon elsewhere. I highly recommend Joyce. She's Devachan certified (I have a picture with her Deva certificate - LOL!) and knows her stuff. Joyce is a keeper. It's as simple as that. :) ...Oh... and the price wasn't astronomical, either. I was afraid it might be since Ridgewood is a very well-to-do town. But, my Deva cut there was very reasonable, IMO. Plus, Joyce suggested that I come back in three months - rather than the standard 4-6 weeks I've always heard before. :)

Glamour Too - Waldwick, New Jersey, United States

Oct 07, 2010 - As of now (October 2010), Alison is not taking on new customers. When I called, Nick referred me to his other store in Ridgewood: Glamour Beauty Supply to see Joyce. I have an appointment for later this month and I'll review after I go. :)
