DevaCurl Light Defining Gel (formerly AnGEL)

Mar 21, 2009 - I really like AnGell. My 3C curls respond very well to it, but I *have* to use B'Leave-In *and* another conditioner as a leave-in with it, or I get too dry. And if I use to much, my curls get weighed down, the top of my hair goes flat and sort of ropey. I have fine textured hair with a lot of volume (more hair per square inch of head than most stylists have ever seen), and my hair is currently just brushing my shoulders wet, drying to my jawbone. I use about a tablespoon for my whole head, concentrating on the length, not the roots. It works great for me - expensive, but good!

Regis Design Line Olive Oil Conditioner

Mar 13, 2009 - I have a big, fat, fluffy head of 3C curls. This is my go-to 2x weekly fast-deep conditioner (as in 3-5 minutes), AND my leave-in. Love, love, love! It's inexpensive, it give great slip, I don't have to use a ton (my hair is just barely brushing my shoulders now, but believe me - there's a LOT of it). Combined with AnGell and B'Leave-In from DevaCurl, I get good curl formation without being weighed down or greasy.

Oct 19, 2010 - Just want to say, first - sorry for the double-review, that makes me feel silly! ;) I also wanted to note that I recently had my 2nd cut with Tammura, and I swear, it was even better than the first! I'm very happy with my hair, and get compliments on it every single day. :)

Jul 24, 2010 - I just had my first appointment with this great stylist. She has curly hair, follows a CG routine, and cuts curls dry, using the curl-by-curl method. She's familiar with both the Curly Girl method info from the book and the techniques from Tiffany Anderson's e-book. I highly recommend Tammura to anyone looking for a CG-friendly stylist in Middle Tennessee! Only the first day and haven't yet tried styling the results myself, but this is possibly the best cut I've ever had! :)

Jul 24, 2010 - I had my first cut with Tammura today. I found this shop on the Deva Concepts web site as a retailer and took a chance that this meant they would be curl friendly and made an appointment with Tammura, since their website says she's 'a genius with curls'. That's not an over-statment at all! While she's not Deva trained, Tammura is a curly girl herself, follows the CG method in caring for her own hair. After meeting and speaking at length with Loraine Massey at a hair show, she adopted the curl-by-curl dry cutting method for her curly clients, and I'm here to say that it certainly seems like the best cut I've ever had! Tammura is great, and affordable, too - highly recommend! Note: She only works one Saturday every few months, so you need to be able to make an appointment during the week with her.
