After hearing much talk about the infamous Devacurl collection, I was able to try it out for myself, thanks to Samantha !
In addition to some of the top Deva products, I received both the Original and the Decadence line. For the style above, and it being dry & winter season in New York City, I opted for the super moisturizing Decadence. As soon as I used the No-Poo Decadence/Zero Lather Ultra Moisturizing Milk Cleanser, I was already sold. I'm always sketchy about shampoo for fear of drying out my curls; the no-poo formula gently cleanses any residue while chufa milk and quinoa protein increases moisture and nourishment for your hair. I followed with the One Condition Decadence/Ultra Moisturizing Milk Conditioner, a rich & creamy formula perfect as conditioning detangler and styler...so much so that I used it as both !
Lately, I've been loving gels for my wash-and-go because I find that my styles last much longer (+1 week). My naturals know the weekly routines of having to wash, detangle, and lather our curls in products ! For those concerned about what are in the DevaCurl bottles, all DevaCurl products are 100% sulfate, paraben and silicone free and vegan. Ingredients include chamomile & oils such as rosemary and grapesed to help soothe and infuse your scalp with vitamin E, which is necessary for overall hair growth and health. I've written a quick how-to because I'm so in love with the products and my results. Let me know your experiences with DevaCurl !
-On freshly washed hair using Decadence collection, section in two parts (top and bottom).
-Spritz more water and apply generous amount of One Condition as styler to first section.
-Detangle and distribute the product by using wide tooth comb or tangle teezer.
-Finish by raking the Ultra Defining Gel from roots to tip with fingers and evenly distributing it by brushing again; for more definition or tame your frizzy areas, finger coil !
Tip: For more volume, air dry for 30 minutes then diffuse until fully dry!
