Got my first Deva Cut! And found my HG!

I am so excited, I LOVE my cut! It is exactly what I wanted! When my old (and extremely thick) bangs grow all the way out the angle will look better, right now the short hair in front looks a little funny on the angled bob. but I am SO happy!!! I have attached one before and a few after pics.

I also decided to try the Deva Styling Cream, even though I haven't liked any of the Deva products in the past and have found them incredibly overpriced. It completely coiled up my curls. Unbelievable! I went from a 2c to a solid 3a with it! I am truly shocked and amazed as I normally only use Curl Junkie products.

happy me, happy curls!

    In the two pics where I'm in the blue tank the stylist did it. She used the deva volume foam and then the styling cream. Later I sampled both and really didn't like the foam, sticky and hard, and liked the cream. In the other post-cut pics it was styled by me with some CJ Curl Fix as a leave in, two pumps of the Deva cream, and some Curl Queen. Then to SOTC I used either CJ hibiscus banana honey butta or smoothing lotion (I go back and forth). I just apply it all at once and all over, nothing special. The formula is thick and almost sticky which I think is why it clumps an holds so well, then ends up silky, the crunch is all from the CQ. I've even used the deva to SOTC so I know it dries soft. I've been doing it for a week now and has looked great every time. I guess it's time I open up to Massey's products
