    I'm so glad I found this post, I also had a terrible experience with Devachan and Ms Massey, similar situation...unhappy with a crappy outcome and an aggressive pretty much attacking response. It it is a shame that the lack of professionalism and integrity is still there. Ms Massey touts herself as some kind of curl loving evangelist but the disrespectful and arrogant way that she behaves and runs the business is pathetic and hypocritical.

    I am thinking about reporting to better business bureau as Myrna suggested.
    It would help if anyone else with similar experiences also made a report so that this unprofessional group learn their lesson.

    Hey i'd love to hear about what happened? I get the feeling this is not her first time pissing off customers....I even read that Dasilva has some sexual harassment cases against him...

    Im happy to report that after cutting a good 5-6 inches total, and slathering my hair with 3 minute miracle by aussie and shea moisture products....I have curls!!!! However I had to cut it myself since I was scared to go to a salon...so its a bit lopsided but Ill live, I wear my hair to side anyways, I plan to give my hair a couple more weeks to regroup completely and then cover the worn out blue with lavender, which I will do myself ...So fingers crossed! Its def been the roughest hair journey ever, and Ive had some bad ones....but lesson learned for sure, I even gave away my devachan products...so I am officially DEVA and DRAMA FREE.

    As these posts have piled up, it leaves me shaking my head. Let's step back: Ms. Massey saw a void, and she stepped into it. Before her, the only really well known maven for curly hair was Ouidad. I have never been to her salon, and maybe her products are not "CG friendly", but she does not have salons, stylist, training, books, and the volume of products spring up like mushrooms. I realize her cuts are not for everyone, but neither does she train people who are incompetent. Ms. Massey is in it for the money; she is probably laughing all the way to the bank. I am not saying she has not done good things for curlies; she has, and I wont take that away from her. But, you dont hear of any one walking away from a Ouidad salon with the kinds of experiences that many of us have had with "Deva stylists", who give a snip here and a snip there - $70, please - wash, if you can call it that - condition - load up on products - clip - sit us under the dryer - and almost $200 dollars later, we are walking out with hair like cotton candy or brillo pads, if y'all remember those. Like I said, I know she has done good things, but for me, the value of the approach is in her book. I could have saved a lot of money on the rest. My current stylist charge me $30 for a root touch; if she cuts a curl here and there, no charge; and a full cut and root touch will be $60. She has never argued with me about my bringing my own products, either, or charged me for a styling that I did, like one Deva stylist here did.
