Devacurl vs Devacare

I had an allergic reaction to Devacare, either the Onecondition or Low Poo, as I have been able to use the Ultra Defining Gel with no problems. I really like how curly the products made my hair, and I've tried alternatives, but nothing seems to curl it quite as well. I was thinking of trying the DevaCARE no poo & Onecondition instead. How do these products compare to the Devacurl line? Thanks in advance!

    My opinion would be if you had an allergic reaction to the CURL version, you will have the same reaction with the CARE line. Some people complain of this with Deva products. I personally use the DevaCARE low poo but have no allergy problems at all. I wouldn't risk it- the formulas are very similar, but some of the ingredients are in different orders. Here are the ingredients lists for the low poos.

    DevaCURL low poo:
    Water (Aqua, Eau), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Coco-Betaine, PEG-75 Lanolin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Polyquaternium-7, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Cymbopogon Sc

    DevaCARE low poo:
    Water (Aqua,Eau), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Coco-Betaine, Polyquaternium-7, PEG-75 Lanolin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Citrus Aurentium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Extract, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Cymbopogon Sch
    2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
    Cleanse: AIA cowash, TJ Tea Tree Condish
    Condish: JC Too Shea, Tresemme Botanique
    Stylers: flax/okra gel or KCCC + CJ PP or JC Spiralicious
    Experimenting with Got2B Ultra gel and loving it so far!
