Replacing DevaCurl

Rachel5150Rachel5150 Posts: 15Registered Users
I use DevaCurl DevaCare no poo and one condition and style with DC volumizing foam, beleave in, curl cream, and ultra defining gel (a mix of two or three at a time). They're pretty good for my hair but its starting to get too expensive for me. Anyone have any suggestions? I want to stick to the same basic ingredients-or lack thereof-but cheaper. Its taken over a year to get my hair healthy again and I'm scared to try new products in it. Plus I'm a recovering product junkie so I wanna be sure before making a purchase. Please help!

    Another side of the equation which you might find helpful to look at is that developing your skills at getting multi-day hair decreases the cost of your styling products by half for each day beyond the first that you get.

    The Yes To.. conditioner line is similar to the One Condition. Personally, I think it's a bit better. :) And definitely cheaper! I like the YTB the best.

    Not sure on replacements for the others though. The Deva styling products left my hair kind of gunky. Although, I just switched to KCCC and absolutely love it for my gel! No gunky feeling here.
