    <333 You're so sweet. Thank you!

    I think we all have a problem with thinking our hair looks bad when others may not agree. I'm going to try harder not to put myself down and to try and see the good in every hair day. We curlies need to stop being so hard on ourselves!

    Side note: come on girls, let's keep this thread going! It's great seeing everyone's transformations and how they achieve second-day / third-day hair etc. :D

    Immediately after removing pineapple; followed by water, tiny bit of gel, and diffusing. In person it looks like a frizzy poof. Help!

    I had a hiccup last night and tried some Deva products again, and my hair was HOOORRRIIIBBLLLEEE. So I didn't even bother. Ended up re-washing again this morning, and I'll try again tonight if I don't end up putting my hair up for my night job.

    Thank you dear!

    Unfortunately my curl pattern seems to change with every wash, so I can never really predict how it will look once dried and it's even more of a toss-up after I sleep on it.

    Lately I have been managing to get some 3-day hair though :glasses2:

    I've never tried the Deva line before and never really been curious to since they seem so love / hate! And also expensive (and I'm cheap :P).

    When you do get a chance to try it out do show us pictures! I'm going to give it a go soon I think, because sometimes my pineapple stretches out my back curls :/

    PINEAPPLE FAIL.

    But as promised, I have pictures. Good lord, I'm glad I can laugh myself. Don't mind my faces, I was tired, grumpy, and disgusted at my hair. It completely straightened one part on the left side of my head. Did I do this wrong? I put 2 on top. Should I try more?

    From L to R: what's left of my pineapples, after taking it out, & styled. 2nd day hair on a very windy day when my hood had to be worn.

    Deva products are not bad, I just don't think they are good in the winter due to the high amount of glycerin. DC One Condition is like my all-time favorite, but YTB is super similar and much cheaper.

    ETA: D'oh! I just remembered you are in the UK, so you aren't having as harsh of a winter as we are here.
