CJ Hibiscus & Banana Honey Butta

Has anyone not liked this or gotten weird hair from it?

I used a sample pack this morning and my hair got so weird, dry and straight in some areas that I had to rewash it. My canopy was nasty, tangled, dry and had absolutely no curl whatsoever. It was the weirdest thing.

    that's strange reaction. did you use any other products with it?
    i generally us a bit of leave in, then a bit of honey butta (a little goes a loooonnngg way), then i seal it. gives me great clumps, moisture.

    I've thought about everything I used this morning. I think it was the deva curl low poo I used. I've been using curl junkie daily fix but ran out and decided to use the deva curl low poo this morning. I noticed my hair felt weird after I shampooed but thought i just needed some extra conditioning. It's like the low poo blocked the moisture.

    I came home, rinsed and slathered on some rehab. Much better. Soft as silk.

    cj rehab is great!
    i started out yrs ago using deva products, then in 2009 they changed the formulas without changing the labels. my hair reacted immediately -- was horrible, like straw. you are probably right that it was the deva low poo. glad the rehab got it back!

    The rehab is awesome. I've fallen in love with just about every curl junkie product. I've got to tell you that it's all your fault lol. I saw your gorgeous curls and read your siggy and had to try it.
