Cleanser

zwavyzwavy Registered Users Posts: 30
Just wondering, what kind of cleanser does everyone use to get the most definition? I'm loving DevaCurl's No Poo, as it is so gentle and moisturizing to my hair, but it's so expensive I don't know if I'll be able to keep buying it.
2a/2b fine(ish) waves with low porosity and medium thickness.
Current shampoo (I switch it up a lot): Attitude Volume and Shine
Current conditioner (also switch up a lot): Attitude Volume and Shine (about to change to Giovanni for more moisture)
Gel: LA Looks Sport Gel
Cream: OGX Moroccan Curling Perfection
Leave-in: Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture
I usually mix the cream/leave-in and the gel so that I have not as strong of a hold.

    If you like no poos, I highly recommend Kiss My Face Whenever Conditioner as a much cheaper alternative.

    I also love Curl Junkie Daily Fix, but it's on the expensive side as well.

    both deva and curl junkie can be bought at aveyou.com -- they always have discounts -- i think the current ones are
    FIVE - 15% off any amount of purchase
    AYFALL25 - $25 off $100 or more (if that doesn't work, try AYWINTER25, or go to retailmenot.com for any current ones)

    shipping is flat rate, $5 for $49 and under, $1 for $50 and above.
    and, of course, curl junkie has her two sales/yr where you can stock up.

    when i used deva several years ago i used to purchase it at local beauty supply stores for a lower price. and, both these items can be bought in the 32 oz size.

    L O V E no-poos. I feel like anything that suds up just dries me out and prevents definition... Thanks!

    I just tried As I Am Co-wash and this has been the most successful no poo for me. I have great difficulty with them being too heavy. But this may just be the ticket.
