So, I'm both a curly girl and a hairstylist, and I recently talked my boss into carrying the Deva Curl line at our salon. Our product rep recently brought testers of all the Deva Curl products for us to try before we committed to actually purchasing the entire line for the salon. I took the samples home to try out myself, but I would also love some feedback from all of you on which products work best on which types of curls, as well as product combinations that you either love or hate. Anything to give myself and my coworkers a starting point from which to work.
Curl type 3a, coarse, low porosity, high density, and extremely frizz-prone. Color-treated, but with ammonia-free, professional color. Also trying to grow it out.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Deva line, to be honest. Too much glycerin dries my hair out, and the products don't smell very nice. I say this product is used best in moderate climates only. The only product I loved when I used it was the DevaCurl One Condition. I had chemically dyed hair at the time, so once the Deva Curl products were used up I used the Deva Care line - didn't like that line nearly as well. The low poo was awful, it left my hair frizzy all the time. Deva Care is supposed to be for color treated hair, and Deva Curl for regular hair.

    I wouldn't say there are certain hair types that it works better for. It's a good starting point for curlies until they find better products. That's how I look at Deva Curl. Sorry Lorraine.

    By the way, I have very dense coarse hair, and high porosity at the time I used it.
