    I just tried these today. So far I like the conditioner a lot. It's got a bit more slip than the other versions. I'm on the fence about the No-Poo. I'm not sure it was cleansing enough for my hair, but I know my hair properties are very different from yours. I will say that they were not too heavy for my hair, which was my biggest concern.

    I'm really curious about the No Poo. I have the regular and Care versions and they make my hair feel stripped.

    here's a thought -- why doesn't deva list ALL the ingredients on their website? i always feel a company has something to hide when the don't fully disclose all the ingredients. to be honest i doubt i will purchase any of them (my hair hates the deva curl and care lines) just curious about the ingredients.

    This sums up how I am feeling as well. I'm still curious about what everyone else thinks about them though.

    It's interesting. I follow many of the DevaCurl stylists from the flagship salon in NYC and the majority of people using this actually have much looser curls than what they said the product was intended for. I hope that doesn't mean it's just another product that won't work for tight curlies. They promised that this was a product solely for kinky/coilies (not that only they can use it, but that it was designed with their hair in mind). I'm not in that category, but I'm empathetic by nature and worry for everyone :laughing9: . This could be a good thing, though. My hair isn't kinky/coily but definitely needs the extra moisture this promises. I'm looking forward to their giveaway since my wallet currently is housing only dust bunnies.

    I've never noticed that their site doesn't list all the ingredients. They don't have anything bad in them, though, because I check all labels before trying things. But that is interesting! It could just be because we all know the first 5 are what really matters, but all *should* be posted in the case of allergies and such.

    I am so interested in this line. I want to try the no-poo and one conditioner counterparts. I currently just bought a 32 oz of the regular no-poo so I'm good for a while. This gives me the opportunity to wait for reviews and save some coins cause if @JunyJu's wallet is only holding dust bunnies, I'm a contending for the gold medal in the Broke Olympics.

    Bless your soul Curlsnswirls! This was so helpful. No poo has a polyquat but it's also 7 and towards the end of the list. I'm sure other products would remove it. What the hell is Laureth -4... and why is it also in the Supercream? It's cool that they're not animal tested and clear in terms of no animal ingredients. I also love that there isn't wheat protein in the No Poo and One Condition though because I'm protein sensitive. Now, if only they could make some more protein and/or glycerin free stuff. I will consider trying the One Condition in Spring and Fall dews because of the glycerin. However, I might have to give the One Condition and No Poo from this line a chance eventually. I hope they make trial sizes of them both. I have yet to try the normal line though. -__- Ugh so many products to try and such little time and of course the college curly budget!

    I can definitely vouch that these are more moisturizing than the other two lines. IMO, they also have noticeably more slip. This is likely not something I can use regularly or long term, but I've been a bit rough on my hair lately, so it's probably enjoying the extra moisture.

    If you are protein sensitive, be aware that the hydrolyzed quinoa in these products is essentially protein. Quinoa is a protein-rich grain. Much higher in protein than wheat.

    Why not? Is it really heavy?

    I wouldn't call it heavy, but generally on the protein-moisture scale, my hair prefers heavy protein and light moisture. I'm surprised at how light it is considering how moisturizing it is, but I'm susceptible to over-conditioning.

    Even though, I had an allergic reaction to the original No Poo and One Condition... I really want to try the new line! Much to my surprise, my hair loves the new SuperCream. I had allergic reactions to almost everything made by Deva -- besides the Ultra Defining Gel. I was really surprised that this has given me consistent and great results with no allergy issues.

    I don't know if I'll buy the No Poo -- but I definitely want to try out the conditioner. I just ran out of my usual RO conditioner. The product junkie in me strikes again! ;P

    I do agree that I find it suspicious that DevaCurl is not always forthcoming with their product ingredients. It may just be me, but I'm irked that the new line is more money than the original DevaCurl or DevaCare products. I can't decide if it's more expensive due to the fact that it's new or that the products are geared towards African textured hair and or dry and coarse hair. It hasn't sat well with me. :-(

    I just tried the new no poo and one conditioner and I really like the one conditioner.

    The no poo felt really light so I wasn't sure how well it was cleaning while I massaged it on my scalp. Then when I rinsed I felt how clean my hair was, but it felt a bit dry and tangled, but not to the extent the original and care no poo make my hair feel. It also left my hair with kind of a matte feeling too it... like some residue was left behind. I kept rinsing and rinsing and finally just went on to the one conditioner.

    My hair really drank it up. It seems lighter than the original version... not as thick. At first I wasn't sure if I'd do much for me because I wasn't confident detangling with it, so I clipped my hair up, turned up the heat on the water and washed my body. I think the steam helped, because once I took my hair down my fingers slid right through tangles. My hair was SO soft. Like 30 minute deep conditioning soft. Really impressed. If this result is consistent I'm going back for the biggest bottle.

    I didn't really rinse it out as much as heavily wet my hair to apply supercream and curl maker for extra hold. Plopped with my deva towel (got it free with my purchase of supercream) and have soft, defined, frizz free curls.

    I was thinking the same. It's weird though because my hair does okay with rice protein and vegetable (Shea Moisture). I love eating quinoa but I do have to wonder what it will do to my hair lol. It might not be worth it for me in the long haul. I'd like to maybe try it one day though.

    It's not just the amount of protein that matters. The structure is also important. Wheat protein is notoriously hit or miss, just like keratin and silk amino acids seem to be the least problematic. I haven't heard any specific issues with quinoa protein, but that could be because there are relatively few products that use it (compared to other types of protein).

    That makes a lot of sense because I think it's also the protein itself and if it's left on my hair (gels/stylers are). But then again my protein issues have usually been from stylers mostly... I might have had issues with Mane and Tail too, but I can't remember exactly. That's true though because there is definitely a pattern with people that have protein issues. It could be that it's new as well. It might be worth a shot. I wonder when these new products will get to Ulta.

    It hasn't sat well with me either. They did the same thing years ago when they released the styling cream. When that was released it was initially marketed towards girls with tighter curls as well and many of those first adds also featured more women of color than their other adds at the time. I was annoyed then also. The justification that I was given was that the product was so much more concentrated than the other stylers such that a little went a long way. I accepted that, but now I am really confused as to why the new decadence version of the styling cream (also geared towards tighter curls and also heavily marketed on the site to women of african decent) needs to be $4.00 more than the original styling cream. From tutorials I have seen from those who use the original styling cream, they do not seem to need significantly less of this new cream.

    I love the DevaCurl line and I am usually really excited to try new stuff from them. I don't mind spending money on products I enjoy that are effective. But I want the extra dollars I spend to be because there is something quantitatively better about the product and not just that the company thinks it can get more from a particular demographic. I am still on the fence about trying the decadence line. I more than likely won't bother until after I see some head to head comparisons between the original line and the new line.

I am still on the fence about trying the decadence line. I more than likely won't bother until after I see some head to head comparisons between the original line and the new line.

    When it comes to curly hair, I don't think that DevaCurl is always inclusive towards women of color (especially women of African descent) in its campaign and products. I see so much inclusion of women of all different races from other brands that I don't understand why DevaCurl is so isolated for a lack of a better word. I think it's wonderful that women with different curl types and of numerous races/ethnicities can benefit from the product. However if you can prove your product can do this than why make it pricier? It's just so specific, especially when the Deva line is pretty consistently priced overall.

    I had no idea that the original Styling Cream was originally marketed to those with a tighter curl pattern. It may because my hair is extremely dense and coarse, but it did nothing for my multi-textured 3B curls. It did nothing for my frizz and gave me zero moisture, so I'm really surprised that it was designed with tighter curls in mind!

    I totally agree with you about the cost! I also don't get why the SuperCream is not available in a bigger size, either. Since there's only three products in the Decadence line, you would think that they would offer a liter or even a half liter (like the regular Styling Cream) to consumers.

    I was pretty hesitant to trying the SuperCream, but I won a free sample during a giveaway. I wasn't impressed with the regular DevaCurl products except the UDG... but the SuperCream really made my curls pop. :bunny: It's not moisturizing and holding enough for me to use by itself though. However when I use it with gel and my SM smoothie, my curls really do look great.

    It's sad because I do really appreciate what DevaCurl has done for textured hair... but their practices with this line have definitely unsettled me. I was so excited because I felt like they were finally listening to their customers, but their behavior has definitely not sat well with me as a whole. It's really disappointing because as a whole, I feel mostly positive about Deva! Even if their products have not been the best for me: they've given me so many tips, advice, ideas, etc.

    From everything that I've watched and read, it does genuinely look like a huge improvement. I was really hesitant, but the SuperCream really was a huge improvement over the regular Styling Cream for me. I've used all of the original Deva products (I even had a 32oz One Condition) so I'll definitely let you know if I try it out the new line to see how it compares. :love5:

    Someone on the wavy board has compared it to cjcccc. For me it's very different than any curl cream I've used. Very emollient but very light.
  • rbbrbb Posts: 4,094Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    thanks! that makes it easier for me. i really love cccc, especially the new formulation last year, it is a bit lighter, easier to play with.
    i wish we all lived near each other so we could just give each other samples of products, you know>? LOL however, i really do love curl junkie products so i doubt i would spend money for another product.

    Sorry in advance for the length of this post but I am so excited about this line I just have to gush lol.

    So after watching several review videos from a few of my favorite YouTube curlies I decided to give this line a try. I must say I really like this new line; l really, REALLY like it. My faith in this brand has been restored as I definitely no longer think that the price hike was motivated by the fact that they were gearing this line toward tighter curlies :mrgreen:. Every product in this new line seems to go further than its equivalent in the original line so the price difference makes sense to me.

    I tried the Super Cream first. I didn't want to like it because I was still annoyed by the price. But despite my best efforts not to I absolutely loved the results lol. My hair looked and felt so good! This product feels like nothing in my hair but it leaves my curls shiny, defined, and freakishly soft. I was pretty sure that I was not going to get second day hair because the hold is so soft but low and behold my second day hair looked great. I have since started using B'Leave In over it to get just a little more hold and have been able to get decent third day hair.

    I was still on the fence about the No Poo and the One C (especially since the only difference in the ingredients of the new one c is the addition of chufu (sp) milk and quinoa protein). However, I was sent a free sample of both when I purchased the Super Cream so I gave it a shot. All I can say is those two little ingredients make a world of difference. The No Poo is actually moisturizing! The original No Poo leaves my hair feeling almost striped. I always deep condition after a cleanse because it is so cleansing and I only ever put that stuff on my scalp, never on my hair. The new formula leaves both my hair and scalp feeling very clean but it is not at all stripping; I didn't feel like I needed to deep condition after.

    The new One C is wonderful! The slip on this stuff is amazing! I have waist length, medium density, low to normal porosity hair and I was able to fully condition and detangle my hair with just the 1.5 oz sample of conditioner I was sent. I have NEVER used so little conditioner with such great results. I go through a 32oz size of the original formula like most people go through an 8-12 oz bottle but I can see that with this formula the larger size will last a LOT longer. It also is so moisturizing that I may no longer need to purchase Heaven in Hair, I can probably just use the One C with heat for deep conditioning; we will see. The three products used in conjunction with each other is life affirming! I was already completely sold on the Super Cream but the Super Cream with the One C Decadence is so much better. Today is my first day using all three together but there is a noticeable difference in the way my hair looks today and I am pretty sure I will be able to get even better looking third day hair!

    The smell of the No Poo is an improvement, but I actually still prefer the original scent of the One C and styling cream individually. However, the new scents layer very well; the smell of the Super Cream over the new scent of the Decadence Line is really nice! All in all I am totally impressed with the improvement over the original line, a feat I didn't think possible.

    I am curious if everyone still likes the new line?

    I am using the older type of Deva products (see my siggy). I was not sure about the Supercream because my hair is fine.

    Chupie, do you consider your hair fine?

    I am still using the No Poo and the One Condition and still loving them! I am not using the Supercream anymore. After a while it started to dry my hair out. I think that it was the protein but I am not 100% sure. I also was never able to consistently get good second/third day hair from it by itself.

    Yes, I still love these products. I thought the SuperCream would be too heavy for my fine hair, but it's not. I don't use the No-Poo as much right now, but that's only because I use a silicone LI in the winter and need to stick to a cleansing conditioner that can removes cones.

    Interesting. I may try it then :) How are you using it- is it in the shower after conditioner is rinsed out?
