Help with curly hair routine!

Hello fellow curly's!

I've been using DevaCurl religiously for 2-3 years now after a new hair dresser suggested it. For the most part my first day hair is awesome. Hardly any frizz, defined curls, soft to the touch, and I love it! I use No-Poo, OC (usually leave it in) and then air dry. Then, the second day my hair seems to feel dry, lifeless and frizzy.

Do I wash my hair second day? If so, what should I do? I usually skip the No-Poo and go straight for another dose of OC but my curls just don't seem the same. Maybe my Devacurl is weighing my curls down too much the second day? I can definitely feel a build up of product some times. I tried moving away from Devacurl and my hair died. It was flat and I was unimpressed so I quickly started my regime back up.

I am new to the community and I need some help!
What products work for you? If you use Devacurl what is your routine?

I have 3B curls, some 3A and fine textured hair.

    Do you know if you have hard water? I had similar issues with DevaCurl. On a whim I tried their DevaCare line (white label, orange-ish product), which has vitamin C (vitamin C is excellent for preventing hard water buildup). The difference was amazing.

    I'm not sure if I have hard water, as I live in a fairly large city. I will have to try their DevaCare line!
    Thank you!
