First DevaCut!

Hi, all!

I’m headed in for my first ever DevaCut next week, and I’m a little nervous. I’ve seen and heard great things, so I am also excited and I want to go in and get shaped up with plenty of time to let my hair grow out before my maternity pictures in a few months in case my new stylist doesn’t work out. My concern is that I’m so new to the CG method that if I let my hair air dry without product, I’m worried my wave pattern won’t show. I have a mix of 2a/2b (getting closer to more 2b lately), but before I started the method my hair would be wavy only until it finished drying. I plan to test my next wash day to see if there has been any improvement, but in case there hasn’t, I’m looking for some reassurance. 

Any other wavies have a similar experience? Was the stylist still able to uncover your curl potential?

BONUS: any ladies in the KC area that can comment on Salon Halo??

    Do you use gel? That tends to hold the pattern while dry. I like your username.

    @BrittanyM thank you!

    I use DC Arc Angel after both Shea Moisture Curl Custard and Soufflé. I’ve been trying to get all the hold I can while my hair adapts back to its natural pattern. I figured “natural state” meant product free. Think I can get away with the gel?

    I consider my hair unaltered by heat or a perm to be my natural state. There's no shame in product usage. Curly hair needs hydration so conditioner is always a must. Why not styling products too.

    @themrs007 How did your DevaCut go??

    @Drpjfitz really well! We did some highlights too because the jet black in my hair was just too harsh. Waves seem more defined, but idk if it’s the cut, the highlights creating more depth, or that I’ve officially hit 1 month on CG.

    Here’s the “after.” Waves definitely start higher than before!
