  • I'm having rare 2nd day hair with Got2B Spiked-Up Max Control Gel. I don't like using it by itself, I'd rather mix it with a light gel. Yesterday I mixed it with Beautiful Curls Shea Butter Curl Defining Gel which I stupidly thought was protein-fr…
  • The Salon on Jett Ferry in Dunwoody, Georgia (United States) I live in Atl near that place. Melissa did my last Deva cut, it is great. They have 2 Deva stylists there. There is one recent negative review but they should've just come back and had …
  • Have you tried Sally's Biolage knockoff, it's not very expensive http://www.sallybeauty.com/conditioning-balm/SBS-264074,default,pd.htm Out of the handful of rinse-outs I've tried, it (and the expensive brand name version) has the most slip. Rig…
  • Watch a couple of episodes of Tabatha's Salon Takeover and you will never be intimidated by a hair stylist ever again XD. It's their job to treat you with courtesy and give you a cut that is suited to what you want. If they are rude you walk out and…
  • I am having the same problem. I had been using KCCC & it just hasn't been cutting it this season. I haven't gotten the hang of making homemade FSG that works well, so I'm looking for a gel I can buy from a store. Any gel with protein makes my ha…
  • If your ends are really dry compared to the rest of your hair I would just get a trim. You can also try sealing your ends with a bit of oil or hair butter after you style. I like olive oil.
  • Yeah when I started CG my hair looked wet all the time. I don't remember exactly when it stopped feeling ick, but it was after months. My scalp didn't like cowashing-only so I sulfate-pooed sometimes. Now I can wash and go without any stylers, which…
  • There might also be other ingredients in the poo that your hair doesn't like. Many sulfate-free poos also contain non-water-soluble silicones and proteins. If you have a protein sensitivity using a protein-loaded poo regularly will turn your hair in…
  • That's great that Biotera is working. My hair hates Biotera Even w/ coarse hair I find I need a small amount of PT occasionally or my hair goes limp & starts shedding excessively. After a year of CG my hair didn't need nearly as much conditioni…

  • Thank you for the suggestions. I think the culprit may be fragrance since my face has a history of breaking into a rash from strongly-scented products. Not all the time but it's a crapshoot with me too. I will look into the OO castile soap and De…
  • I love Aubrey Organics B5 Gel, it's never gone crunchy on me..it's light/medium hold but it might work depending on your hair's temperament. For my hair (coarse, loose waves) the less hold the better, go figure. It's my fave gel but I don't get it o…
  • Naturelle Hypoallergenic Gel + GVP Conditioning Balm or Giovanni Direct Leave-In My hair looks best when it's mixed with the GVP but I can't do it too often or it will get overconditioned, so I alternate it with the Giovanni leave-in. Still tr…
  • It's a little different. I believe it is under the Naturelle brand now. Naturelle Hypo-Allergenic Styling Gel water, polyquarternium-4, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, arnica montana flower extract, cananga odorata (ylang ylang) flower oil, citru…

  • It's their job to style your hair the way you want it. Sometimes stylists who have been working a long time are the most stubborn about doing it their way. This one stylist I tried once wouldn't give me a short cut because she said it would poof out…
  • It makes my waves really stringy no matter how small the quantity I use. I plan on experimenting with it some more but as of now, I don't really like it & am still looking for my HG gel.
  • Nah, the idea of a hair style needing one specific style of clothing to match it sounds kind of nuts to me...Now I love makeup but don't think it's necessary just because of short hair. A good short hairstyle is really feminine because it brings out…
  • Yes, my last hair cut was a Deva cut. The stylist did a really good job - I haven't had it cut/trimmed since so it's been a few months and it still looks pretty decent.
  • I don't think the survey really speaks for most men. I wonder if the survey included guys from all ethnic/cultural backgrounds because some cultures really just aren't used to seeing curlies. Even if people had certain preferences, it's usually not …
  • When I have these types of conversations with friends/family it usually goes like this: Relative/Friend: We can't go out today. It's raining, and my hair will curl. Me: I'm sure it won't look that bad. R/F: No, you don't understand! My hair is …
  • I was recently asked, "Did you curl your hair, or is that just what happens when it's wet?" LOL
  • My hair seems to hate oils too. I've done olive oil & coconut oil deep treatments that seem to work for many, but just turns my hair into messy undefined fluff. I do like AOHR which has oils, because I like the smell, but if I use it on any sort…

  • Yes, one of the hairstylists I like has very similar hair to mine. I've never seen her wear it natural though, it's either somewhat tamed into weighed-down waves or bone straight. It actually looks really shiny straight, turns out she uses a really …
  • Maybe it's just good hair genes I've had frizzy poofiness since I was a baby.

  • Yeah I have a friend who has naturally curly hair which I have never seen because she straightens it every day. It actually doesn't look too fried because she takes care of it with various products. She won't go out in light rain or anything like th…
  • Just an update..i love my devacut :headbang: I started a fotki so I have one badly taken pic from last weekend. It doesn't show my hair much so just try to ignore my face: http://public.fotki.com/insanihair/ password: insan1ha1r I don't ha…
  • I get dry scalp too. There can be many reasons for this, like - product buildup - you should massage your co-wash into the scalp to get at the gunk, then leave it on for several minutes before rinsing (a shower cap would be useful for this) - …
