If any of y'all are like me, having curly hair has been a struggle. I live in a very humid region and always have frizz. It's frustrating to have curly hair sometimes because you don't brush it when it's dry or run fingers through it... you can only pet it.
Being a high school girl, I resorted to straightening my hair everyday, which absolutely ruined my hair for a while. After that phase, I tried all kinds of musses and creams and gels and nothing seemed to work. I just wore my hair up every day and felt really insecure because even in a ponytail, sprigs of frizz popped out on the side of my head.
It wasn't until I had my hair cut at a professional salon that I heard about DevaCurl.
DevaCurl is specifically for curly haired girls and really works. The reason my hair was so frizzy, and the same is true for most curly-q's, is that our hair follicle is easily damaged when using lathering shampoo. DevaCurl is non-lathering and doesn't contain a lot of harmful stuff like sulfates and parabens. At first I didn't like the non-lathering shampoo thing, but once I was used to it I really enjoyed it. DevaCurl smells like eucalyptus and I love it! It uses eucalyptus to moisturize curls, because curls also dry out significantly faster than other hair types.
I use both the no-poo and conditioner and have noticed a drastic change in my frizz. My ponytails don't have any sprigs, my curls are moisturized and healthy, making them look so cute! Part of the journey was accepting my curly hair and finally thinking of it as beautiful, but being able to shift my focus away from frizz insecurities helped the process.
I would recommend DevaCurl to any curly-haired babe in a heartbeat. It is more expensive than drug store brands, but worth it.
From my experience, the AnGel is the best styling gel that DevaCurl has, but I haven't experimented that much. Regardless, my curls are happy and healthy and frizz-free!
