Your curls will thank you later!

January 16, 2020

Last week I shared on Instagram that I may have found a new concoction that makes my curls POP! If you’re following me on IG then you know that I have been a Deva Curl Stan since last February when I started my Curly Girl Method (CMG) journey. Once I made the announcement that I was using their products to make my curls pop a few of you asked if I could share a more affordable version of products and I think I may have finally found some that work! (literally took me a full year to figure out!)

Venita Aspen

So there is one product from Deva Curl that I just couldn’t leave out and its the Deva Curl One Condition Decadence Conditioner. I haven’t been able to find anything that conditions my hair the way this product does! Here is what I use in order + steps!

Curly Girl Method

  1. Deva Curl One Condition – while in the shower I let this product sit in my hair for about 10 mins then I finger detangle my hair then rinse out the product. I DO NOT TOWEL DRY, I drip dry.
  2. Biosilk Silk Therapy – I apply one full squeeze of this all over my hair making sure that I focus on my ends.
  3. Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream – I apply about 2-3 index finger scoops of this product all over my hair, making sure that it is worked into my hair before applying our next product.
  4. Aunt Jackies Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Gel – last but not least something to hold these curls together. I only apply one index finger scoop all over the hair as a finisher.

Sometimes I skip step three, sometimes I don’t, it just depends on how I’m feeling that day. I don’t towel dry my hair because my favorite stylist at Deva Curl told me that my hair needs as much moister as I can give it and drip drying will help in that process. After I apply all of the products on wet hair, I wrap my hair in the towel to keep it out of my face while I get ready. My hair is still pretty damp once I take the towel down. I shake off any excess water, then its time to go!

I’ll have an IGTV video rolling out soon on this whole process. I just wanted to share this product break down first so when that time comes we can do it together 😉
