    When I was solely using products with glycerin my hair felt great and I did not experience splits. My attempt to move away from products with glycerin has not been successful. I have not had any issue using the Deva Curl products this summer.

    I saw that article. I'm not a scientist but it seems a little crazy. So you can't use glycerin in the summer because of dew point and humidity. And then of course people don't want to use it in the winter because of the dry air.

    Some people's hair just doesn't like glycerine. If you know your hair doesn't like glycerin then try something else. But if you have done fine with it in other products, I wouldn't shy away from it.

    Read the reviews before purchasing from Amazon. Some of the reviews said the products were not legit. Check out PandoraBeauty.com and PaylessBeauty.com to compare prices.

    Without knowing your hair it's hard to say which products will work best for your hair. You might want to try one of the samplers that has the poo, conditioner, gel and mist in it if you are unsure. If yo don't want the sampler then try the Deva Curl One.

    Been on vacation for a week, not doing my regular cowashing and drying my hair out in the hot Louisiana sun. My hair was thirsty. DCing my hair with the Heaven In Hair. This product does not get good ratings anywhere. But my tight, 4b hair loves the way it helps smooths it out. No matter how shrunken my hair is this, DC elongates my hair and allows me to detangle.

    Don't know how it will feel when I rinse but its a life saver for my major shrinkage. :yep:

    I have been using these products for nearly 30 days so I think I can give a better review on them.

    My hair is 4b, some 4a, low porosity, NL.
    I would not repurchase the No Poo. It doesn't necessarily strip my hair but it causes it to shrink up very tight to my head and I don't like that. But it does clean my scalp very well.

    I really like the Deva Curl One though as both a conditioner and a leave-in. It really softens my hair and is able to elongate the shrunken curls created by the No Poo. There may be something better for my hair but I haven't used it yet. So far this is the best. A lot of rinse out conditioners cause my scalp to itch, but this does not.

    I bought the no poo and one conditioner this evening. Got the big jug of the conditioner in case it's really good. The noo poo was almost free because I had eighteen bucks worth of points just sitting on my account.

    It was no good as a dc. I'm on the fence about it. Will try again without the overnight business because I think that is where I screwed up

    Ok, good to know. I may try DCing with it for 30 minutes like I do the rest of my DCs. I still use it as a leave-in. And use it as a cowash and leave-in until I use it up.

    Thanks! I will stick to using it for a cowash and leave-in. I think when using it as a leave-in, I'm using too much. Will keep playing around with it.
