I just finished diffusing my hair and I still have a gel cast, but LOOK AT THIS!!!! The definition! The volume! Wowza!
The only thing I did differently was I decided to do a proper squish to condish.

Some before and after a here!! This makes me sooo happy! Her hair was sooo happy too! She had no idea her hairs potential. She goes to sleep with wet hair and braids it. So I recommended embracing her natural waves! Low maintenance hair styling! #devatransformation#devacurl
First photo: my MVP everyday hair products: @moptophair Leave-in conditioner and Curly Hair Custard. I apply them with wet hands (kind of a #smasters for non-wash day)
Second photo: While my hair is refreshed, I am going on a road trip today and will be spending a significant amount of time in the heat. So, I'm going to pull my hair back with one of my @snappeeinc hair ties. It goes on like a normal hair elastic, but rather than yank it out when the day is through, you unsnap it and reduce breakage.
These are my own comments, and I receive no compensation for them. I'm just a happy customer :)
This excites me! It excites me to help my curly girls finally embrace their hair after a lifetime of fighting it! Fighting the frizz and just thinking their hair was big and unruly and to help them embrace their hair. She had no idea the potential her hair had until I showed her the Deva way. Her hair looked super Thick and coarse but once I got my hands on it I was amazed at her soft gorgeous shine and could see the potential it had! At the end of the day And for each client in my chair my goal is for them all to LOVE their hair and meet all their needs! She was wowed! 💕#devacurl#devatransformation
Sometimes in life you need to press that refresh button. I’m passionate about helping people, connecting & impacting lives. But let me tell you something the best thing about working with people is people... but there’s a flip side because the worse thing about working with people is people. Never lose yourself or act out of character. Sometimes you need to “Wooooooosssaaaaaa” and press that refresh button and go about your day knowing you are blessed & highly favored
Character building moments mold you. All the experiences good, bad or indifferent molded me into the woman I am today. Cheers to her! Because honey child!!!!! 😏
Remember it’s always you VS you. It’s never you versus the world or you versus another person. You do not need someone to tell you that YOU HAVE IT IN YOU. It’s ALL IN YOU
Despite whatever hurdle that you are going through just know character building moments MOLD you. I use the term character building because I never claim a “bad day” or “bad moment”. I say I had a character building moment.. time to push that REFRESH button and continue my day. All the “L’s” you think you took just leveled you up. .
You have purpose. You are destined for greatness. You are YOU and that’s your power. #positivevibes#positivethinking
LOC? LCO? LCEG? LEG? What does it all mean?
These are acronyms for the order curly girls apply their styling products. L is for liquid or leave-in conditioner. C is for cream. O is oil. E is enhancer (curl enhancer). G is gel.
I use the LCEG method myself, and these are the products I currently use:
L: @moptophair Leave-in Conditioner. I apply it using the "seaweed hair" technique. Leave-in helps moisturize and prime your hair for the rest of your styling products.
C: @cantubeauty Curl Activator Cream to define my curls. I only need a pea-sized amount of this for my thick hair.
E: @moptophair Curly Hair Custard to clump my curls together and give them a little extra "oomph"
G: @devacurl Arc AnGel to hold it all together. I smooth and scrunch it into soaking wet hair. I only need two small handfuls.
Can’t nobody stop your glow up. I’ve been through a lot and I’m proud of the person I am & I’m becoming. My heart is in the right place. It’s OK to love people from a distance. What others say & do is a projection of their own reality so don’t let it affect your reality. .
Keep in touch but out of reach the phrase “separation is needed for elevation” is the TRUTH. Don’t take anything personally, even when a situation seems so personal. Everyone is living their life and going through things no one knows about. Never feel bad about doing what’s best for you
Continue Glowing & Growing ✨
