I've chatted with you gals a lot about haircare, shared my own recommendations, and taken many of yours to heart. On reader advice, I explored the DevaCurl line a bit and found it to be fairly good with my wild curls and waves, but not quite perfect. After several weeks, my hair looked lank and greasy and, unable to power through the lankness, I'd break down and wash it with a low-sulfate shampoo.
After I'd gone through this cycle for several months, the folks at WEN dropped me a line. This was another product set that Already Pretty readers with curls had recommended, and I was eager to try their cleansing conditioner. I was sent a huge bottle of the Lavender Cleansing Conditioner* and have been using it for about two months now.
And I'll level with you: Still not perfect. I exercise A LOT and also need to wet and apply product to my hair daily with my current haircut. That combination of factors means that my hair gets dirty and collects buildup. So I'm doing a low-sulfate shampoo one a week, or every two weeks. BUT! The WEN cleansing conditioner does in one step what the DevaCurl products do in two, which saves me loads of time. The WEN product makes my hair feel clean and soft, and actually helps it work better with my styling products; I've noticed that my hair gets a lot less crunchy than it used to, and I haven't changed products or amounts. And it smells heavenly!
I've got a 16 oz bottle of the Lavender Cleansing Conditioner to give away to a lucky reader!
