How often do you trim or cut your curls? From what I’ve read, curly, coily hair should be trimmed anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks. If your hair is healthy, like mine, you can go longer between cuts. My curly stylist has me visiting the salon every 12 weeks for my DevaCurl cut.

On this last visit, she coaxed my naturally wavy hair in the back into coils. She also added layered curls in the front to frame my face. Other than that, I had about an inch trimmed to remove split ends and extra weight from my hair.

While the point of this post is to share my latest curly haircut (who doesn’t love sharing their freshly cut locks?!), it is also to show you the result of salon styling products. My curly hair stylist prefers Davines products.

The Davines Group was founded in Parma, Italy in 1983. Italy was where I first experienced Europe. It will always have a special place in my heart. In fact, the plan is to go back in 2021. Anyhow, all Davines products are still formulated and produced there.

My Curly Cut

Salon products for curly hair

  1. Davines This is a Curl Moisturizing Mousse – Mousse was scrunched into my hair from the roots to the ends.
  2. Davines This is a Curl Building Serum
  3. Davines This is a Medium Hold Modeling Gel – The serum and gel were mixed and scrunched into my curls.

My hair was then diffused with a Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer until 80% dry. You can see an immediate change in my curls. Which style do you prefer? Long or short?

Here are a couple more photos to showcase the back and sides!

    It’s so refreshing to see information about dealing with curly hair. Most mainstream hair care products are made for perfectly straight hair, usually strip out oils and moisture, and that is not what curly hair needs! Thank you for your posts and suggestions for good products. Thank goodness for the internet, where we can buy anything we need, instead of being limited by where we live.

      Cynthia,

      You are quite welcome! For the longest time I wanted to have straight hair because that is all I saw advertised. I am thankful for the growing curly girl community that encourages one another to enjoy the natural locks we’ve been given. 🙂 I’ll continue to share my curly hair product suggestions and tips.

  2. Your hair looks beautiful. What salon in Charlotte did you go to? I have an appointment with Joyfully Curly in a few days to get my first Diva Cut. So excited!

      Hi Stacey,

      Thanks so much for your sweet compliment! I have heard wonderful things about Joyfully Curly. You will have to share a before and after of your DevaCut. I’d love to see! Your curls will love it. I have my curly hair cut at Sanctuary Salon and Spa in Cornelius. If you ever book a service there, let them know I sent you! 🙂 It helps me get a small discount on my curly cuts.

      Good luck with your hair cut. Stop by the blog or Instagram (@shinewithjl) and let me know how it goes.

      Jennifer Leigh
