For curly or coily hair types, regular trims every 6 to 12 weeks are recommended. Personally, with my healthy hair, I can extend this interval. My go-to curly hair specialist arranges my DevaCurl cut appointments every 12 weeks, ensuring specialized care for my curls.

Celebrating My Latest DevaCurl Makeover

This post serves a dual purpose: firstly, to revel in the excitement of my latest DevaCurl cut, and secondly, to showcase the impact of high-quality salon styling products. My stylist’s choice? The exceptional Davines range for optimum curly hair results.

Davines Group: Italian Elegance in Hair Care

Founded in 1983 in Parma, Italy, the Davines Group is close to my heart, echoing memories of my initial European escapade. I’m eagerly planning a return trip to Italy in 2021. All their products, essential for a perfect DevaCurl cut, are still expertly crafted in Italy.

    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.

      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
