Does this product work on Coarse, Thick, Curly Hair?
My hair texture is very coarse & thick. It's very hard to manage. My Grandmother is full blood Indian. I'm mostly plagued by Frizz, Dryness, & Curl Management. I've been using the Quidad Curl Moisturizing Line, w/fairly decent results on the dryness, but not too hot on the Frizz & Curl definition.

on One Condition
Yes - but you need to commit to the no-sulfate, no-silicones lifestyle (and then know what to do if you slip up and use them again!)

That's more or less what it's designed for. It has really made a difference with my frizz and curl management, but I use it in combination with a sulfate-free shampoo and Deva Ultra Defining Gel. If you aren't sure, get the 3 oz. size or the Trial + Travel Kit and see what you think. For what it's worth, my hair is very thick, pretty coarse, and I have battled frizz my whole life. I switched from Ouidad to Deva because I find that their sulfate-free, silicone-free products just work better in my hair.
I too have thick, coarse, curly hair (think Shakira). I read great reviews about this product but personally, it didn't work for me. It wasn't particularly moisturizing or smoothing or anything. The one product I love and use over and over is the Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel. Put a generous amount into wet hair and let it air dry (coat the hair really well) - it provides curly definition and moisture and softness but still looks completely natural.

I recommend it highly for your hair. You will find your hair less frizzy and nicely moisturizer without weighting it down with sticky heavy products.

you might want to do a deep condition at least once a week, and I would go shampoo free!

yes! I, myself, do not have course thick hair like you mentioned but I did extensive research on this line before buying it and if you go on their website it, there is a link for you to see what type of hair you have, and they categorize it and then it recommends hair products for your hair type. I can tell you from personal experience that these products help soooo much with curl definition, my curls have never been so bouncy and defined, I LOVE IT. and it also helps with frizz! (:

I tried the Ouidad line, but it dried out my curls and made my frizz worse. Plus, the smell was unpleasant and my hair was crunchy.
I have very thick, coarse, curly hair with low to medium porosity. Of all the curl lines available on the market, the Deva products work the best for me. They add moisture and definition without weighing down my hair or making it feel greasy.
My hair is also very coarse and frizzy. I also tried Ouidad for years, and still ended up reverting back to straight-ironing. Then I found a Deva Chan salon. They showed me how to use their products and warned me that it would take some time to revitalize my damaged curls. I gave them my faith and went for it. It took all of 4 months, tops, to go from HATING my hair to LOVING it and being proud of it. Not once in my LIFE have I loved my curls. I do now. I'm a DevaCurl Girl for LIFE. I would, however, suggest that you buy their book - I think it's called Curly Girl or something like that. It will walk you through the steps of how to use the products. One VERY important step - use a micro-fiber towel, or a 100% cotton t-shirt to scrunch-dry your hair. If you follow the steps and use the products, I think you're going to realize how gorgeous your hair really is.
