Cala Renee Salon hosted Lorraine Massey, founder and co-owner of Devacurl in a talk, demo and book signing today. Lorraine appeared at only 2 Massachusetts locations, Cala Renee in Beverly, MA and Brookline Booksmith. Lucky us! She is funny, modest, gave some great tips — and check out the tights and shoes! I got 2 Curly Girl books autographed, one for me and one for one lucky winner of my upcoming giveaway; so stay tuned!
During her informal Q&A I asked her – “what did you do to your hair today?” Her answer surprised me a bit. She washed and styled the night before with her gel, and diffused. She said she left the gel “cast” on (that hard crusty feel) and slept with her hair spread back on the pillow. This morning she let it soften in the shower and scrunched out the crunch. She doesn’t use a shower cap but doesn’t let it get wet-wet; just a bit of spray. So check out her 2nd day hair. She also said she can go 3-4 days by just refreshing curls piece by piece with Devacurl One Condition and water or a mix of Mist-er Right. She doesn’t do every curl, just the ones that need it. This method is almost exactly what I do with Loma Imply and Qhemet Olive & Honey Hydrating Balm. Sweet!
