A few weeks ago I returned from a trip to the west coast thinking I could pull off that Northern California living-in-the-woods look; then I realized that I seriously needed some hair therapy. I turned to Devachan Salon in Soho, which offers more than the usual haircutthe Devachan experience is an education in caring for curly hair, with its own philosophy. Lorraine Massey, author of CURLY GIRL, serves as chief philosopher/educator (sheâ€™s working on a new book as well).
Massey’s philosophy itself is kind of revolutionaryher “No-Poo” is a hair cleanser that uses no detergents, unlike regular shampoos. If you follow her regimen, your hair will stand up and thank you, I promise. Check out this interview with Ms. Massey from NaturallyCurly.com, which describes the curly hair philosophy sheâ€™s developed over years of working with (and having) curly hair. Most of Devachan’s products cost less than $15.00, a great hair find from devachansalon.com.
