DevaCurl Review and Giveaway

Botanically infused and always 100% sulfate-free!
Check out DevaConcepts

Depart from the ordinary with this exclusively designed hair care system for curly, wavy and chemically processed hair. Deva's interchangeable product line allows for individuality, simplicity and the freedom to address your hair's specific needs.

"Americans are addicted to lather" says the tress-obsessed curly girl Lorraine Massey, author of the must have book, Curly Girl (Workman Publishing,2001). Massey warns, "laundering curly hair (which is what most people are doing with ordinary detergent shampoos) just about guarantees a mass of over-dry, frizzy, shapeless locks." That's why Lorraine, along with co-owner Denis daSilva, world-class chemist Ralph Zissel and Devachan's acclaimed Color Director Shari Harbinger developed the Deva product line. This unique system, with its own unique blend of botanically infused moisturizers and cleansers, will rejuvenate, restore and respect your hair's natural order without the use of harsh chemicals.
What is in the Deva System? The answer is what is NOT in the Deva System. We took the poo out of shampoo, the harsh lathering and dehydrating detergent found in most shampoos that has no inherent value in the cleansing process. We've removed all unnecessary chemicals that often play on hair's vulnerability. We added extra botanical and moisturizing ingredients that cleanse, condition and re-hydrate the hair, more than any products existing on the market today. Each product has it's own unique blend that will enhance the overall quality of dehydrated hair.

Before Pics...J wore her hair in a ponytail to school. She was not so happy to have her pic taken with it out.

DevaCurl's non-lathering, conditioning cleanser creates the ultimate healthy, bouncy curls. With its unique blend of botanically infused moisturizers, No-Poo provides maximum frizz prevention. Refreshingly scented with Peppermint and Turkish Rose.

The first time I used NO POO I used it on wet hair. I watched a DevaCurl Video on youtube that suggests on my daughters "corkscrew" hair type that you use on dry hair. It worked great on her dry hair. After smoothing through her hair we rinsed and dried a little with a paper towel. Devacurl suggests you dry with their towel or a paper towel because a regular towel will absorb too much moisture.

I have been using this product for her last couple of cleansings and also used it on my husbands hair. It made their hair amazingly soft. I love the fact that it's all natural and is sulfate free.


DevaCurl's ultra creamy, daily conditioner keeps curls shiny and manageable. With the invigorating scent of Lemon Grass.

After rinsing the NO POO and lightly paper towel drying I smoothed the ONE CONDITION through her hair. I detangled with my fingers..which was sooo easy with a generous amount of ONE CONDITION in her hair.
AnGelA lightweight, moisturizing curl defining gel for maximum frizz prevention that holds without feeling stiff or sticky.

I have never used a gel that was so lightweight and not sticky but actually worked. I smoothed AnGel through J's curls and they bounced back to pretty! It has a great hold...I even used it for her twists for a BBQ last week, they were soft and pretty but STAYED IN PLACE with no residue. 


Put an end to frizz with this 24-48 hour moisture lock for long-lasting hold. Made with shine-enhancing Beeswax and Olive Oil and scented with zesty lemon-lime.
For high frizz factor, spray on wet hair, then again on dry hair. Or spray Set It Free in the palms of your hands and scrunch on dry hair

When I first used this product I did not use it correctly. The product is awesome for revitalizing curls, it hold them in place and makes the stretchable and almost mold-able.I sprayed her hair like crazy then tried to detangle you would with a detangling spray...BAD MOM!
I then watched the video and used SET IT FREE as it was meant to be used and it's awesome!! It's almost like a hair spray because it hold the curls but instead of making the curls feel dry and sticky SET IT FREE actually softens and moisturizes the curls. It's really like NO OTHER product I have tried!!

Heaven In Hair

This deep treatment moisture remedy with botanicals from the rain forests in Brazil quenches thirsty curls with maximum hydration. Infused with Cupuacu, Murumuru and Cocoa seed butter.

I used this HEAVEN IN HAIR to deep condition J''s hair. I applied to damp hair and used a plastic cap to allow it to penetrate into her hair. She wore the cap for a couple of hours then rinsed and her hair was unbelievably soft !!! She loved the smell...she kept hitting the top of her plastic cap so that the scent would come out. It was really funny. It does smell really nice, natural and the other DEVACURL products but with a little more kick.

After Applying AnGel

Still wet

Soft curls

Here J's hair has dried, it's feeling soft and smells so nice!! Normally I have to finger curl her curls to get them to really look curly and not just frizzy. I have done NOTHING to her hair but use the above products and stick in a barrette. I didn't use a brush or comb I just de-tangled with my fingers when the ONE CONDITION was in her hair. I LOVE DevaCurl and will continue to use it on my family's curls!!
