The DevaCurl brand is a godsend for women with curly hair. I myself have wavy, fine hair, and its products do wonders for me. I found the brand while on a quest for sulfate free shampoos and silicone free conditioners. I was so happy when I found this brand because not only is it 100% sulfate, paraben, and silicone free, but it is also cruelty free.
I initially bought small bottles of each because, like many of you I’m sure, I sometimes have bad experiences with sulfate free shampoos either weighing my hair down or drying it out. But I used up both bottles and have since bought several more of the 32 ounce sizes!
Like other sulfate free shampoos, the cream-style “no-poo” cleanser does not lather. It’s more like a conditioner consistency. But it rinses away cleanly–I never feel like there’s residue. The conditioner is also creamy and a little thicker than the cleanser. Despite that, the conditioner has a lightweight feeling once it’s on. It either absorbs well or rinses away completely because once I’ve rinsed and gotten out of the shower, my hair doesn’t feel “coated” like it does with some other conditioners.
When it’s time to style, my hair feels bouncy and clean. This duo of cleanser and condition seem to cut my hair drying in half–maybe because it doesn’t strip the natural oils in my hair? And the fragrance (which I absolutely LOVE and smells a little like candy) stays with you for most of the day. I considered trying DevaCurl’s other line of products for damaged hair (DevaCare) because my hair is, well, damaged but decided to stick with the original because it smells SO GOOD.
