I’ll be honest, the first I used DevaCurl Products... I hated the results. I reluctantly decided to give them another try, but this time with a salon specializing in DevaCuts & Curls. There I learned why my first attempt had gone so wrong, and then taught me how to best use DevaCurl while styling my hair. After leaving the salon I knew my hair regime was about to change! I LOVED MY HAIR! It felt clean, and light but still had amazing definition.
After leaving the salon, I was able to wear my hair down for the week following! I only need slight touch-ups each morning and my hair was good to go! I had never experienced this with other natural products that are sulfate free.
I’ve fallen down the DevaCurl rabbit hole, and have found myself surrounded by products! I believe to find the right hair routine it takes a lot of trial and error with various products. However with DevaCurl, you really only NEED 2 products but I PREFER to use 4 to prefect my wash-n-go. The 2 products I recommend everyone have are the Conditioner & the styling Gel.
DevaCurl products come in three different types for different curl textures and porosity. “Porosity is the hair’s ability to absorb and retain water and water-soluble products.” Aka, hair porosity refers to how easily your hair absorbs moisture. There are different porosity levels, and this can affect which products you choose to style your hair. *list decadence, etc*Depending on the texture, and porosity of your hair you should pick which level you belong in. I have extremely thick, type 3b/c hair and use decadence level products. And for all my type 4s, starting to feel weary; fear not, I have seen photos of these products working in your texture as well!
To apply these products, have a wet and clean head. I don’t mean damp, I mean wet! Fun fact, DevaCurl products are activated by water! So this mean the more water you use, the better they work; keep that spray bottle handy. First, section of your head and apply conditioner. I won’t dare say a dime-size because my natural girls know better! Apply the conditioner generously, and don’t forget the water. Next, the styling the gel. Apply the gel to each section generously; and scrunch your hair up after you apply the product.
These are really the only two products you must have. However, I also wash my hair with their NoPoo Shampoo, because it’s sulfate free and soft on my hair. I also have found my hair reacts better to products when I have consistency of brand. I use, the styling spray at the end of my process for added hold, and definition. I recommend you diffuse or blow dry you hair for the best results.
