Good afternoon! Is it summer yet?!?! We have been passing around a cold
cooties in our house for some DAYSSSSS now. What is it about summer that makes you feel like you just can’t get sick?!
So, surely everyone has heard of DevaCurl? I was sooooooo happy to be provided with the opportunity to try these products free in exchange for my honest review on my natural hair! Unfortunately, things didn’t go as I’d hoped. But, I’m curious to hear what your experience was like with these products!
DevaCurl No-Poo : I did not like the smell of this product at all. It’s strong, and a bit odd. My hair felt clean after using, but it did feel quite dry. On the plus side, it doesn’t have Sulfates, Parabens, Silicones and avoids all of the no-no stuff for natural hair, as with all of their products.
No-Poo™ Zero Lather Conditioning Cleanser is the original, bestselling, non-lathering cleanser. Our sulfate-free, highly moisturizing conditioning cleanser stimulates, hydrates, and cleans the scalp and hair to reveal the healthiest, bounciest natural curls. Join the No-Poo Movement!
DevaCurl One Condition: I hate to be a Negative Nelly, but I also did not like the smell of this either. I’m going to go ahead and say that I honestly didn’t like the smell of any of the products, with the exception of the styling cream (which we will get into in a few). I used this as a leave in and it was fine, but really didn’t do anything magical for my hair. Additionally, it didn’t soften it as much as I prefer.
One Condition will become your one and only. This rich, creamy daily conditioner delivers maximum hydration to all curl types.
I finished up my DevaCurl hair day with the Styling Cream and the Light Defining Gel. The Styling Cream didn’t smell like the others, so that was a plus. I used both together, and once my hair air-dried, boy was it DRY. It also lacked shine and it was hard. I think both are just not heavy enough to coat kinky hair. But you may possibly like it if you prefer something REALLY light!
Light Defining Gel: This light-hold, moisturizing gel molds to the hair creating a moisture-protective barrier (we call that the Curl Cast) that sets curls while preventing frizz. With your unique curl shape intact, you’re sure to make ‘em Gel-ous
Styling Cream: An award winning, rich and creamy botanically-infused styler that nourishes curls while providing hold, definition and protection from frizz
As you’re probably guessing, DevaCurl didn’t work for my hair (which is in the 4 kinky family). And, the smell didn’t tickle my fancy. It smelled somewhat natural, but there’s a common denominator in 3 out of the 4 that’s strong to my senses. With that being said, I am admittedly picky on scents, and if you’re in the 2 or 3 family, this may be a win for you!
Now on to makeup…..
I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of confessing my love for Colourpop! The price point is fire, the color is true to their website and it goes such a long way! People complain of the dryness but just prep your lips first…and voila!
Dr. M. is from the bolder end of the spectrum! Which I enjoy!
What’s been your experience with DevaCurl? And, what’s your Colourpop fave?
