    Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

    Okay I don't ever write reviews but after one use this product did magic to my thin 3B curls. I only use a cleanser twice a week because I get bad build up and my curls look blah anymore the two days and then my curls are dryer than a desert. Well before his product I used redkin basic cleanser and it would strip my curls dry. After one use this product brought life to my curls they are light bouncy and VERY VERY SOFT. I followed with the deva curl conditioner and sprayed some deva curl set it free spray and man do my curls look good. Would recommend this to anyone with thin curls that need a cleanser that doesn't strip.

      Using it once a week to clear off build up so my curls are bouncier. My only complaint is the directions are printed so small on the bottle it was nearly impossible for me to read.

          Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

          while I don't dislike the cleansing aspect of this... the smell is off... like they tried to make it smell like watermelon but instead it smells like chemical paint remover. the smell lingers in my hair so... glad I only use it once in a while.

                  A:

                  You can apply Build Up Bust to your scalp. For best results using Build Up Buster, on wet hair, use the pointed tip to target the scalp. Massage all over, and work it through the mid-lengths and ends. Rinse thoroughly. Be sure to follow with a DevaCurl conditioner or treatment to seal in moisture. Use weekly or as needed to get your curl groove back.
