    I don't like using heat tools anymore because I'm trying to get my hair super healthy.
    I've used this product a few times now (I only wash my hair once a week) & it brings my curls alive again. I use the deva curl styling cream afterwards and let it air dry. Gives me great volume and my curls are beautiful!
    It smells great Also

      I have used the Deva Curl line for a decade now and after just 1 use, this has definitely been added to my permanent rotation! I don't buy No Poo any longer and haven't for a while - just One Condition. But this is a must. I cannot believe how revived my curls look after using this. It really is amazing. I say just try it. Everyone's hair is different, but this really does give them their BOUNCE BACK!

      Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

      There is definitely a learning curve for using this product! I have fine, healthy, 3A/3B curls, with an oily scalp. I was kind of suprised how moisterizing it is for a clarifying shampoo. I was able to comb my long hair without any tangles post-shampoo. I did have to alter my styling product routine, as the Devacurl coconut styling (after shampooing with this product) left my hair a greasy mess. When I started using a lighter stlying lotion I was impressed with the increased volume of my curls. Like I said, it took some time, but I ended up really liking this shampoo! In my opinion one can use this more than once a week, especially those with oiler hair and scalp (like me).

        I have only used this product a few times but it already has my curls looking so much bouncier! I have gotten so many compliments on how nice my curls are looking and it made my hair so shiny and it feels amazing! (Plus it smells like a nice bubble bath.) I would 100% repurchase this product.

          I've been wanting to try this product since it came out! I'm still trying to master the DevaCurl routine, and this product does exactly what it says it will do! I use this once a week, between weekly shampoos with DevaCurl No-Poo. It leaves my hair feeling clean and gunk free without drying out my curls. Love it!

              Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

              I was excited to try this, but unfortunately it left my hair feeling greasy and dirty. I followed the directions and tried it on multiple occasions, but the results were always the same- super greasy roots and just an overall dirty feeling. I tried using more product, I tried using less, and always ended up with the same result. Other people seem to love this so maybe it is just my hair type. I have color treated, thick, naturally wavy hair.

                    I use this when I can tell my hair is getting product buildup. I have been searching for a buildup remover that does not dry out my curly hair and I have found it in this product. May not work for everyone, but it does work well for my hair.

                        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.
