        I used all four products according to instructions and both times my hair looked flat and limp and felt greasy to the touch. I returned this product as it was not a good match for my hair.

        Comments about DevaCurl Trial + Travel Kit:

        I decided to finally give these products a try. I've been a Ouidad girl for a very long time, and I was very reluctant to switch to something new. However, I've seen so many glowing reviews about Deva Curl, and I thought buying the trial/travel kit would be a good way to test the products without breaking the bank. First of all, I love the fact that after using the No Poo my hair feels super soft. Also, leaving a little bit of the conditioner in is a great way to keep the curls soft until the next wash. I was pretty skeptical about using gel (I haven't used any since I was about 13) as it tends to leave my hair crunchy and wet-looking, but I'm a total believer now. One last thing: I am VERY surprised at how long my curls last after using this system. After drying my hair after the first use, I was convinced I would have to do it all over again the next day as my curls were super soft and I didn't need to use much product. The opposite was true, however, and I went days without having to even touch my curls after getting out of bed. LOVE these products!

        Only negative: I'm not super happy with the smell. It's very pungent. I'm willing to overlook this though because of how happy I am with the overall look/feel. My curls have never looked or felt better!

        Comments about DevaCurl Trial + Travel Kit:

        I decided to give Devacurl products a try since I have heard so much about them. After much research; I went ahead and spent $50.00 at Ulta on these products. I purchased the travel kit which includes No-Poo, the one condition, light defining gel, and the Set it free spray. I also purchased a large bottle of Arc Angell.
        I tried the travel kit just yesterday, and was very impressed with the curl it added to the top portion of my hair. It took a tight curl pattern, and made it even tighter. (Please keep in mind that was using all products in the travel kit).
        These products however did not do the same to all pieces of hair on the bottom portion. I do have a lot of heat damage to the front bottom part of my hair and believe that this is the reason why.
        I will be trying it again in hopes that it delivers to the rest of my hair other than just the top, but overall give this product a 4 out of 5.I have also taken off one star because the No-Poo smells TERRIBLE! It smells a lot like a chemical straightener or perm. The conditioner smells like sunscreen.

          Comments about DevaCurl Trial + Travel Kit:

          I have used every product imaginable, particularly products designed for black natural hair. That said, this has been the best in terms of keeping my hair soft and not stripped of whatever natural moisturizers of hair. I am a natural who can't use oils, shea, aloe, and/or butters. My hair is low porosity. That said, I wash with warm water and use the OneConditioner under a plastic cap or bag. I used the trial size first. It is expensive, but it worth it considering I am a recovering product junkie who spent and wasted so much over the years that I have more than paid for a trip to India and back.

            I love this product so much! I am glad they have a travel kit so you can try it, and have my curly hair get used to the new product. The first day I actually used the Deva-Kit I fell in love!! My curls were soft but defined. I got compliments all day! The conditioner is very rich and creamy.

              Comments about DevaCurl Trial + Travel Kit:

              This product is incredible. I've tried what seems like millions of products that promise to help tame my crazy, curly hair but none worked - until I found the Deva Curl products.

              There is a particular method to using the Deva Curl products. I was skeptical and didn't think it would really matter how the products were used. I was wrong. It really makes a difference. Before you toss these products out, make sure you're using them right. I found it makes a big difference.

              As for the reviewers who complain that the cleanser doesn't lather: it isn't supposed to lather. The ingredients that make shampoo foamy just strip away oil and damage hair, and don't even have any cleansing properties. Deva Curl cleanser doesn't have these sulfates, so it is better for hair but still cleanses it. I've never felt like my hair was still dirty after using the Deva Curl line.

              Personally, I love how the products smell. I think they are fresh and not overwhelming - kind of citrusy (depending on which product you're using).

              Bottom line: this product works better than any other hair cleanser or conditioner I have found. The gel is great, too. I would use this for the rest of my life if I could afford it.

                  This does take a few tries to get used to - as you don't have a lot of soapy bubbly lather but smooth creamy conditioner. I like this for my medium curly hair. It works whether I keep my hair in it's curly state or blow it out smooth. The leave in conditioner spray and curl gel work nice and have a pleasant herbal-sweet smell.

                    Comments about DevaCurl Trial + Travel Kit:

                    I have curly, very thick hair. My hair is not oily, so I do not shampoo everyday. I had heard from other curly haired girls either via word of mouth or through reviews that they loved the Devacurl products and that it has done wonders for their curls. I eagerly bought the trial pack thinking that this might solve all my curly hair problems. The first time I used it, my curls were very curly, but my hair seemed frizzy and somewhat dry. I chalked it up to needing to put some leave in conditioner in after the next wash. The next time I washed my hair, it came out even dryer and frizzier. I tried putting leave in conditioner to help out. When that didn't work I also put some hair oil and finally ended with trying to put lotion on my hair to calm the frizzies. Even with all those products, my hair still appeared dry and frizzy. When I looked in the mirror I also noticed some red blotches appearing right below my hair line. Obviously I was alarmed that I was getting a rash from the products so my hubby and I looked at the ingredients and decided that the alcohol and other ingredients like wheat product and citrus acid were drying out my hair and creating a slight irritation on my skin. I really hoped that this was going to be my hair miracle, but I think I will stick to my old favorites Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo, Moisture Rich Conditioner, Oribe hydrating leave-in conditioner, and ABBA curl cream.

                    I am Latina and have long thick wavy hair.
                    DevaCurl did leave my curls soft but my hair felt dirty. After a few hours my scalp would feel greasy. The shampoo & conditioner does not lather at all and both smell awful.
                    The styling gel is great and actually smells good.
                    The spray did not add any shine or revitalize my curls so I do not understand its purpose.
