    I love it. The first time I was a litttls skeptical because I didn't use it correctly: you have to take the time to work it through your hair. It works. Cleans and conditions my scalp, I use it every other wash day. :)

        Buildup Purging Technology

        By Widdy

        from MD

        Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

        I love this stuff. I wish it could replace shampoo completely. It detangles almost just as well as conditioner, and it makes my curl pattern look amazing. My thick curly hair must have been super clogged up.

          I use a no-poo shampoo and have for years, and occasionally need to use a clarifying cleanser to thoroughly cleanse scalp, but do not like using regular shampoo. This product works perfectly. I use it several times a month.

                          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.
