      Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

      I wanted to love this product because it is devacurl. However, just no. It did not take away ANY buildup whatsoever and made my hair EXTREMELY greasy. Like the minute I got out of the shower it was greasy. I would never buy this again. You also have to use alot of it since it does not lather. Waste of money. For reference I have easy to manage long, curly hair.

      Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

      I tried the other devacurl products no poo and the conditioner which absolutely dried out my hair it was horrible. So I was a bit on the fence to try this. It sat in my closet about a month before I used and I'm sorry I waited so long because this got out all the hair products and kept my hair so moist and soft. I live the smell. I conditioned with my Redken conditioner after. My hair looked great until wash day! Will def buy again

          Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

          The first time I used it it made my baby hairs a lot more curly. The smell is great and last after drying. I think this is great for all hair types to help keep the hair and scalp free from build up I definitely want to keep using this. I use a lot of dry shampoo and this really cleaned my scalp and got rid of the buildup. I am reviewing this as part of Influensters contest but that doesn't sway my review of five stars

          Comments about DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum:

          I love this product. I received it about a year ago to try, and I am still using it weekly to this day. It doesn't lather, but it works very well at removing built up product from the roots of my hair due to my overuse of dry shampoo lol. What can I say...I love volume!! This helps keep the natural and necessary oils in my hair without it being greasy and Im still able to go 2-3 days in between washes. It makes my hair feel healthy and clean.

            Loved this product!!! Left my hair feeling super clean! After using my hair did NOT have a stripped waxy feeling as some shampoos or cleansers can leave!!! I have think type 4 hair and it left my curls bouncy and moisturized! Also pair this with the Deva Curl Conditioner, they work so well together and by the next wash day my hair is not super dry! A thumbs up for me!

                The Build Up Buster is great for product buildup, hard water or environmental stressors, this rejuvenating deep cleansing treatment will bring all curl types back to life. This powerful cleanser uses micellar technology to gently remove buildup from the hair and scalp without stripping away essential moisture. And it keeps greys from yellowing.

            • Q:

              I have hair that is colored pink with semi-permanent dye. I would like to clarify my hair more often, but clarifying shampoo visibly strips my color. I am looking for a product as gentle or more gentle on color than sulfate free shampoo while also removing build up. Is this the product for me?

                All DevaCurl products are color safe, but I would wait a week or two after your color to use the Build Up Buster just to be safe.

                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.
