Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!
I was amazed to see how defined and tame my curls were with only using this one styling product! I used it on wet hair straight out of the shower. Scrunched a bit and didn't touch my hair until it was completely dry. I was left with moisturized curls and it doesn't even feel like I have any product in. Received this product complimentary for testing purposes. All opinions are my own. Once I'm out definitely purchasing it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Perhaps too lightweight?
I have 3A/3B mixed curls with high porosity. First day, this product is great but I had to use a LOT of it to get the feel I needed. It did dry amazingly lightweight, but my second day curls were desperately dry. The good news is that the product reapplies well for second day but by third day curls, my hair was crying out for mercy. This product is best for folks with a lower porosity hair type as well as for those of us with finer hair. I received the product free to try and give my honest opinion on, so I'll be keeping it as a refresher product but have since switched back to my normal leave in.
Reviewed by 182 customers Leaves my hair feeling dry
oimv from Ohio
Love a good leave-in, and love the smell of this DevaCurl one. What I don't love is how dry it makes my hair feel, immediately after putting it in. Makes sense with the second ingredient being isopentyldiol (meant to make your hair feels smooth but also dry) - good for skin, maybe not so much for my hair
My Curls Are in Love
music4mysoul from Yacolt, Washington
I've tried a lot of leave in conditioner and this is the first one that was thick enough to combat the dryness but not greasy! My curls are soft and bouncy and I almost don't need any additional styling products to air dry.
Brought life back to my curls
Rachel from Olympia Wa
I bleached and straightened my curls for over 10 years up until my hair started falling out and thinning. My curls and curl pattern were destroyed. Deva Curl products have turned back the clock for my curls. I use the leave in condition after using the no poo and Decadence conditioner and my curls are coming back healthy with a more established pattern. My hair has stopped falling out! Truly a Miracle cream.
Left my hair extremely dry and tangled
Karebear from Charlottesville, VA
I have never used a leave-in conditioner that left my hair feeling super dry after using the product... sort of defeats the purpose. I have normally had good results with DevaCurl products, and after I ran out of my leave-in conditioner from another brand, I decided to give this one a try. It left my curls feeling very dry and tangled, no matter how much or how little product I used. Looking at the ingredients now, I have a feeling a large part of it could be the coconut oil, which actually blocks out water absorption, particularly for porous hair.
SweetDee from Washington DC
I love this stuff. This has been my go to.My hair is so hard to detangle.Now I just leave my hair twisted through the washing and air drying process. My 1st bottle is nearly gone. I had so many samples prior to biting the bullet and buying the larger product and now I'm about to buy my 2nd one. It softens. I cant say it completely detangles my 4c but it definitely helps with the process. It definitely softens. My hair is growing so much. I use castor oil amongst other items.

not moisturizing at ALL. ruined my curl pattern
A little dissatisfied
Curious from Nonya, Business
I liked the product day one. It smells good, my hair combs out nicely, and the product was a lightweight conditioner that let my curls bounce. However, the next day my hair felt extra dry. So I am disappointed in that part. It's as though the product dried my hair out more than if I hadn't used it. So it's not really worth the money for me. Probably won't buy this again. Especially reading other reviews, after I bought the product, mentioning lawsuit and hair loss.... Eek!
This product has ruined my hair
SandyG from TX
I have been using this product, as well as a few others from this brand, for a couple of years. It was working great for so long, but in the past 4-5 months, I noticed my hair started to feel extremely dry, damaged, and tangled all the time. And, my curls that used to be long, silky ringlets have completely relaxed. My hair looks like a frizzy mess now. It wasn't until I did some research that I realized that others were experiencing the same issues. Many others! Thousands!
My recommendation to anyone wanting to use this or currently using this, please Google search "DevaCurl complaints." Read and listen to what others are saying about this brand before you use this.
I'm so passionate in my belief that this brand is the source of my problems that I'm about to throw out over $200 in products from this brand. I won't re-gift it to anyone or use it. And my story is minor compared to what other users are reporting.
Great Product for curly and even wavy hair
Emlyn from RI
I bought this product for my daughter, who is mixed. She has very curly hair, not kinky, but very dry. This product works well in her hair as a daily detangler/refresher. It doesn't build up or weight her hair down. I also used it in my younger daughters hair, which is mostly straight with ringlets on the bottom. It works just as well for her. I did try it in my own hair, which is very kinky/coily with major shrinkage, and it didn't do much. I would highly recommend it for curly (loose or ringlets) or even straight/wavy hair, especially if you need hydration, but I would not suggest it for kinky hair at all as the product may be too light.
elo from California
This product drys out my hair so much and my curls don't even look like curls after using them, would not recommend this product!
I love DevaCurl!
Cassie from Noblesville, IN
I love all the DevaCurl products I've used (which is a lot)! This one is just the same. It nourishes my curls post shower while being curly girl approved! I even use it on days that I do a blowout because it leaves my hair feeling so soft without alcohols or silicones!
My Daughter loves this stuff
Beth from Thornton, Co
My Daughter loves this product for her curly hair
Absolutely love it.
Curls from Cape Coral FL
I use this as a leave in conditioner after I get out of the shower. It moisturizes my hair without weighing it down. I have very fine hair so it's tough to find products that don't make it feel heavy. This conditioner is amazing. Smells great too.
Frizzy free yet still soft curls
Nichole Lily from San Diego, CA
This leave in appears light, but it is one of the few products that moisturizers so well that I am almost completely frizz free. I have 3a to 4 a curls that are coarse and thick past my shoulders. I combine this with a bit of gel and the set it free spray as a finisher.
It's a no from me
Becca from Indiana
I started my curly hair journey with DevaCurl products, and for the most part, they're pretty amazing and worth the price. I even used the rest of the Decadence line last winter and loved it, and the kit I bought had a travel size of this leave in in it. So when I ran out of the travel size, I went to Ulta and bought the full size... only to return it after my first use. I don't know what was different about it, but it dried my hair out SO BADLY. I still use other Deva products regularly in my routine, but I don't think I'll ever try this leave in again. It was just so bad
Super leave-in for softness and styling
Varied Curl Girl from Denver Colorado
Add to lightly wet curls before applying other styling products
LOVE LOVE IT!
Shirley from Secaucus, NJ
This product made my hair so soft and it truly brought my curls BACK TO LIFE!!
Sabrina from Carmel, IN
I've never used Deva Curl products before. I saw this on several curly hair YouTube videos and gave it. I pride myself on before natural and o my using natural products. I have bleached balayage hair that is more than wavy but not super curly hair. I use the no pop method with baking soda and vinegar to wash my hair. I applied this to my hair after only squeezing out the water as soon as I got out of the shower. IT SMELLS AMAZING! I used the praying hand method in combination with scrunching. I let air dry while flipping and scrunching until my hair was about 70% dry. I used my diffuser by only circling around my hair. I did not put the diffuser on my hair. I had awesome results. My curls have NEVER been so moisturized! It's weightless. Loved it! The only down fall for me is that my neck and face started itching for the next few days - this is why I went all natural in the first place. I plan to maybe use this every other wash. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Sad to stop using it
kikid1231 from Branson, MO
I absolutely loved this product and the smell of it. It lingered in my hair between wash days and was wonderful. Unfortunately DevaCurl products were causing my hair to fall out in clumps, so I had to discontinue use since I'm not 100% sure what in them causes it.
Helps to Detangles and promotes softness
SweetDee from Washington DC
Happy with this product. First I received this as a sample size then I knew I had to buy the larger size. It helps so much when detangling my 4c hair. I still struggle but this definitely makes it easier than anything else. I use it with Castor oil hair products and my hair stays soft.
IT SUCKS ! WHAT HAPPENED?!?
JaNae from New Hope, MN
This Product is Horrific. It made my hair dry and hard. I have 3B/3C hair and it did nothing for my hair. Other Devacurl products cannot penetrate the hair shaft to do its job.
I AM a Devacurl Fanatic but, this is not it.
VivHoney from Palm Springs
This leave in conditioner not only made my hair soft and moisturized but I noticed that my hair was more curly and less wavy as it usually is. My all time favorite leave in conditioner
Awful for my 3b/c hair
Ydmorena28 from NC
I was super excited to try this product as I hear great things about this company products, but it's awful!!!! I applied it right out of the shower to my well conditioned hair and when I put this on my hair it made it HARD, my hair was no longer soft and didn't have slip. I have tried it 3 times by now but it's the same experience. My hair hates it. And when my hair is dries, it looks like I didn't put any leave in at all even thought I put as much as possible. For the price this product is not worth it!! I'll keep buying Shea Moisture instead.
Jl from Yardley pa
Great for curls that need extra in humid weather.
Not hydrating at all
Rose from Bronx, New York
I like my leave ins to hydrate my hair so that I won't have to put in oil and this one does not hydrate my hair and I feel like it barely does anything to my hair it just sits there which I didn't like. Definitely not worth the money.
