Most Helpful Critical Review Devacurl causes extreme hair loss!
I started using devacurl products in early 2019, and from the very start the original one conditioner was in my routine. It honestly never made my hair look good but I thought this was just the adjustment period or maybe I was putting products on incorrectly or something. Within a month or so I started noticing significant hair loss. I'm talking a palm sized amount of hair in every single shower. I also noticed my hair just started looking more damaged and less curly, more frizzy. It just looked bad. Eventually I had to have it cut from bra strap length to shoulder length because my hair got so thin it was stringy and gross looking long. I had my hair cut at a Deva certified salon and they also used devacurl products on my hair. I told them about the hair loss but I thought it was hormonal. At this point I never once question that it might be devacurl, because devacurl is supposed to be the best of the best. So I kept using their products. In december 2019 I bought a replacement bottle of two products, the low poo and the light defining gel. At this point I noticed my scalp was just really itchy and it burned. After a couple weeks I noticed I was getting lots of dandruff that didn't go away with clarifying with sulfate free shampoo, and red tiny bumps on my scalp started to pop up. Then about a week ago a girl I follow on YouTube told about her experience and how devacurl products ruined her hair. She was exclusively using devacurl too and her hair looked just like mine. I realized at this point that obviously it was these products! I stopped using them immediately and washed them all out of my hair. Since removing the devacurl products my scalp feels better and looks better, but my hair is so thin you can see my scalp. Specifically mostly in the area of my hairline and around my ear/temple area. It will take probably years to repair the damage these products have done to my hair. Do yourself a favor and don't buy them and if you own them, stop using them!

Love this + now my son with the same hair type has started to use. Should have gotten the larger bottle
I read the reviews after I purchased
HL from Raleigh NC
I was so excited to try devacurl hoping it would help bring back curl to the damaged blond pieces left in my hair. I only wash my hair once a week usually so I noticed the difference after about a month using only devacurl products (shampoo/conditioner, leave in conditioner, gel). It was not good for my hair, it became even less curly and more frizzy. It caused alot of buildup as others are stating. I devolped dandruff and my scalp began to itch. I continued to use it for another month before I decided to look into it and saw others were having similar issues but much worse because they used this brands products for a longer period of time. I feel lucky I noticed a difference so quickly. Maybe it was a bad batch. But from what I've read, there is a class action lawsuit against them so I wouldn't risk it. I ended up still being in the window to return my products so I did.
Kelsi from Colorado
I promise you Deva products are horrible!!
There are many other MUCH BETTER curly brands out there! Other brands are more affordable and help nourish curly hair much more than DevaCurl!!
This conditioner (along with many other Deva products) absolutely ruined my beautiful curls. I used Deva faithfully for 2 years. It's now been almost a year since I've stopped using it and my hair is still a mess because of DevaCurl.
I love this for my fine naturally curly hair.
JC from USA
I use it as a leave in also.
Would be good if not for the overwhelming super sweet smell
Peg from Brighton CO
I would like it better if it had a floral or fruity smell. I could not find the Decadence or I would have liked that one. Smells like coconut.
Just-jelli from Arizona
I bought this, along with other devacurl products, because I had friends who were RAVING about this for their curls. I was so excited as I was blown away by their results. My first use of their system did bring my curls out (a lot of product is needed fyi) but after continuous use, my hair became very brittle and dry! I've never had this happen before. The buildup was horrible as well. I stopped using after a couple weeks but the damage was done. I tried reviving my hair (deep conditioning, masques) but whatever is in this damaged my hair permanently. Upon reading others reviews, I wasn't the only one who had this experience.
How the mighty has fallen!
3c curly person from Rhode Island
DevaCurl was my go to for years and years. I loved all the products, but something changed in late 2019... My hair started to feel straw-like, but it also started to get gummed up faster. I used this in the shower every day and only used shampoo once a week and towards the middle of 2020, I had to start shampooing 2x/week because of how much build-up would be on my hair.
I also noticed that my curls were losing their shine and bounce. I got lucky and my hair didn't start falling out in clumps, but I did notice that I was shedding more.
My hair got so gross that at one point, I resorted to using Dawn dish soap on my hair to get it completely clean.
Every so often, I'll wash and condition with something I got as a sample and I'll notice a HUGE difference in my hair. It'll be shiny, have more bounce, and my 3c curls would spiral perfectly. It's happened enough times to have me convinced that this is no longer the product I trusted for years and I now I have to say goodbye.
TERRIBLE - new formula
Allie from WA
I used this product for years and absolutely loved it. But I need to warn my other curly girls, they changed the preservative in their shampoos/conditioners, which ultimately changed the product (even though Deva claims otherwise). This product RUINED my hair. It left such a thick paste/residue in my curls, to the point that I had to go to my hair stylist and have her give me a detox treatment to get the product and the subsequent tangles out of my hair. I will never ever use this product again.
Go online and read curly girl message boards and you will see this is a real problem for a lot of ladies!! Stay away!!

Made my hair fall out
Angelica from Los Angeles, CA
Unfortunately like other reviews this conditioner made my hair fall out in clumps. Which is a real bummer. It smells alright but man I should have listened to the other reviews.
Not what it used to be
Lori from Kansas City, Missouri
I am Caucasian with 3a curls. I have been using Deva products since the beginning, when there was DevaCare and DevaCurl. For many years, my hair looked and felt great, and I got lots of compliments. Over the past few years my hair started feeling very dry, almost like straw. In the past year I started experimenting with other products, and my hair is so much healthier now, even when I'm using much cheaper products you can get at a drugstore or using products with silicone. My hair is much softer and easier to manage now. It's easier to pull it back or put it up because it's not so dry and stiff. I still have some of my Deva products left, and when I use them my hair feels dry again. I will never buy Deva again.
Curly Advocate from South Florida
I had to go to the dermatologist for help after using DevaCurl products for a year. My scalp started flaking and my coily curls started looking stretched out. Also more shedding than usual. I would never recommend to curly friends.
NEVER USE DEVACURL!!!!
Stef from Kissimmee, Florida
I used these products for over a year, and they destroyed my hair and scalp! I lost a large amount of hair, and my scalp became so sensitive I could barely brush it. When I discovered the THOUSANDS of other women who had the same problem, I immediately threw them all in the trash and switched to another curly brand. Buyers Beware!!!
Ulta really needs to loo into this and stop selling this brand!
Karissa from Denver, CO
I used DevaCurl products only for 3 years. My hair started breaking off and falling out in hand-fulls at a time. It was really devastating. My hair is so damaged. I'm not the only one. I trashed $100's of dollars in DevaCurl products because I would never donate them to a shelter to be used by other women.
I am never out if this
Sherr from FL
I use just a dime size and that's perfect. Does not weigh down my very fine hair.
DO NOT BUY
Holly from Baltimore
Do not use this product or any others from Devacurl. I stopped a year ago and my hair is still a mess. I lost well over half of it and my scalp is still recovering. Trust me and the 80,000 others who have been affected, stay away!!
Everything a girl needs in one bottle for curly hair.
Abs from California
Love the smell & texture of my hair after it has dried out. Makes my curls more define.
Do NOT use!
lore from Tx
I really thought all the negative things about devacurl were just people jumping on the bandwagon. Unfortunately it has now happened to me too. I started using this product since 2019, as a leave in as it helped with my frizz on the crown of my head. Nothing bad happened until like 4 months ago I started seeing spots where my hair was becoming very thin and could see my scalp, mind you ive always had dense, thick hair. I have stopped using it so hopefully it goes back to normal. Do not use thing garbage product , it does ruin your hair!
Nice Hydrating Conditioner for Curls
Jess from Atlanta, GA
This is a great hydrating conditioner and works well with my curly hair! I like how the conditioner locks in moisture and you can choose how much you rinse out. I've repurchased this conditioner several times and would recommend trying it. I docked 1 star for the scent. It's ok but kinda different.
Acey from Louisville, KY
This product is the holy grail for curly hair! I use it as a conditioner then rinse out. When I go to style my hair, I add a dime-sized drop to my styling products and it creates soft, touchable curls!

I love DevaCurl One Condition Original Daily Cream Conditioner!
It works to moisturize, nourish, and hydrate hair!
I love how my hair feels super soft!
Have that salon quality hair care right at home!
I received this product free for testing purposes.
Brooklyn from San Jose, Ca
I was using this for about two months, I was excited to finally getting Devacurl products. But I was sadly disappointed noticing my hair falling out more and weak curls. I found out about the law suit and sadness their products have done to people hair as well.
DON'T BUY! MAJOR HAIR LOSS AND SCALP ISSUES
Andrea from NYC
Devacurl shouldn't be sold. It has caused me extreme hair loss and made my hair EXTREMELY thin and weak when it used to be thick and strong. If you're using it now, STOP while you still have hair! I've read accounts of people losing hair after longterm use and after short term use (a couple of months). I cannot stress enough do NOT buy this.
DO NOT BUY

I used deva curl for months and it destroyed my curl pattern!!
