Most Helpful Positive Review OKAY.... This Might Make It Into My Regular Hair Routine!
I'm always searching for the best products for my hair. Especially moisturizing and elongating products because I have super curly/kinky hair and it is important to keep my curls moisturized, but I sometimes want them stretched out at the same time to give my hair some length. So when Deva Curl provided me with the opportunity to try the product in a box (meaning I recieved it complimentary and I didn't have to pay for it) I was so excited! It looked like this product was made for me! I've tried every week for the past 3 weeks in my hair and I've loved the results so far. It makes my hair feel amazing after applying it after a hair wash and at times I will apply it in my hair before bed and twist it up and the results are amazing. It does not eliminate any drizzling I get but it definitely minimizes it because of the hold it has after the twist outs in the morning. Also at times it can get greasy so if you don't like that this won't be the best product for you but overall it is amazing and leaves your hair looking and feeling amazing! I recommend 100% and I can see myself figuring out a way to add this product into my everyday hair routine.
Most Helpful Critical Review Extreme disappointment
I was so disappointed when I tried this product. I was extremely excited to try a product meant to elongate my curls and also hydrate them. I have 4C hair, soak of moisture and shrinkage are not a stranger to me. Usually when I wash my hair, which is once a week, I put a leave-in conditioner, hair butter, Argan oil, castor oil, and Shea butter. After that, I twist my hair so that it's curly, wear it twisted for about 4 days and then untwist it so that it's big and curly. I thought maybe this product would help with how long for my hair seemed after pulling it out of its twists and also hydrate my hair so that it gave it softness and shine. Sadly, none of those things happened. My hair felt like straw and it was slightly hard. I felt like the Super Stretch Curl Elongator just sat on my hair. After pulling our the twists, my hair did not look stretched, it instead looked how it usually looked. I was so disappointed because I've heard such good things about Devacurl! Pro tip: unless you're a 3c, this product IS NOT for you. It is definitely not made with type 4 hair in mind :(

Finally found something that does wonders for my hair!!!! I have 3c hair and this is the best thing that's happened to my hair. I've been using all the devacurl products for about 3 months now and my hair keeps getting better!!! You have learn how to use the products and it'll work wonders for your hair. The bottles tells you exactly how to use them. Best thing I've tried. I'm finally embracing my coily curls!!!

Use on damp, not wet hair for superb definition.
My girls can't live without this.
Jenniferg77 from Fresno
I would never use this in my wavy curly fine hair. It would be a heavy, greasy mess. Two of my four daughters have very tight coiled curly hair that shrinks up and looks much shorter than it actually is. They like that this weighs down and relaxes the curl pattern and makes their hair look longer. It's so expensive, and we go through it too fast. The day I find a cheaper dupe will be the end of me purchasing this product, but until then...
Too much protein
Eliza from NY, NY
Used it as a sample liked it, got the full size. Used it for another week and it was all down hill after that. My 2c3a hair was dry, brittle, and coarse. My curls were usually soft and larger clumps, this made my curls stringy, frizzy and they had no shine. I realized after I did a deep conditioning .y hair was super soft and the minute I put this stuff it was like straw. Washed it out and deep conditioned again. Will be returning this product.
I use this mixed with wave maker and scrunch
Rae81 from Oregon
I have a more coarse wavy hair that can be curly with right product and allowing it to air dry or diffusing. Frizz is my main enemy and I have tried hundreds of products and methods of application over the years. I had a small trial size of this product that I had never considered using as I rarely wish to elongate my curls, rather enhance them. However, I found myself out of options and thought why not? I mixed this half and half with deva wavemaker and applied in shower to soaking wet hair as I always do. To my surprise this did nothing to elongate (though again I scrunch) but it greatly reduced frizz and defined my curls much better than the wavemaker alone. I have now used it for a week on a daily basis and am very happy with this combination of products.
This works better for frizz than curl cream in my opinion.
Great styling product!
Super Curly from New Jersey
Great for those with curly to super curly/coily hair types that crave moisture, elongation, and soft to the touch definition. DevaCurl products certainly work best as a system and I do use the whole range. If you're new to DevaCurl, I would recommend talking to a Product Pro. DevaCurl works a bit differently and it's nice to get some knowledge about how their products work before purchasing! I have 3C/4A thick porous hair that is naturally drier due to the tight curl and trends to be a bit dull. When I use the Super Stretch and finish with the High Shine Oil, the results are perfect! Shine, definition, and LASTING moisture with zero crunch. Personally, I only like using the two products together. I won't get the results I want using only the super stretch. It will look good alone, but won't have as much shine and the moisture retention is greatly reduced without the High Shine Oil. However, if you have low or normal porosity, you may find you prefer the Super Stretch used alone! Worth a try!!
Returned to store
Cheri from Michigan
Like all of Deva Curl stylers, I had high hopes for this one. But not only did it leave my hair dry and frizzy, my curls didn't have any additional elongation using the product. Would not recommend.

I was so hopeful. Oh well. The search continues...
Love this stuff!
Jen from Salt Lake, UT
I wash my hair in the morning, twice a week, and I put this in my hair after cleaning and conditioning. I typically let it air-dry, as I value my sleep more than how I look. And blow-drying takes time - BUT! I have diffused my hair a few times after using this product, and I LOVE the way my hair looks. I love that it can both elongate my curls (air-dry, after smoothing down my curls instead of crunching up) AND make my curls curlier after diffusing. As with most other Diva Curl products, I love how this smells. And I love that it defines my curls, but doesn't stiffen/make crunchy like a gel or moose. I really feel like this product gives my curls what they need - moisture! I used to have to wash every day, since my curls got super frizzy after sleeping. But, with Diva Curl, I can go 3-4 days without washing.
Did nothing for me
Curlz from Vegas
This product smells great but I was curious if it would be to heavy for my hair with its consistency. Once my hair dried the shrinkage was still there and my curls had no bounce.
I would purchase this product again.
Pearl from Georgia
My curls are 3C curls. I could see a difference. However I put Bantu knots in my hair so my curls were not as stretched. I like the clean fragrance.
Absolutely the best softening control for super curly hair.

Yes, I would purchase this product again

My hair is natural, this product works great on it.
Amazing for Type 4 Hair!
Melanie from New Jersey
I am so very pleased with this product. Okay 4B curlies, please do give this a try! My hair has never felt so moisturized and been so soft and shiny. May not have as much hold as my gels, but it's worth it. My hair is getting moisturized from the inside out with this product. I bought it with my own money, so you can be assured I'm not biased. Give it a try!
I have been using this product for several years

Perfectly stretches out my curls. I love this product.

I use this daily and it controls my curls PERFECTLY! I have 3C curls
Misha from Louisiana
My stylist used this product after my last DevaCut and I loved the results. I purchased it on my own and it came out just as good as when she used it. The key is to make sure your hair is wet when applying the product, I make sure I have a spray bottle near.
Not for me
Mariel from Subs of Detroit, MI
So, I'll start out by disclosing I do not have the specific curl pattern this is aimed towards. (I am a 2c after 11 YEARS of the Keratin treatment, but before the Keratin I was a 3b). Clearly, I loathe my natural hair texture so was seeking something to "elongate" my curls but this just caused my hair to be excessively dry, tangled and emphasized my split ends. I am now forced to get a hair cut (not trim) to address the breakage this product caused.
Great for twist outs!
Kat from 07087
I've tried several different hair creams to attempt pretty twist outs. This product is my favorite so far, leaves my hair moisturized and 2x elongated as the previous brands that I've used. Just wished it was more affordable or contain more product. It lasted a little over a month, while being used once a month.

issa no for me
CONTESSA from DFW, TX
I bought this expensive cream after watching a million YouTube videos of natural women stating it was a life changer and how their wash and does were so stretched and defined. Well ABSOLUTEY NONE OF THAT HAPPENED FOR ME. I have 3c/4a hair and when I applied the cream it didn't define not 1 curl and it just sat on top of my hair. I kept rubbing it in and pulling my hair in downwards as the instructions state and about an hour layer my hair shrunk so much even more than when I use cheaper products to do my wash and go. I am so disappointed and will be returning asap this is my 1st devacurl purchase and will probably be my last, its OVER HYPED & OVER PRICED
I love Devacurls but this one not for my hair.

Should have looked at video or went to a Devacurl Salon.
AJ from COLUMBIA SC
THIS CREAM IS AMAZING. I HAVE NEVER SEEN MY CURLS POP THEY WAY THEY DO. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! < 3 < 3
Left curls dry and frizzy.
Alanna C. from Greater San Diego Area
I love love love DevaCurl and like most of us curly haired humans, love to nourish my hair and invest in the products to do so.... I was so excited for a product that would help me achieve longer, but defined curls! Unfortunately, after 5 uses (yes on wet (not damp) hair) this product left my hair dried out and frizzy. :( I have 3b/c curls and the length didn't really change much compared to SuperCream. My curls just didn't take. Hope others get a better experience. :)
