Rated 4.33 out of 5 stars
I'm no stranger to hearing about DevaCurl, as the brand has come up several times on social media for various different reasons. When I found out I was selected to try out this brand in exchange for my honest thoughts, I wanted to give them a legitimate try - leaving any prior biases aside. For reference, I have very thick 2c hair. I love the natural waviness to my hair, but haven't really tried products catered to such hair to embrace them. This product was right up my alley - cruelty free, vegan, clean ingredients, and sustainable packaging. I like that this is a multipurpose product - there's so many different uses you can utilize from this spray. The scent of the formula is light, but a nice coconut scent. After showering, I made sure to shake the bottle thoroughly to ensure the ingredients were mixed well. Then, I evenly distributed the spray throughout my wet hair. The detangling aspect of this product does well. As noted, my hair is extremely thick and I'm no stranger to having to endure tangles. This product helped eliminate most of the hassle I normally would encounter. My arms were thankful - if you know, you know. After detangling, I put a light spray throughout my hair, and form waves by using a scrunching motion. I try to stray away from using heat on my hair (although this product does serve as a heat protectant up to 450 degrees) so I allow it to air dry. And let me tell you - my hair looks great! No frizz. My hair looks healthy. Those waves are waving. I'm shook. I look forward to continually using this in my haircare routine. Since using, I have not encountered any hair breakage or thinning of hair.
Today I tried out the DevaCurl Mist of Wonders hair product. Now, I wouldn't say my hair is curly…it COULD AND SHOULD BE, but most of the time it's limp and/or frizzy. This is because I am the mother of twins and have no time to do anything about it, let alone care. I am also incredibly lazy when it comes to hair care. I wash it and that's it. But there are those magical days when the planets align and yes, my hair does hold soft curls. And when that happens I feel so pretty! So when Influenster sent me this product to try, I thought, "Easy enough. Not too many steps and it's just a spray!" So after my shower I began my trial. The first thing I did was read the directions. They were simple, if not vague. It said hold 6-8 inches away and spray on wet or damp hair, then style as usual. Most people I think would understand this, but I had questions. How much is too much? Do I avoid the roots or scalp? Do I scrunch afterward? So I applied what I thought was a good amount and then I scrunched, just for good measure. I didn't directly spray on the top of my head, but the mist does have a large radius so I'm sure some got in there. It also mentions detangling, and I wasn't sure if I was supposed to brush before I spray or after. I brushed before, then worked my fingers through after I sprayed. The only downside so far was the greasy feeling it left on my fingers. I hoped my hair wouldn't be greasy, because I have things to do tomorrow. On another note, I would like to mention that the smell is really nice! I HATE coconut, but this smells like coconut and…summer. It's a comforting scent and i was surprised I enjoyed it. After applying I just let my hair dry naturally like I usually do. The next morning I awoke hoping to see curls, or at least waves, but alas…nothing. It did make my hair smell good and feel soft, if not a little greasy. I was not thrilled with the results but I could see how this might work for people with REALLY curly hair. But it doesn't work for wavy or mildly curly hair.

I sprayed it on my hair and it made a mess! I tried to step in the shower to contain the mess, but still a mess! Then I had an idea, spray it into my hands to distribute evenly in my hair and then use a wide tooth comb to finish! No more mess!

I don't like the spray mechanism. The spray continues after I stopped pressing it and it ended up everywhere. Not sure if it actually did anything for my hair

3A-3B hair type. I bought this on a whim as it was on sale. I loved it while it worked, then something happened to the sprayer and now it won't come out and just congeals on the end. I think I can put it into another bottle, which I hope will salvage this.
Regarding the product, I usually use "It's a 10" but wanted to try this since it was on sale. Great switch in my opinion. This smells great and makes my hair extra soft without weighing down my curls. It was also detangling. I would recommend this product, just not so sure about the packaging.

I could tell an immediate difference in my hair after one use. A must have for those trying to restore or protect their curls.

The product itself seems great. Has a stronger scent but I don't mind it. But the spray mechanism could use some work. It doesn't do the continuous spray I think it was meant to have and kind of dribbles out sometimes.

This is an interesting product - it's a misting leave in conditioner but does more than just that. I like the smell and the spray technology it has.

This product is in the middle for me. The few times I was able to use it, I think it worked pretty well. I got the same results I usually get from a leave-in conditioner. It smells good and leaves my hair soft. By holy cow, the packaging is a complete nightmare to use. Ergonomically it's way too large and really hard to handle. Had such difficulty spraying it that I stopped using it after a few tries. As a person with fine hair, I couldn't control how much product was coming out. Streamline the packaging and then you have a good product.

The DevaCurl Mist of Wonders leave in is amazing ! I have naturally curly hair and the humidity in Fl causes my hair to frizz. When using this product the frizz is gone. I love it !

My daughter has thick wavy curly hair, and I'm always looking for products to help hold her shape without frizz. This leave in didn't work well for her. We tried it with other products first and thought it was okay, but then tried it without gel and mousse and realized it made her hair feel pretty icky, like you could tell there was product in it , almost heavy and dirty. It smells really great and I like the "locking" device on the packaging that does not allow the handle to be engaged to avoid accidental sprays.

I took a shower and sprayed this in my hair. It smelled so good to begin with. I lightly scrunched my hair and as it began to dry I had beautiful, wavy hair!

The leave-in must of wonders is amazing to apply as a top coat to the Deva Curl Leave-in Decadence, it gives that final lock-in power to neutralize the frizz that seems to stay when only using Leave-in Decadence & to top it all off I finish the look w Deva Curl High Shine

I love this product! The packaging is nice and it applies really nicely. The product looks huge too! I am happy to use this weekly now. I would recommend this product.

Oddly enough my hair was more tangled after use than it normally is. I also assumed it would be a consistent misting but it wasn't. It felt clunky to use.

I actually really loved this product. Works great in my hair and also my toddlers curls. I like the smell a lot, not greasy or heavy in my hair. I don't think I have the right texture but still enjoying it.

I received this product for free from Influenster in exchange for my honest review. The product has more of a foam like texture than mist, but I just rub the product in to make sure it's evenly distributed. I think it gives me hair hydration and helps with the forming of the curl.
Unfortunately, I don't really like the smell of this product. The DevaCurl cream I have has a coconuty smell which I love. This product however smells artificial, and I can't help but get reminded of the smell of cleaning supplies. I would give this product 5 stars if it reformulates the smell and changes to something more natural.

I bet this could potentially be an awesome product but personally I cannot stand the fake coconut tropical smell. I can't do a lotion or none of that lol.

This was a cool product to try. I did like the continuous spray option which I haven't seen on a leave in conditioner so that me great. I wasn't wow-ed but I'd try it again.
nehak6f51 from undisclosed
I like this has so much benefits for my hair and now I don't need to use so many products on my hair. I like how it smells and really like the packaging and spray. I use this on my damp hair and my hair feels soft after styling them.

I was surprised the effect of this product. It instantly give moisture to my hair. I often used it to detangle my hair. This has a scent and the scent is not my favorite. I got this for free from influenster for testibg.purposes.

I received these devacurl products to test out and review, but i don't have curly hair. i gave them to a friends though and she has been absolutely raving about it! she said she would recommend to any curly hairs ladies! and she would definitely repurchase!

I am obsessed with this product. A little goes a long way and it will last me forever. It works great to leave my hair curly, but also leaves my hair super sleek and shiny if I blow dry and straighten. I have very fine hair, so I spray the product in my hand and since the fine mister would distribute too much for my hair. I'd definitely purchase this one!

I recently started using this leave in conditioner and this has exceeded my expectations to be honest. I love that this spray packaging allows me to be able to spread the product faster throughout my hair. Leaves my hair with such a beautiful and healthy glow. Helps me to keep my curls moisturized and holds them for a longer time. I love that the product doesn't feel too heavy on my hair.

The texture of the product is very slick, and as soon as I sprayed it into my hands I knew it was a little different from other products. It's thick, so it doesn't come out as a spray but a stream. I have 2A waves in thick hair with a lot of dryness and frizz. The leave in conditioner is a great product for my hair type! I let it air dry and it set my hair with a little bit more defined wave, less frizz, and a great coconut smell. My only concern would be that it could be too heavy for anyone that doesn't have thicker hair like I do. I received as a free sample from influenster but would repurchase this on my own.

I have fine hair with a slight wave so this product wasn't well-suited for my hair type and weighed it down. My boyfriend has coarse curls though so I had him try it and these were his thoughts: He really enjoyed the product. He usually uses another brand leave-in cream, but this one left his scalp moisturized and his hair soft for longer. His hair didn't feel as greasy and there was less mess when applying it compared to his usual brand. He thought the scent was pleasant. He would purchase the product after trying it.

Loved using this product! Everything from the texture to the smell were amazing with this mist! Super easy to use and left my hair feeling smooth and full of body!
