I had read the book Curly Girl years ago and followed the protocol to "shampoo" with only conditioner, then got out of the habit. This product brought me back to the fold. My curly hair is dry and living in the desert doesn't help that. No-poo leaves my hair and scalp feeling clean, even after a work out without feeling stripped of it's natural oils.
Do you no poo?
I started using this product set last year, and now my whole family uses it. Three of us have wavy hair, and my son has big ringlets. It leaves my hair clean without drying it out. It works great for my son's fine toddler hair without weighing it down. The only caveat is that we have to make sure to scrub the scalp, or we get dry skin built up. Would recommend to a friend.
A Curly/wavy hair dream product
My wavy to curly hair needs this conditioning shampoo. This plus the One-Condition Conditioner helps tame the frizz without making my hair heavy or greasy. It smells nice too, not overly smelly or floral, just a nice soft smell. Plus, if I am vacationing, just the shampoo is great because it's very conditioning and then I use a spray conditioner/protecter or coconut oil. Love it!
I was skeptical at first, but this was super awesome on my hair!!! Didn't dry it out, was very hydrating and my scalp wasn't flakey! definitely plan on buying this
Great for Curly Hair
Cleans my hair without drying it out (it's sulfate-free!) Works great for me in the summer when it's humid, but in the winter it leaves my hair a little limp so I need to use extra product to keep it volumized. I think it smells wonderful, as does the conditioner.
Very Good Product for my Curls!
Bought the full size after using the Birchbox sample. I have to wash my curly hair every day unless I blow it out straight and this product was gentle on my hair and scalp. The scent is not my favorite, but it's not so strong that it bothered me throughout the day.
Okay for occasional use.
I bought this product after my stylist recommended it.
I'd tried shampooing with baking soda for a very mild case of seborrheic dermatitis. Baking soda was great for cleaning my scalp, but it dried my hair too much and left it brittle.
So, I tried this shampoo (or "no-poo"). I was impressed the first time I used it. It cleaned my scalp as well as baking soda (perhaps better), but left my hair feeling nice and soft.
With repeated use, I was less impressed. It still cleans my scalp well, but I wasn't as happy with how limp my hair was. Sure, it's frizz-free, but -- for me, anyway -- the curl isn't as bouncy as it had been.
I went back to using my regular shampoos, including professional products, but they didn't clean my scalp well enough.
So, my new shampoo routine includes DevaCurl No-Poo once a week -- to get my scalp nice and clean -- and more moisturizing products in-between, to keep my hair shiny, bouncy, and super-wavy.
I've been following this routine for a few weeks now, and I'm pleased with the results.
In my opinion, DevaCurl No-Poo is the answer if you need to deep-clean your scalp without harsh chemicals that can dry your hair. However, you may need to alternate it with a conditioning shampoo to maintain your curls if your hair is especially porous and dry.
Hair felt dirty after washing twice
I received this as a sample and I hated it. Maybe it's for people who normally wash their hair daily so that's why people love it, but there's no way I can do that. Also I have colored hair so there is no way I am about to start washing daily. I washed my hair with this, rinsed, washed again, rinsed, washed again and rinsed. When I was doing my hair after, the pieces in the middle felt greasy and the rest of my hair felt dry. I ended up washing again with my normal shampoo. I would never buy nor recommend this product.
Didn't like it
I gave this shampoo a try. I didn't like the fact that it doesn't lather. Felt like my hair wasn't clean. Also didn't notice any improvement in the frizz.
The only shampoo for curly hair
This is the best performing shampoo for any one with curly hair! It reduces almost all the frizz and leaves my hair silky soft (but not greasy).
