Dried my hair out something AWFUL!
Sampled

So i was excited to get this in my box, and was horrified by the results. I followed the directions as it said, but it didn't do anything to soften my hair, or tame these curls.. I assume this is more for people with thinner or fine curls... because on my THICK long curls, it dried them so bad. To the point where i had to take a shower all over, and do a conditioning hair mask of another brand. Anyway, if you have long, thick curly hair... this product might not be for you.. It was NOT for me.

Okay, But Not a Good Fit For my Kinky, Coily Hair Type
Sampled

I follow a co-cleanse regimen. This kit was okay, but the shampoo had a slightly chemical smell, the conditioner was thinner than I need for my thick tresses and the gel dried out my hair, even though I sealed my ends with oils. This is a kit for someone with thin hair and/or a looser curl pattern than myself, a type 4.

Deva Curl
Sampled

While I appreciate getting a sample of this in my box this month, to try it, I was disappointed in the product itself. My hair just can't be tamed, but when I do try to make an attempt to tame it I find that products with Keratin are best for my hair. As far as this product goes, I did not like that the shampoo didn't lather and the conditioner felt really intense in my hair. Then the last step is the defining gel which I hate using gel- like products so I only tried a tiny bit of this and didn't like it. Overall, I'd say its worth a try if you get a sample but I wouldn't buy it without sampling it first to see how it does on your individual hair.

This system not for me
Sampled

I did not like the shampoo as I prefer lather during my shampooing experience. I did like the conditioner as it did not weigh down my fine, wavy hair and I liked the fragrance. The gel was okay but I didnt find anything remarkable about it; I prefer other products (Miss Jessies) that I have sampled from Birchbox to this.

Alright
Sampled

This worked okay, but unfortunately I don't wear my hair curly often and only wash my hair maybe once every five days so this is kinda why it was a problem. If I wear my hair curly, it's maybe the day I wash it and that's it. I found that the gel (the VERY small amount I used) left a ton of residue on my hair that made not washing everyday impossible. If I wash my hair everyday it just doesn't do anything good for me (curly hair--imagine that--is dry). I found the scents to kind of clash with eachother as well.

Not for me
Sampled

I liked the shampoo and the conditioner but I didn't care for the gel. It made my hair frizzy and stiff.

Smelly curls
Sampled

Although the product helped with the curl in my hair the smell, to me, was unbearable

Left my hair dry and dull
Sampled

I tried using all 3 products together, and using them in various combinations with my usual shampoo/conditioner/styling product. Although the curl pattern looked nice, my hair was dry and dull. This product may work wonders for some curly hair, but it did not agree with mine.

Hopes dashed!
Sampled

As someone with "difficult" curly hair, I love trying new products. I was familiar with Devacurl, and the "no poo" philosophy (which I embrace in the sense that I rarely shampoo my hair). I had high hopes for the 3-step system, but it really did not work for me.

The "no poo" cleansing conditioner and the conditioner were very nice, and i might use them in the future. The styling gel, however, was a total failure. It was far too light in texture and hold for my hair, which is quite thick and a bit dry. I did not get much curl definition with this product (my hair is a wavy/curly combo that curls more with the right product), and ZERO frizz control. It was a windy day, which did not help matters, but really as soon as I felt the gel, I knew it would not work for me. I can see this being great for someone with thin or fine hair, but mine is neither. I wanted this to work, but I'll be sticking with Ouidad for now.

Problem packaging.
Sampled

I hate it when samples come in packaging that can't be resealed. What am I supposed to do after I open it? Leave it on the side of my bathtub and hope I don't accidentally squish all the leftover product out?

In terms of product effectiveness, I wasn't super impressed. The "no-poo" seemed to leave my hair greasy, and the styling gel certainly does not "dissolve instantly" as promised. Meh.
