yuck!

This product worked a little bit I think, either that or I was having a good hair day. But I couldn't get over the scent! All three steps (especially step one) smells so chemical and strong and nasty that I threw it away after one use even though I could have used it another time. Step one, the "no lather" shampoo made my hair feel gross in the shower. I didn't like the feeling of no suds in my hair, and it felt gross and smelled disgusting. The second step smells less nasty, and worked a little better. The third step gave my hair a kind of crunchy look, which is fine but just not my style. Overall I knew that I wouldn't like or buy this product from the moment I opened the first little pack and smelled it.

Oh the smell...

I really wanted to love this product! But the smell was just absolutely overwhelming and gave me a two days of migraines. It smells like hair dye and grandma perfume had a baby. Yes, I am more sensitive to smell than others, but I couldn't get the smell to wash out for 3 days!

Yucky Smell

Overall, I was happy with my hair looked after using the 3 part system, but the smell of these products was awful, and strong enough that I could smell it on my hair throughout the day. Honestly, it smelled like DEET bug spray to me, which makes me feel ill to begin with. Maybe I'm just over sensitive to the scent, but the end benefits can't weigh out the smell on this one.

Did not like this product
Purchased

When I ordered this product I thought I was getting the actual 3 step system but when this arrived it was only the cleanser. I was not a fan of the smell or the end result of how my hair felt. Sad as I really had high hopes.

Not for me

I have naturally curly hair, but it wasn't for me. The shampoo didn't feel like it was cleansing...and the smell wasn't great. Overall, not one of the best brands for my curly hair.

Dislike!

I was anxious about trying this product because of the fact that it seems to be specifically for curly hair. I don't have tight curls, nor wavy hair, but more-so have loose curls, if you will. My hairs tends to be super dry for the most part that I hate using any kind of gel. So I tried the shampoo, conditioner, and gel combination after figuring I'd give it a shot. First of all, having a non-lathering shampoo was weird. And after rinsing it out, my hair did not feel "clean". And after trying the conditioner, again, did not feel it "conditioned" or "hydrated" my hair in any way. I kept on with the "system" and brushed out my hair and then tried the gel, which seemed to give my hair that nice thick curl look to it, but left my hair "crunchy" which I hate. As the day went on, it's as if my hair got even dryer. Sorry but this just doesn't work with my hair at all. I'll never use it again.

greasy

i was super excited to get this product in my box because i'm always looking for products for my curls. unfortunately no matter how little of the product i used, my hair was still greasy. i made my hair look flat and didn't help out my curls at all. i tried it several times, using different amounts, and it never turned out the way i was wanting

Gross

For a person with naturally curly hair I was so excited to get this in the mail. I am on an ultimate quest to find hair product for curly hair that don't make my hair look dirty or stiff and they made my hair look like I haven't washed it ever.

Hate it.

I've heard a lot of good things about Deva. I hated it. It made my hair look greasy and my curls were really messy. I'm sure that it works for some but it just didn't work for my curls.

Glad Birchbox Provided a Sample so I didn't waste my cash
Sampled

I had been curious about this product but hadn't yet tried it before receiving it in this months box. The samples were generous, which would have been good if I liked it. I don't. I've been using Ouidad which generally tames my curls but leaves them soft and touchable. I found the DevaCurl products to leave my hair feeling a little bit crispy. It didn't look that way to others but I personally hated the feeling and will be sticking with my Ouidad products. The smell is nice.
