I am reviewing the DevaCurl Trial + Travel Kit. The products were a gift from a fellow YT Vlogger. These opinions are my own and I’d encourage you to use thoughts and views as my experience. We all are different–different hair, regimen, etc. However, reviews have helped me extremely when it comes to making purchases. I hope this will do the same for you.

Let’s get going…

 

Kit Description

DevaCurl No -Poo Cleanser

Description: DevaCurl No-Poo is the ORIGINAL, best-selling, non-lathering shampoo alternative. Our sulfate free, highly moisturizing cleanser stimulates, hydrates and cleans the scalp and hair to reveal the healthiest, bounciest natural curls. Accept NO imitations!

Ingredients: Water (Aqua, Eau), Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Isopropyl Palmitate, Behentrimonium Chloride, Polyquaternium-7, Laureth-4, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Propylene Glycol, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Triticum Aestivum (Wheat) Peptide, Avena Sativa (Oat) Peptide, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Peptide, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Menthol, Citric Acid, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance (Parfum)

My Review: I would use this product if I needed a non-squeaky clean. But it would not become a regular part of my current regimen for two primary reasons (1) the cost and (2) my hair is thin and it felt as though it would cause it to tangle. My hair did not feel moisturized by the cleansing as I’ve experienced with other cleansing products.

What did I love about the product? The peppermint in the product because my scalp had a nice tingle. I love peppermint in hair products.

What I could do without concerning this product? The stringy feel. I know my hair was clean but it felt like I’d shampooed. Not fully striped, but not moisturized.

Would I use this product again? Probably not, but I won’t say “never”. It wasn’t horrible. Yet I don’t believe I would purchase this product, at least, not for my hair.

My Rating: 2 of 5

 

DevaCurl One Condition

Description: This ultra creamy daily conditioner provides maximum hydration and is perfect for all curl types.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua, Eau), Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Glycol Distearate, Cetyl Esters, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Propylene Glycol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Citric Acid, Diazolidinyl Urea, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance (Parfum)

My Review: It was a great product to follow the no-poo. My hair responded positively to using this conditioner. I don’t believe the trial size gave me enough to use it as I would normally use my conditioner in the shower. However, when I used as a leave-in it was awesome.

What did I love about the product? I loved the creamy texture of the conditioner. I loved the way it hydrated my hair. I loved the resulting softness.

What I could do without concerning this product? The price!!! Am I being cheap here? The price is not my norm. However, I’m willing to set outside my comfort zone if (and this is a HUGE if) I notice my hair retaining more moisture.

Would I use this product again? Yes. I purchased the 12oz bottle to try with my normal products. I can’t say I’m totally sold but I am curious about how the use of this product could positively effect my hair. I will definitely keep you posted.

My Rating: 3 of 5

 

DevaCurl Light Defining Gel Styling Gel

Description: This light hold moisturizing and defining gel dissolves instantly when applied to wet hair. As it dries, Light Defining Gel forms a moisture-protective cast to enhance curls.

My Review: No bueno…no good. This gel was way to light for my liking. I had to add gel on top of the gel. I’ll pass.

What did I love about the product? The smell.

What I could do without concerning this product? The entire experience. It’s not the gel’s fault. It just didn’t produce the type of results I like for my hair.

Would I use this product again? No.

My Rating: 1 of 5 (again, for my hair)

My Overall Experience…Thus Far

My first thoughts after the styling was WHAT IS THIS!!! Really…it was. As stated in the video, I was not happy. My hair was soft. It felt moisturized but I did not like the final results. I share in the video how I turned my experience around, along with the factors that I may have contributed to the failure of my first use of these products.

Following my usage I purchase more of the One Condition. I intend to use it with in my normal regimen for the next week or so…or until I finish the bottle, as long as I don’t have any adverse effects.

I will update this post. So, if you’re interested in knowing my thoughts once I finish my 12oz bottle of One Condition I’d suggest subscribing to this post beneath the comment section below. (See the sample image.)

In the end, as of today, I’m still on the fence. I look forward to trying this product for the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping for the best.
