Product Review (submitted on March 10, 2016):
So glad I finally found a sulfate free hair shampoo for curly hair! My parents are very aware of what you put in and on your body and thus I am aware of this too. It was hard for me to find a sulfate free shampoo that hydrated my curly hair and also didn't break the bank. For a while I was only shampooing my hair once or twice a week and only using conditioner the rest of the times I showered. But now that I found DevaCurl I can return to my normal Shampoo & Condition routine and know that my curly are healthy and being cared for. And my hair feels clean! I'm actually surprised at how long it's lasted. My hair is fairly thick and falls at about halfway through my rib cage when pulled straight. I received the 12oz bottle towards the end of December and still have about a 1/4 left now at the beginning of March! I think because it's creamy it's easier to control where it goes in my hair unlike a liquidy substance that's less easy to control. And because the shampoo and conditioner are both creamy I found that both bottles are at the same point, which is something that's never happened with me. I usually run out of the conditioner first because I need more of it in my hair. But with DevaCurl a little goes a long way!
*Side note* Before I tried DevaCurl I saw a picture of a girl with very frizzy hair before and beautiful tight curls after. I was expecting my hair to be more curly by using this product. It was a tiny bit more curly but nothing like the picture. I'm sure if I would have frizzed out my hair before and then used the product I would have seen that change but my hair did not have that big of a issue before (thank you mousse!). I have noticed that some of my curls are more defined but if you're already using a styling product that helps tame your curls you probably won't see a huge difference. This is the equivalent to the primer you put on before the paint. You'll still need some styling products to keep curls frizz free just like any other shampoo, but with DevaCurl you'll just need a bit less.
