How to Use Wash Day Wonder

So by now, you’ve heard the hype, DevaCurl’s released Wash Day Wonder, a Pre-Cleanse Slip Detangler.

You’re all like OMG I NEED IT.

But then you’re like wait could it really be THAT good?

Don’t they already have a detangler?

Do I need this?

The answer to all three of these questions is yes.

But what makes it so good? What makes it different from the other detangler? And why is it going to change your wash day? Let us break it down.

Wash Day Wonder is a pre-cleanse detangler, aka you use it before you wash your hair to get the knots out first. Making actually washing your hair faster and easier. *hair flip*

It’s got the word slip in its name because it is loaded up with pracaxi oil, a Brazilian nut that makes the product easy to glide through tangles and curls. It makes pulling apart knots and detangling curly hair easier than ever before.

This detangler is different from DevaCurl’s No-Comb Detangling Spray for a few reasons.

  1. No-Comb Detangling Spray can be used on dry or wet hair. Wash Day Wonder is designed to ONLY be used in the shower on soaking wet hair.
  2. Wash Day Wonder has a thicker consistency. The texture is like a thinner conditioner, that’s still super silky. No-Comb Detangling Spray comes in a mist style bottle, it’s got a watery consistency.
  3. Wash Day Wonder has a lot more slip thanks to pracaxi oil.

So how do you use this magic detangler?

BEFORE cleansing, smooth Wash Day Wonder onto your soaking wet curls (I’m talking DRENCHED).

It’s best to apply the product in sections, that way you can ensure the product is saturated throughout your hair.

Then, you can use your fingers to gently detangle from the bottom up.

Next, apply your favorite cleanser and then wash out both products together, then condition and style as usual.
