Today on the blog, we’re celebrating what we at DevaCurl call “super curly hair.” Now for most people that’s the family of type 4 curl types. But we also sometimes stretch it to include our tighter textured 3c peeps, since all of them are looking for that maximum moisture benefit (and many of us have a mix of textures on our heads).
But the big question in the room: does DevaCurl work for people with tighter curl patterns? Does DevaCurl work for people with type 4 hair?
So we’re going to address this first.
The answer is YES.
Bring us your 4a’s, your 4b’s, your 4c’s.
Whether you rock a fro with a wash and go, or do twist-outs, DevaCurl can and does work for tight textures.
AND YES, I recognize I am a 3-curl type writing this post. So you cannot trust me. I understand this. Trust these ladies instead:
In case you missed it, last November we partnered up with some fabulous curly ladies, one in particular, Ms. Courtney (@aka curlsandcourture) has type 4 hair, she also loves DevaCurl. Hence why we partnered with her. We knew if anyone could show off how well Deva worked on type 4 hair, it was her.
Check out her twist out routine right here:
Oh also, it’s not just her, her mom also loves DevaCurl (shout out to Mamma Curls and Couture).
More proof you say?
Fine, hre’s Crystal – her handle is NaturalMe4C. Her texture is the tightest of the tight. And mind you she also loves Deva. Check the background of any of her recent videos, you literally see the product on her shelf.
Here’s her twist out routine:
Oh I’m sorry, would you like some more?
THIS is queen Christin Brown.

Want to see a super curly girl use Deva with a curl sponge? Look no further than Chizi Duru’s channel, she did a salon series with Wesley Styles, where they showcase the styling technique.
The stylist tests several gels on the client, who did they pick? I’ll give you a hint, what brand blog are you reading right now?
What about a wash and go?
Perhaps you have met Jessica (aka @mahoganycurls) while she does have some type 3 curls, girl alsohas some type 4 curls, and she’s also a lover of Deva. Check out her wash and go routine right here:
Okay we’ve made our point. DevaCurl works for type 4 hair.
NOW for those of you with textures that are still, well, tight, but not type 4 tight – do not fear, DevaCurl also works for you. And there are some fabulous curly haired humans who you can look to for routine inspiration, tips and tricks.
Let’s start with Gio. Glorious Gio with his long glorious locks of curly hair. He too is a lover of Deva. And um, if you ever wanted to grow your hair long and fabulous, well it should be pretty obvious why keeping up with him is essential.

Look no further than Lisette (aka @luhsetty) who often see’s Deva stylists to highlight her gorgeous blonde curls, and is constantly changing things up:
Last, but definitely not least, is one of the natural hair world OG’s. Neicey (otherwise known as @naturalneiicey) shared a few months ago that she loves Deva. So much so she did an entire routine video and asked her followers to tag us so we would see it. Spoiler alert: It worked. And we literally lost our minds.
If you haven’t seen it, you must, because the results are AMAZING.
