Product Review (submitted on March 9, 2017):
I'm so confused by all the glowing reviews for this product. I was so excited to try it, but it has not met ANY of my expectations for a "buildup buster". I've tried using it several times now, with the hope that I can make it work for me, but every time it fails: my hair is heavy and weighed down, greasy (especially the roots), stringy, zero body, and it takes forever to dry. Honestly, it feels dirtier than ever. I massage it in and then spend ages trying to make sure it's rinsed out, but nothing works. My hair is normally wavy in the drier months, very curly in the more humid months, thick, and with lots of natural body, for reference. Clearly, I'm the lone dissenter here (though there are other reviews outside this site with similar experiences), and I just don't get it. There's none of the "lightness" or "bounce" that others have described, and my curls are less defined than ever...flatter than flat. I love all my other DevaCurl products, which I use regularly, but I just can't get behind this one. Going into the trash and will never be repurchased.
