It’s in the best interest of curls. These ingredients can be harsh on curls, stripping their natural oils, blocking moisture, or causing buildup that can weigh them down.
Here is a complete "NO" list with other ingredients we don’t use:
No sulfates, silicones, parabens, phthalates, gluten, Coal Tar Dyes, peanut-derived ingredients, Formaldehyde, MIT, paraffin, petrolatum or mineral oil, DEA or TEA, Triclosan, Benzophenone, Dihydroxybenzophenone, Ethylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Nonolynol, Octoxynol or derivatives, 3-Benzylidene camphor, Talc, Ethyl acrylate, Ethyl methacrylate, Methyl methacrylate, Butyl methacrylate, Hydroxypropyl methacrylate, Tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate, Trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate, Aluminum Salts, Benzophenone, Butoxyethanol, Carbon Black Lead, Lead Acetate, Methyl Cellosolve, Methoxyethanol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Mercury or Mercury Compounds (Thimerisol), Insoluble Plastic Microbeads *applies to rinse off products only, Resorcinol, Toluene, BHA, ETA, Nanoparticles, Polyacrylamide, Acrylamide, or Styrenes.
Yes. Even though some of our products contain wheat-derived ingredients, they have been processed to remove gluten. All of our products have been lab tested and verified to be gluten-free.
Fear not, animal lovers, all DevaCurl products are totally cruelty-free. That means we don’t test any of our products or ingredients on animals (even though, man, we’d pay money to see what a crazy-talented stylist could do with a poodle’s curls). And BTW, any animal-sourced ingredient, say, the beeswax in Set It Free, is produced in a way that doesn’t harm the little critters.
No-Poo = No Lather! This means that the sodium lauryl sulfate was removed from the shampoo. Years ago stylists discovered that sodium lauryl sulfate was super-harsh and that bubbles did not = clean.
DevaCurl created a botanically-infused cleanser with a specific pH level that could cleanse the scalp without stripping follicles. The result was the world’s first conditioning cleanser or “No-Poo Original”.
Read our “What is No-Poo” blog post for more details!
The key difference is that no-poo does not lather and low-poo has a mild lather. Low Poo’s mild lather is derived from a coconut surfactant not from a foaming agent so it’s not drying.
When stylers are applied to soaking wet curls, it helps them lock in the definition and moisture provided by the water.
This revolutionary cutting technique was designed for all natural textures, from wavy to super curly. Hair is sculpted curl-by-curl, while dry, in its natural state.
We’re so glad you’re ready for your first DevaCut! Read our blog post on “How to Prep for your First DevaCut” to get all the details on how to prepare beforehand and what to expect at the salon.
This award-winning technique was designed to add gorgeous, light-reﬂecting highlights to all natural textures. Pintura Highlighting offers the perfect harmony and balance to waves and curls giving brilliance and dimension to beautifully compliment your DevaCut.
As our products are formulated with natural extracts and oils, it is normal over time that there may be a change in some formulas’ color or thickness. This change is a natural process and does not impact product quality, safety, or efficacy in any way.
These sulfate-free formulas will produce little to no lather. You will need to use your fingertips to work the formula on your scalp—scrub it in and scrub it out while rinsing. Your hair will also not have a squeaky-clean feeling – which is perfect for curls because it means they are moisturized.
