Love this
Review by Kathryn B. on 14 Oct 2021 review stating Love this
I bought this hoping it would improve my hair (my stylist recommended it) and yes it left my hair light and fluffy. My curles are lively and lightweight. I haven't been in love with my hair like this ever. Thank you

Great Product
Review by Laurel D. on 3 Oct 2021 review stating Great Product
I had been using another line before switching to Devacurl and couldn't get it out of my hair. I used the Buildup Buster, and straight away, the Devacurl products worked the way they should. Beautiful curls!

Not convinced
Review by Heather W. on 31 Aug 2021 review stating Not convinced
A while back, I got a sample of a micellar-water-based buildup reducer from DevaCurl and loved it. I thought this was the same thing but it isn’t. Doesn’t make my hair feel as good as the other stuff I tried.

I love the new Build Up Buster!
Review by Maria S. on 20 Aug 2021 review stating I love the new Build Up Buster!
Build Up Buster used with One Condition left my hair incredibly soft but gave my hair the needed volume! I love it and have used it for years.

Make sure you thoroughly wash out otherwise your hair will feel gross - otherwise GREAT
