MAKE A FRESH START
This non-stripping cleanser with the Clarifying Complex helps remove product buildup on all curl types.
Pair It With
Buildup Buster® 101
No, Buildup Buster® is safe for use on color-treated hair.
Yes, you can use it weekly or as needed, as a replacement of your regular cleanser to deeply clean and help remove buildup.
We recommend approximately 1 tablespoon for fine hair and approximately a palm-full for thick hair.
Yes, you must rinse out Buildup Buster® to get your scalp and curls clean and remove buildup. It is not a leave in.
It is necessary to follow up with a conditioner or moisturizing treatment to ensure waves and curls are appropriately moisturized and to avoid frizz and dryness.
Aqua Bliss Fragrance
A comforting, spa-like scent that starts with notes of Eucalyptus, Coriander, Peppermint and Jasmine and finishes with Pine, Musk and Juniper.
We are committed to being kind to the environment and reducing our eco-footprint. This bottle is made from 50% recycled ocean bound plastics.
What it means to us: styling versatility so your curls can take on any shape and stand up to anything. Protect, revive or reset your waves, curls, or coils with confidence.
How to use
Use as needed in place of your regular cleanser. Use our “scrub in/scrub out” method: apply to scalp and scrub in with fingertips. Scrub out while rinsing thoroughly. Follow with your favorite DevaCurl® conditioner or treatment.
Our formulas are dermatologist co-developed, backed by science and stylist approved for curls.

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

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!

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.

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.
