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.

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 Sara A. on 3 Mar 2023 review stating Thank God!
I got this for free as a sample and HAD to buy more! I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not, but after trying it, I now know I CANNOT live without it. I only need it once a week, but as long as they don't ever change the formula, I'll keep buying it! It's great for a once a week clean out of my hair before shampooing. I know it says to use in place of shampoo, but I use it before using my regular shampoo anyway, and my hair is just fine. I just use extra conditioner. I LOVE the way my hair feels after. Nice and soft and clean. GREAT STUFF!

My hairdresser recommended this cleanser
Review by firstname.lastname@example.org R. on 22 Dec 2022 review stating My hairdresser recommended this cleanser
My hairdresser recommended this cleanser because I swim in a chlorinated pool almost every day. Compared to no poo, which I have used for years, I find this cleanser makes my hair feel tougher and stringier and require a lot more conditioner.

Effective but heavy scent
Review by Crystal W. on 30 Sep 2022 review stating Effective but heavy scent
Buildup Buster does what it claims to do: it removes product build-up from your hair follicles effectively! However, it is heavily scented. I wish it was available in an unscented option.
