Effective!
Review by Mariah B. on 8 Mar 2024 review stating Effective!
I have an oily scalp. I only wash my hair a couple times a week and get an itchy scalp from the old oil building up and solidifying. This clears it out well. The only thing I don't care for is how much I have to scrub in and scrub out, because my arms/hands get tired. Definitely use it with conditioner at least every other time you use it.

Seems to work well, I find the fragrance too strong
Review by Amberlee G. on 3 Jul 2023 review stating Seems to work well, I find the fragrance too strong
Works well, I also got the hypoallergenic non-fragranced no-poo and conditioner, and I much prefer the no fragrance to the strength of this fragrance, although I'm sure that's a personal preference.

Blind eye purchase
Review by MusMuva on 27 Jun 2023 review stating Blind eye purchase
I went to ulta on a search for a really good clarifying shampoo (I have mielle’s clarifying but wanted something new) honestly deva curl was my last choice but I got it due to my intuition. Listen ! After 3 weeks of braids with a horrible product buildup. I washed my hair twice with the shampoo my scalp looks so clean and new I’m very pleased with how it cleansed my scalp and then the definition of my waves/curls!!! I’m sold 🩵
