Still the Best Product for Curls
Review by Carol C. on 23 Apr 2024 review stating Still the Best Product for Curls
I was a devoted Deva user for years and for many reasons decided to try other products. I’m back to Deva and do not plan any detours. It’s simply the best product on the market for my very curly (tendency for frizz) hair. Deva maintains the curls in a soft natural way and whether shorter or longer my hair looks great. I’m a fan and won’t budge.

For Waves it’s meh
Review by Gillian G. on 4 Apr 2024 review stating For Waves it’s meh
Doesn’t do much for my 2a/2b waves. Just leaves them feeling undefined and stringy.

Just right
Review by Alida C. on 6 Jan 2024 review stating Just right
My hair is curly/wavy and not very thick. This product gives just the right curl definition and body. It’s not heavy or greasy. It’ doesn’t make my hair “crispy”. I’m very pleased with it.

You changed the scent
Review by Liana S. on 28 Dec 2023 review stating You changed the scent
This was a huge disappointment. The original scent was amazing. Why change?? It’s a different product,
