It doesn't do much
Review by Alexandra on 13 May 2020 review stating It doesn't do much
I use this whenever I feel like I have build up because I have the bottle and always hope "maybe this time it'll work." Honestly is works about as well as when I take the time to scrub my scalp for a long time. My scalp is still dry as hell, and flakey. Plus it doesn't improve shine further than my regular no-poo and original conditioner routine.

I love this product. It helps to cleanse build up without drying out my hair or irritating my scalp. It is now my go to cleanser.

DevaCurl Makes Hair Fall Out and Burns Scalps
Review by Carrie S. on 8 Apr 2020 review stating DevaCurl Makes Hair Fall Out and Burns Scalps
I stopped using DevaCurl and completely switched to another brand. After the first wash with my new brand, the dandruff was gone and has never returned. I never had dandruff before DevaCurl. DevaCurl gave me dandruff, even when I used BuildUp Buster religiously. My sister wasn't as lucky. She got scalp burns, dandruff, dermatitis, and hair loss. That's enough for me to never go near DevaCurl again. I had to throw away my backstock because I refused to donate it. I didn't want an unknowing person to suffer.

Hi, as with any cosmetic or personal care product, if you have a negative experience (such as itchy scalp) that you think may be related to use of DevaCurl products, you should immediately stop using the product. If you experience hair loss, you should contact your healthcare provider or dermatologist. You can learn more about the safety of our products at FactsAboutDevaCurl.com.

Caused major scalp irritation, to the point where it felt like my scalp was burning in places. Would not recommend.
