I have been following the Curly Girl Method for several months now; I even went out and got the special Deva Cut. Deva Curl Products were used during this cut, and I was less than impressed. In fact, I was pretty disappointed by the entire experience. The stylist told me over and over that, I would most likely be better off styling my own hair with the products. I pretty much wrote off the Deva Curl line. That was until I was walking around Ulta, and I got the itch. The uncontrollable “I am a product junkie and must have a fix.” itch. I picked up the travel size Deva Curl Line and went for it.
I followed my normal Curly Girl Method routine; squish to condish, applying massive amounts of styling cream, gel, and plopping. I was happy with my wash day results, but it was my second-day curls and beyond that have impressed me the most so far. Since I still have a lot of product to use up I will not give a definitive Splurge or Pass to the Deva Curl line. I will say I have gotten the best subsequent day hair that I’ve ever had after my initial Deva Curl wash day. I mean check out this second-day curl!
I slept with my hair in a pineapple; a super high ponytail or bun using a scrunchie. When I was ready to do my hair I fluffed the roots, then used a spray bottle to spray my hair down. (I have the best spray bottle from Home Depot!) I heard somewhere that if your hair is getting frizzy add more water. SO I added lots of water and then added a healthy amount of styling cream and a bit of gel. It was so wet I needed to defuse it, but it did dry faster than if I had washed it. The last step is scrunching out the crunch and rubbing the roots for volume. I was so pleased with how my hair turned out! I was pleasantly surprised and even had some super curly clumps.
In this short and sweet video, you can see all three days of refreshed curl results following my wash day. I will continue to use up all the Deva Curl Products and will give my final verdict as to whether or not the Deva Curl line is worth the splurge.
