Let me tell you a bit about my hair - it's long, thick, dry, coarse, wavy, and color-treated. I prefer to use a flat iron but it becomes very time consuming, so I've been on the hunt for hair products that will actually define my waves, keep frizz at bay, not strip color (preferably sulfate-free), and add moisture without being greasy. It's a laundry list, I know. Enter DevaCurl 3-Step trial kit...
|Before and after!|
My hair in the "before" picture is actually wavier but I didn't think to take this picture
until I'd brushed my hair out before trying the DevaCurl system. I think you get the idea, though!
|Here is a before and after close up! Can you tell why I love DevaCurl?!|
- Cleanse with DevaCurl NoPoo (odd name I know, but it's short for non-shampoo). DevaCurl No-Poo is the ORIGINAL, best-selling, non-lathering shampoo alternative. Our sulfate free, highly moisturizing cleanser stimulates, hydrates and cleans the scalp and hair to reveal the healthiest, bounciest natural curls. I love how this cleansing conditioner smells - like lavender and peppermint! It does take a bit of work and a splash or two of water to thoroughly get it through hair. It definitely doesn't lather.
- Hydrate with DevaCurl One Condition. The DevaCurl One Condition ultra creamy conditioner is excellent for daily use and for all curl types. I found this conditioner to smell lemony and a bit fruity. It rinses really clean yet doesn't make hair "squeaky" or feel stripped. I was a little let down when I didn't feel like it made my hair slippery like most conditioners do, but I was not let down with the results!
- Define with DevaCurl Light Defining Gel. This light hold moisturizing and deﬁning gel dissolves instantly when applied to wet hair. As it dries, Light Defining Gel forms a moisture-protective cast to enhance curls. This thick, clear gel smells just like green apple and is super-easy to work through hair. And the best part of all - it actually does dissolve after you work it into your hair, which means no stickiness! Love it!
My waves are defined, hair feels moisturized, I barely have any frizz and DevaCurl products are sulfate-free (therefore much more gentle on color). I can't even believe it, but my laundry list of items have been checked off by the DevaCurl 3-Step System, and as such, I picked up the full size containers of all three!
