A totally unsolicited beauty review today, guys. As you may know, I used to swear by DevaCurl a few years back, and I credited the Low-Poo and the One Condition specifically with getting my natural wave/curl back after my years of high school-era straightening. Now, I seriously splurged on this stuff, since at my local discount store it was still $18 a bottle. I stopped using it in favor of other products like Shea Moisture, but I’m now a re-convert. Here’s why.
Last April, I went and dyed a bunch of colors in my hair, and then spent the next six months heat-styling it into ringlets to show it off. Afterward, I cut my hair into a pretty blunt cut to get rid of the faded color, and then I dyed over it a deep brown. There goes my natural curl.
The lack of shape in my hair plus the coating of dye made my hair limp and lifeless, two things that are pretty terrible for natural waves. I don’t like styling my hair and I loved my curls, so I was considering a full-on perm. Then, my cousins gifted me Deva Curl products for Christmas, and I was SHOCKED to find that my hair started curling again!
