Deva Curl Buildup Buster Launch Event {+Giveaway}


DevaCurl launched a new product called

Buildup Buster!

So mad I wasn’t in the picture, but I left a little early

Like most of their exciting launches they had an awesome launch party in Manhattan, & y’all know I love me some NYC, plus I was invited, so I definitely had to show up! After arriving I was quickly filled in about what this product! Bottom-line…is is a Micellar Cleansing Serum…LOL Easy right??? Don’t worry I’ll break it down for you.

Miceller Water has been used in skincare before so that is nothing new, but what is new is that DevaCurl somehow figured out a way to incorporate this into a hair care product, the first of its kind! Yes, DevaCurl is THE 1st to do this! The Micellar Water in the Buildup Buster “attracts dirt like a magnet” to remove build up from the hair & scalp. It also contains Abyssinian Seed Oil & Jojoba which delivers moisture, shine & snaps your curls back into shape.

Now I know Abyssinian Oil maybe new to some of you, so without getting to detailed & long winded & chemist-like, Abyssinian oil is often compared to jojoba oil but it is much higher in erucic acid & means a stronger, intense moisturizer for your hair. It is a very stable & long-lasting seed oil that rapidly penetrates the outer layer of the epidermis, & because it is often compared to jojoba oil (meaning it mimics human sebum), it is very silky in texture & makes for a great natural alternative to silicones in haircare products With the erucic acid your hair gets a strong layer of protection against dehydration. Sounds Amazing Right?

Now back to the Buildup Buster This is a product meant to be used once weekly (or as needed), replacing your regular shampoo or co-wash for a deeper clean. So it is not “made” to be used as a pre-poo as I originally thought. But you know us naturals we always got to “test the waters” (no pun intended) so don’t be surprised if I end up trying this as a per-poo as well.

And, just like all DevaCurl products, Buildup Buster is sulfate-free, silicone-free & paraben-free.

DevaCurl SuperCream Coconut Styler is Here! (+ Giveaway {Closed})

Last month I had the pleasure of attending a product testing along with other influencers for a new and exciting product from DevaCurl. I’ve used DevaCurl products briefly in the past, but I hadn’t use their products in a LONG while, not for any particular reason so I was very excited to hear and learn about their new product that was geared towards coilier textures, plus this was the first time a major company reached out to me for me to work with them!!

I had the chance to personally test and use the new SuperCream Coconut Styler, which was release on July 7th, and I must say I was really impressed. This NEW rich, coconut oil infused styler contains key ingredients like coconut oil for healthy-looking shine and moisture, jojoba protein to boost elasticity and strengthen curls, and corn starch for touchable hold and frizz control. As with all of Devacurl products, the coconut styler does not contain any sulfates, and is paraben and silicone free. Now you guys know anything with coconut I am willing to try.

I did arrived to the testing event with a fresh wash n go BUT, I really wanted to see how well this product worked on freshly washed hair and do a style that I would normally do, as a wash n go is not a hair style I do often so I asked to have my hair washed. Isabella Vasquez quickly No Poo’d my hair and told  me  she wanted me to use the SuperCream as a detangler instead. I was instantly taken back, I was like OK?!? I usually detangle with a conditioner and NOT a styler, so I was so nervous. But I did managed to detangle and twist my hair in under 30 mins. NO COMB.

I sat under a hooded dryer for about an hour or so, since I obviously couldn’t really let it air dry overnight, Unraveled  my twist and fluff up and picked the roots. I had shiny, soft, and a defined  fluffy twist out. Super Cream is EVERYTHING!!

It’s nice to see  Devacurl creating products for us 4 type textures because I was never drawn to DevaCurl because their products always seemed to be more geared towards looser textures and I just never really worked for me as my hair got longer, but now that they have this, They’ve gotten my attention. And I actually revisited some of their No Poo products and and Conditioners since trying the SuperCream and I must say I wonder why I stopped using their products, becasue they are really amazing.  I am definitely going to be trying this product out more and more and in different ways. I highly recommend you Guys try it and let me know below what you think!

They do have a few more products coming out in the fall that are all about moisture! So make sure to follow them on Instagram for upcoming products announcements @mydevacurl
