    Oh my goodness...so glad I saw this. I got low-poo and one condition delight along with the melt into moisture mask as a Christmas present and I have noticed slight hair loss in the areas you mentioned. I will stop using it right away, very disappointed. Thank you so much.

    I have 3a 3b curls with a few random 2c sections. My hair was down to my butt and finally healthy after a year + of allowing it to be natural. I bought the Deva curl archangel and the styling cream because of all of the amazing recommendations. I wasn't getting consistent results but I didn't want to waste expensive products. After 6 months I had to cut off 14 inches of hair because whole chunks of my hair were falling out. I lost handfuls of hair every time I washed. My hair is finally growing back, but the short regrowth Halo frizz is so annoying. There are much better products for way better prices on the market now.

      PS don't let the strict curly girl method cult blame you for not "doing it right". Sometimes the products just don't work, and sometimes (like this) they can even be dangerous.

    I tried the products because Ulta was having a sale. I just didn't like the product - it didn't provide me with any benefit I was looking for. Never even finished the samples. Glad I didn't use it long enough for any damage to be done. Sorry this has happened to you.

    I use the Aussie miracle curls co-wash and the Aussie miracle curls deep conditioner. Then I just put some virgin coconut oil in my hair after I shower.

    Just for people go struggle with dry detangling, you can try to put some oil in your hair to make it easier and reduce breakage. My hair tangles very easily so I always end up with a lot of breakage either if I dry detangle w/o oil or if I do it in the shower, so I like to use some coconut or olive oil. I hope this would help someone but again this is my personal experience and what works for my hair (I have type 3 hair)

    Hey Stephanie! Can you please do a video on moisturizing thin, fine, tightly coiled hair? My hair is always dry, although I deep-condition every wash-day, ie. every 2 weeks. I have lots of shedding and breakage during wash day, too. I just want healthy hair, but I’m doing everything I can. :(

    Can I ask you about getting a color remover done at the salon? I have an appointment in 2 weeks and I’m getting this done to lighten my natural darker brown hair. My coarse and curly hair is damaged and I’m hoping that using a color remover that’s sulfur based is a less damaging alternative to doing highlights. What do you think, Stephanie? Thanks

  • RespectedProfessional

    TLDR: Don’t let stylists ever thin your curly hair. I wish I had watched this video before my cut in November. I had been in this salon previously and had a suitable cut (to my inexperienced perspective) and returned years later for a cut. I impressed upon this new stylist/colourist that I have had negative experiences in the past and am “high maintenance” and can be critical of stylists’ techniques with curly hair. The receptionist booking me in (of course) effusively reassured me that the stylist was very attentive and had several years of experience with many curly clients. I should have known when the stylist told me she’s only one year out of her apprenticeship that she was not the one for me. Red flags kept popping up, like the vigorousness of the shampoo, the doggy-dry style of toweling off my wet hair aggressively, the lack of variety in conditioner... I digress. She asked many questions and listened and seemed very attentive, but when she said she would begin thinning my hair, I should’ve stopped her then and there. She clipped off entire chunks of my hair I’ve been working on for over 7 years that were between 3 and 11 inches. ELEVEN INCHES OF PURE CURL. How did I not slap her and run out screaming? By the time I realised my error in trusting her, she’d already completed half of my head. I was stuck and got hot, flustered, began sweating and had no choice. She cut my bangs and thinned them as well, to the point where I still have tiny half-inch swirls stuck to my forehead. Where I once had a beautiful mane that I prized and worked so hard to care and nurture, I’m left with a piecey, chunky, raggedy mullet-looking mess. This will take years of effort to mend, and while I know it is hair and most people can’t be bothered to care at all, it knocks your self esteem and especially makes you mistrusting of any stylist or colourist.

    I used deva curl for a little over a year and i loved it at first. Then all of a sudden i was realizing how dry my hair was and when i went to get a haircut my hair dresser was like its really dry you need to start deep conditioning more often. I had keep seeing people on deva curl ads saying how it was causing dry hair and stuff like that so i cut all my deva curl products out (except for the microfiber towel) and my hair is already so much better 2 months later. Im so glad i realized the issue before it became more than just dry hair

    I am so glad more and more people realize in which way Industries damage our body the only reason this happens is because they are greedy and want you to buy more without realizing what causes the problem it seems devacurl went too far changing formulations last time. I have noticed this problem years ago and quit using products with any kind of chemical in it. Biological products only, and I never felt better. It is the problem in skincare, haircare even healthcare. It's called capitalism

    Thank you so much for sharing this! My hair has been growing back curly after having chemo therapy last year, and diva curl is the only product line I’ve used so far. I heard it was the best, so that’s all I’ve used. But I have noticed a lot of breakouts along my hairline and even on parts of my scalp. I also find that my hair feels corser than it did a few months ago, when I was still using a regular shampoo & conditioner. As a curly hair newbie, this info is so valuable. Thank you for saving me, and others, from doing further damage! 🙏❤️

    Oh Wow!! I have super fine hair, and I switched to strict curly girl about 6 months ago, with DevaCurl products, even went to a Deva stylist for a cut in Nov, and I think my super fine texture hair reacted faster, because my hair got trashed! I thought DevaCurl was finally going to be the answer for my super varied lengths which no two hairs get on the same page so my texture resembles a cotton ball, or if I blew it out, halo frizz, crazy fly aways and tangling all over the length... but my hair got so trashed, even oil couldn't tame it... I have already dropped all my Deva products. I am now still staying away from all insoluble silicone's, and keeping sulfates away except laureth to occasionally clarify, and am trying Olaplex 3 treatments. My hair still isn't better :( Thank you so much for your video!! I started curly girl because I shared my hair struggles on facebook, and soooo many of my curly friends all commented "use DevaCurl!!". I am now going to share your video on my facebook in case some of them are having these issues and don't know whats going on and like so many, wouldn't ever think it could be their beloved Deva products!

  • Rickerov

    My hair stylist used the products on me once and I loved the result so I bought the products at the salon. Went well at home for awhile buuuut then started making my hair gross in a multitude of ways. In panic mode I switched products and after about 6-8 months my hair was happy again. I am also now realizing that my stylist never used the products on me again and they actually completely removed the line from the salon after one that one period of time so I imagine they didn’t love it either. Anyway, Sephora sent me a sample shampoo and conditioner and I gave to it to my boyfriend and his hair came out so nicely that he wanted more and I thought maybe I’d try it again in case it wasn’t the products. I mean how could it be when so many people love it. So we both start using devacurl again. His hair thinned out and became brittle and mine has yet to recover almost 2 years later. It’s sad and thin, I have straight up almost bald patches, greasy scalp but dry ends, I have to use so many products for moisture just to make it look alright. Oh and it just doesn’t want to grow. My stylist thought I was going elsewhere because my hair stayed the same length for that entire period even with trying to keep it healthy with trims. I just want my thick healthy hair back. Or even just for the bald patches to grow back. I just started using extra dark castor oil on them and hopefully that helps (and a rich vitamin filled diet, etc). Until then I filled in the spots with powder. Blegh. It has messed with my confidence and I don’t leave the house without clip ins now (which I know can cause breakage but I am mostly home the vast majority of time). It just sucks and it’s so awful. There are better products for infinitely less money and if this really is just from the devacurl products and they’re aware of the issue but still selling it then that’s horrifying.

    I know it's geard towards the wavy line but I brought a big bottle of the arc angel gel a year ago but I just became fully natural and I used it and my hair felt really rough. I was told that since I was relaxed that I wasn't use to feeling texture. I even thought it was scab hair but they said it isn't any solid proof of scab hair and if it is, your scalp would have to be damaged and my scalp isn't. Now that I'm natural a full year, even my hair naked doesn't even feel like what I felt a year ago. I still have gel left and I hate to trash products, especially expensive ones, but I'm going to do it😔

I remember my first curly stylist (~10+ years ago now) mentioned I need to careful about product dates and storage. Really liked Massey’s approach to curly hair and how her book didn’t push her product line. I still use many of those recipes for my own hair care. Didn’t even realize she had left the company 5 years ago - yikes! Thanks for bringing these issues up and being a voice out there.

    I went to a hair stylist to get a deva cut which i had started out with deva products and i didn’t like them enough to rebuy and i told that stylist it does not work on my hair but kept trying to say that it works i was just using it wrong. She used one of their curl cremes and a b leave in in my hair. Legit my hair was tangling as she raked the products in and had no curl definition by the time i left. She cut more to try to fix all the bs going on with my hair and of course no curl came back and i denied any further cutting as by this point my curls were above my ears. It took a month to get moisture back in my hair and 3 months to put it in a pony tail again then a year to grow out the bad layers from my first diva cut 🙃 now a year and a half later I’ve grown out my layers and my hair is bra strap length🙌🏽

    Thank you so much for being an advocate. I'd been using the DevaCurl No Poo shampoo and One Condition for several months with no problems. I started using the DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel. A few days later I started breaking out into hives, but my hair and scalp were fine. My dermatologist thought it was scabies. After doing the scabies treatment for months with no relief, I realized the issue must be something else. Turns out it was an allergic reaction to something in the gel. I have the same reaction to the Light Defining Gel. I think I'm allergic to an ingredient in those gels, maybe DMDM Hydantoin, which is a formaldehyde derivative. Anyone else have a similar reaction? Now I use Innersense products (a little pricey) and Curls products (a great line available in drug stores).

    I tried probably 3 deva curl products in November when I started my curly/wavy journey and the next morning I got such a bad migraine in my group fitness class I had to leave to not vomit in class. The smell on my head was so strong, especially when I started sweating. It was my worst migraine ever. I returned the products and then started seeing these other hair loss/damage complaints. I live in central Florida as well so I bet your right, our products probably get crazy hot in the process of shipment down here. Thanks for your hard work and keeping the message out there.

    Oh my gosh... I struggle with keeping my curls moisturized (especially the ends) and recently got a travel size of DevaCurls’ curl cream from Sephora. Just this past week I’ve been wondering why the ends of my hair (which is where I’ve been using the curl cream) feel so dry and crispy. I now realize that my dry ends started to get worse after I started using the DevaCurls product. I’m shook. I am so happy I found this video when I did. I’ve only recently reworked my entire curl routine (I was only using a deep conditioner and mouse so not much of a routine) with the hope I can get the well defined curls I had when I was little. Thank you for making this video!

    I got my first deva cut in 2017 and i was so excited and on the deva curl hype. I got there and after the dry cut she started washing my hair with the deva curl products and i could tell that my hair was reacting way different then when i do my own hair but I pushed it out of my mind because i was excited about my deva cut and I thought deva curl was the best. After she washed and styled my hair she was telling me that the deva curl gel she used didn’t work for my hair but to try the other deva curl gel. I walked out of that salon all happy and excited from my first deva cut but looking back at pictures from then you can clearly see that my hair was a dry, frizzy, undefined mess and I realized later on that the hair stylist knew she did me wrong but didn’t say anything. After i washed my hair later on that week and styled it how i usually did without deva curl products my hair was soft and hydrated and defined and I realized how horrible the deva curl products were for my hair and i never used them again.

    I started using DC 2 and a half years ago, when I worked at Sallys, because we got to shop at cosmoprof, with our discount too! I was hyped and fell in love! I only stayed at Sallys for about 8 months, because it was a shit show lol. Before I quit, I went to 3 different cosmoprofs and bought as many wavemakers and litters of the no poo and one conditioner as I could, since two liters came to just less than $20 and my wavemakers were $7 there. That alone was a red flag, because that’s a huge price difference, and they’re still making a profit. But anyways, I had no problems with any of those products and kept using them, until I finally ran out of my no poo.... I went to ultra and shelled out for a full price liter and idk what happened but something definitely changed! It just wasn’t working for my hair. I tried to blame it on winter and that was why it wasn’t working, but now I know I’m not crazy!

    Devacurl doesn't do anything for real afro-textured curly coily hair. 4a, 4b, and 4c textures, it doesn't do anything for us. That's I never used it. Plus, no one in the natural hair(black hair) community uses it.

    My hair naturally, even as a kid, is extremely frizzy and dry with loose waves. For about two years I’ve used different products to try out and nothing works for me. I don’t use any heat and don’t color my hair. I just found out about porosity and I have high porosity and I heard that means I need protein rather than moisture. But even that’s not working. My hair is constantly tangled. Will your book help my situation? Lol I was just in Miami, wish I would have found you a couple weeks sooner! You’re so knowledgeable!!!

    I use SheaMoisture shampoo, conditioner, treatment and leave in treatment. I use DevaCurl’s curl revival spray (which came out in September 2019 I believe) but I only use it once a week. I don’t use DevaCurl styling creams any more as I found them too thick. Thanks for the warning. I’ll be sure to review my curly girl routine

    I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I know that no matter what product I use I can't use it for too long or my hair gets tired of it. I have to swap out for a bit before I can go back.

    Wow! I've been wondering for a long time now why my crazy thick hair has gotten to be so much thinner! Now that I think about it, the thinning started when I was using DevaCurl. It's literally lasted 3 years until recently when I decided to buy shampoo and conditioner for thickening hair--something I'd always stayed faaar away from all my life.

    Dang this scares me, I still have some deva curl products from about a year or two ago that I haven’t finished ... they’re not my go to because of the price but now I know I’m just not gonna touch this if it’ll mess up my hair

    I'm pretty sure devacurl products have citrus essential oils in them. That's the fragrance part of the ingredients. That's the lemony smell.vCitrus essential oils are very irritating and can cause allergic reactions if used for long periods of time. And the devacurl no poo doesn't really wash out completely like a normal shampoo so there is oil residue left on the scalp to clog and irritate it causing inflammation and hair loss.

    I'm gonna be honest, the marketing of Deva as The curly product and the way they forced themselves into a near household name in recent years has really made me wary. A company that tries that hard has SOMETHING in its closet that's usually not very good

    This explains so much! I heard everyone raving and raving so I bought some and tried and since I'm low porosity, I used the Melt Into Moisture with a cap and heat. My hair felt so awful the next day I had to deep condition with something else all over again. Never used it again after that! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences! And doing it in such a way that you're not bashing or telling people to buy the brands that sponsor you or sell at your salon. Just a helpful, informative rundown of your experience and theories. Thank you thank you!

    I never realized any of this and I still have product that I use. Maybe it’s from the ownership change

    DAMN! Its time for a class action suit. Do we know what the chemical is and has anyone ph tested any of the products? This is terrible and unacceptable, and if they aren't doing anything about it then they need to be made to respond.

    Did you check the products' ph level? It's a super easy test and it'll give you a definite answer about its alkalinity.

    I only like the Arc Angel gel because it gives me big curls and I always cocktail with other Curl Smith products or it feels dry as shit. But I switched to Curl Smith In Shower Styler. Everything else that's Devacurl is blah and overpriced. I once bought $300 worth of their shit and brought it right back to Ulta/Sephora after using it. Dryness city. I love Curl Smith and Shea Moisture.

    Used devacurl ONCE a couple months ago. Pure nightmare, after one use. Took 3 full washes to fix it. My friend got a devacut and after the stylist put the products in her hair, it was a huge frizzy mess and the stylist was mortified. She just kept telling my friend "It's just you. The products don't like YOUR hair." Hmm, okay. Unprofessional and untrue. The brand is the problem, not all these women. Thanks for sharing truth♡
