When you are a girl with curly hair you are always on the look out for products that will make your curls flourish. Let me tell you it can get over whelming. There are so many products out their for us curly heads. So I’m always happy to try out products geared towards people with curly hair. I was lucky enough for Influenster to send me the new DevaCurl Buildup Buster.
What is Buildup Buster? It is a gentle no-to-low lather cleansing treatment thoroughly removes buildup. This is great if you are that person that just packs on so many different products in your hair on a daily basis. It’s totally free of the harsh sulfates in traditional clarifying shampoos. So it won’t be stripping your hair of the moisture that it needs.
You are probably wondering what is in the DevaCurl Buildup Buster right? Micellar Water…yup you heard me right, Originally a solution to France’s harsh tap water, micellar water has since found it’s way into skin care products around the world. And now it has made it’s way into the hair care world. The tiny micellars (i.e. small clusters of fatty acid esters) It attracts dirt and buildup like a magnet, lifting away from the scalp and hair for gentle removal while still providing a deep clean.
This cleansing systems also works as a treatment for your scalp and hair. And that’s because it contains Jojoba, which softens and contains your hair. While Abssinian Oil, gives shine to your hair, while moisturizing and protecting your scalp.
The DevaCurl Buildup Buster feels like a serum you would apply to your face but in this case you apply it to your hair. It has a gel-like consistency and it has a subtle scent, which I quite like. I squeeze about a palm size in my hand. and I distribute it all over my scalp and hair. I found it incredibly easy to distribute all over my scalp and through out my hair and I have pretty long hair. It rinses out really quickly unlike if you were to use a shampoo. After you rinsed it your hair feels so much “lighter” and conditioned – very moisturized, clean and tangle free – I have a huge issue with my hair tangling. I will say that I probably will run out a lot quicker because I do have so much hair.
I always apply conditioner that is the one product that I always use apply to my hair. Influenster included two sample packets of the DevaCurl One Condition. I applied the One Condition after I rinsed out the Buildup Buster. They say not to rinse it out. I however left it in my hair and brushed out my hair as I normally would. My hair felt so much “lighter”, manageable and tangle-free my hair has been since using this product.
This product is a great for any one who experiences buildup from product, the environment, or hard water It works for all curl types (wavy,curly and super curly) Buildup Buster is totally safe for colour-treated hair.
