DevaCurl No Poo Review

xoxo

Okay…apparently people misunderstood me. I compared the No Poo to CJ Daily Fix, which is also a cleansing conditioner. NEITHER are supposed to be true conditioners (and also should not be left in the hair, even though the CJ makes me feel like I want to leave it in), which is why I said I was surprised that I don’t need to follow up with another conditioner with the CJ, while I feel it’s necessary with this one. A cleansing conditioner is ALWAYS different from a regular conditioner because they contain ingredients to cleanse your hair (usually coco betaine), ie, take something away, while other conditioners do not cleanse and “add” something to your hair (moisture/hydration). In terms of stripping/dryness issues, from most stripping to least stripping, I would rate the products: Shampoo > Cleansing Conditioner > Conditioner. I never thought the No Poo should be used as one’s sole conditioner in the shower. Hopefully this clears up any confusion.

  1. Wow, Izzy seems to grow when touched by heat. πŸ™‚ I have hair similar to Izzy’s (but shorter) so I’m hoping when mine gets that length, I too can be vertsatile. But at four inches total, the only thing I dare is hair dye every few weeks. I love the DevaCurl Low Poo cleanser and One Conditioner which I buy at Ulta. They also have a Color line which is decent but hard to come by. But lately, I keep going back to grocery-store Aussie Moist which has amazing slip and almost “elongates” my hair. After rinsing it out, I layer the Oyin Honey Dew or Honey-Hemp, then Komaza Coconut Pudding, then CJ Curls in a Bottle. A few of those are your favs and definitely work for me, too. So thanks for the posts!!

  2. First, Izzy looks fantastic!

    Second, I luv your blog and check it almost daily; thanks for the great reviews.

    About the No Poo… I’ve used it several times and it’s not really supposed be a conditioner (despite the name), it’s really a shampoo that doesn’t lather. It’s the only shampoo that I have found that doesn’t leave my hair feeling completely dried out, but as far as any detangling or moisturizing, you need to follow it with the Deva Care One or some other conditioner.

    Just my two cents.

  3. Thanks Elle, I might have to order elsewhere hmmm. I think ur hair looks great like photoshoot blowing in the wind type hehe πŸ™‚ I will be buying that lipstick and eyeshadow. Much thanks!

  4. Izzy looks awesome and as usual Elle you look gorgeoussssssssssssssssss, I swear everytime I see your reviews the product junkie in me gives in, they don’t have it in stores in the UK so I might have to order online, I also wanted to know if maybe you could do a tutorial on how you did your hair and makeup pweeti please with a cherry on top? xoxo

    1. Aw thanks! I just checked British Curlies and they don’t have Deva stuff on the site…that stinks! 😦 My hair is just flat ironed (yep it’s still that big lol, that’s why last time I did it I never even wore it out of the house) – I did a video on how I flat iron back in November, but it’s not exactly a tut because I never plan to iron my hair. And trust me, lol, I am not equipped to do a makeup tut. I am the pits at makeup! The lipstick is Kangarouge by MAC though and the eyeshadow is from the Stila Color Wheel palette. Hope that helps some!

  5. Izzy looks great by the way. Thanks for the review. I may give the Deva products a Go again but only after I try the “imfamous” curl junkie products. I have the Curl Queen but it seems kinda light for my hair. Any way any tips of your staple CJ products? I was thinking of ordering the smoothing lotion to wear underneath the curl queen and top off with Curl in a bottle. Would use these to achieve a wash n go.

    BTW I just got a roller set yesterday and my hair is the exact same length and as yours and just as big. It started raining here in MD today too now I’m thinking of just washing it out. Guess I should have checked the weather too……..

  6. Thank you for the review.

    I’m gathering that given the product is a no-poo, and not a cleansing conditioner like the Curl Junkie Daily Fix, it would not be as moisturizing.

    Your hair looks very nice. What, exactly, did you do in order to style it the way you did.

    1. IMO the difference between the two is a matter of marketing…they have the same cleansing ingredients and are supposed to be conditioning. The only difference is DF says it’s a “cleansing conditioner” and the No Poo says, “conditioning cleanser” and “provides maximum cleansing and hydration.” Shrug. And thanks! I twisted my hair last night and didn’t like how my twist out came out (too soft, no hold, kinda frizzy) so I just flat ironed my hair.

      1. Ok. Interesting. Not having read the ingredients for the Deva Curl No Poo, I wasn’t aware that the cleansing ingredients are the same as those in the Curl Junkie Daily Fix. So, thank you for the information. πŸ™‚

      2. Oooh, I’m sorry! I posted the ingreds on my YT but not on here…yea, they both have coco betaine and I believe the peppermint is also for cleansing. I’ll post the ingreds here too.
