I received another product in the mail by Influenster this week, and it may be the most exciting one yet. It is the newest DeVaCurl product called Build up Buster, not yet available in stores. The website says:
“We’re the first to bring Micellar Water to haircare! Micellar Water attracts dirt like a magnet to gently remove buildup from the hair and scalp. Unlike traditional clarifying shampoos that contain harsh ingredients, this powerful cleanser won’t strip the hair. Plus, it contains abyssinian seed oil and jojoba to deliver moisture, shine and head-turning bounce.”
The bottle top is a point that you screw open and the instructions tell you to focus on the scalp first and then move down toward the ends, rinse, then finish up with a conditioner. I used the product this morning after not having washed my hair for at least 8ish days. Going this long without washy for me means my curls are matted together, they are lifeless, flat, and very dry, with a slight fragrance of leftover coconut or olive oil mixed in. Knowing that this was the current state of my hair I thought this was a perfect time to test the effectiveness of the product!
The consistency of the product is gel like, but not sticky and it has a fabulous fragrance. If you have used any DevaCurl products you know not to expect any visible suds, and that was pretty much true here as well. I ran the tip all throughout my scalp, focusing on the back half of my head then worked some into the rest of my hair. I scratched around for a while before rinsing and conditioning like normal.
I’m not sure I can say that it “decreased any buildup” but I did feel like my hair was clean yet not striped of its oils like other shampoos do. To my curly girls, have you tried any of the DevaCurl products? Did you like them?

I’ve tried a few other products of theirs. The No Poo, One Conditioner, and The Ultra Defining Gel. I believe there is a level above the No Poo (like a little more “poo”) and I think I would like that better. Same for the Defining Gel, it was a little too crunchy for me. The One Conditioner is awesome though!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
