Questions & Answers for DevaCurl Styling Cream

Question
Amount of product
How much are you supposed to use in relation to hair length? The sample is such a large size I don't know if that means you need a lot or if it just has many uses in it.

I have medium short, medium thick, curly hair and the sample lasted me three stylings. I bought the product and find about a teaspoon amount works best in my hair.

No, this product is to help define hair that is already curly, it won't give you curls.

When I first used this I had shoulder length hair and I used about a quater size. But I do have a LOT of SUPER thick hair.

I think it's a very large sample to let you try it out and see if you like it. I have the sample right now too, and when I tried it, I used a large dollop about the size of five quarters stacked (because that's how much came out when I squeezed). I have medium-thickness chest-length wavy hair. When I saw how much came out, I freaked out a little, but thought what the hey, and tried it out anyways, and smoothed it all through my hair, focusing on the tips and center areas, and smoothing some on the top to control frizz. It worked out great! The hold isn't very strong in this cream, and my curls were fluffy and smooth, touchable, with no crunch. They were nourished like with a leave-in conditioner. If you have shorter hair, you won't need as much of course, but if you have longer hair, you'll appreciate how much came in that sample! I bet I could get 6 or 7 uses out of this sample, pretty generous!

I use about a nickel size on the front area, and a nickel size on the back area of my head. BUT, I use this product in conjunction with another Devacurl gel, so I use a bit less, and use this for additional hold and softness of my curls. The combination seems to work really well. Oh, and a little either flexible hold hair spray from deva to finish it so curls stay in tact. Hope this helps.

The sample I received was extremely generous...I was able to get 3 full uses out of it for long (well past shoulder-length) hair.

you need a good amount. i would use that whole sample size on my fine, curly hair (longer than shoulder length).

In my opinion, it's always trial and error depending on your hair type..
If you have fine hair be very careful! Maybe you can try it out on a day that you don't have to go out just in case you get too much.. I have very thick hair and used the entire sample.. Good luck! ;)

I have fine wavy hair. The sample is very generous and I got 6 uses out of it. My hair is layered and just past my chin. Smell is great and leaves your hair without that waxy feeling that many styling products have. If your hair is longer and thicker you will still get at least 4 uses. I am now on my second purchase of this cream and will continue to buy. Love it!

Question
For straight hair?
I have thick stick straight hair and it seems like no matter what I do, it won't hold a curl. Would this product help with that?

It might, if you put this in your hair, let it dry, and then use a heat-curling tool like rollers or an iron. My sister has super-straight hair and she always got it to curl by spraying her hair with hairspray first, then using an iron. This product has a weaker hold than hairspray (great for naturally wavy hair), so using the Ultra Defining Gel might be a better bet.

No, I don't think this would help straight hair to hold a curl.

These products are not suited at all for non-curly or wavy hair. I think it would probably just weigh your hair down. They're actually formulated for specific types of curls, and this product is for use on very curly, Shirley Temple type of curls. Maybe trying a curling iron with the right setting spray to keep the curl would be a better option.

Do Not Know. Get your hands on a sample. The samples are very generous.
Give it a go. I am in love with it. I have straight hair that curls easily. Just get that generous sample. Good luck.

Question
Wavy Hair?
Would this product work on wavy hair? I've been using the Sally Hershberger Finishing Cream for Wavy Hair but it's hard to find, and wanted to know if this would work. I usually put a small amount in my hands and then 'scrunch' it into the ends of my hair to define the waves and take away the frizz. My hair is blonde, relatively fine and has loose waves.

Thanks!

I have curly wavy hair, and love this product! Someone wrote it is a little crunchy if they let hair air dry. I always let my hair air dry. My hair is never crunchy. That only occurs with me, if I use too, much of the product. Last time I washed my hair I was out of this. Hair did not have the same shine and curl, as with DevaCurl. Just love! :-)

Yes! The DevaCurl line is technically for all hair types, but specifically made for curls and waves. Just use a light hand when applying since it is a very thick, moisturizing product.

Absolutely! I used to use the same product as you and have been really happy with Deva Curl instead.

I use this product the same way you mentioned... I scrunch it into my hair and and either diffuse it or let it air dry. If you let it air dry it can be a bit crunchy (as you would expect when adding product and air drying) but then I scrunch it again and it softens right up. This is the only curl cream I'll use because it gives the right amount of hold without weighing down.

I also have fine blonde wavy hair and I've been using this product for 2 years now-love it, and so will you! The trick to avoid stickiness and crunch waves is to rub it between your palms to warm it a bit-then finger wave it through your hair-just scrunch the spots you want to look extra wavy. It has a fresh clean smell which is an added attraction.

can you still use heat tools with this?
can you still use a curling iron on your hair after using this or would that seriously damage your hair?

We suggest letting the product completely dry on your hair before using heat tools.
