Product Review: DevaCurl and DevaCare One Condition

Type: conditioner
For: all curly hair types (DevaCare formulated for chemically treated hair)

I’m reviewing these two products together because they share many characteristics that make them One Condition. 

One Condition has a wonderfully luxurious feel to it and moves well through the hair. It rinses well and has remarkable softness.  

The differences…moisture level and an extra ingredient. DevaCare has a higher conditioning concentration, as color treated hair is in a more fragile state and needs a bit of a boost, moisture-wise. DevaCare also has vitamin C, which is a natural sunscreen and anti-oxidant that helps prevent fading.

Now--do you have to use DevaCare if your hair is colored? No. DevaCurl will in no way deplete your hair of moisture or contribute to fading, so if DevaCare feels a bit too moisturizing, DevaCurl might be an option.

Do you have to use DevaCurl if your hair isn’t colored? No. If you have a very dry scalp and your curls tend to the brittle side, DeveCare might be a better choice.

For some, it boils down to scent. Some prefer the lemon-lime fragrance of DeveCurl to the orange notes of DevaCare, and vice versa.

I have been using One Condition for over two years now and have yet to have a problem with build up. I’ve never had a conditioner hold up for that long….a true testament to the quality and perfected formula of the product.

Also remember that BOTH conditioners work as a deep-conditioner if left on for about fifteen minutes, then rinsed with cool water.  Happy conditioning!
