My precious curl pattern has changed. My roots were so tight and curly and now they lay limp. That’s why the release of DevaCurl Buildup Buster couldn’t have come at a better time.

In a recent article I explained how pregnancy has changed my hair. The increase in length and appearance of thicker hair have been fabulous--but one change, however, has been so disrespectful. My precious curl pattern has changed. My roots were so tight and curly and now they lay limp. That’s why the release of DevaCurl’s Buildup Buster couldn’t have come at a better time. Their innovative new product is a game changer due to the fact that they use a micellar technology to gently cleanse the scalp and hair of product buildup. So, what does that mean for me? A serious wakeup call for my curls.

What is micellar water?

Does the word ‘micellar’ sound familiar to you? That is because in recent years, a wave of skincare brands have released micellar waters in their lines. “Micellar water takes its name from micelles, tiny round balls of cleansing [oil] molecules that float in the water," according to beauty experts at La Roche-Posay. These cleansing waters are gentle enough for sensitive skin and effective in removing all traces of makeup while cleansing the skin. The beauty of micellar waters: they require no rinsing afterward.

This same technology has been applied to DevaCurl Buildup Buster, a micellar water cleansing serum. Buildup Buster is a no-to-low lather cleansing serum that gently removes buildup from hard water, product, and the environment without stripping hair of the moisture it needs. It contains abyssinian seed oil and jojoba esters to moisturize and soothe the scalp. It is free of sulfates, parabens, silicones, paraffin, mineral oil, phthalates, DEA/MEA/TEA.

How to use DevaCurl Buildup Buster

Buildup Buster can be used in lieu of your traditional cleanser weekly or as needed. Start by rinsing the hair well and then use the needle-nose tip to target application throughout the scalp. Massage the scalp well and work it through the mid-lengths and ends. Rinse and then apply your favorite conditioner to detangle and seal in moisture. Finish up by rinsing thoroughly.

How it made my hair feel

My curls love the original DevaCurl Styling Cream so after towel drying, I section my hair and apply it throughout my curls. Then, I use a diffuser to dry my hair and follow up with a pick. My final result is a head full of bouncy curls and a major improvement to my curl pattern at the roots.

Who this is for?

Curls that are lackluster and weighed down from product buildup. It’s also a great alternative for those that don’t like the scent from an apple cider vinegar rinse. If you are using a clarifying shampoo that is stripping your hair then rest assured that Buildup Buster will be gentle, effective and have a fresh scent.
