Four fellow YouTubers decided to try out one product to see how it would affect their different hair types and here are the results. The YouTubers who collabed together for this idea were:
- RisasRizos, 3a/3b
- DiscoCurls, 3b/3c
- LivingWithOsa, 4c
- CurlyPenny, 2c
This styling cream is packed with hydrolyzed jojoba protein to strengthen the hair cuticle, rosemary extract to give the scalp and hair an amazing mint sensation and aroma, and panthenol which is a lubricating emollient. To top it all off, it smells like a tropical island. As we all know, all DevaCurl products are 100% sulfate free, silicone free and paraben free, what’s not to love about Lorraine Massey’s creations?
What RisasRizos thought
Rocio was actually the one who gathered everyone for this collab, so let’s give her the honor of sharing her experience with the product first!
The first thing she points out is that the bottle has a pump that you can’t open, so whatever amount you get out of the bottle, you will either have to use it all or wipe some on your towel (since you cannot get the leftover cream back inside the bottle). It’s a small manufacturing detail, but it’s worth mentioning.
Rocio was able to use the cream in many different ways--she used it alone, cocktailed with other creams, applied it on wet hair, as well as on dry hair.
In general, Rocio liked the results the cream gave her, but she did not like it mixed with gel because it caused her hair to become crunchy. The cream gave her curls shine, definition and moisture.
What DiscoCurls thought
Rochelle shared that her hair is fine and is sensitive to heavy creams, butters and oils. They cause her curls to be weighed down easily. The cream gave Rochelle favorable results. The cream acted like a gel for her fine curls and she did not notice any limpness with using it.
This styler gave her a lot of shrinkage, which she thinks works great if she wants to rock a small fro for the day. At the end it gave her small, tight curls that looked amazing when shaken and picked out.
What LivingWithOsa thought
Osa immediately mentioned that the product has a high content of glycerin. As soon as she saw this ingredient she knew her hair would revert to its original shrinkage if she attempted to stretch her hair with the cream. However, for the sake of the review for the product review, Osa used the cream alone. She did her regular wash and go routine, twisted her hair with the cream, then put perm rods on the ends of the twists.
The cream gave her non-sticky, non-greasy and non-crunchy results, which she adored. Overall, she liked the cream, but wished it had more slip and a lesser tendency to flake.
What I thought (Curly Penny)
The first thing I liked was that the cream was sulfate free, silicone free, and paraben free. I also like that the cream has protein, protein helps to give me more curl definition. I used about a dime size after my shower, but once my hair dried I noticed that I should have used more.
The cream is lightweight, moisturizing, and it gives great hold. It worked like a creamy gel. Overall, the cream gave me moisture, definition and volume so I liked the cream for my sharp s waves.
