"Heaven in Hair" is a big name to live up to.

Naturally, with a name like that I wanted to know if DevaCurl Heaven in Hair Intense Moisture Treatment would provide my hair with the intense moisture and conditioning its name suggests or if I’d end up being disappointed. Heaven in Hair is a sulfate-free, paraben free, silicone free and cruelty free product. And I must say...so far, so great!

First 5 ingredients

The first five ingredients of this deep conditioning treatment are water, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl esters and glycol distearate. Water, glycerin and cetearyl alcohol are great for providing moisture and cetyl esters, glycol stearate and cetearyl alcohol are excellent ingredients for creating slip. All in all, after reviewing the ingredients list, I was prepared to be pleased. When it comes right down to it, I was.

First impressions: appearance, scent, consistency

Heaven In Hair has a pearlescent, pale green color. It is thick and creamy and glides easily between the fingers. It leaves behind a slight waxy residue when rinsed from the fingers which I have used as an indicator in the past to determine how much slip a product is likely to have. I could tell by rubbing the product between my fingers that this product would have amazing slip. The smell is very artificial and is my least favorite thing about the deep conditioner.

Where to get it

I received this product as part of a care package from NaturallyCurly (this review is not sponsored). It is available from Shop.NaturallyCurly.com and the usual online stores and retails at around $25 for an 8 oz. jar. That's pricey for the curly girl on a budget, but it is a good investment if looking for a luxury product that you pull out when you really need the big guns.

Yes, it’s an expensive product, but it also spreads really well, so a little goes a long way.

How I used it

Typically, I use a traditional conditioner to detangle before I deep condition my hair.  I’ve done this because no matter how moisturizing most deep conditioners are, they usually do not provide me with enough slip to detangle my type 4 hair with reasonable ease. When using Heaven In Hair I skipped my regular conditioner and went straight to deep conditioning after I shampooed my hair.

Conclusion: will I replace this one when it's empty?

I absolutely loved this moisture treatment. It has a great deal of slip and made detangling my hair very easy. Usually, I have to detangle my hair in at least ten sections. I was able to do so with only six sections when using this product, which meant way less time in the shower. I also got through each section in record time and before my fingers started pruning in the shower.

In addition to reducing my detangling time this product also left my hair feeling very moisturized and very soft. This is definitely an item I will keep in my regimen. Yes, it’s an expensive product, but it also spreads really well, so a little goes a long way. Even on my tightly coiled and dry hair and with my tendency to be heavy handed.
