Devacurl ruined my hair

Long time no post and I apologize.

For almost the last year, I have been dealing with DevaCurl damage and I haven’t wanted to discuss it on my platform but I figured I should say something as my experiences may help someone else.

I first noticed the symptoms of deva damage when I began having multiple “bad hair days” in a row. Now like everyone else, I experience bad hair days, but with the tlc I give my hair, my “bad” hair days are never that BAD. My hair looked brittle and straw-like, almost like someone sucked the life out of my previously soft pillow-like coils. They now looked like I had no idea how to care for the hair I’ve spent years babying like a newborn child. At the time I was working a stressful job and was in the search of a new one, so my attention quickly shifted from my hair to “more important things”. But about a month later when I noticed my entire nape had broken off, I began to realize this was a bigger problem then I’d thought.

Here it looks like I have a devacut but my nape had just broken off

My hair that should’ve been mid-back length, was now barely grazing my shoulders. By this point, the news about DevaCurl came out and I had already thrown every trace of their products away. But the damage was done. I used DevaCurl very heavily in 2019 and the products that were suspected to be the contaminated were the ones I used the most. (Lucky me!)

I apologize if any of you took my recommendations and used DevaCurl. I do not recommend their products and suggest you all discontinue use if you have not already.

I will be revamping my growth journey and taking you guys along as I begin to repair and regrow my hair. I (My hair is already making a huge turnaround and I’m excited to share what I’ve been doing!) I hope you all will stay tuned to my posts and if you’re interested, subscribe to my Youtube channel.

If you would like to hear more about the partnership I had with Deva and more pictures of the damage, I will link my Youtube video down below.

Thank you all for staying subscribed and although this is an unfortunate situation I look forward to going on this journey with you guys again!

  1. Am so sorry my dear, I dealt with something similar(was a product junkie and ruined my hair) but your hair will make it back, and do keep us updated, we fall but we rise always❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️


      1. For sure dear and can’t wait to see your progress, I did research and looked on YouTube and warned some of my friends about it as well so they stay away. Thank you for speaking out and letting us know.

  2. Wow. This is a huge difference in health and length while using DevaCurl. I am a natural hair influencer and received an affiliation partnership with DevaCurl yet I have never used their products. The moment I planned to use them luckily I came across many women stating that their products were breaking their hair off. And this was coming from African American women and Caucasian women. I guess it’s time for me to do away with that partnership, I don’t want to recommend something to my subscribers and followers that will place harm to their hair that they’ve been growing for years.

    Thanks for this post and the insight, I hope your beautiful curls fully recover from this.


  3. Thank you so much for sharing your negative experience even after a partnership with the brand. Most bloggers only share the positive. This definitely will help others make an informed decision not just based on the product claims. Your hair will bounce back no doubt
