I think it is very expensive but I am kind of wanting to go on a more natural hair journey.....

    My hair didn't like any of the Deva products I tried, and I didn't like the scent or the price. But lots of people love that line!

    I only ever used Devacurl products when I got a Devacut and they used it in the salon. While I would say they stylist did a good job and my hair looked good with it, I also did not like the smell, price, and thought it was too goopy. However, as @jeepcurlygurl said, it has its following and people who used them are very happy with it. But if your goal is to go a natural route, you have other option.

    I love most of the things I have tried so far.  If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the No Poo Decadence. The B'Leave in would be second.  The products are expensive, so I'm trying to figure out what I absolutely must have in the line.

    Others: ACV rinses and protein treatments

    I've used quite a few of the products.  The original One Condition  is a must-have for me.  No other conditioner has ever made my hair feel as good as that one does.  I like the low-poo (the original formula), but I don't think the price is worth the product.  I'm still searching for another low-poo.  The Ultra Defining Gel works great in the summer - not so much in the winter.

    I do not like the decadence or delight lines.  I don't like the Wavemaker.  The hair spray is awful.  Sometimes I like the B'Leave In, sometimes I don't.

    I think it's worth trying if you're interested, but don't expect to love everything.

    I use Deva sometimes as it is highly accessible. I can't buy my regular products locally so if I forget to place an order and run out... I run over to the beauty supply place and grab some DevaCurl.

    I only use the delight line as I find the rest heavy. I have never tried the gels (I am a KCCC addict, that's another brand) but my hair will tolerate the low poo as long as I wash twice. I cannot cannot cowash with Deva. I do like the wavemaker.

    I am like @bomega I only use them when I get a DevaCut at the salon and they use it on me. The Deva No Poo makes my head itch and burn horrible so the salon uses Ouidad Cleansing Conditioner (sorry, I dont remember the exact name). I dont have issues with the other DevaCurl products they use. They are just too expensive for my taste and I dont care for the smell. 
    Been doing GC method on and off for years but finally commited after my first DevaCut on Dec 2, 2017.

    I have tried the gel and even tough it smells very nice, it really dries my hair and I dont think it does much for styling... :/ good luck!

    The only Deva product I used was Wavemaker. I didn't like it; it made my hair dry, frizzy, and sticky. I haven't tried any of the other Deva products because they are generally heavy on protein, and my hair is protein sensitive.

    If you do plan on buying it, see for sample sizes as it would be a lot cheaper than actually buying the whole line along with the stylers.

    I love DevaCurl on my 3a/3b hair. My favorite product is the Light Defining Gel and I use the Curly Girl method of styling. The products are less expensive on Amazon than at a salon.
