Just starting out

I recently started using Deva Curl cleanser and conditioner. I've noticed, though, that my face  chest and back are all breaking out very badly. 

Is this normal in the transition, or is this something that is telling me that this particular product is not for me?

Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum!

    That is not something that is normal for transitioning; it sounds like a reaction to the product. I would look for other products.

    Welcome!  It's a somewhat common reaction to Deva.  I've heard quite a few people say they couldn't use it due to itchiness and such.  Definitely not normal - dump those products and find something else.
