Your Guide to Deva Transformations

The hardest part about rocking your natural curls is the transition. There are hundreds of products to choose from, dozens of techniques, and a ton of natural hair terminology to learn which can make it extremely confusing to know where to start. Today, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about Deva transformations, from products to DevaCuts and even some much-needed words of encouragement.

What is a Deva Transformation?

If you find your curls damaged, lifeless, or you’re just overall unhappy with them, it’s time for a transformation. Essentially, getting a Deva transformation means quitting shampoo and finding your perfect routine so you can fully learn how to take care of your newly rejuvenated curls.

A Deva transformation also means completely switching to products that are formulated without sulfates, silicones, and parabens to get the most out of your curls.

Why should I do it?

Transitioning into products that are good for your curls can make a huge difference in their health. By using products with only good for you ingredients, you can ensure that your curls are the best they can possibly be.

Keep in mind that you won’t achieve perfect curls overnight. After trimming off breakage and switching over to DevaCurl products, it may take 1-2 months before you see results. It can be time consuming and frustrating at times, but the end result is always worth it. Trust us!

Where do I start?

The best place to start is at the salon. Getting a DevaCut when you’re looking to transform your curls is key and can make such a huge difference in the health of your hair. If this is your first DevaCut, check this out for more information and how to prepare. When you’re with your stylist, make sure to ask questions and get more information about how to keep up with caring for your curls. They can help you find your perfect routine and make sure you choose the best products.
