S'wavy Curls



You know you have s'wavy curls if you have:

  • Hair that seems straight but could be encouraged to wave
  • A natural shine
  • A slight bend at the ends of your hair depending on the length
  • Hair that holds its shape when layered
  • Curls that fall vertically
  • A low to no frizz factor
  • A spring factor of 1 to 2 inches- (natural curl to curl pulled to it's full length

Embracing your curls begins with Deva 3-Step: Cleanse. Hydrate. Define. No matter what your curl type is, whether s'wavy, wavy, botticelli or corkscrew, doing the Deva 3-Step will reveal naturally gorgeous, frizz free curls.

STEP 1: DevaCurl No-Poo or Low-Poo OR DevaCare No-Poo or Low-Poo
STEP 2: DevaCurl One Condition or DevaCare One Condition
STEP 3: DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel or DevaCare Arc AnGEL
