Curly Hair Care: Why A Healthy Scalp Is The Foundation of Bouncy, Luscious Locks

It seems even “Devas” need a little help...

In case you haven’t heard, or there is currently a class-action lawsuit happening against a popular brand name line of hair products called DevaCurl.

These products are aimed towards girls with curly hair, as they claim their products help curls  “look and feel healthy, conditioned, soft, defined, shiny, and frizz-free.”

Unfortunately, numerous girls have shared horror stories of "scalp irritation, excessive shedding, hair loss, thinning, breakage and/or balding during normal use," per the Manhattan Federal court suit.

In fact, a hairdresser even claimed that the hair cuticle had been fried, something you would expect to see with an incorrect bleach application. 

We’re not here to put anyone down, but again, this type of story solidifies the importance of using clean, natural ingredients, especially on your vulnerable scalp.

A healthy scalp is key to a head full of bouncy, luscious curls, so we thought we’d share a few of our top, all natural scalp boosting tips!
