“Joy to the curls” is what the note inside my mystery DevaCurl package said…and when I opened it, JOY it did bring! They had gifted me the limited edition Bright Lights, Big Curls kit which included the new DevaDryer, DevaFuser, Decandance No Poo and One Condition, along with a travel size styling cream. I was beyond ecstatic about this gift and if its even possible to love them more than I do already, well then I do! If you follow me on Instagram, ask for product advice, or have read my Curly Hair Regimen (here) then you know that DevaCurl is definitely on the top of my favorite hair products list. This was an awesome gift!
I’m sure you guys are curious to know how it works or if it was any good…well keep reading to find out my final thoughts on the new DevaDryer and fuser as well as pictures of my results!
The DevaDryer includes the DevaFuser hand, plus a concentrator nozzle. What makes this diffuser so special you ask? The innovative, hand shaped DevaFuser delivers 360-degree airflow to completely surround curls, even at the root which speeds up the drying process. The patented ergonomic design enhances your natural curls or waves, while creating body and lift due to the positioning at the crown. Unlike other diffusers, the gentle drying of the Devadryer and DevaFuser combined gives you a more defined and less frizzy head of curls.
The settings include a cool shot button, temperature, and power/speed button. One of my favorite features on the DevaDryer is that you can choose “cool” as one of the temperature settings. Other diffuser dryers only have the option of a cool shot, which is the button you have to hold down if you want cool air versus heat. However, with the DevaDryer, you have the option of pressing the cool shot button for a quick blast of cold air OR you can actually set it to cool air the whole time you’re using it; without having your finger go numb from having to hold down the button! This is an awesome feature for someone like myself, and here’s why – I usually prefer to let my hair air dry. I try to use as least heat as possible on my hair. However, in the winter I do opt for a diffuser because we all know how long air drying takes us curly folks, and going out with wet hair is not really an option…unless you want icicles for curls. I also use a diffuser to create quick volume when I don’t have the time to do my usual no-heat volume routine (side note: I will be blogging about that routine soon!) Which brings me to the cool setting feature, because I don’t like to use too much heat on my hair constantly, I’ll use the cool setting throughout the whole drying process. I love that they’ve included the choice of a cool setting on the new DevaDryer, this means I don’t have to hold the cool shot button down through the entire process!…After all it is the little things that count! Oh and another big plus is that the dryer is super light weight!
Okay, so now that you know all about the cool features, I’m sure you want to see some results! Am I right?!…Well here are my before and after photos:
On the left is my hair after putting my styling products in and still some what wet (click here to see how I apply my product). Here’s a little tip: Try waiting for your hair to be semi dry before blasting it with a diffuser to prevent frizz from occurring. On the right is my hair after using the DevaFuser, it defiantly gave me defined curls with more volume!
Here’s how I used my DevaFuser to get my results: Flip your head upside down (this will help give you more volume at the roots) and begin to diffuse starting at the ends and lifting it up towards your roots as shown in the photos below. Repeat this step through out your entire head until dried.
Final thoughts: LOVE IT! The devafuser will definitely come in handy for me. I will probably be using it all winter long. I love how it keeps my curl definition and even enhanced it while giving it some volume. It’s easy to use, has useful settings and doesn’t weight a ton!
