I only used this shampoo (along with DevaCurl One Condition) a handful of times but I couldn't continue. I have red dyed hair over natural blonde, oily roots and dry ends (mid back length). I found it impossible to get my scalp clean and used about 1/4 of the bottom each time trying. It dried my hair out severely and had spotted a few split ends (I've not had them before) even along with the One Condition conditioner.
I am also not a fan of the smell, it reminds me of bathroom/toilet cleaner.
I had it shipped to AUS from the US so I really wanted it to be my HG shampoo. I will keep searching.

I wash my short, curly (3A), color-treated hair once or twice a week. DevaCurl Low Poo effectively removed product (gel) from my hair. This isn't a very moisturizing shampoo, so if your hair is dry, you'll likely need a moisturizing conditioner.

Worked fine the first time. Made my hair soft and clean. It took 3 days for the first zit to appear on my hairline. By day 5 my whole forehead looked like a teenager with severe acne. I've never had such an awful spotty reaction to anything. I used this I n conjunction with the One Conditioner that goes with it. Washed my hair and I could even feel zits on my scalp. Ew.
UPDATE DAY 6: I thought I could just leave it until next wash my it's the next day after I washed my hair with this and One Conditioner (the shampoo never felt like it washed out of my hair properly even though I washed my hair for over 30 minutes). Today though, if I thought yesterday's zits were bad today everywhere I had touched my scalp/hair then rested my hands (chin, chhek, forehead, neck) there were zits coming up. I could actually see them on my scalp sooooo of course I had to rewash my hair. I just used a cheap drug store shampoo/conditioner and I could see the bumps starting to dissapear as soon as my hair was dry. Weird that a $3.99 shampoo worked better than one that costs over double that.

chris00111 gave a very accurate review. My hair is super curly in places, and wavy in others. This shampoo is nothing special, actually, it is pretty awful. It might seem nice after 1 use, because it is something new, it is sulfate free, blah blah blah. HOWEVER, it isn't cleansing, and won't remove product from your hair. After about two weeks (I wash my hair approximately every three days, but condition daily), the product buildup is so bad, you'll need a clarifying shampoo to get rid of it. For me, this product was a total waste of money. I will not re-purchase.
UPDATE: I continued to use this shampoo, and grew to really like it! So much so, that I'm on my third bottle. You just have to learn how to use it. Personally, I use a generous amount of product, as I have A LOT of hair. Once I mastered cleansing with this shampoo, I am left with soft, clean, shiny curls :) Of course, I still use a clarifying shampoo about once every two to three weeks. I am sure there are similar products for cheaper out there, but this is easy for me right now. Really glad I gave it a chance.

HIGHLIGHTED WAVY BLONDE HAIR.
this product made my hair fall out in clumps after the third wash i now have obvious areas where waves are only 4 inches long. i had no frizz with this product but the texture of my hair is like straw and its just not worth the messy layers i now have.

I use this shampoo in my regular rotation of products. Really does a nice job of getting rid of build-up but doesn't leave hair feeling stripped of all its moisture. My curls always feel wonderfully soft and look fabulous.

I have wavy hair that tends to be oily at the scalp, but dry at the ends (especially since I like to straighten my hair).
I wanted to move to a sulfate free, more "natural" shampoo and also something to moisturize my curls (sometimes I like to go curly). I decided to try this. BLAH.
Lets do positives first:
My hair was hydrated and my curls were crazy nice. Which is why it got 2 lippies.
the SMELL. OMG horrible. I hated it
It was so thin, that I had to use a TON to get any on my scalp.
After about 2 weeks of every other day use, the product buildup was so bad that my scalp was itchy and I had flakes. Gross.
My hair just felt awful.
I will not be rebuying.

OK, when the SA at Green Apple told me that I would love this shampoo, I trusted her judgement. She then said I should use the devacurl towl with it as well. I also purchased the hair spray gel as I don't like a crusty curl look from thick gel. Soft and full is what I was going for.
So that evening I had done some reading here and had almost convinced myself I was going to hate this line and I should not have waisted my money and I totally had got a non-stellar product. But I used the shampoo anyways (without even conditioner as it usually weighs me down), I was shocked, my curls were amazing. I normally have wavy spiral curls, not botcelli style but a bit looser and they are done by the end of the day. I have fine hair but a lot of it and I usually get greasy during the day having combination oily foreheadd.
So back to my first day using it, my curls looked awesome and the towel was the coolest thing I have ever used. When I came out of the shower I even brushed my hair straight but that towel made the curls unbelievable. I have now boughten the foam mouse and the mist-er which I LOVE the smell.
I was also worried that the shampoo would not clean my hair enough and would not protect my color. I still wash my hair everyday but am very impressed with how full it is (even though i'm due for a long awaited haircut and my hair has been weighing me down up to using this). I can't imagine what will happen once I get my haircut.
I'm going to try the condition and the gel as they are part of the 3 part system. When I saw them I assumed it would be a crusty gel but now that the shampoo has really suprised me, without tons of suds, I'm going to try the gel.
I have tried using Pureology (which weighs me down) and Aveda (which can't compare for curls to this). My next thing is, I'm going to use the shampoo and do my 50s style bob, if my hair is great, even though not in spirals I will give this a 10!

I have Botticelli-type, fine curly hair and I cannot use this product at all. It isn't moisturizing enough for my hair. It removes product very well, and that's the only time I will use it, if I've overdone it with a styling product. I have to use a ton of One Condition conditioner after I use Low Poo. No Poo is a much better product for me.

DevaCurl Low Poo produces ok hair (when I try a shampoo...all other aspects of my routine stay the same from conditioner to stylers to method of drying). But over a few days of continued use, I noticed my scalp getting very itchy and almost hurting (like I pulled my hair too tight)...it literally feels like my "hair hurts".
Needless to say, I am stopping use right now. Apparently I am one of those people who is just not destined to be a DevaCurl user.
