How to prep for your first DevaCut

Your stylist will cut your curly hair while it's dry, and in its natural state. Arrive at the salon with your curls conditioned, detangled, dried, and un-styled (no twist-outs, braids, curling or flat irons or any other manipulation). Let your hair hang loosely - accessories like ponytail holders can disrupt your curl pattern. If you're currently using products with sulfates, silicones, or heavy oils, do your best to avoid them for one to two weeks before your booking. Ditching those ingredients will make your hair softer, more hydrated and more defined, which will allow the stylist to see your true curl type. 

If you have any questions, please give us a call.
