Curl-tastic Giveaway

Monday, March 29, 2010

Let me share with you something, I have curly, thick, long hair and by 23, I thought I had pretty much gotten it under control. Then I moved to France...and it hasn't curled properly in 6 months!

Do you have curly hair? Have you struggled with maintaining it all your life? I do and I have, and I am here to present to you, your solution! Ladies, presenting: DevaFuser. When I heard about this product, I was so intrigued because the design is so original, (and the founder herself has very curly hair) so it perked my interest. Of course after over 2 decades of being promised things for my difficult hair and only being disappointed, I had my doubts. Well the lovely people at Devachan Salons in New York City stand behind their product and dared me to try it...and guess what? IT'S AWESOME! It is hands down the best diffuser I have ever used and it makes my curls look wonderful. I was so excited. But this isn't only an answer to my problems, one lucky (and curly) Embellisher gets to win one of these babies for herself!

In 1988, the Deva line evolved from Lorraine Massey mixing botanical ingredients to find a solution for her own curly hair, her intent was never to revolutionize the curly hair world, but yet that is what DevaCurl is certainly doing.

The DevaFuser’s innovative hand-shape design fits easily underneath curls and uses 360-degree airflow to dry hair from the inside out. Conventional diffusers only allowed the hair to be dried on the surface, creating frizz on the top and leaving hair wet underneath. The DevaFuser gently dries the hair without creating frizz or disturbing the natural curl formation, According to its innovator, Denis DaSilva, using the DevaFuser is simple, “Just attach the DevaFuser to your hairdryer using the Universal Adapter.

Next, gently guide the DevaFuser onto the scalp at the nape, forehead, and temple regions, holding it for two minutes at each position to set the curl. The 360-degree airflow means you no longer have to move the diffuser around. You simply hold the DevaFuser in a couple of places and you have fabulous, frizz-free curls!.” Until now, people with curls had limited options for effectively styling and drying their hair. “Air drying” meant waiting hours until their hair felt dry and even then frizz and limp curls were frequent problems. The use of conventional diffusers often resulted in a dry, frizzy, hard-to-manage “scare-do.” Now, as long as people with curls have a blow dryer, the DevaFuser lets them look forward to a head full of bouncy, beautiful curls.

Depart from the ordinary with this botanically drenched, 100% sulfate free, curl care system. DevaCurl took the “poo” out of shampoo by removing the harsh, dehydrating detergents found in conventional shampoos. Whether your hair is curly, wavy or chemically dehydrated, there’s a DevaCurl product that is right for you. Choose from DevaCurl or DevaCare and enjoy the benefits of shiny, manageable, frizz free curls. With DevaCurl, curly hair is not a trend…it’s a lifestyle.

"You can combat any curly hair conundrum when you embrace your natural hair texture" is the motto Massey lives by that has gotten her here today. From the gentle cleansers and hydrating conditioners, through the complete range of styling products any curly girl who chooses the right combination from the 14 different selections, will become a true believer.
