"Ask a curly girl about her hair and she'll tell you about her life." So says DevaCurl, a company dedicated to products and services for curly-haired women. But recently, thousands of curly girls have been telling DevaCurl about their lives after using DevaCurl products—lives of scalp damage, hair loss, and bald spots.
Users of DevaCurl products are now suing DevaCurl. Users allege that DevaCurl did not warn them about the full dangers of using the line of products, including the risks of hair damage. If you or a loved one used DevaCurl products and experienced hair damage, you may be able to seek compensation and send a message to companies that hair care products should not cause hair loss.
What is DevaCurl?
DevaCurl is a company and a line of hair care products marketed towards curly-haired women. The company started as a salon in 1994. In 2002, it introduced "No-Poo Original," a product pitched as an alternative to shampoo for curly hair. The company has since expanded its product line to include both "no-poo" and "low-poo" cleansers, a variety of conditioners, and other hair treatments and tools. In 2019, DevaCurl expected sales for the year to top $100 million.
What are the reported side effects of using DevaCurl products?
Thousands of users of DevaCurl products have reported that the products caused damage to their hair or scalp. Users report
- Scalp irritation
- Excessive shedding
- Hair loss
- Hair thinning
- Hair breakage
Nearly 50,000 people have joined a Facebook support group for "Hair Damage & Hair Loss from DevaCurl," and YouTube influencers have disavowed DevaCurl, claiming that they've lost hair after using the company's products and urging others to stop using the products.
What does the DevaCurl hair loss lawsuit say?
DevaCurl product users have filed a lawsuit claiming amongst other things, that the company failed to warn them about the dangers of hair loss associated with the product. Plaintiffs claim that the company should have more rigorously tested their products and warned users that hair loss could result. If the company had adequately warned them that the hair care products could cause hair loss, plaintiffs say that they would not have bought the products. Instead, they say, the company marketed their products as gentle and safe.
How has DevaCurl responded to the lawsuits?
The company maintains that their products are safe, but said that they were committed to founding a "Professional Curl Care Council." On February 11, 2020, the company issued a statement on their website, saying that consumers can "feel confident using DevaCurl because all our products have gone through rigorous testing that has confirmed they are safe and adhere to both quality assurance and regulatory standards." While the company is not advising consumers to stop using their products, it is providing refunds. DevaCurl has otherwise declined to comment on the active litigation against them.
