DevaCurl Haircare Products Class Action Settlement

A Settlement has been reached in a lawsuit against Deva Concepts, LLC (“Defendant”). The Lawsuit alleges that Defendant designed, manufactured and sold DevaCurl haircare products that allegedly caused certain users to suffer personal injury including hair loss, hair damage or scalp irritation. Plaintiffs also asserted that statements made in connection with the marketing of DevaCurl were untrue and misleading. Defendant vigorously denies these allegations and contends that there is no link between hair loss, hair damage or scalp irritation and DevaCurl, and that Defendant did not make any untrue or misleading statements. Liability is disputed in this matter, and DevaCurl has not been proven to cause any damage to users or consumers, nor has it been determined that any advertising of the Products was false or misleading. The makers of DevaCurl stand behind the quality, safety, and formulation of the Products, all of which meet or exceed all applicable safety and quality standards set by the cosmetics industry and confirmed by its independent experts. However, to avoid the cost of a trial, and potential risks for both sides, the Parties have reached a Class Action Settlement, which was preliminarily approved by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on July 30, 2021.
