If you or a loved one are among the tens of thousands of consumers who have experienced hair loss, bald spots, thinning, frizzing, scalp issues or other damage following use of the DevaCurl hair products, Esensten Law can provide you with individualized, experienced legal representation.



Hair damage and hair loss can be devastating physically and emotionally, negatively impacting self-esteem and confidence. No one should suffer such losses; and those who have should recover for the physical, emotional and monetary damages they have sustained.

There are currently class action lawsuits regarding DevaCurl, however those lawsuits typically provide limited recovery that does not fully consider each individual situation.  We provide individualized claims outside the class action which have the potential for much greater monetary recoveries.

The attorneys at Esensten Law have substantial experience obtaining favorable results for consumers who have been injured due to defective hair products. We have obtained an aggregate of millions of dollars in settlements from some of the most well-known hair product manufacturers and distributors.

No one needs to face a devastating hair injury alone. Contact Esensten Law for experienced, compassionate and individual attention
