DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel Maximum Hold No-Crunch Styler is a maximum hold, extra- moisturizing formula that sends frizz packing and defines your curl shape. The unique formula, made with chamomile, lemongrass and orange peel extract, keeps curls smooth and soft for the long haul. The effervescent Orange Blossom fragrance creates a happy citrus sensation. Great for wavy, curly, and super curly hair!

Rub gel between palms. Tilt head forward then scrunch gel all over very wet curls in an upward motion. Use the DevaTowel to soak up excess water and speed up air-drying time. Now hands off! Once curls are completely dry, shake at the root and gently scrunch upward again to soften the firm cast. You'll get touchable, crunch-free curls that look and feel moisturized.

        Comments about DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel:

        I really love this gel. My hair is a mix of waxy and curly hair, so it's not easy to find a product that will keep everything together. It definitely does not leave a crunchy look and/or feel to it. Sometimes, it doesn't hold well, but I think its my type of hair or the way I apply it that particular day. Because part of my hair is wavy, I need to diffuse it to give it more style. For first-time buyers, I would recommend purchasing the 12 oz. bottle first.

          Comments about DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel:

          I have type 4 hair and this works GREAT for twist outs and leaves hair with pretty shine, nice smell and light silky hold. It's not good for a wash n go on Type 4 hair as the hold is too tooo tooooooo light. It won't clump your curls at all. I think for wash n go it's probably best on Type 2/3 hair. Yet I love it for my twistouts or braidouts and even roller sets. It's lovely and light.

              Comments about DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel:

              I'm still in search for a mostly all natural gel that gives me the desired look, particularly no frizz and adding some "weight" to my short 3c/4a hair. I've seen demos on YouTube, similar hair textures but their hair was much longer. So it's not necessarily a bad product but if I'm going to use some THAT lightweight there's other gels that are all natural and more reasonably priced.

                    A:

                    All of our gels create a moisture-protective barrier (we call it the Curl Cast) that sets the curls' shape during the drying process and prevents frizz while the hair dries. While the hold is strong, the hair is left soft, supple and defined, and will not leave a crunchy or wet look once the Curl Cast is scrunched and released.

                    Arc AnGel for Firm Hold and UV protection – Great for long lasting definition and great for chemically treated curls. Light Defining Gel for weightless hold – if you have wavy or fine hair, it gives you just enough hold without weighing your curls down.

                  I use low poo and the conditioner for my 3c natural curls and style with Arc gel and soft hold cream. I leave a bit of the conditioner in my hair from the midlrngth to the ends as a leave in. What order should I use the soft styling cream and the arc gel in? The gel seems to dry my hair out and I use the cream after? Should I use the cream more like a leave in conditioner?

                    A:

                    Set It Free Moisture Lock Spray. It adds nourishment, shine and bounce to thirsty curls. It locks in moisture for those that need extra hydration, and fights frizz. It's great to use a finishing spray to seal in moisture or a second day refresher. You can also use it before the Arc AnGel for added nourishment.

                • Q:

                  A while back I purchased a 12 ounce bottle of DevaCurl Arc Angel and really liked how it left my tightly curled hair manageable and fizz free. I was so impressed with the product I recently purchased a 32 ounce pump bottle of Arc Angel. The product I bought in the pump bottle is totally different. It is darker in color and is of a much thicker, almost glue like consistency. It is also difficult to apply to my hair. Why would there be such a difference in these two bottles if they are labeled as the same product? Thank you for your help.
