Travel Size Flexible-Hold Hairspray
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.

        It felt kinda watery when I poured it on my hands so I was hesitant that it would work,but was very surprised that it did. If you are looking for hold on your curly hair this is the one. I wish it wouldn't be that expensive that is why I took a star.

                  Wow, so happy I tried this! I'd been using the ultra defining gel, but was looking for more curl/wave definition and frizz control, so I thought this would provide both, and it does! I also put on a little bit of Super Cream through my wet hair before the gel to provide more moisture and finish it with Shea Moisture Curly Hair spray for additional moisture.

                        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.

                    • Q:

                      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?

                        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.

                        For best results, cleanse your hair with DevaCurl No-Poo two to three times a week. Use DevaCurl Low Poo once or twice a month for a more clarifying cleanse.

                        Our gels are based on hold rather than curl type. Light Defining Gel for light hold. Ultra or Arc for firm hold. So in the end, it depends on your styling goals. Hope this helps!

                        You will want a firm hold gel such as Arc or Ultra. Remember to apply in soaking wet hair for best results. Once completely dry, scrunch to release the gel cast.

                    • 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.

                        A:

                        Hi Jay Jay, in the hierarchy of our DevaCurl Gels, both Arc AnGEL and Ultra Defining Gel are firm-hold gels and are quite comparable in hold. What is different is the shape of the curl you get, which is different for everyone. People who use Arc develop a super-loyalty to Arc as do UDG users become superfans of UDG. It's a preference thing, in other words. See which one you love. Try one, then the next.

                        Both Arc AnGEL and Ultra Defining Gel are firm hold gels, while Light Defining Gel is a light hold gel. Arc AnGEL is different from Ultra Defining Gel, as it has a citrus scent, versus Ultra Defining Gel that has a sweet, starfruit scent.
