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.

    Great product! It defines my curls and prevents frizz on my thick, curly hair. I apply this first and then a curling cream for the best results.

      Comments about DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel Maximum Hold No-Crunch Styler:

      This gel is like no other gel! It brings my curls to life. I now have big juicy Lucious curls !!! It doesn't leave my hair feeling stiff , it has a soft flexibility. The only con is that I have to use a ton of product to get the best effect, (and I have a lot of thick curly hair) so I go through one bottle pretty quickly this . I apply when I am still in the shower and my hair is still nearly drenched, apply generously to sections to make sure all strands are covered. Then let your hair dry or use diffuser and let your hair do its thing! Touch the curls as little as possible, to allow them to curl their own shape This method has worked best for me.

          As noted, I moved to Deva products when my former product was discontinued. Used to Use Deva Curl and then moved to Arc Angell, which has more hold. I use the Deva throughout my hair for volume and hold, then I use a tiny bit of Pureology Nourishing Nectar over the top layer to give it a smoother look. I then blow dry with diffuser. This is my best approximation at the old product which had a strong hold and also reduced frizz.

            Deva curl products are the best! I threw out my straightener months ago because I love how these products make my hair feel! The gel is strong holding the waves, dries hard, then you run your fingers through and have silky soft hair!! And must-buy with this is the deva curl conditioner. More moisture =less frizz. Highly recommend!

                        A:

                        Great curls start in the shower, so starting with a DevaCurl cleanser and conditioner is a great beginning. Our formulas are highly moisturizing and are 100% Sulfate, Silicone, and Paraben free which means more moisture, less frizz.
                        For cleansing and conditioning, I would highly recommend trying our Original DevaCurl No-Poo cleanser and our DevaCurl One Condition. Our products contain only moisturizing and water soluble botanicals that stimulate, cleanse, rejuvenate and restore curls natural order.

                        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?

                        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.

                        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!
