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'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.

            I like the gel for my curly hair. I do add another product with it as I need more hold than the gel gives. I would like it if the gel had more hold for my big, curly hair.

                hi. so i have 3c, 4a and 4b hair and it's low porosity. the ultra defining gel works fine for my twist outs and it's okay when i do a wash and go, do you think that the arc angel gel will work!

                  Yes, Arc AnGEL is a firm-hold gel that contains UV absorbers and anti-oxidants to protect the longevity of hair color and provide additional protection from sun damage.

              • Q:

                I don't know if I should buy the light defining gel or the strong hold. I used the light defining gel but i pt a lot of it on and It holds good enough but I have to put a lot of it on. Does the maximum hold leave your hair crunchy.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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?

                  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.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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!

              • 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.
