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 Maximum Hold No-Crunch Styler:

      I decided to buy this product after trying DevaCurl's Wave Maker and findingthat my waves were nonexistent at the end of the day. I am trying to grow out a lot of chemical damage from bleaching and the Wave Maker just wasn't cutting it on my damaged hair. This gel has a stronger hold for my needs without being too much for me. Before I break the cast on my hair it definitely has a "crunch" but it looks wonderful after my hair dries and I scrunch out the cast!

                Used this for a wash and go. It smells great but doesn't really lock in curls the way my much less expensive gel does. ended up having to use other gel mid way through because it wasn't weighing curls down as it should.

                        Was using a different product for curls that put too much product on my hair that made it feel heavy. This one doesn't. I don't have to use as much of this product as the other one. It smells fabulous and doesn't come out greasy. My curls are spectacular, even though I just have wavy hair and scrunch it up as it is drying. I wash my hair at night, let it dry before bed, then style with curling iron where I need to in the am.

                            I use it the way Deva recommendeds - on very wet hair, tipping my head over and scrunching it in. It will make your hair crispy. Let it. And then when it's fully dry gently squeeze to release the crunch.

                                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.

                                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 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.

                              I currently use the no poo and one condition which sometimes weighs my hair down, but if I use the low poo with the one condition it seems dryer. What should I do?

                                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.

                              Which of the gels are best for medium coarse hair that forms ringlet curls on the top layer and softer curls underneath. I'd like to get the underneath layer to form a tighter curl. Thanks!

                                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!
