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 really like this product. I have really bad frizz and highly porous hair, and this one has done the best of all gels I've tried. I have it 4 stars because I feel like it could be a little better and it does dry my hair more than I like, but it's still really great.

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

      Although this is "maximum" hold, it is very lightweight with about medium(ish) hold. It's not bad, but definitely not maximum hold. I pair this with the supercream in soaking wet hair, and while it does help to add a little more definition and hold, it's not as much as I would have liked. I still have a bit of frizz as well so it didn't really help with that either. The smell however is really nice- smells just like Tropicana orange juice lol.
      I would recommend, but not to someone who needs a lot of hold.
      (Btw I have 2b/2c hair that is fairly thick)

                This gel is amazing. Yes, it does slightly crunch up after it dries. But after "breaking the cast" as devacurl puts it, it leave my curls soft and defined. I'm so glad I decided to try it out.

                    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!

                        Hi!
                        Can this be used on fine wavy hair ? I have tried several different stylers within the Devacurl brand and so far I haven't found the winner. I want it to hold the wave I have but not weigh my hair down.
                        Thanks

                          A:

                          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. You may want to try the DevaCurl WaveMaker, it contains a blend of moringa seed and passion flower extracts which gives consistent waves and frizz control for finer or wavy hair types.

                      • Q:

                        I have 3a hair. I am looking to purchase devacurl products but I'm not sure how intense I should go with these products. It seems the conditioner, shampoo, and defining gel have levels of intensity. My main concerns are to tame the frizziness, more definition in my curls since they tend to be more loose than I prefer, and some moisture since my hair can be super dry and brittle.

                          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.
                          For styling I would highly recommend our DevaCurl Styling Cream, this botanically infused cream conditions, enhances and defines curls. It provides natural hold, humidity resistance and leaves curls moisturized and frizz free.

                          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.

                          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.
