        I apply the gel, then brush it through my hair. I then make bologna curls and let air dry. Once dry, I scrunch the curls to soften and finger through the bologna curls.

          Works wonderfully on freshly shampooed hair and then again to freshen up the look the next day with a little added moisture and hair dryer.

              It has been a month since I started using DevaCurl products and I just love them. I finally found a line of products that detangles and control freeze. It is just perfect for curly hair.

                  I have fine curly hair. I tend to use mousses versus gels, but since it is summer and humid, I thought the extra control would be appropriate. Based on the great reviews, I expected to like this stuff. I used a generous amount, but not too much. It seemed to weigh down my curls, and my hair felt stiff and dry once dried. When i smoothed out the crunchiness, I was left with weighted-down waves. returned the product.

                    Didn't think I would become a convert to Deva Curl but have been pleasantly surprised. I now have several of their products and don't plan to go back to the "regular" shampoos & conditioners.

                      Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

                      I recently decided to embrace my curls and stop blow drying my hair straight. I was introduced to this product by a Deva certified stylist. There are many bad reviews, but I feel it is because people are not using it the right way.

                      1st you have to apply this to soaking wet hair. You have to play around with the amount your specific hair needs. It's really trial and error. In order to avoid frizz and drying out your curly hair you cannot shampoo it everyday and you need to heavily condition it. When rinsing out my conditioner, I do not rinse it 100% out. Next I apply a leave in conditioner, then the gel, focusing on my roots at the crown because this is where I frizz. I apply in three sections. Next I flip my hair upside down and scrunch (you should hear a squishing sound) to work the product into my hair. Next, I apply a cream product. After, I soak up a bit of the wetness with a TSHIRT, not a towel. After, I clip my hair in different sections so it will not get frizzy. I have done this at night and woken up with amazing curls. It's not very comfortable to sleep but I don't do it every night. With any curly products, its just trial and error to see what works for you. Good luck!

                        So my hairstylist recommended this product and I had heard some good things about it so I got a sample size if this and the No Frizz Volumizing foam. Let me say, I have long, thick, color treated, 3a hair. I DID use the product per the directions on the package and as my stylist explained. Because my hair is thick and naturally dry, I need to use a lot of it a time to define my curls and give some type of hold. If I use enough product for this to work however, it leaves a residue on my hair that gets hard, sticky, and causes my hair to tangle. Yes, even after re-fluffing. I am so disappointed with this but glad I only got the trial size. Maybe this product works better for fine curly hair.

                              Yes! From DevaCurl:
                              "Once hair is permed, it is considered curly and must be treated with the same care as naturally curly hair. Moisture is the key to success with curls so the more dehydrated, the more we encourage using our botanically infused and very moisturizing cleansers, conditioners and styling products."

                              Light Defining Gel has a lighter hold that works best for curly and super curly hair, while Ultra Defining Gel has a strong hold that works best for wavy/slightly curly hair.
