        This item isn't worth the $ you need to use way to much to get any hold for my curly 3b hair which doesn't make this product cost effect at all. I'd say skip it

          Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

          I shampoo twice per week with the Deva Curl No-Poo as recommended, then use the conditioner and gel as demonstrated on the Deva Curl website. Between shampoos I rinse my hair completely and apply the conditioner and gel as demonstrated on the Deva Curl website. I use an old t-shirt to blot and squeeze water from my hair - - I have completely stopped using a towel on my hair at all. It makes a HUGE difference with frizzies. The Arc AnGEL is a product that I will use when I need a stronger hold. There is a bit more of a crunchiness to the cast that sets up on the hair. I went back to the light hold gel for daily use and save the Arc AnGEL for those days I can't leave my hair to chance

          Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

          I have naturally curly shoulder length hair and no time in the morning to spend an hour styling it, so I love how easy this product is to use. I use a quarter size amount right after I shower on damp to wet hair and then let my hair air dry. I usually wash my hair at night, apply the gel, let it air dry, pull it into a loose pony at the top of my head and then in the morning I pull the pony out, flip my head over and carefully run my fingers through my hair and scrunch my curls to release the product. It will feel crunchy until you do this, but once you scrunch the curls, it releases the product and your curls feel soft and look great. I only use this product 1 or 2 times a week, so it will last a long time, making it cost effective. Remember not to use too much of this product or it will feel sticky.

            I use four pumps and massage through hair ( thick,shoulder length) while still wet. I scrunch into curls and let air dry. Looks even better when slept on. This product looks and feels very soft and natural on hair.

                  I really wanted this to work. I have thick wavy hair & all this did was add more body-which I did not need. I was hoping this would give my hair more curl. I wound up taking it back & exchanging it for the Ultra Hold Gel.

                  It doesnt help my frizz, but i have tried multiple products including quidad and still nothing helps. It will help "normal" frizzy hair fine.

                      Both Arc AnGEL and Ultra Defining Gel are firm hold gels, while Light Defining Gel is a light hold gel. Arc AnGEL is different from Ultra Defining Gel, as it has a citrus scent, versus Ultra Defining Gel that has a sweet, starfruit scent.

                      A:

                      Apply Volumizing Foam to wet hair and follow by scrunching with the DevaTowel to remove excess moisture. Then apply DevaClips to the crown area (top of head) to create extra volume. Air dry or use the DevaFuser to dry hair. Once dry (before removing the clips), spray with DevaCurl Flexible-Hold Hairspray. You can then remove clips and shake/scrunch hair to release the gel cast.

                  • Q:

                    I use Deva Curl Styling Cream and love it. My only complaint would be that it doesn't come in a larger size!

                    I was wondering if I would receive greater benefit from using Arc AnGEL along with Styling Cream.

                    I currently use the Styling Cream by scrunching it into wet hair and air drying. If I mixed the two would it weigh my hair down or would it give me yet more benefit to my curly hair?

                      A:

                      Adding ArcAngel to your routine will give your curls added definition and hold. Styling Cream is more beneficial for hydration and softer curls. If definition and hold is what you are looking for, use ArcAngel after using Styling Cream. With head tilted forward, glide across the surface of your curls and then scrunch upward. If the hair is very wet, use the DevaTowel to release a little excess water and to create more definition.

                      All DevaCurl and DevaCare products are 100% sulfate, paraben and silicone free and rich with botanical and plant-based ingredients. The DevaCare products contain the anti-oxidants vitamin C and orange peel extract to slow color fading. We recommend DevaCare for dehydrated, color treated and chemically dehydrated curls.
