      Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

      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.

      Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

      You have to receive instructions from a professional who has been trained to use this product before using it alone. Can't go longer than two days between washing when using this product, but I don't ever go longer than every other day so that's fine for me. My hair is oily so I wouldn't notice a drying effect unless it were extreme. You need to be gentle with hair to avoid breakage. Hair needs to be very wet but not dripping when product is applied, and drying naturally works best. I use a diffuser with my hair dryer, on a cool temperature, if I'm pressed for time. Priduct is reasonably priced.

        Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

        I love how lightweight it is! It has a slight but pleasant scent. It doesn't leave your hair crunchy and stiff. It really helps hold the curl. It controls frizz better than any other product I've tried, but my hair is still quite frizzy (but that could just be due to my hair, or the fact that I live in the humid south). I found that this gel works best in conjunction with some other styling product/products (using it alone didn't get the job done). I generally mix it with a leave-in conditioner. It also takes a lot of product to ensure all my hair is scrunched (and my hair is fine, thin, shoulder length). Overall, it's a really good product! I recommend you give it a try!

        I meant the Not Crunchy for the Pro column not the Cons. It is a wonderful gel. I used to use Gelee from Biolage and now this product has taken it's place. I have raved about this whole line of products to other curly headed people like myself.

        Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

        I have long, wavy hair that is a frizzy mess if I were to just let it air dry without any products in it. I got turned on to the Deva products by a stylist in CT and haven't used anything else since. It turns my wavy frizz into beautiful, soft (non-crispy) spiral curls. Use exactly as directed and you can't go wrong. I've even used it on my 10-year-old daughter's super straight long hair and it gave it such a cute, natural looking wave.

          i am in love with this and the light defining gel! i love how it helps my unruly frizzy hair and is helps save time so that i dont have to style my hair and do a lot of work in the morning. i stopped brushing my hair about a year ago to stop my fragile hair from breaking so much and now only use a wide toothed comb and my hands to untangle it and this really helps to keep it looking nice. being a sophomore in high school its nice to be able to get ready fast in the morning instead of having to do something with my unruly hair.

              I purchased the DevaCare No-Poo, One Condition, and Arc AnGel and I had very high expectations as per all of the positive reviews I read. I used the products for two full months and they made my hair HORRIBLY dry. Awful! I returned them to the store and went back to my trusted Paul Mitchell products and my hair is now wonderfully nourished and bouncy and back to it's healthy self.

                Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

                I switched from the DevaCurl Light Defining Gel and found this to be a lot more functional. Has more hold and shine but does not take away from softness. Instead of using as directed, I mix half and half with DevaCurl styling cream on wet/towel-dried hair. The drawback to this and most "natural" hair product lines is that good results require 2+ different styling products mixed together.

                  How is the Arc AnGEL different from the Ultra Defining Gel or Light Defining Gel?

                    A:

                    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.

                • 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.
