    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 loved the definition and moisture my curls displayed with this product. I've since bought the bigger bottle.

    Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

    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.

      Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

      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.

          Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

          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.

                Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

                I initially tried Deva's Ultra Defining Gel and it really "shrunk" my curls, making my hair appear much shorter. I then tried the Light Defining Gel which did not curl my hair as much and left it with too much body. Third time's the charm, right? The Arc AnGel is just right. It defines the curls better than the Light Defining Gel but without as much shrinkage from the Ultra Defining Gel, and with a good amount of body in my opinion.

                I wash with Deva's No Poo, followed by One Conditioner--which I don't wash out completely, I then scrunch a generous amount of gel and allow my hair to air dry. Once completely dry, I scrunch hair again to release gel cast.

                Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

                I learned from Devacurl that the best way to hydrate hair is to co-wash, leave Devacurl conditioner in your hair, then apply this gel. My hair dries with a cast that once I scrunch and diffuse, my curls are defined and beautiful. This process is invaluable during very humid days.

                    A:

                    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.
