DevaCare Arc AnGEL Firm Hold Defining Gel  is a firm-hold moisturizing and defining gel that's perfect for chemically-treated curls. As it dries, the gel sets the curl shape by forming a moisture-protective cast that protects from frizz during the drying process.
Tilt head forward. Scrunch wet curls in an upward motion. Apply gel between palms and glide through hair. Scrunch upward toward the scalp to define curls. Once dry, scrunch curls again to release cast to reveal beautiful curls.

            Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

            I had heard a lot of good things about the devacurl line of products and decided to purchase devacare arc anGEL since it came with a free sample of the devacurl styling cream. The gel wasn't bad, but i did notice a considerable dryness to the texture my hair after using (both air drying and blow drying). My hair is on the drier side to begin with, so perhaps that's why it seemed even more pronounced. I tried the styling cream as well, and preferred that product since it left a softer finish. Both worked well to reduce frizz and define the curl structure, but I think I will be returning the gel in exchange for more of the styling creme.

              I used this for my wash and go. I hated it. Once my hair dried it was dull, crunchy and lack luster. I wish I could have a refund, I'm very disappointed in the product. I had to wash my hair as soon as I got home from work. Thumbs down for me. Won't buy again.

                By itself, this gel did not have enough slip for my tightly coiled hair. I use it in a cocktail with a more slippery gel underneath and the Arc Angel on top for hold. This has worked great. My hair dries soft and feels moisturized for a couple of days.

                  I love that it's light and defines my curls. Doesn't have a strong scent like many products for curly hair. It has a better price than other products I have tried and I appreciate that. I love that they thought of the pump..us curly hair people appreciate that. :-)

                  • Q:

                    A while back I purchased a 12 ounce bottle of DevaCurl Arc Angel and really liked how it left my tightly curled hair manageable and fizz free. I was so impressed with the product I recently purchased a 32 ounce pump bottle of Arc Angel. The product I bought in the pump bottle is totally different. It is darker in color and is of a much thicker, almost glue like consistency. It is also difficult to apply to my hair. Why would there be such a difference in these two bottles if they are labeled as the same product? Thank you for your help.

                      Hi CHL! The product should be exactly the same. This would be a great question for Customer Service for the website/stores from which you purchased. When you chat with them, be sure to let them know the dates you purchased both products. Hope this helps.

                      A:

                      Hi Jay Jay, in the hierarchy of our DevaCurl Gels, both Arc AnGEL and Ultra Defining Gel are firm-hold gels and are quite comparable in hold. What is different is the shape of the curl you get, which is different for everyone. People who use Arc develop a super-loyalty to Arc as do UDG users become superfans of UDG. It's a preference thing, in other words. See which one you love. Try one, then the next.

                      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.

                      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.

                    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.
