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:

    Devacuts and Devacurls have changed how I think about myself (specifically my hair). I now have beautiful, soft curls and (after 35 years) no longer have to use hairspray. I enjoy all of the compliments I get.

      Comments about DevaCurl DevaCare Arc AnGEL:

      I have very curly, very frizzy, naturally curly hair. I have struggled to find a perfect styling product my entire life. Once I got over myself and realized I wasn't going to be successful with a $4 bottle of mousse from the drugstore, I bit the bullet and spent the money. It is worth every single penny!! Because my hair is very long and very curly, I use quite a bit at a time, and it delivers perfectly coiled, touchable curls with the perfect combination of hold and softness.

        I just started using this product a couple months ago and I love it. It so easy to use. I shower, use Devacurl no poo cleanser, then before getting out of the shower I put arc angel on my hair and let it air dry. This is the first product I've used on my hair that I've only had to use just that product. Usually I have to use 2-3 products to control my hair!

          • Q:

            Which of the gels are best for medium coarse hair that forms ringlet curls on the top layer and softer curls underneath. I'd like to get the underneath layer to form a tighter curl. Thanks!

              A:

              Our gels are based on hold rather than curl type. Light Defining Gel for light hold. Ultra or Arc for firm hold. So in the end, it depends on your styling goals. Hope this helps!

              A:

              You will want a firm hold gel such as Arc or Ultra. Remember to apply in soaking wet hair for best results. Once completely dry, scrunch to release the gel cast.

          • 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.

              DevaCare Arc AnGEL is a maximum hold gel. If you are looking for a light hold gel, try DevaCurl 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.

              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?

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              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.
