                I wasn't impressed with this product. I don't feel that I need the product after using the one decadence leave in conditioner. It has a great smell as do all of the Deva Curl products but I feel that I can get better definition and hold using a regular aloe gel.

                  Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

                  I never believed the hype for DevaCurl products until my stylist insisted I try it. She used this gel on my hair and it looked fantastic but I assumed it was because she's a stylist and somehow my hair always looks awesome after I leave the salon but I can never re-create it at home. But this stuff is AWESOME! I used to use SO. MUCH. PRODUCT. in my hair: leave-in conditioner, detangler, curl smoothie, gobs and gobs of mousse and hairspray and was still not happy with my curls. This stuff changed the game for me and eliminated all those products. A little goes a long way (I have shoulder-length 3B curls and I use 2 quarter-size gobs). If you have curls, you need this!

                    I really could not believe how bouncy and free my curly hair was after using this gel. So light weight and the prefect hold in the most humid weather.

                    Expected more definition of curl. May work better on wavy hair, but on very curly hair it doesn't. The hair felt rough.

                    • Q:

                      I have long, very fine, porous hair that is naturally wavy (the top layers are much curlier then the bottom layers); but a lot of hair. I typically straighten my hair, but on the days I want to scrunch it I'd like to try air-drying it w/o it being frizzy or flat (I usually end up needing to diffuse it to get rid of frizz). Would this light weight gel work well, or should I try the ultra gel or a cream? Gels have always made my hair crunchy and creams tend to weigh it down. Any advice would be appreciated!

                        A:

                        Remember BPJ, curls have memory, so if you straighten a lot, you won't get perfect curl or a lot of curl at first. You'd want to start with No-Poo and One Condition to get your curls set up properly with lots of moisture. Then I would recommend the Styling Cream (more creamy moisture) rather than just the gel. You can finish with Ultra or Light in soaking wet hair and diffuse up for more volume. FYI, the difference btween Ultra and Light Defining Gel is the hold, not the weight. Neither will weigh down your curls; both will cut down on frizz. If you like this combo, you could try the Kit For All Curl Kind which has 3oz sizes of all 4 products I mentioned. Good luck and happy curls xo

                        "Once hair is permed, it is considered curly and must be treated with the same care as naturally curly hair. Moisture is the key to success with curls so the more dehydrated, the more we encourage using our botanically infused and very moisturizing cleansers, conditioners and styling products."

                        Light Defining Gel has a lighter hold that works best for curly and super curly hair, while Ultra Defining Gel has a strong hold that works best for wavy/slightly curly hair.
