    Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

    This is what I do: With freshly shampooed/conditioned/rinsed hair, flip head upside down (like you're touching your nose to your knees) and lightly squeeze excess water from hair, using a microfiber towel or tshirt. Then apply ~1.5 tablespoons of Gel to hair, by lightly squeezing curls in an upward motion towards the scalp. Do this slowly and deliberately, trying to keep curls intact as much as possible. Flip head to normal upright position, place some clips at roots where volume is desired, and then LEAVE HAIR ALONE. It must dry completely before touching it again. Once dry, gently squeeze curls - this breaks the hard "cast" of the gel, so the crunchy feeling is gone, but the defined curls are retained. This is hands-down the best gel I have used to date. It's worth the pricetag!

    Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

    I used it in the shower immediately after using no poo and it was great that day. The next day my curl pattern was not defined at all. My hair was frizzy and dry and felt like I hadn't moisturized it. I love the brand so far. Loving the no poo and lavendar mister right.

    Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

    I'm loving the 3step devacurl set! This gel so far is working very well, but I will try and use the styling cream with this to see how well it holds! If you use this product the right way then there should be no problem with it :)

          I apply the gel, then brush it through my hair. I then make bologna curls and let air dry. Once dry, I scrunch the curls to soften and finger through the bologna curls.

            Works wonderfully on freshly shampooed hair and then again to freshen up the look the next day with a little added moisture and hair dryer.

                It has been a month since I started using DevaCurl products and I just love them. I finally found a line of products that detangles and control freeze. It is just perfect for curly hair.

                    Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

                    I have fine curly hair. I tend to use mousses versus gels, but since it is summer and humid, I thought the extra control would be appropriate. Based on the great reviews, I expected to like this stuff. I used a generous amount, but not too much. It seemed to weigh down my curls, and my hair felt stiff and dry once dried. When i smoothed out the crunchiness, I was left with weighted-down waves. returned the product.

                      Didn't think I would become a convert to Deva Curl but have been pleasantly surprised. I now have several of their products and don't plan to go back to the "regular" shampoos & conditioners.

                          Yes! From DevaCurl:
                          "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."

                          A:

                          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.
