Not the best but it'll do in a pinch

  • Easy To Use

Cons

  • Greasy
  • Sticky

Best Uses

  • Curly Hair

Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

I switch between this and Kinky Curly Styling Custard, and prefer the latter. My stylist said you need to use a LOT of this to get the best effect, and my curls did look nice and held up amazingly well overnight, but I hated the sticky, stiff, greasy feel of my hair by the end of day 2. It doesn't set into a firm cast the way KCSC does. But it does provide definition, it's easy to apply, and it's free of nasty chemicals and silicones.

Pros

  • Controls Frizz
  • Easy To Use
  • Lightweight
  • Smells Great

Cons

  • None

Best Uses

  • Curly Hair
  • Daily Use

Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

I use this daily on my very curly hair. It's lightweight but really holds and prevents frizz. It scrunches out completely so it doesn't leave your hair crunchy looking. I've been using it since I stopped strightening my hair 2 years ago and am very happy with it.

Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

This came in the Deva Curl trial/travel bag. It's so light that for my hair, it just didn't work. There wasn't enough hold, so my waves fell out and my hair stayed frizzy. Gels just don't seem to work for my hair--I need moisturizing creams.

          This is a great gel! It smells good and holds my curl very well! Not sticky at all and is really good for curly 2c curls.

              Love this product! It makes your curls look amazing and natural. Makes them look as if they don't have product on them at all, and by boyfriend can't stop touching my hair because its so soft.

              Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

              I use almost all of DevaCurl products and decided to try this one. I always use the Utra Defining Gel but wanted to see how this would be for my hair. I have fine curly hair. This product did nothing for definition of my curls. It also gave a frizzy look to my hair. I bought it back to the store and will stick with Ultra from now on as it does exactly what I want.

                  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.
