    Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

    I have very thick curly hair. I tried everything and nothing worked like this product. I use it after I wash my hair while my hair is stil damp.I use a generous amount from root to tips. then I use a diffuser with high heat low air. The way this gel keeps the curls well defined frizz free soft to the touch and bouncy is amazing. The best product for curly hair that I have found. the gel is very light, and once the hair is dry, you can't tell you have products on as it looks very natural. it also keeps your hair very soft and healthy and won't dry it.

    Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

    I LOVE this gel! This is the only gel I've used that hasn't left my hair feeling crunchy. Leaves the curls with body and leaves them feeling soft. I have thin fine hair but it's very curly. I like to use this in the summer along with kinky curly knot today leave in conditioner since both are light weight and done weigh my hair down. In the winter I opt for a heavier styler since my hair is more dry and needs the moisture.

            I have tried LOTS of different products for my challenging, wanna-be curly hair. This is the best I've found for me! It's a great enhancer if used the "curly-girl way!" It really does bring out my curls and lasts until my next washing! And the smell is divine! I highly recommend!

              Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

              It's a good basic hair gel. It holds curls for a long time. I would have given 5 stars if it was a bit more moisturizing. My hair is dry and I color monthly. I also use a leave in conditioner with it. I love the clean fresh scent.

              Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

              I love the DevaCurl line. My favorite product is the conditioner, but I must say this gel is really good. It does leave my hair with a bit of frizz, but with curly/wavy hair, that is a hard thing to avoid. This product keeps my hair looking good for 2 to 3 days, until I'm ready to wash again. Good stuff!

                      Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

                      I was so excited to try this product. However, once I used it on my wet hair I could already feel the consistency of the product. Thin, and immediately felt it dry on my hair. At that moment I already knew the outcome of it ): once my hair dried it felt so dry with not to many curls. I ended up having to tie my hair up in a bun for the day. Maybe it does not work well on dry damaged curly hair? Kinky curly gel works great on my hair.

                          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."

                          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.
