    Comments about DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:

    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.

                  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.

                  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 :)

                          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.
