Does what it's supposed to but...

Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

When I get the Deva cut my hair stylist uses this to style it. It does work and has a good hold. But I don't like the scent of it which is why I gave it 3 stars.

    This is the best line of products for curly hair. It's not heavy, smells great and is piced well. This gel holds and makes my curls gravity defying without being too crunchy or too stiff.

          Apply to wet hair, for more defined curls. Don't touch hair too much, use a diffuser to dry. This product smells great and won't let your curls get frizzy. One thing that it's not great about it, is the price.. A lil too pricey but other than that, it works wonders

            Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

            I was so excited to try the devacurl gel-I love the shampoo and conditioner but found the gel to leave a tacky feeling in my hair even after hours of being dry, and weighted my hair down. I tried using a little one day, and a lot the next and neither day were my curls tamed. i have used Tresemme Flwaless Curls Curl Defining Mousse for years and love it-but my stylist convinced me to try this…I have extremely curly hair and am extremely disappointed with this product.

              Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

              I love this product! I have long, thick wavy hair that has a mind of its own, but this gel has definitely helped tame it. The gel isn't too thick and doesn't leave my hair crunchy. I put a small amount in my hair when its wet and let air-dry. I have never found a hair product that I love this much or has been this effective!

                  A:

                  DevaCurl Styling Cream would be perfect for your hair! Due to its creamy and moisturizing nature, it will help soften, tame and lengthen curls. For maximum benefit, cleanse and hydrate with DevaCurl No-Poo and One Condition first. Follow with DevaCurl Styling Cream on wet hair.

                  From DevaCurl:

                  "Our moisturizing and defining
                  gels dissolves instantly when applied to
                  wet hair and dries forming a moisture protective
                  cast to enhance curls. Once the curls are completely dry, scrunching the curls in an upward motion will
                  release the cast revealing soft, shiny and bouncy curls.

                  "Suggested Use
                  Tilt head forward. Scrunch curls in an upward
                  motion to release excess water weight. Apply
                  gel between palms and glide across hair before
                  scrunching upward. Using the DevaTowel
                  or DevaGloves, scrunch again toward scalp to
                  define curls."

                  Ultra Defining Gel features firm but flexible hold and definition of curls. For lighter hold, try DevaCurl Light Defining Gel:
                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3960033

                  Neither product will leave hair feeling stiff.

              • Q:

                Hi I was wondering how this product compares to the arc angel. I have thick, wavy, unruly hair and I am wondering which gel would do the best job of defining the wave, adding curl to hair that needs it, yet preventing my hair from being poofy and frizzy. THANKS SO MUCH!!

                  A:

                  All DevaCurl and DevaCare products are 100% sulfate, paraben and silicone free and rich with botanical and plant-based ingredients. The DevaCare products contain the anti-oxidants vitamin C and orange peel extract to slow color fading. We recommend DevaCare for dehydrated, color treated and chemically dehydrated curls.

                  Arc AnGEL provides the same amount of hold, just with the added benefits of these ingredients. Both would be well suited for your hair type and texture to help reduce your frizz and define your natural curl/wave pattern.
