          Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

          I'm glad to have discovered the DEVACURL line. They work so well at defining each curl. I have shoulder length hair and use a dime sized gob of gel. It is enough without making my hair feel sticky or look wet. On occasion, I have used too much and found that lightly working the curls with my fingers takes away that too wet look.
          I would (and have) recommend the entire DEVACURL product line to anyone with curly hair.

                Works very well. After I shampoo, I apply and crunch. Curls last for a couple of days, then I reapply.

                  Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

                  I have very curly hair. I have tried many Deva products and found this to be my favorite.
                  Whenever I want perfect corkscrew curls, this is my go-to gel. Adds tremendous volume and curl. Makes the other Deva products look bad which says a lot!

                  Make sure to apply this as the line suggests otherwise you will not see the best results.

                  The only bad thing I can say about any of these products is that I wish they were more cost effective; but if you want to love your curly hair again then I guess it's probably worth it.

                  Will ALWAYS suggest this line to anyone with wavy/curly hair.

                    Be careful of how much you apply in one area as it can get flaky when it dries and can also create a slick effect on your hair.

                      Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

                      I have thick curly hair that is relatively long. However, as I have gotten older, I am finding that I have unpleasant skin reactions to many products (now allergic to hair relaxer, permanent dye), so I'm cautious while on the lookout for new curly hair products. I was happy that I found sample sizes of this line, so I tried it. This product smells odd to me - sort of like fragranced chalk. The solution itself doesn't feel silky, like it would moisturize and shine, and sadly, it didn't do either. My curls were defined, but my hair was pretty flat and lacked shine.

                          I've never been able to get good results with a gel and this may be the same. I did use it all but I'm not sure I'm going to go back to it. Will be trying the Styling Cream next. My hair does better with creams.
