    Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

    I just want to start out by saying that Devacurl has made me love my curls again!
    I have used many different gels and creams from this company, but This specific product is my absolute favorite when paired with the No-Poo shampoo and Conditioner.
    After using this gel, I will not use anything else!
    After cutting off my heat damaged hair, I started using this product and have never had a bad hair day since.
    I will say that I think it's important to try all of their creams and gels to find the right one for yourself. In my scenario, this gel works the best.
    I have very curly hair that is dry and flat naturally. When I use the gel, my hair is full of volume and looks like corkscrews!
    Even though these products are fairly expensive, once you find the right gel or cream from them, it is more than worth it.

              This gel left my hair sticky and weighed it down even after it was dry. Felt like I had glue in my hair.

                    Love this product. Holds my curls all day & it doesn't take much. Great natural hold, but not crunchy when used properly. A little pricy for gels. . . But it works better than anything else I've tried.

                      I have wavy to curly hair that is ultra soft and fine and I have lots of it. I have tried a ton of products for my hair because I struggle with frizz and I really love this one. It's not heavy at all and doesn't leave my hair crunchy. I can actually use a blow dryer (diffuser) when I use this product and don't end up frizzing out my hair and can get good volume. It really brings out the curl. If I don't blow dry I end up with sort of flat looking hair though but still nice curls. Will buy continue to use.

                              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.

                            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!!

                              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.
