    Comments about DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel:

    I USUALLY STRAIGHTEN MY HAIR BUT WHEN I DON'T I USE THIS GEL!! I TYPICALLY TEND TO BUY THE CHEAPER BRANDS OF PRODUCTS, WHICH CAUSES ME TO HAVE TO BUY NOT JUST GEL, I ALSO HAVE TO GET MOUSSE, AND HAIRSPRAY TO GET THE LOOK I WANT. AFTER TRYING MY FRIENDS DEVACURL GEL I FELL IN LOVE AND ITS WORTH THE PRICE. I GET THE LOOK I WANT WITHOUT HAVING TO BUY A MILLION OTHER THINGS TO ADD TO MY HAIR. THE GEL IS VERY LIGHT WEIGHT AND I WASHES OUT VERY WELL. THE SMELL ISN'T OVER POWERING. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS GEL!!

        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.

                  A:

                  If this is your first time using DevaCurl, for your beautiful thick curly tresses, I would recommend using No-Poo, One Condition and Styling Cream. If your curls crave extra moisture, use Heaven In Hair once a week as a hair masque.

                  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:

                  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.
