Great for Wavy Hair

By Mrs. Klein

from Adrian, MI

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Effective
  • Gentle
  • Good Value

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Color-treated Hair
    • Dry/Damaged Hair
    • Frizziness/Flyaways

    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!

      My stylist recommended this product. It is the best gel I've ever used. I have naturally curly hair, and I just moved from living at the beach to living in Colorado. The dryness was creating havoc on my hair with frizz. This product has been amazing!

            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.

                            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.

                                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.
