DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel Maximum Hold No-Crunch Styler is a maximum hold, extra- moisturizing formula that sends frizz packing and defines your curl shape. The unique formula, made with chamomile, lemongrass and orange peel extract, keeps curls smooth and soft for the long haul. The effervescent Orange Blossom fragrance creates a happy citrus sensation. Great for wavy, curly, and super curly hair!

Rub gel between palms. Tilt head forward then scrunch gel all over very wet curls in an upward motion. Use the DevaTowel to soak up excess water and speed up air-drying time. Now hands off! Once curls are completely dry, shake at the root and gently scrunch upward again to soften the firm cast. You'll get touchable, crunch-free curls that look and feel moisturized.

      Hair is soft and still have to use hair spray to control the frizz. It's never like the pictures but I do like this product more than others. I've searched for years and for now I will stick with this. The price however is ridiculous.

      Comments about DevaCurl Arc Angel Gel Maximum Hold No-Crunch Styler:

      I've been wanting to try the product for a while now and am extremely impressed by how well it works. It not only defines my curls but helps to keep them looking curl and not frizzy all day long! I used to use the Deva Curl Super Style Cream and have switched to the Arc Angel Gel, it is slightly less expensive and helps me to achieve the curls of my dreams. I have also received a lot of compliments from the ladies at work, especially from the other curly haired lady.

      My only complaint is that one spot (the same spot) on the back of my head always feels like it has a lot of product residue when I use this product.

        In order for Devacurl products to work you have to apply them correctly, most people want to put gel on dry hair and you just can't do that with Devacurl. Apply to soaking wet hair and get an amazing strong hold when after your hair is completely dry SOTC for a soft, frizz free hold! I can't say enough good things about this product!!

                This is the only product that works in my hair. You NEED to follow the directions though, or it won't work! It has made my hair last several days after wash days. It brings out bouncy, pretty and revitalized curls that I thought I lost. It also eliminates frizz. It's amazing how instantly your hair transforms once you "break the cast" (which is a key step).

                  Majority of my life I've used moose that wasn't right for my curly hair. My hair would always be hard and crunchy and a flat out mess. My curls would never lay right and to top that off the product I used would dry and break my curls. I wanted to HOLD my curls and prevent it from becoming a frizzy uncontrollable mess. It took me a while to finally try something new and I'm glad I switched to this product. It defiantly holds and controls frizz all the while letting your curls be what they should! All without drying out my hair. All without the crunch and stiffness. This product gives my hair LIFE.

                    Hi!
                    Can this be used on fine wavy hair ? I have tried several different stylers within the Devacurl brand and so far I haven't found the winner. I want it to hold the wave I have but not weigh my hair down.
                    Thanks

                      Arc AnGEL is a firm-hold gel that contains UV absorbers and anti-oxidants to protect the longevity of hair color and provide additional protection from sun damage. You may want to try the DevaCurl WaveMaker, it contains a blend of moringa seed and passion flower extracts which gives consistent waves and frizz control for finer or wavy hair types.

                  • Q:

                    I have 3a hair. I am looking to purchase devacurl products but I'm not sure how intense I should go with these products. It seems the conditioner, shampoo, and defining gel have levels of intensity. My main concerns are to tame the frizziness, more definition in my curls since they tend to be more loose than I prefer, and some moisture since my hair can be super dry and brittle.

                      A:

                      Great curls start in the shower, so starting with a DevaCurl cleanser and conditioner is a great beginning. Our formulas are highly moisturizing and are 100% Sulfate, Silicone, and Paraben free which means more moisture, less frizz.
                      For cleansing and conditioning, I would highly recommend trying our Original DevaCurl No-Poo cleanser and our DevaCurl One Condition. Our products contain only moisturizing and water soluble botanicals that stimulate, cleanse, rejuvenate and restore curls natural order.
                      For styling I would highly recommend our DevaCurl Styling Cream, this botanically infused cream conditions, enhances and defines curls. It provides natural hold, humidity resistance and leaves curls moisturized and frizz free.

                      A:

                      All of our gels create a moisture-protective barrier (we call it the Curl Cast) that sets the curls' shape during the drying process and prevents frizz while the hair dries. While the hold is strong, the hair is left soft, supple and defined, and will not leave a crunchy or wet look once the Curl Cast is scrunched and released.

                      Arc AnGel for Firm Hold and UV protection – Great for long lasting definition and great for chemically treated curls. Light Defining Gel for weightless hold – if you have wavy or fine hair, it gives you just enough hold without weighing your curls down.

                    I use low poo and the conditioner for my 3c natural curls and style with Arc gel and soft hold cream. I leave a bit of the conditioner in my hair from the midlrngth to the ends as a leave in. What order should I use the soft styling cream and the arc gel in? The gel seems to dry my hair out and I use the cream after? Should I use the cream more like a leave in conditioner?

                      Set It Free Moisture Lock Spray. It adds nourishment, shine and bounce to thirsty curls. It locks in moisture for those that need extra hydration, and fights frizz. It's great to use a finishing spray to seal in moisture or a second day refresher. You can also use it before the Arc AnGel for added nourishment.
