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.

        I love to use this product almost daily. It's so much better than any hair gel or mousse, as it tames and holds my curls, and NEVER looks crunchy or hard. I absolutely adore this product. My curls are so soft and I can run my hands in my hair with ease.

            I've just recently started going back to my naturally curly hair after years of straightening it. I'm still learning how to style my hair. This gel has a great amount of hold and doesn't weigh my hair down. It's not the strongest gel out there, but it's strong enough for me.

              If you use DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel, try this instead for summer. It smells like fresh oranges, yet doesn't linger. Left a slight cast but NO frizz. Didn't mind the cast, was able to scrunch it away. Also, the DevaCurl website says Arc Angel has natural UV protection in it. With being blonde I really need that, if you color your hair you want all the protection you can get to hang onto that color.

                This gel made my hair hard and dried it out. I applied it to my wet hair. At first my curls looked moist and bouncy. Throughout the night my hair began to frizz and my hair starting feeling very dry and brittle.

                • Q:

                  The directions state to air dry. If I'm in a hurry, would it be alright to blow dry with a diffuser? I've read that it can be drying, so would you recommend a cream for extra moisture lock?

                    A:

                    For best results using the DevaDryer/DevaFuser, begin by tilting your head to the side and dry the roots first by placing the DevaFuser underneath curls at the scalp. Gently remove and repeat all around your scalp. Then, cradle the ends of curls in the DevaFuser and bring it up to the scalp so the hair is "scrunched" in the DevaFuser, and hold. Gently remove and repeat the same motion to the rest of your hair. Be sure to use cool air to keep hair from getting damaged.

                  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

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.

                    A:

                    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.
