Most Helpful Positive Review This is AMAZING!!!!
First of all, I think it's important to mention that as with ALL DEVACURL products, they work BEST if you had a devacurl transformation and a lesson. I say this so not to discourage anyone but to perhaps inspire the ones that have rated this product way below its potential. My DevaCurl Stylist/former DevaCurl/DevaChan Educator taught me how to use this product properly to get the best use and definition; MY CURLS LOOK AMAZING!!!! I highly recommend the DevaCurl line and taking the time to get to know how to properly use and apply their products.
Most Helpful Critical Review Jury is still out
I've been experimenting with this line of products because I've had great luck with some, not so much with others including this one. This is something between a wax and a pommade, but it isn't greasy as I feared. I may not have the right hair type for this, or I may have been a little heavy-handed but I found that by the end of the day my hair looked dirty. I tried using less which seemed to help a bit but it just didn't look great. It's probably great for someone with less fine hair but I'll be sticking with the styling cream.

I love this product so much, it does exactly what I want it to do and makes my hair the most gorgeous it has ever looked. I put some on my hands and then just kind of pat my dry hair with it and scrunch it a little. The application process feels weird but just patting it into my hair is enough to make the product work! It makes my natural curly messy hair look like the attractive version of my naturally curly messy hair. The only thing I don't like about this product is that I'm scared to use it. I read horrible reviews about the shampoo and conditioner and I'm worried this product could have the same effects on my hair a year from now. I wish Deva Curl would put out a statement so we could at least know what is going on. Which products are defective and which are safe to use. This product is also new so if something is wrong with it like with the other products It scares me
Hard to use
K from Pennsylvania
I experimented with the product on dry/damp/wet hair with varied amounts of products. It either did nothing or made my hair greasy. I have fine waves and think that this product was just too heavy for me.
Not for me
Gabis from Houstin, Tx
Unfortunately this product didnt work for me. I really wanted to experience the same results that I saw on some videos and review but it made my hair stiff.
It smells very good.
Unsure, but I like the results so far
Skyy from New Orleans, LA
Right now I have a love/hate relationship with this product. I love that it doesn't have a scent and that all it takes is a little bit to go a long way. I find that it hasn't helped with frizzy sections hair, but it does add body and definition to my curls. It can leave that "crunchy" feeling if you apply to thickly to some areas and feels heavy if you're not careful with it. I think if someone who has more experience with kind of product used it, it would be spectacular. Or even if matched with a guaranteed frizz-control product it would save me the messy crazy look I was left with.
It'll take some time and experimentation to figure out the best way to use this for my hair.
Awesome light weight product
Nika007 from Phoenix, Az
This product is like butter seriously and great for my 4C hair. I hate gels because of white flakes and tried the curl plumper which would still leave a little bit of white flakes. This product is light weight gives the same effect of defining my curls and I don't need to use much nor does it flake. The smell is nice. I used on my hair and my daughter 4a/4b hair. The container is a decent size I wish it was a little bigger.
Makes my curls last longer!
Callie from Long Beach, CA
I've used this product a few times and so far I really like it! I applied it to dry, day 3 hair and it brought great texture to my hair. No it didn't look like I had washed my hair but it gave me a nice undone look. If I use a larger amount on individual curls I can scrunch and redefine. I noticed when I used this product on dry hair, it held my curls longer! I usually have to do an updo hair 3 or 4 and I didn't with this stuff.
Jenn from Boise, Idaho
A little goes a LONG way. Super light weight and great for frizz. Definitely works the best with damp hair.
not for volume at roots
ashppr from Southern Indiana
I wanted it to boost my roots, and it would separate but not keep up, it was too heavy.
An alternative way to use
Joanna from Queens, NY
I love this product, but not for the use it's intended. I have to keep my hair up in a bun every day for work, and I've always struggled with keeping my hair neatly brushed back through the day. My hair would always frizz up and it would look like I was electrocuted most days. Only strong hairspray or gel would keep my fuzzies tame but they damage my hair and create a helmet type style. I use this in place of that, wet the top of my head, apply this product and smooth my hair back into a bun. The hold lasts all 9 hrs and doesn't leave flakes. It keeps my hair soft and I don't have to worry about applying more the next day.
MIMI to four from Northbrook, IL
My husband, who has no idea how to style his hair, uses this product successfully. That says a lot!!!
Works great on shorty curly hair.
Donna B. from Conshohocken, PA
I have used a lot of different products for my short curly hair. This product delivers better than choices I have recently made. It smells great, i just use a small amount in my hair and then style with my fingers. It holds it nicely all day and maintains the separation between pieces of my hair.
Miracle for curly hair
Mary Jo from Illinois
Awesome finishing product. I use this daily to get my waves and curls under control. It's sticky and thick but the final outcome is great. Creates great texture and keeps curls together.
Best Product for any hair!!
Michelle the curly girl from Westminster, CO
This is the best sculping gel ever! It does go on greasy but once you rub it all over your hair and style it the way you want it is perfect!! I have very dry, curly hair and it gives it a healthy shine without the frizzy curly it holds the curls nicely and evenly and it gives it a lot of volume!!! This is perfect for curly hair to give it some texture I let me friend use the product as well and she has straight hair and it give her more volume and texture even with her hair being straight! Please never get rid of this product!!!
Lo from MD
My hair looked nice but got progressively drier with each use.
I like this product
Sks from Columbus, Ohio
After my hair dries I start at the roots and work through my hair. I like the curly wild look it gives!
Betsy from Florida
Very nice and lightweight - Does not weigh your hair down and still is still great for getting that messy tousled look
for in between stylying
comebackcurls17 from charleston,sc
I bought this originally to freshen my curls but it did not do that. If I use a lot of it, my curls go straight and this is why I gave it a 4.. Be careful to only use a small amount in small areas only. It is great to tame those flyaways.Not a great all over product for my hair .
Great for curls
hl from midland, tx
Love the product but would love it even more if it were scented (smells a bit like floor wax).
Savior for waves and humidity!
Wave Rider from Las Vegas
I tried this for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I love that you need just a little but it both encourages my waves and keeps hair in place without being sticky or "crunchy."
Not right for my hair
Miss Missy from Columbus Ohio
Seems like it would work if it was what I need
defines curls, without crunch
D from SEA from Seattle
Takes a bit to learn how to use it (my stylist taught me), but it's amazing! Doesn't make hair "crunchy" and really defines the curls. It feels sticky to apply, but not once it is in your hair. I use it only on dry hair and it's necessary to use more of this product than other creams and mousses, but it's worth it.
I would buy this product again
Sho the teacher from Baytown, TX
This product is great for adding body to your curls without the weight of other products.
purrtywoman from Tampa Bay, FL
I have fine, short, wavy hair and am new to the DevaCurl line of products. After much trial and error, I landed on Beautiful Mess and have found their styling product that works for me. I like that it is used after my hair is dry so that I can move it into place, giving definition, body and hold. Beautiful Mess might seem stiff right out of the jar, but I start with a pea size in the palm of my hand, warm the product by rubbing it between my hands and then apply it all over in a scrunch motion. A little extra can be added here and there with the fingertips. What I end up with is soft waves and curls that hold all day and into the next with just a little water to reactivate the product. The scent reminds me of plastic, but it's not strong, and it dissipates quickly.
Not worth the $ spent

Perfect Hair everytime!
Teresa from Staten Island, NY
Strong but soft hold. Controls frizz. Helps curly hair look healthy. Absolutely wonderful product. Can use everyday. Washes out easily. Use as a final touch after hair has been styled with Deva super coconut cream and dried.
