Most Helpful Positive Review The HG for perfect curls!
So easy to use. The trick is to apply the gel while your hair is still completely wet from the shower, then scrunch your hair with the Deva Towel and let dry WITHOUT touching it. When dry scrunch your curls again and you are ready to go with bouncy, shiny, frizz free curls. Everyone noticed when I switched to the DevaCurl product line--lots of compliments. Now I can forget the hundreds of products I've used over the years!
Most Helpful Critical Review Waste of Money!
I saw such great reviews of this product I had to try it for my very curly hair. I thought the small bottle was unreasonably expensive compared to the larger bottle, but I wanted to make sure the production was effective before making the bigger investment.
I tried it three times each time increasing the amount of product, hoping it would be work.
Each time the results were the same. whispy flyaway hair that had less curl than if I used no product at all.
The crunchiness goes away, as it does for all products by bending over and gently running fingers from the scalp down the length of the hair. The issue is that the product took away my natural curls, and left semi-wavy flyaway frizz.
I have tried many products for curly hair, this is by far the worst, including a Suave mouse.

This product is simply amazing.

I didn't like it
LT34 from Mississippi
I used a small amount on my hair, and it dried it out. I'm glad I bought the trial size and not a bigger size.
I would like to purchase it again

Does its job

This product looked thick at first but it smelled lovely and applied to my hair quite nicely
Sherbear from PA
Nice, lightweight & no smell.
Wrecked my curl pattern
Mo from Jacksonville
Didn't hold my curl pattern... just made it more frizzy, and it only got worse.
Returned! This did nothing but weigh down my curls.

i love that deva-curl offers a more affordable sample size to try this product out, i needed an item to use my $3.50 off $15 and decided to pick this up. before i used this product, i found out my sister had a huge bottle of this that she purchased from ulta just a few weeks earlier. we both love extreme, strong hold for our curls, my hair is more curly than hers and hers is a lot more thick than mine. it really didn't do nothing that fully impressed me for the price point it is. my curls were weighed down, not really defined and on her, it was frizzy. i returned this having not used any of it, and showed her the products that i already use that give me my best curls from curlsmith, ouidad, tiki catwalk, and two products from a brand that i wish ulta carried, mielle. unfortunately, both curlsmith and ouidad don't offer as affordable samples as devacurl but it is worth the price to just but the normal size products, trust me! ouidad vita curl + soft defining mousse, curlsmith curl quenching conditioning wash are two of my favorite products that you will love.
on the last note, ulta please start carrying mielle, laneige and drunk elephant skin care. everyone wants it, from customers to employees alike.
Bought as a trial size

My New Years resolution this year was to take care of myself, starting with nourishing and properly taking care of my curly hair. I haven't used gel since high school and was scared to try this after I saw so many positive reviews. I can say 7 days into the new year and I love it. It will leave a mild cast (shell like feeling) on your curls as it's drying but once it's dry I just flip my hair over and fluff and scrunch to break the cast and my hair remains soft, defined curls and frizz free for 12 hours (I work as a vet tech so I'm running around for 10 hours with rambunctious pets) and It stand the test of physical labor!
I would not buy again I'm returning
Chrissy from Cherry hillNo
I tried for first time. It made my hair look full but it made it so knotty I couldn't get a brush through my hair at all after using. I had to use a deep conditioner treatment and I felt it caused damage because it made it so knotty
One of my favorites!
Sarah from Seattle, WA
This is one of my favorite products for my curly hair. Keeps my curls defined and frizz free without the crunch.
makes my hair dry
Sabi from Georgia
i purchased this product because i love their hair tools however this product wasn't the best i've purchased, i expected more than that for this price
i liked this product
Shawna p. from pico rivera , ca
i had to make sure i used a good amount of frizz serum. But it defined my curls well and my hair did not frizz out even when i slept on it.
Kayh from Utah
I bought it for my stepmom to try.
Great for wash and go!
Whit90 from Oklahoma City
I bought this try on my hair as a tester and ended up loving it. My hair gets really frizzy since it's wavy so eco style doesn't work with my wash and go's so I tried this mad it keeps my hair defined and tamed.
Product performs as described
HappyShopper from Sioux Falls, SD
This product is great for tighter curls, but with my long wavy hair I found I prefer the loose style curl that their light defining gel provides. I'm glad they offer trial sizes so that I could figure out which product I preferred without a huge bottle commitment. This gel does what it promises to!

I've used every curly product on the market; Deva Curl does work, but it's not my favorite brand. My curls and my 4 year old daughter's curls look great the first day with this product. However, the next day, my curls look like a mess and feel dirty, so I always end up throwing it up in an updo. (My daughter doesn't care if her hair feels dirty, lol. Her curls do look better longer than mine.) Compared to Ouidad products, I like Ouidad more just because I can go two days with my hair down without feeling like a clown. I end up with frizz with both, even using high end curly leave in conditioners and other frizz fighters, but I guess it's just the burden with curly hair. I will say, my hair dries quicker with Deva Curl and I do appreciate that fact and the fact that I can wash and go. With Ouidad, it takes forever to air dry and then I have to go in and touch up certain problem areas with a curling iron. : (
I would buy this again!!
bperigo from Boaz, AL
I'm currently doing the curly girl method. This gel is curly girl approved and loved by many. I love the smell, and the way it helps my hair hold curl without being crunchy! I didn't want to buy the full size product without testing it first, so the sample size was amazing for that.
Did not care for it
sweetrockajelly from CA
My hair feels dry and crunchy. I even put leave in treatment and dry end serum just to soften it, and it didn't.
Doesn't do anything for my curls
Klynn0716 from Illinois
I applied to wet/ damp hair and didn't blow dry.
Must Have for Curls!
MrsB from Minot, ND
I love this product. I love the definition it gives my curls. Without this product my curls would not be as defined as they are. This is a must have my hair are routine.

A must for curlies!!
My curls are alive again!
Gabi from San Diego
This has brought new life to my curls, and brought the volume and bounce back with it!
I have that wavy, not curly, mess of hair. This worked!
T Whit from Orlando
I am envious of all you curly hair girls. My hair, if I don't straighten dries a mess of loose, not stylish waves. I used this product and scrunche outward as it states and 💥 I had decent waves! Love it.
No flaking and NO crunch.
Better than expected
Kit_kat from Pembroke Pines, FL
I have ethnic hair. I used this product as described to keep my curls soft and bouncing. This product did this and much more. Kept me moisturized, soft not crunchy or too hard and product smells good. Very natural ingredients and Great buy. You may want to also use a light oil throughout the week for extended moisture.
