Tilt head forward. Scrunch curls in an upward motion to release excess water weight. Apply gel between palms and glide across hair before scrunching upward. Using the DevaTowel, scrunch again toward scalp to define curls. Once dry, scrunch to release cast revealing soft, beautiful curls.

      Comments about DevaCurl Travel Size Ultra Defining Gel:

      I have recently been trying to wear my natural hair to avoid heat damage and in hopes of seeing hair growth. The DevaCurl brand is exceptional for curly/wavy hair. I looked up reviews for a product that would tame my frizz or flyaways, I applied this at night and when i woke up my hair was tamed! YAY!!

              I thought it would help control frizz and define curls but I don't know if it was because of the winter weather but it really didn't do either of those things. I have heard nothing but good things before about this product so I don't know if it just didn't go well with my hair.

              I usually use Ouidad and wanted to try for a switch up product, sometimes my hair needs a product change for a few weeks. Although it worked ok, I needed to use more product than usual and once fully dry I got some frizziness on outer layers. Liked this better than the Arc Angel though. I have long, thick, curly hair. Probably would be fine for thinner hair.

                First I want to address the fact that this product was *created* by the author of the Curly Girl Book (Curly Girl Method) so YES it is curly girl approved! Lorraine Massey (the author) is the creator of DevaCurl! This gel is the bomb. Smells amazing. I layer it over Super Cream right out of the shower. No crunch but all the definition. I'm outside in heavy humidity every morning and this gel keeps my curls in check and frizz free. I love it!

                    If I could give zero stars, I would! I knew this was gonna be just another ''trend'' product that wouldn't live up to the hype but I bought it anyways and I was proven right! I swear this stuff actually took away my natural curls! It's not CG approved, but my $4 herbal essence totally twisted curl boosting mousse is by far superior to this over-priced garbage!

                    • Q:

                      I have fine, thinning hair that has some waves, some curlier parts and some kind of straighter parts. I want all of it to be curly but with volume. Is this the best product for me?

                      Do you brush this out before letting it air dry?

                        A:

                        For best results, spread DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel between palms and glide through wet hair. Scrunch upward toward the scalp to define your curls. Use a microfiber cloth or our DevaTowel in a scrunching motion to get the excess water out of your hair. Allow your hair to air dry. It is important to not touch your hair during the drying process as this may cause your hair to frizz up. Once dry, shake hair out at the root and scrunch curls again to release the moisture-protective cast and reveal soft, beautiful defined curls.
