Devacurl

Birchbox Breakdown

DevaCurl founder Lorraine thinks that curly-haired girls should embrace their natural texture, and this cult favorite gel is what turned us into believers. Perfectly defined curls that aren’t crunchy, frizzy, or sticky? We’re sold.

How it Works

This lightweight gel “crystallizes” the wet curl until it dries, creating a barrier against the elements that get between you and your best curls. Natural botanical extracts of wheat, soy, and chamomile nourish hair without sulfates, silicone, or parabens.

How to Use

Tilt your head forward and scrunch a liberal amount of gel into wet curls in an upward motion. Whether you air-dry or diffuse your hair, keep your hands off it until it’s completely dry! Once dry, scrunch and shake your curls to dissolve the hardened “cast,” revealing bouncy, defined spirals.

Good Hold

I really liked the way DevaCurl controlled and defined my curls. I didn't rally like the way the product felt when I touched my hair, but it did such a beautiful job of holding my curls, it negated any criticism I might have.

Light & Fresh
Purchased

Light & not sticky, this gel is great for girls with wavy to curly hair.. I myself have wavy but this defines my curls and allows me to get great volume with a little tease at the crown. Love it!

Perfect gel
Purchased

I love this gel. It's light yet strong enough for my fine curls, and doesn't weigh them down. It washes right out with just water (I rarely use shampoo).

Love this product
Purchased

This gel is perfect! It's not too heavy and my curls just love it. One note of caution - a little goes a long way (I can't imagine what the heavier gel option that DevaCurl is like). The scent is pleasant and I love that it doesn't have a bunch of harmful chemicals.

Nice addition to the system
Purchased

I have tried every hair gel, cream and oil on the planet for my dry curly hair. I'm addicted to the Deva Curl system. Love the shampoo and conditioner and really like the gel. I feel that it is a nice compliment and feels good on my hair, And not too crunchy.

not so sure
Purchased

My hair stylist used this on me and I loved the results. When I bought some I was disappointed. First, the fact that it doesn't lather makes me feel like my hair isn't getting the coverage needed to clean it. Also, it didn't do much for the natural curl I have.

DevaCurl for life!
Purchased

I'm absolutely obsessed with the DevaChan products! I usually use their stronger gel, but birch box doesn't carry that one so I went for the Light Defining Gel. My hair is REALLY curly so I could use a bit more hold.

It's ok.
Purchased

My hair looked pretty good with the DevaCurl Light Defining Gel so long as I also used the DevaCurl shampoo and conditioner... but those didn't make my hair feel very clean and when I switched to a different shampoo/conditioner combination I couldn't seem to get very good results with the gel. I had a lot of frizz and my curls weren't well-defined.

Too light

I got this gel as part of a 3 piece set. It is a good light gel, but m y hair needs a heavier gel to set the curls. I prefer using the regular gel instead.
