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 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.

Bad Hair Day

I decided to try this product as an alternative to my normal line of curly products because it is a little less expensive. Right off the bat it tells you to commit the ultimate in curly hair sins...scrunch your hair. I should have put it back down after reading that. I tried to use it with my normal techniques for styling my natural curls, but my hair was left feeling sticky, frizzy, and fluffy. The next day I decided to try it following their instructions by scrunching my hair. That only made it worse. I watched the how to videos on their website, I wanted to make sure that I was giving this product a fair chance. I eventually returned this product back to the store after a week of bad hair.

Not my pick

I was disappointed in this gel. It left my hair crunchy and hard, frizzy at the ends and around my face. I wish Birchbox would carry Deva Curl "Set it free" styling cream. It's a spray and leaves your hair soft. The gel I felt I had to use so much to get it to work that my hair was hard and not finger worthy. Not enough obviously just didn't work. My hair felt sticky and frizzy and unmanageable. I love Deva Curl but I wouldn't recommend this stuff.

Works good, but only with the help of other products
Purchased

So, i wasn't as impressed as i'd hoped to be with this. For one, I couldn't use alone, when i did, it really did nothing. But when i paired with mousse, it worked well. Another thing that i don't like is that it leaves residue, there are like, balls of gel in my hair. Wont be purchasing again.

I love this gel! It's not sticky at all and a little goes a long way! Also it smells really good

Enjoyed it and would use again

I really enjoyed this product. While it is pretty expensive for a college student it kept my hair frizz free and created defined curls. Once you break the gel cast the curls are bouncy and crunch free and hold their shape for the rest of the day. Definitely worth the price.
