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.

One of my favorites
Purchased

This is one of my favorite hair products. When I wear my hair curly, just a little of this light weight product helps enhance the curl and minimize frizz. It never leaves my hair stiff or sticky. Minimal fragrance if any, so it doesn't complete with my parfume, etc.

DevaCurl for the WIN!
Purchased

If you're a lady with twisty locks, you need to add an array of DevaCurl to your products now. This stuff is amazing. Its natural and works like a charm. It truly does give your curls good definition, without all the added frizziness or stiffness. Love me some DevaCurl!

Curls curls curls
Purchased

I have naturally wavy/curly hair. When I use this product after the shower my hair dries with shiny curls and waves that last and last without looking frizzy. It has kind of a green apple-ish scent when applied but it disappears as the product dries. I tried multiple other brands and many beach sprays. They did not deliver. Happy to have found this brand.

Love it!
Purchased

I have very curly, fine, goofy hair, and this gel was great. It was right weight, not sticky, and had FANTASIC hold without making my hair crunchy. I bought a full size of this after reading reviews (I never got a sample) and I am really happy I got it.

LOVE!!

I'm seriously considering buying this gel separately!! I loved my sample, it kept my typically frizzy curls nice and soft, with hardly any frizz!! Worked great with the matching shampoo and conditioner, but great on its own as well!

DevaCurl Light Defining Gel
Purchased

I had been searching for a light gel for a couple years. I had bought several gels but they were all too heavy. I have curly and wavy hair and the gels I bought all made my hair sticky, too curly, frizzy or weighed it down. When I received the samply of DevaCurl and used it I was very pleased with the results. I just purchased my second bottle and will use this product for many years to come.

The perfect gel

I absolutely love this gel, it's so light and doesn't leave my hair crunchy. After I use a curl cream, I scrunch the DevaCurl Light defining gel into my hair and then blow dry with a diffuser. After my hair is completely dry, I flip my head over and scrunch my hair to break the gel cast. This leaves my hair soft and shiny and gives me perfect curls.

works great!
Purchased

Provides light hold and keeps the frizz at bay. I got it as a sample and bought a full size bottle as soon as I ran out. Light scent that is not overpowering.
