Wash your hair with DevaCurl’s One Condition Daily Conditioner to beat frizz and dryness.

Devacurl

Birchbox Breakdown

Curly-haired girls don’t want crispy, crunchy locks or undefined frizz. This gel, which is made specifically for thick, textured, and hard-to-manage curls, strikes a perfect balance. The results? Defined, bouncy curls that will have you packing up your blow dryers and flat irons for good.

How it Works

This hard working 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.

Gives a nice natural curl.
Purchased

I liked this product and found that after following its directions it did give a very nice, soft natural curl. However, I think my hair, in particular, needs a bigger "boost" for the curl to actually "take". Although, I would definitely recommend for quite curly hair or those seeking a beachy waved look.

Works for Wavy Hair

This was the second gel that I tried from Deva Curl. It isn't perfect, but it works okay for my wavy hair. I use the gel while wet, plop with a t-shirt, and usually blow dry by piling my hair into a diffuser. I do wish that the gel held better, but it works.

Good gel, but not quite worth the price

The gel holds curls fairly well, but not any better than the products I find at half, or even a quarter of the price. I go through the same process with each use, but still get varying results. It is definitely hydrating, but I think in the future I will invest my haircare dollars into a different product.

If you have any wave at all, try this...

I have wavy hair and could never get curls to form. It always looked frizzy instead of curly. The Deva line makes the curls form. You will be surprised at what it does to your hair if you have any wave at all. It's great.

Doesn't deal with the frizz

I used this product for about six months after being introduced to it at a Devachan Salon. Although it did help some with curl development, I had two major problems with it. The first problem was that, even though my curls were pretty solid (I have thin, fine hair, so my curls are pretty variable), it did nothing to address the frizz factor. In fact, I thought it made my frizz worse. Also, I found it made my skin itch terribly. I like the other Deva products, but this one did not work for me.

Great product for fine, curly hair.

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I tried it with samples of The Trio. The gel is lightweight but thick enough to cling to hair strands. Smells nice, did a great job of defining curls, and left little to no "crunch" in my curls after air-drying. The price for the 3-step system seems a little high, but that would be the only thing preventing me from buying this product in the full size.

Not good for thick hair

Maybe this product works for people with thinner/lighter hair, but I have to use so much it just gets sticky. The "crust" never formed and it made my hair feel really coarse. Also, my hair was still frizzy.

Pretty Good!

I have a mix between thick wavy and curly hair. Usually by 10 am my hair starts to get frizzy and I'll have to re-apply product. This gives me a big improvement and my waves/curls can last time I get home.

This stuff is awesome

I got a sample of the shampoo, conditioner, and this styling product. I absolutely loved it. It made my curls absolutely perfect, with no frizz and no crunch.

Curly but residue.

I looked the way my curls looked when I tried the product with the no poo shampoo and the conditioner but after my hair tried it still felt like there was stuff in my hair. I loved how my hair looked but it didn't feel the way I wished it would.
