Great for wavy hair!

I have hair that can't seem to decide what it wants to be - wavy or curly! I loved this product, and was surprised to find that it actually does what it says it will do. I put it on my wet hair upside down like the instructions say, and then it did get crunchy while it dried. But once my hair is fully dry, the product doesn't feel crunchy after I've run my hands through my hair a few times. I've got nice happy wavy curls!

Ultra Defining

I use the Deva line of shampoos and conditioners on my ultra curly hair. I like that it's crispy when it dries. It keeps my hair where I want it. A simple scrunch releases the crispy feeling if you choose to. It does what it claims to do and it works.

The best of gels for curls!

While I'm not a huge fan of using gel in my curls (I prefer my curls to be a bit looser, more like waves rather than coiled and defined) this is my go-to for maintaining your natural curl. I love that while it can feel crunchy in the beginning when you slather it on your ends, when your hair dries and you scrunch your curls, the gel releases and you're left perfectly coifed and free of residue or stickiness! Definitely the perfect curl gel!

Devacurl is by far my favorite brand for my curls.
Purchased

I believe I have tried pretty all the Devacurl products and have not been disappointed in any of the products Devacurl offers. I use the Ultra defining gel in the morning when my hair is wet. I then use a diffuser to dry my hair. I have beautiful curls with volume that last my entire day.

Overall great gel

This is an overall great gel for holding beautiful curly hair. It's normally difficult for me to find one that holds well, yet light, and doesn't leave a yucky residue. This one does the trick.

Meh
Purchased

This wasn't the perfect answer I was hoping for. It works okay, but my thick coarse wavy/curly hair is still poofy and frizzy after using. I used for a couple months and applied in different ways in order to try to find a method that worked. (They definitely mean it when the instructions say to apply to wet hair. When I tried to tame a few frizz flyaways on dry hair it made my hair dull, and didn't tame anything.) Unfortunately, never found the perfect secret and went back to my previous gel that is not perfect, but better.

LOVE this hair gel
Purchased

I purchased this gel (with some skepticism) after reading an article on the best products for curly hair. Divacurl defining gel did not fail to impress. My curls look more defined, frizz free, and last all day. This gel is definitely worth the price!

Product to Live By

I have been using DevaCurl gel since I hit puberty, and I never leave the house without this product on my hair. It does not leave your hair looking crunchy or wet, but it has a noticeable impact on the shininess and bounciness of your curls. When paired with an oil, it frizz without leaving your hair feeling hard or greasy.

Awesome!

I love this styling gel. My hair is sometimes really hard to control, but this product does the trick. It stays tame all day and super soft with a nice smell!
