Not for me
Purchased

I feel like this separated my curls and made them stringy instead of making them big and bouncy. Weird texture too. Kind of straw like. I prefer their Curl Cream.

Not good for thick hair
Purchased

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.

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.

Good gel, but not quite worth the price
Purchased

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.

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.

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.

The smell..

I really hate how the diva products smell as a whole, but this gel was particularly bad to me. I used the diva products for a couple years and it just never felt like it was enough. I also experienced kind of crunchy curls - i stopped using. Maybe they have improved in the last few years.

I love this and I don't have curly hair!

I got this as a sample and I love the texture that it adds to my hair. If you have waves or a textured hairdo, give it a try!

Follow directions!
Purchased

If you actually follow the directions, your curly locks will love this product. If you just apply like any other product, you'll have weird crunchy hair. I apparently used it wrong the first time and was not impressed. Once I realized my mistake, I get excellent voluminous curls! Scrunch well once dried and it doesn't feel crispy or heavy at all.

Good gel but not strong enough for me

Don't get me wrong, I really like this gel, but I prefer something that is going to provide a stronger hold that is going to take me into day 2. I have 2C/3A curls. I like the texture of this gel -- it's not too sticky and you can use a LOT of it. It also smells nice. I like to wash my hair every other day and if it had taken me into day 2 I would have given it 5 stars. If I want to change up my routine I'll use this but I wouldn't purchase again for my particular head of hair.
