I actually have curls again and no frizz
Purchased

I use this as the directions say to do and have no problems. I have yet to have to break the "curl cast" I haven't had any. If you go to Devacurl website it's got better directions then Birchbox and what I love is it has how to videos! I will keep buying the devacurl products but I'll get it through them instead. They've got the products that Birchbox keeps taking away better prices alot of times and the sizes you can buy are great!

So glad I tried it
Purchased

I have curly hair, and I'm in the process of growing out a pixie cut. Yikes! My curls are back with a vengeance. This product has helped me manage them, and learn to appreciate them. The bottle is a substantial size. I apply it to my wet hair in sections, scrunching it in, and then I air dry. This is not nearly as sticky as other gels I've used, and it is not drying out my hair. If you air dry, it will get a bit crunchy, but I need that stronger hold. It's also true that if you scrunch again once dry, the crunchiness will disappear. It also reactivates pretty well if you spritz with water. I must thank Birchbox and all the reviews, I will stick with this product for life!

AMAZING
Purchased

I've been scrunching my hair for years. THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER USED FOR CURL. It's amazing. Just follow the instructions. Step out of the shower, and put it in your hair. Don't even think about touching your hair with a towel. And when it drys it looks amazing with no frizz.

Nice Gel
Purchased

This gel works well, smells nice and doesn't leave a sticky residue. I use it after spraying with a heat protectant and then use hot rollers after my hair is dry. Without it, the curl won't even last an hour. This helps maintain the curl most of the day (I have heavy, thick hair) without making it feel stiff.

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.

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.

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!
