So glad I tried it

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.

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!

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.

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!
