Nicely defined.....

....curls that are soft and never crunchy. I used this product today in a locker room and the women there could not believe that all I did to style was to rub this into my wet curls and dry naturally. Great product.

Not my pick

I was disappointed in this gel. It left my hair crunchy and hard, frizzy at the ends and around my face. I wish Birchbox would carry Deva Curl "Set it free" styling cream. It's a spray and leaves your hair soft. The gel I felt I had to use so much to get it to work that my hair was hard and not finger worthy. Not enough obviously just didn't work. My hair felt sticky and frizzy and unmanageable. I love Deva Curl but I wouldn't recommend this stuff.

This wasn't sampled, but I love DevaCurl and need to share this amazingness. After many years of curls and trying almost all products, DevaCurl is a godsend. I use this every day to style my hair along with the One Condition, and it leaves my hair exactly how I want it-- styled neatly and still touchable. Thanks to Birchbox for the styling combination! DevaCurl is a girl's BFF to infinity and beyond.

Must Try!

If you have curly hair, this is a must. I used to use gel but it made you hair very crunchy, then I used moose for about 5 years. I went to store to purchase moose, they were out of stock. Salesperson helped me and told me I have to try this. The price made me hesitate , but I bought it and have now used its for 2 years and will continue to use this!!!!

Very Good Product.
Purchased

After receiving a sample set of DevaCurl products in my Birchbox, I purchased this Gel. It has been a game changer for my curly hair, and the scent is so lovely. It smells almost like a fresh apple. I highly recommend this product to curly girls!

Bad Hair Day

I decided to try this product as an alternative to my normal line of curly products because it is a little less expensive. Right off the bat it tells you to commit the ultimate in curly hair sins...scrunch your hair. I should have put it back down after reading that. I tried to use it with my normal techniques for styling my natural curls, but my hair was left feeling sticky, frizzy, and fluffy. The next day I decided to try it following their instructions by scrunching my hair. That only made it worse. I watched the how to videos on their website, I wanted to make sure that I was giving this product a fair chance. I eventually returned this product back to the store after a week of bad hair.

Super soft locks!
Purchased

I have used other defining gels, but I'm so glad to have DevaCurl in my life! I have very long, natural curly, wavy hair and this product is so perfect! I love that it keeps my natural curls in check without leaving behind a crunchy, heavy feel to my hair.

Smells wonderful
Purchased

I not only love the way it makes my hair feel it makes it smell wonderful! it doesn't leave my curls hard like most gels do. and it helps with the frizz. I honestly don't know why I didn't try this sooner! I wear my hair curly everyday now!

Definitely works

Gives me nice defined waves, not frizzy or crunchy, and doesn't make my hair feel sticky. I was skeptical before trying this, but it definitely does what it says!
