DevaCurl founder Lorraine thinks that curly-haired girls should embrace their natural texture, and this cult favorite gel is what turned us into believers. Perfectly defined curls that aren’t crunchy, frizzy, or sticky? We’re sold.
Got this gel after using the DevaCurl Whipping Cream (LOVED IT!). I went into another store that carried the products and she highly recommended the Defining Gel - easy to use after shower on wet hair. I was sold. After using this gel for about a week I felt build up on my scalp and noticed a bit of flakes so I switched up and used the DevaCurl Styling Cream for comparison - no build or flaking. Overall, I followed the directions on bottle and the advice from a trained consultant - using after shower on wet hair and leaving alone to let air dry occasionally using a microfiber wrap. My scalp EVERYTIME has build up and flakes like dandruff from using the gel. It does hold a decent curl with no scrunchy like look.3
So, i wasn't as impressed as i'd hoped to be with this. For one, I couldn't use alone, when i did, it really did nothing. But when i paired with mousse, it worked well. Another thing that i don't like is that it leaves residue, there are like, balls of gel in my hair. Wont be purchasing again.2
I love this gel! It's not sticky at all and a little goes a long way! Also it smells really good5
I really enjoyed this product. While it is pretty expensive for a college student it kept my hair frizz free and created defined curls. Once you break the gel cast the curls are bouncy and crunch free and hold their shape for the rest of the day. Definitely worth the price.4
Absolutely love this product. Very weightless allowing my curls to bounce and have volume without being weighted down or frizzy! Will definitely be purchasing this product again. Thanks DevaCurl!5
Bee. Using this for 4 years. Nothing beats it. It's amazing for my curly hair.5
....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.4
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.2
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.5
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!!!!5
