love this gel!
Purchased

I'm always on the hunt for a light gel that doesn't crunch or keep the "wet" look. I am fairly new to Devacurl and will likely be for a long time! My hair ranges from tight ringlets at the nape to loose frizzy curls at the crown. The gel (along with the nopoo and conditioner) helps unify all my curls, keep them tame, and cuts down bigtime on frizz. Definitely would recommend this to anyone with curly hair. My only con is that I find the smell unpleasant compared to a lot of other hair products.

Love!
Purchased

I was so suprised as to how much I enjoy this product! I admit to a little trial and error trying to figure out exactly how much to use. I ended up realizing I need to use much more than I initially thought. The best part about this product is how it defines my curls perfectly, and can then be "scrunched" out releasing perfectly soft bouncy curls. This really made summer a much more enjoyable season.

would recommend for S-shaped curls
Purchased

I have fine hair and S-shaped curls and am always looking for something that will give enough definition to my curls without getting crunchy. This product is one of the better ones that I've found. I also purchased the shampoo/conditioner which I like too, but my curls look just as good when I use the gel with regular shampoo/conditioner. I got the best results putting it in when my hair was very wet, using a frizz-reducing serum and shaping the curls before spraying with a drugstore brand hairspray.

Wonderful product!

I really like this product. I have been looking for two years for something that works for my hair. The gel is very light and really defined my curls. I have told all of my friends about it.

Love!

I have very curly hair that is relatively thick and I love this! A lot of products tend to weigh my hair down, but the gel was very light weight and got rid of friz. Definitely recommend!

Best stuff yet!
Purchased

I heard about this threw my hair stylist. The gel works great, and the Deva Curl cutting technique is the best thing for my hair. I'm glad to have finally found a system that works for my hair type. Because of my budget/thriftiness and the price of the gel, I limit myself to only using it on days when I actually care what my hair does.

Best gel for my curls, by far
Purchased

I switched to the Curly Girl method for my hair about 6 months ago, and the price tag on the DevaCurl line kept me from trying it out, so I was thrilled when all 3 steps showed up in my birchbox. I loved them all, but came back to buy the full size of this gel - I was using a drugstore brand mousse before since it's so hard to find products with no silicone, but this stuff is amazing. Never sticky or gluey, keeps my curls intact until my hair is dry and doesn't leave a ton of weird residue on my hands after I scrunch off the cast. Love it, love it, love it.

Perfect curls every time

I bought this after receiving it as a sample and I love it. It's light but keeps my curls defined. Just be sure to work it evenly through your hair or you'll get a little crunch at the ends.

Defined curls but Simba style!

I liked the curls the three products gave me (No-poo, conditioner and light gel), but as the day went on, my hair grew bigger and bigger. Simba had nothing on my fro!

This might be great for those nights out when I really need some volume, but for every day use, it was a bit much.
