The best for curlies

I love Deva Curl. I sue this gel every day. This and the One Condition are the perfect combo for making my curls look their best. My hairdresser introduced me to Deva products and I've never turned back,

I got this in my box with the poo and conditioner. I was slow to try it but really glad I did! I have pretty wavy hair and usually end up putting it in a pony tail when I air dry, but when I used this product I had great beachy looking waves. No effort! I now have the full line. thrilled!

This is a versatile and all around good gel for curly girls. It has a good hold and makes my hair look great - the next day it can even be 'reactivated' by just spraying my hair with a bit of water. I need a restock on it!

DevaCurl

I have wavy hair, so maybe this is better for real curls, but even the tiniest bit would make my hair feel dirty so fast. I usually don't like to wash my hair everyday but using this made me want to wash my hair by the end of the day!! It was just too heavy for my hair. It isn't as light as it claims.

There's better out there

Honestly, this is not all it is cracked up to be. I like DevaCurl for the most part but I hate the smell. It smells like a household cleaner to me :(
I wanted to really like it

Great gel!
Purchased

This is the first time I have used this product! I love it! I have not had any luck finding a good product for my curly hair. Everything I normally use tends to make my hair crunchy. This product left me hair feeling soft all day!

Finally a product I can use!
Purchased

I loved the sample and had to buy the full size bottle. I have allergies to MANY beauty products and am thankful for the simplicity of this defining gel. There is no sticky residue to rinse off of my hands after I apply it and my curls do not become crunchy as it dries. What a great product!

No doubt, I am DevaCurl Girl!

LOVE this product! Although, I have to admit, my hair can be seasonal and there are times that I need to switch it up, but THIS is the product that I use the majority of the year and have done so for...yikes...I don't think that I want to figure out exactly HOW long it has been now, I might feel old! We will just go with many years.

Simply squeeze a glump of this product into your palm, an amount that looks like it would be too much, apply to your hair, scrunch, air dry, re-scrunch to loosen things up and I have recently added using their hair spray along with it and I am left with lovely curls all day long. None of that "wet, too much product look" either, just natural looking, lovely curly hair.

Great Hold - but

I am a deva girl through and through, but this is not my favorite. The hold is great, but it dries my hair out and the smell of the product could be improved.

love this gel!

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.
