Birchbox Breakdown

Curly-haired girls don’t want crispy, crunchy locks or undefined frizz. This gel, which is made specifically for thick, textured, and hard-to-manage curls, strikes a perfect balance. The results? Defined, bouncy curls that will have you packing up your blow dryers and flat irons for good.

How to Use

Tilt your head forward and scrunch a liberal amount of gel into wet curls in an upward motion. Whether you air dry or diffuse your hair, keep your hands off it until it’s completely dry! Once dry, scrunch and shake your curls to dissolve the hardened “cast,” revealing bouncy, defined spirals.

Great for wavy hair!

I have hair that can't seem to decide what it wants to be - wavy or curly! I loved this product, and was surprised to find that it actually does what it says it will do. I put it on my wet hair upside down like the instructions say, and then it did get crunchy while it dried. But once my hair is fully dry, the product doesn't feel crunchy after I've run my hands through my hair a few times. I've got nice happy wavy curls!

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.

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.

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.

Not Enough Result

Had high hopes for biracial hair. Product did not deliver. Ingredients out weighed any good. The Curlz brand delivers in good healthy ingredients and in styling.
