Not as good as the original

I'm disappointed with the new line. My curls are less defined than the original formulas.

Bring Back Set it Free!
Review by Alayna on 9 Jun 2022 review stating Bring Back Set it Free!
I bought this after Set it Free was discontinued. I do not like using it but will continue to in small amounts since I already bought it :\ This leaves my hair crunchy. I find that my curls are less defined when I use it as if it is weighing them down. The stream when it comes out is too focused and intense on one spot so I think it applies better when I spray it in my hands and then distribute it to my hair. Set it Free was a great product that made my curls shiny and defined so this is a poor substitute.

Disappointed About Product Changes
Review by Emily on 6 Jun 2022 review stating Disappointed About Product Changes
The Curl Maker spray gel was truly a "holy grail" product for me – it gave me great hold that lasted 4+ days without weighing down my fine, very-low-porosity 2C hair. No other gel or styler has ever come close to the amazing results I got with Curl Maker. Why reformulate a great product? I'll be hoarding my precious last bottle of Curl Maker while I look for another brand whose product line might work better for me than this new defining spray gel.

Don’t waste your $$
Review by kellie s. on 30 Apr 2022 review stating Don’t waste your $$
Terrible product!
I’m a Deva fan and typically Deva delivers on its promises. But not this time.
No definition for me….actually did nothing but make my hat flat! 😞😞😞

Holds my flyaway hair!
Review by Margaret P. on 3 Apr 2022 review stating Holds my flyaway hair!
I use this lightly as it comes out a little thick. It does not really spray, but isn’t sticky and doesn’t weigh my hair down.
