Why You Need It

Love gel but fear the dreaded crunch? This soft hold gel gives you the definition you’re looking for without being crunchy. The non-drying formula with wheat and soy proteins surrounds your curls with a non-sticky curl cast that enhances shape, fights frizz, and amplifies shine and bounce.

Stylist Tip

Devachan stylist Dennielle

“For best results, take your gel into the shower! After conditioning and getting curls “ribbon-y”, apply Light Defining Gel to soaking wet hair, scrunching lightly to distribute. Then take small sections and scrunch from ends to roots, squeezing tightly. Scrunch with the DevaTowel or a t-shirt to absorb excess moisture after applying styling products and then diffuse or air-dry.”

Dennielle, Devachan Stylist

how to use

The key to our gels is to apply to soaking wet curls and then scrunch, scrunch, scrunch! Give ‘em another scrunch when fully dry to release the curl cast… and unleash soft, bouncy gorgeousness.

Soft curls
Review by Nancy M. on 2 Mar 2021 review stating Soft curls
This gel is kind of amazing. My hair feels soft and looks fuller after applying. I've even been using it at night and going to sleep before it dries. That's not the best way to use it, but even then it works. :)

Love it!
Review by Ora M. on 18 Feb 2021 review stating Love it!
I love everything about this product— from the fragrance to the light, but predictable hold. It is not sticky and doesn’t leave my hair crunchy.

Great product!
Review by Courtney C. on 18 Feb 2021 review stating Great product!
I use this with the cream to extra hold and shine. It is great! Let it dry crunchy then scrunch the crunch away. Gives great hold and texture for fullness. Love it!
