Bad after-smell and falsely advertised as 'new arc angel '
Review by Jessica M. on 20 Sep 2021 review stating Bad after-smell and falsely advertised as 'new arc angel '
I was a big fan of arc angel, and ordered this product as it was advertised as the new incarnation of arc angel. The consistency and smell of the product are completely different , and my hair began to smell like cheap perfume.

Great product; smell, not so good!
Review by michelle b. on 19 Sep 2021 review stating Great product; smell, not so good!
I have used deva curl for years and love their products. Tried this on recommendation from my deva curl stylist and I think it works well: however, not any better than arch angel and I don’t like the smell. It has a weird chemical odor to it that other deva products don’t. I think I’ll stick with arc angel.

Crunchy unlike ArcAngel
Review by Erin H. on 13 Sep 2021 review stating Crunchy unlike ArcAngel
I had been faithful to ArcAngel for my curls for over a decade for its ability to provide hold without being crunchy. I had never found a product that was comparable. Now with the new formulation I cannot find the right balance. It either doesn't hold or it is crunchy. I sadly will be looking for a new product.

Worst Product Ever
Review by Courtney on 10 Sep 2021 review stating Worst Product Ever
This is the worst product I've ever used in my hair. The smell is AWFUL and way too overpowering. It smells like 10 Aeries all packed into the same space. The texture is terrible as well. It's way too gloopy and doesn't spread in my hands so I can run it evenly through my curls. I used this for the first time on a rainy day, and it didn't hold my curls together AT ALL. This is NOTHING compared to Arc Angel. I used Devacurl for years and FINALLY found products, a routine, and techniques that gave me the best curls of my life. Now I will probably never use another Devacurl product, especially this one, and will need to start from scratch all over again. It will probably take me years to find the best solution all because Devacurl changed a product that didn't need to change. The packaging shape is stupid as well. It doesn't fit on my shelf with my other products. I was planning on just filling an old bottle, but I will just never buy Devacurl again, unless it's Arc Angel.
