Bring back Arc Angel!!
Review by Amie on 23 Nov 2022 review stating Bring back Arc Angel!!
Why are you trying to pass off this new gel as "arc angel?" This is NOT arc angel. The scent is way too strong. Do not like the new texture at all. It styles fine, but will have to find a new gel due to these other issues.
When I first started using deva products (about 15 years ago) I threw out every other hair product I owned. Been faithful ever since. Why mess with a good thing? Bring back arc angel.... please!!!!!
PS . Also, new green bottles are terrible too.

Hold Up
Review by Deanna K. on 10 Nov 2022 review stating Hold Up
The gel has a great hold. However it’s not moisturizing so it’s drying my hair out. I have color. I paired the gel with the primer as a base, and the supercreme as the styling crème. I noticed that my curls aren’t locking. They tend to separate into smaller strands. It’s also gives off a lot of flakes midweek. Not good for my black or dark clothes.

Looks like mucous
Review by Judith M. on 7 Nov 2022 review stating Looks like mucous
I have used Arc Angel, which was always a clear substance, for a long time. So I ordered Supreme Defining Gel because it is supposed to be the new name for Arc Angel. Ugh, it looks like mucous. The Light Defining Gel has a yellow cast to it, neither one is pleasing. And I really dislike the squat, Shrek colored bottle. Shrek was lovable, these space taking bottles are not.

Complete & total fail
Review by PacificaFunkster on 29 Sep 2022 review stating Complete & total fail
The reformulation is completely abysmal. Less than 24 hours later and I look worse than I used to look on day 5 !!! Completely sticky with a strong and disgusting fragrance - I woke in the night from the smell of it! Frizz like crazy, and I can TASTE the gel on my fingers after touching my hair. This does not stay put, you're fired.
