“Apply Ultra Defining Gel to soaking wet curls after you applied your leave-in and any other styling products so that it helps lock them in.”

ultra defining gel 101
Our gels form a curl cast that covers curls to ensure they dry defined with frizz control. Once curl are dry, it is easily scrunched away.
No, all DevaCurl gels are formulated to leave curls feeling soft and touchable without residue or crunchiness. Scrunch when dry to release the curl cast and create an even softer finish.
It’s all about the hold! Ultra Defining Gel gives strong hold and Arc AnGEL provides maximum hold (our strongest). Choose the one that’s right for you based on how much hold your curls need.
The great thing about DevaCurl gels is that they can be used on all curl types. Choose one based on the amount of hold you need. Ultra Defining Gel is great for waves that need that extra oomph to help lock in definition.
Ultra Defining Gel has a starfruit and mango scent that is tropical and succulent.
how to use
Apply your gel like a Deva – to soaking wet curls – to help lock in the definition and moisture provided by the water. And give a good scrunch, scrunch, scrunch!

Review by Janet C. on 13 Sep 2020 review stating Product changed
I loved this product in my last 3 bottles (pump size) but my last one, bought in May 2020, is much thinner and watery. I cannot lean over with the product in my hands bc it runs through my fingers and all over my clothes, rug and floor. I struggle to actually get it in my hair without dropping half of the three pumps it takes for my hair. So, I have tried using one pump and another and another so I can keep it in my palm which works somewhat but it makes my hair so much more wet and doesn't allow me to get the product all through my hair and scrunch it like when it was thicker. I prefer to air dry and now this wetness pulls it down at the part. I have soft curls and I do not like that at all. It used to take 2 hours to dry but now it takes 3 and it is flat at the crown. If I want to wash it at night, it takes far too long to dry. I LOVED this stuff but now I'm going to be trying other products. They've changed something. It was great! Change it back.
