My coily curls are back
Review by Syndi B. on 8 Feb 2024 review stating My coily curls are back
I have been a curly-headed girl my entire life. I had curly hair when there really was NO product to tame my locks. For years, I used Paul Mitchell products. I always hated the 'crunchy' way my hair felt. DevaCurl's Ultra Defining Gel has been a game changer! My curls are defined and soft and stay that way for days! I tell EVERYONE I know about DevaCurl products, and how they have changed my hair for the better! Now my hair has lots of curls and no frizz!

I like this a little better than the cream, but it is a little too expensive
