Default Anyone have problems with DevaCurl styling products

I've started using the Deva products. The local Ulta store carries them now and I had always wanted to try them. I miss the lather thing from regular shampoos, but overall the low-poo and OneC leave my hair looking and feeling great, so I'll stick with them.
The styling products are another story. First I tried Angell. My hair felt greasy until it dried, then it was really frizzy with no hold at all. I thought maybe I needed the Deva Leave-in, which I tried today. Maybe I used to much, but it left my hair a little coarse and greasy feeling. I'm thinking of just using the shampoo and conditioner, and keeping my usual styling products which are a shiner (similar to Pureology ShineMax) and Joico JoiWhip.
Anyone else have problems with the DevaCurl gel?

Neither of the gels worked for me. Angell didn't have anywhere near enough hold, and ArcAngell left my hair dry and dull looking. Then again, I'm not too fond of the rest of the line either. Just goes to show that there's nothing out there that works for everyone.

I love most of the Deva products...I wash with Condition One and when my hair is very grimy No-Poo and low poo..I love, love, love Angell the Arc Angell was way too heavy for my short hair maybe when it is longer..I use SIF after the Angell to release the cast made by the gel..The Leave in was also too heavy for my hair and i gave it to my friend for her daughters 3b hair and she loves it..

It took awhile of playing around with these products like how much to use..putting the gel in dripping wet hair, damp hair etc...for them to work for me...hope this helps..

The problem I have with the deva line gels is that they stop working after a few weeks. It's the weirdest thing. They work great at first, then I need to take a break for a few weeks before they'll work again.

I really like ArcAngell...it's my second favorite styling product next to my beloved JoiWhip. It actually offers the same hold with less crunch. But I also have to switch off because it seems to stop working after awhile.

Neither of the gels provided hold for me, even when I used them by the handful. Basically, once my hair was dry and the cast of the gel was broken, it was as if I hadn't put anything on at all, except that my hair felt producty. Leave-ins and Set it Free didn't make a difference.

I get better hold from drugstore gels, the trick is to find something that won't build up and isn't drying. I also like JoiWhip and get more hold from it than I did from the Angells.

My hair in general seems to shrug off deva products. It drives me crazy because they are such great products for so many curlies!

Default no go for too...

I've been using the Deva products for about 3 weeks now - low poo, one and angell. I hate the gel. No matter what way I put it in my hair, my hair feels SO dry (course) real nasty. I tried it with ST to and my hair still felt nasty, to the point where I re-wash. Last week I started to break out along my hair line which is new for me, so something in the shampoo or conditioner is irritating my skin. Yesterday was my last day trying the deva gel. I wanted it to work but enough is enough. It's not for my hair. I will stay with the poo/conditioner though.

What has been working for me lately is mixing the Angell with the ArcAngell. I get less crunch and more hold. I don't know if this will hold up when summer arrives, but for now, it seems to be fine for me.
