A good hair gel is really hard to find. There are a million out there, both cheap and expensive. My husband and I both use gel, and we’re both picky about what we put in our hair. Lots of products out there leave your hair feeling crusty, or even worse, when the gel dries, it flakes and makes it look like you have cradle cap.
We had a product that we really loved, and unfortunately the company went out of business… so after trying product after product after product, we finally got Short Sexy Hair Hard Up Gel, which is pretty inexpensive. We both really like it. It’s very thick. You could use this gel to do some serious sculpting if you wanted to. I haven’t had the need for that yet, so I just use a micro-dot of this gel on my palm, rub my hands together, and lightly rub it over my hair to smooth it down. Then I try not to touch it until it’s dry. I have a lot of hair, and it ends up looking like a haystack unless I do something to keep it under control. This gel is a great product. It keeps the fly-aways under control and keeps my bangs falling in the right direction rather than all over the place. And if I ever decided to go for an Elvis look, I could just use four times as much gel and pull that off too!
