          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Style Sexy Hair Hard Up Hard Holding Gel:

          My bf is very picky about his hair gels. Hes a sales man and works 24/7, so a long lasting hair gel is super important. This gel doesnt flake and it lasts forever! Now if only they could come out with a gel this strong in a matte version. It is a bit shiny, but its not overkill.

          • Smells Great

          • Curly Hair
          • Thicker Hair

          Comments about Style Sexy Hair Hard Up Hard Holding Gel:

          I purchased this to try on my naturally curly hair. When I use other products with it, it does just fine. I can't use this product alone. Even though it claims to have a high hold factor, it doesn't. It does, however, provide plenty of shine! Giving it three stars because of the hold factor. I could do without this product and simply use a shine finishing spray.

              A:

              For best results, emulsify longer between the palms of your hair to dilute product and apply. You can also mix with a crème or oil product such as Style Sexy Hair Slept In Texture Crème or Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Oil to dilute product.

              We make a lighter version called Not So Hard Up Gel. Not So Hard Up Gel, is a softer but still ultra-shiny version of the best-selling Hard Up Gel. Much like the Hard Up Gel & Slept In Crème styling cocktail – voted Sexy Hair's # 1 loved cocktail by the education team for years – Not So Hard Up Gel is the perfect ratio of all day hold and flexibility. Show your softer side with Not So Hard Up Gel!

              Have fun, and enjoy!
