    I use this gel before blow drying my hair; it helps control my thick hair while also giving some volume.

          My daughter is a competitive gymnast and with a lot of the meets they compete first thing in the morning hours from home so we do her hair the night before. Her braids look just as good the next morning as they did before she slept on it. I apply the gel to wet hair and style it and every time it works perfectly!

                It gives the hold I need without feeling stiff when styling.

                  I have short hair layers and this helps keep the shorter layers from flipping out the other way where they are sticking out.

                          • Q:

                            Hi. I use this through all my shoulder length hair after all styling is finished. I know this product is for strong hold. But after i put in hair, then I brush through the entire hair with a comb many times. Is this ok? Or is this not the right product to be brushing or combing through it after wards?

                              Kenra Style Gel 17 Provides excellent support for any style controlling coarse, unruly hair textures while imparting fullness and shine. This product does not offer protection from damaging heat from styling tools. You might try adding Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Foam to your product regimen for that heat protection you are looking for.

                              Styling Gel has a hold factor of 17 out of 26, so it will provide a firm hold on its own. For an even stronger hold, use with Volume Spray 25.
