    Comments about Kenra Professional Styling Gel 17:

    Been using this product for years after showering on dampened hair that has been detangled first and then finger scrunched and then air dried. The soft curls that result are full and amazing. Looks as though I dried and curling ironed for an hour instead of a few minutes of prep.

        Comments about Kenra Professional Styling Gel 17:

        Started using this product several years ago at the suggestion of my stylist. I have little time or patience to fuss with my short hairstyle every day. She recommended this product and I've been using it, gratefully, ever since! I do not wash my hair daily, so I wanted something that provides curl-memory for my very straight hair without lots of sticky residue or weight. Kenya fills the bill perfectly!

          Use it almost everyday to hold my hair in place. It gives a little Spike to it which is what I want. I have short hair. My favorite thing about it is that it doesn't flake at all. But keep your hair in the place that it has to stay. I would highly recommend it. Number 17

            I use it for my curly hair but my husband uses it on his straight hair and does great for both. Holds without stiffness.

                  Use it daily! - I have very thin fine hair and need all the help I can get to add thickness to my hair once it has been dried and the curling iron applied to give me as much volume as possible.

                      • 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?

                          A:

                          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.
