    Comments about Kenra Professional Styling Gel 17:

    I like curl definition and a crunchy hold. My hair goes flat without it. Minimal product buildup. Only negative is that the tube is hard and I'm unable to get all out the product out of it

            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.

                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!

                  Comments about Kenra Professional Styling Gel 17:

                  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

                      • 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.

                          Mousse has more of a foam element than the gel!

                          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.
