Summer is here, and if you’re anywhere close to the equator, it’s freakin’ HOT! With all the heat and impending humidity, our hair just doesn’t play by our rules. Which means it’s time to take control with the right products to keep your hair in place. While hair gels might remind you of the most cringe-worthy looks of the early aughts, they’re actually great when you wanna slay the hair game.
As beauty trends always circle back, the age-old cycle has ushered in the return of Y2K fashion, poker-straight hair, pencil-thin brows, and more, but is the hair gel officially having a comeback? The answer is yes! As we create the likes of Bella Hadid’s signature snatched updo or the glossy, drenched styles flooding our FYPs at the moment, it’s clear that finding the best hair for your hair type should be at the forefront of your next beauty buy. So if you are interested in dipping your toes back into the gel pool, buy these hair gels for when you wanna pull off a slicked-back look.
If your hair is very fine, you should choose a lightweight gel – nothing too heavy because the hair is gonna look way thinner and stiff. You can go for Aveda Confixor Liquid Gel to achieve slick ponytails and more. It has a liquid-y consistency so it’s easy to use and you can layer it on the hair.
Those with thinning hair should act with caution when using hair gel, to make sure it doesn’t exacerbate damage and stressed-out strands. The trick here is to opt for products that boost volume and help thin areas appear fuller. This one by Nioxin is formulated to strengthen and thicken hair as you style it.
