I was in Wal-Mart with my husband last week and the girl checking us out overheard that I was a hairstylist. She the politely asked if she could ask me a hair question. I said sure and she proceeded. She said her hair is natural and she wanted to know of any good gels or pomades that could help slick her hair into a ponytail. She tried the “brown” gel, Jam, and others but by mid-day its no longer slick, but a frizzy ponytail. Her hair was in a ponytail that day so I could see for myself what the gel failed to do.
There are two products that I told her may work for her needs. The first was Hick’s Edges Pomade. My client suggested this product to me a while back and it works really good! Hicks doesn’t clump on the hair but it is best to use it on clean, dry hair. It retails for about $15 but you can find it online cheaper on some sites. They had a website a while back but now I can’t seem to find it!
The second product is a bit like Hick’s but much cheaper. I’ve never tried it but it’s the Organic Root Stimulator Edge Control Hair Gel. The gel retails for about $5 at your local beauty supply and online. I’ve seen really good reviews about this product on YouTube. I’ll make sure and try it out for you guys really soon!
