Styling with Gel
Gel is probably the best-known hair styling product, and it has been around in one form or another for centuries. Belonging to the category of products known as fixatives, gel holds hair stiffly in place once it dries while maintaining a wet and sleek look that is characteristic for certain styles. You can use gel to spike hair or slick it back, and different products have varying levels of hold. Gel can also be used a little more subtly if you apply it to wet hair and then blow it dry--which minimizes the glossy look while still ensuring that hair stays in place.
Creams for Men and Women
Shaping and styling creams are among the most popular styling products
for people with hair of varying lengths. These formulas are in the category of pliables because they can be restyled as needed throughout the day and don't cement hair into a certain shape. Forming creams generally have a pretty strong hold and medium gloss once they dry, and they can achieve similar results to gel without being quite as dramatic. Volumizing and texturizing creams add bulk to hair, and you can also find creams that specifically help bolster the effects of a curling or straightening iron.
Advantages of Salon Products
Salon-quality formulas are the products trusted by hair care professionals, and they can help perfect your look. These formulas are trusted by the pros and are designed to look great all day long. Many salon products
also often have vitamins, minerals and botanical extracts that can help nourish hair rather than causing damage.
