Brylcreem Strong Gel
Advantages: Various hairstyles, easy to apply and style
Disadvantages: A couple of weak links compared to the wet look gel
Having taken advantage a while ago of an offer in Boots I found that whilst using The Wet Look Gel I had bought I had not really used the Strong Gel much and having recently had a hair cut and having enough hair to work with again I decided to try this one as the Wet Look is getting a little low. When my hair has grown back a little after a hair cut I like to spike it up and spend a few minutes before going out on a night out just sorting out my hair. So how did this particular Gel stack up compared to it's excellent stable mate Which I reviewed a while ago now.
With all Brylcreem Gels you don't really need as much of it as some other gels. It spreads well with a couple of small dollops of the gel spread through your fingers. Having said that It really depends on the style you want to how much you use in one application. You get a 150ml tube which will last quite a while as long as you don't use loads at a time. I find the best way to apply the gel is after you have washed your hair and have towel dried it but again this can depend on the style you want. The dampness of the towel dried hair will allow the gel to spread more evenly and easily so bear that in mind for most styles.
This is an excellent hair gel with the ability to create a number of different styles and looks. You can pretty much style your hair in a wide range of different looks without too much trouble. I find it particularly good for a little spikey look which is usually my preference. However it does have a slightly hard feel once it has set although you shouldn't experience any flakes and your hold should last a while, certainly a little longer than the majority of it's rivals. obviously the more you need depends on the style you go for but you shouldn't need to much gel to make the style work.
This is an excellent gel which gives you a wide range of styles quite easily, However there are a couple of minor points which I feel I need to pick up on. One is that it's not as good as the Wet Look gel which I reviewed previously as I find this one to be a little too hard on ocassions and the wet look just feels better to use. You can find this Hair Gel available for anything around £3 which isn't too bad for the quality of results you get but when on sale it's worth taking advantage. So overall It's a recommended Gel which is another excellent Hair Product from Brylcreem.
Summary: A solid gel.
