Brylcreem Wet Look Gel
Advantages: Great look, Hold, smells nice too
I am ashamed to say that my hair is naturally curly. It is something that I am always trying to hide with various hair products but I don't like having my haircut too short as I like to have a bit to style with. That's where Brylcreem Wet Look Gel comes in handy. I have been styling my hair for about the last 10 or 11 of my 24 years on this earth and have mainly used Brylcreem in some form aswell as gels from the likes of Wella, Garnier and the really bad Lynx Gel (yes they made a bad product). Whilst I have used most of the products in the Brylcreem range I have mostly used this one over the last few years as I am very pleased with the results from this gel in particular.
Once you open the cap on the tube of gel you will get that lovely smell of the Brylcreem Gel, It's a lovely blue colour and it ooozes out of the tube easily for you to use as you choose. One of the great things about this gel is that you really don't need that much of it on your hair for it to produce good results. Like most gels it is best to apply this gel after you have washed your hair and it is preferable that your hair is towel dried for the best results. Once you have applied the gel it is really easy to style your hair into your chosen style or look.
My most common style when I use gel is to spike it up a little and have a stripe that goes down the middle of my hair. That said I do like to experiment with other styles and have sometimes used the gel as more of a wet look style with a straightforward spiked downward style. For the more styled look you might need a little more gel to get the best results but even then you would not need as much as a lot of other gels on the market. Use your fingers to create the style you are looking for and apply more if and when it's needed.
The main problem reported with a lot of cheaper gels is that the hold does not last as long as the slightly more expensive gels. You can purchase this particular gel for around £2 and this gel gives a better hold than it's relatively cheap price would have you think. It's widely used in hairdressers even with other more expensive gels available. With Brylcreem Wet Look Gel your style will last well in some tough environments like a hot and sweaty club. The best style that will last is the raised spikey look which should still be looking alright when you are back home after a good night out, Of course this will vary as some people's hair is better suited to hair products like this than other people.
I am very impressed with this gel and I am not the only one as it has won countless awards in the sector and has been advertised in just about every men's magazine going in the United Kingdom like FHM, Nuts, Loaded, Front etc etc. If you are looking for a new gel then try this one and you won't regret it. An upmarket hair gel for not much more than cheap and nasty hair gel. There are several offers on like buy one get one free and 3 for 2's so get them in a bundle with something else. It's the best smelling hair gel I have ever smelt.
