Customer Reviews:

Great hold!

I love how this gel keeps my hair in place all day. It doesn't leave any residue and has a nice scent to it.

Too sticky

I found this gel to be too sticky and difficult to wash out of my hair. It also left my hair feeling crunchy and stiff.

Perfect for short hair

This gel is amazing for styling short hair. It provides a strong hold without making my hair look greasy or shiny.

Not for sensitive scalps

I have a sensitive scalp and this gel caused me to break out in a rash. It might work well for others, but it's not for me.

Smells bad

The scent of this gel is overpowering and unpleasant. It also didn't provide a strong hold for my thick hair.

Decent hold, but not long-lasting

This gel provides a decent hold for my hair, but it doesn't last throughout the day. I have to reapply it multiple times.

Product Summary:

The SexyHair Style Hard Up Hard Holding Gel is a robust styling product suitable for all hair types, offering a long-lasting hold. It is distinguished by its sweet and musky scent that stays throughout the day. This gel creates a full-bodied, non-greasy look with a distinctive spikey appearance that holds firmly.

It's particularly effective for thin or fine hair, providing a strong hold without weighing it down, and equally suitable for thick or coarse hair, thanks to its ease of application and even distribution. A small amount goes a long way, ensuring a strong hold that can last from one day to the next. It's ideal for maintaining wash n go styles in summer but requires washing to remove.

However, users should be cautious with the amount applied; excessive use can lead to stiffness, a blue tint, and potential issues like flaky dandruff or an itchy scalp. Priced between $10 and $20, the product's longevity is notable, with bottles and tubes lasting for several months or even years.
