Choosing Hair Gels (Buying tips)

Ingredients:  If you want a hair gel with an extra strong hold, choose one with a more viscous consistency. It should also contain cationic polymers as its main ingredient along with copolymer of vinylpyrrolidone, methacrylamide, and N-vinylimidazole.

Moisturizers: Look for a hair gel with moisturizers such as aloe vera to condition your hair and prevent it from drying.
