With all the products available these days, it’s easy to overlook hair gel. However, this is still one of the most necessary items in any at-home arsenal! Whether you’re looking to keep strands straight all day, master a razor-sharp bob like Kim Kardashian, or de-frizz a head full of curls, these gel products can help you with it all.
Bumble and Bumble Sumogel
This isn’t your middle school hair gel! Bumble and Bumble describe it as “styling gel, all grown up.” It’s a great option for styling slicked-back looks and short haircuts. We also recommend the brand’s Anti-Humidity gel oil for curly textures.
Fekkai Sheer Sculpt Styling Gel
Fekkai’s Sheer Sculpt gel is firm yet flexible, and it has an invisible finish that looks totally natural. We recommend this when you want a medium hold.
Kinky Curly Curl Custard Gel
This styling gel helps your curls live their best life with a natural formula that stops frizz, adds shine, and creates definition. A small amount goes a long way, so this tub will last you forever.
Kenra Styling Gel #17
Fine hair, meet your match! This gel works with all types, but it’s especially loved by those with straight strands. Just add to damp hair, blow-dry, and go.
Sexy Hair Hard Up Gel
For a serious stronghold, you can rely on this gel to keep hair in place all day. Fans also love that it doesn’t have a strong fragrance or weird chemical scent.
R+Co Wall Street Strong Hold Gel
Trying to pull off a chic, sleek bun? You need this gel! Along with great packaging, it has vitamin A for added body and sheen, and glycerin to keep hair moisturized.
