How to Style Women’s Hair with Gel
What is Hair Gel?
Hair gel is a product used to style the hair, typically providing a sleek, shiny, and wet-look finish. It is often used to help create specific hairstyles, such as spikes or curls. Hair gel is typically made from a combination of water, alcohol, and chemicals that form a thick, viscous substance.
Preparing the Hair for Styling
It is important to prepare the hair for styling before applying the gel. Start by washing the hair with a mild shampoo and conditioning it with a good hair conditioner. Then, gently towel dry the hair until it is damp but not wet. Comb through the hair to remove any tangles and then apply a small amount of styling mousse to the hair. This will help the gel to adhere to the hair better and will help to keep the style in place longer.
Applying the Gel
Once the hair is prepared, it is time to apply the gel. Start by taking a small amount of the gel and rubbing it between the palms of your hands until it is completely warmed and spread evenly. Then, begin to work the gel through the hair, starting at the roots and working towards the tips. Be sure to coat each strand of hair with a thin layer of the product.
Creating the Style
Once the gel is applied to the hair, it is time to create the desired style. If you are looking for a sleek and wet-look finish, use a comb or brush to work the product through the hair. If you are looking to create curls or spikes, use your hands to shape the hair. Allow the gel to dry before styling the hair further.
Finishing the Look
Once the gel is dry, it is time to finish the look. To add extra shine, apply a light mist of hairspray to the hair. For a more natural finish, use a dryer sheet to gently brush through the hair, removing any excess product. Finally, enjoy your new style!
