You need to be extra careful when buying hair gel! There are way too many hair gel brands and most of them are complete garbage(yes, i said that). Ever noticed guys with those extra shiny hairs and oily face?

I personally don’t like hair gel as i find them very sticky(flaking), we men like to touch our hairs (setting them and stuff) through out the day, imagine that gel coming all over hand and face. Nasty business!

However, there are some good quality hair gel for men that can be very useful to put on that extra shine and hardness to your hairstyle.
