Did not like…..
I’ve use many gels on my hair, and this is my least favorite. I’d rather use Bedhead than this, and that flaked like crazy. This felt gooey, stiffened the hair to the point that you could not manage it w/out alot of breakage. I need a gel that will keep the hair in place, but I can still run my fingers thru. There is one at wally world that is cheap and does the trick. I just bought some Rene Furterer hair gel and will comment on that soon.
I should have paid attention to the ingredients. But this gel contsins parabens. For the price, one would think they would have used something other than this cancer causing crap.
I like this product a lot because I can shape my hair to spikes and it stays put, it doesn’t leave any white or dirty looking flakes on your hair like most hair gels do. the only thing is I don’t like feeling my hair once I have put it on, it feels like a porcupine died up there. And the gel itself is very gooey on your hands, so no, you can’t just wipe it off on your clothes when you’re done with your hair.
Yuk…waste of money
yuk! I have a blonde pixie cut….this stuff is gooey and doesn’t do a thing for my hair. just weighs it down. won’t be using it. will probably give it away if anyone wants it.
I have used this "Hard up Jel" for many years I love it. It doesn’t flake or get sticky. It holds grey, course hair very well. Would not use anything else. One suggestion, put a small amount on your hand and rub hands together before applying. Otherwise you will get big globs on your hair. Wonderful product
Good for Very Short Hair
I think this would be great for very short hair. I have short hair, but not short enough. I would like to see how this works on short spiky hair. When you hair is a little longer it gets too sticky and hard to manage, you have to apply as quickly as possible and not brush, but pick quickly to style. Again, would be great for Very Short Hair.
son loves it
I bought this for my son when he got his hair cut short and the beautician recommended this because of it’s strong hold and my son uses it everyday and loves it. It’s very pricey though but lasts quite a long time and it doesn’t make his hair feel all sticky like other products do. Would recommend to everyone who doesn’t want all that gunk in there hair.
ONLY THING TO USE ON REAL SHORT HAIR!!
I’VE USED THE GEL FOR YEARS!!! I’VE TRIED OTHERS-GAVE EM AWAY! I ALWAYS COME BACK TO HARD UP GEL!!! IT’S WORTH EVERY PENNY AND IT KEEPS YOUR HAIR IN PLACE. YOU CAN REVIVE YOUR HAIR BY JUST DAMPENING A LITTLE AND RESTYLING!!! IT WORKS!!!
This is the only gel my husband will use so we buy it in bulk here. Good deal/works really well and is too expensive when bought at the salon.
I do not have short hair. I have shoulder length curly hair. I use mousse, then this gel, then a very small amount of another gel. This gel is much better than the cheaper gels in the store.
Works great, lasts a long time, but you constantly have to unclog the pump
I really like this stuff — it provides a great hold to my very fine hair. The pump size has lasted me for over a year.Unfortunately, it winds up clogging the pump so you have to clean it out every couple of days. It is so sticky that it is hard to even get it off your fingers and get into the garbage. I actually have a very thin crochet hook to "scoop out" the gunked up blue goo.If you need something that will provide some "oomph" to your hair, this will do it. However, if you have to be prepared to constantly clean the pump. Alternatively, just go for the squeeze bottle and you won’t have to clean out the pump.[NCJAR]
Great Product, Hold Strong
The gel holds strong and doesnt feel too bad. Use a little for help or a lot to stick. This is a really great product for short hair, a must.
What can you say about this product other than you definitely get what you pay for. I call this contact cement in a bottle made for hair. This product has a firm hold that last throughout the day and is pretty good at weathering a night of sleep. This bottle size last a long time and is easy to apply. Shipping was prompt and secure.
