Over the years I’ve gone through my fair share of hair gels, from the old school Lets Jam Conditioning Gel, to every natural girls favourite Ecostyler, and no gel, I repeat no gel, has laid my edges down as well as my new favourite Gorilla Snot Gel
As I type I am currently one week and four days into the LYT 6 Month Protective Style Challenge, and I just can’t get enough of these EvaWigs units [styling video coming soon]. The only downside [if I dare even call it that], of wearing these staight haired units is that my curly edges stand out like a sore thumb!
Now before I discovered the Gorilla Snot Gel, Ecostyler was the name of the game when it came to mastering the edge lay, however I always found that it would only give me a few hours of hold before my curls began to make a comeback. So I took to the internet in search of a gel with a stronger hold and stumbled upon this 5 star review of the Gorilla Snot Gel…
You definitely didn’t have to tell me twice, I clicked buy in just a matter of seconds and the rest is history!
As for the gel itself there are a few other things I love about it besides its long lasting hold. For one there’s it’s inexpensive price point at just £4.97 for 350g, and then we have its delicious scent. One thing I noticed only after buying the gel, is that Alcohol is one of its top three ingredients, which is a little too high up for my liking, despite this I’ve decided to continue using the gel as I haven’t had any adverse reactions. Plus I usually rinse the gel off when I wash my face before bed so it’s a win win situation.
I’m pretty sure there are a dozen more of it’s kind but until another gel steals the limelight, I’m in a long term relationship with this and there will be no break ups! If you need some more convincing I filmed a short video review and included some clips of the gel in all of its glory. Let me know what you think!
Has anyone else tried this or any other gels you just can’t live without?
[P.s I’ll be away with hubby for a few days and therefore absent from the blog, till my next post, have a wonderful weekend!]
