Men’s hair is different from women’s, and most men prefer scents that are far different than the abundance of fruity, floral, sweet smells in women’s styling gels. Most hair styling gels made specifically for men have a musk, clean scent – or no scent at all. They also tend to be heavily formulas for a firm, long-lasting style, to build body and hold flyaways in place. Men’s styling gel is a great product for unique hairstyles, like mohawks, highly textured waves, curls, and to give fine, thin hair a thicker and fuller appearance (with the right formula and application). A little tends to go a long way, so even a small tube or bottle should last months, and most cost less than $15.
