My husband has tried hundreds of gels since he first began to style his own hair and hundreds have ended up in the bin. Sadly this is one of them. This gel has the typical pleasant Fructis scent and it does indeed have strong hold but the texture on his hair was so thick it never seemed to set. He says that his hair felt like it has a greasy feel to it after using this gel. Whilst this would not have normally prevented him continuing use his biggest complaint was washing it out of hair at the end of the day. It would take two shampoos to remove it as he ‘quotes’ “it turned to slime when the water hit my hair”! Also after continued use his occasional bouts of dandruff returned and upon site of this gel went straight in the bin! My husband has short hair so quite honestly w would dread to think what a mess this would cause on longer hair?? May be a good gel for some but for my husband it got the huge thumbs down!

My son used this for his hair and although it does the job he has used better products for around the same price.
The packaging looks attractive and the gel smells quite nice but only an average hair gel im afraid

Strongest points
Lasts all day, smells wonderful
Weakest points
Very sticky once it starts to dry and if you got caught in the rain it ran down your face
Summary
I used this on my son when he went through a phase of having spiked hair.
It lasted all day as long as he did not put a hat on or his hood up.
He got caught in the rain and the gel ran down his face stinging his eyes.
