The Extra Clean Gel is a product that’s unlike most others. Extremely easy to apply and work through the hair due to its light, liquid texture, it sets as it dries to leave a light hold, a dry look and feel, but a subtle glossy finish that enhances the natural colour and texture of the hair.
It’s a genuinely catch-all hair product, and that’s why we love it so much. It works brilliantly for those with fine or thinning hair due to its lack of stickiness, which means it won’t cause clumping. But it’s also a great choice for a man with thicker or curly hair, due to its ease of application. The natural-looking shine it imparts makes your hair look healthy and strong, meaning for those with coarse, dry, or even damaged hair, it’s a very smart choice. In general, men with fairer hair may be inclined to stay away from non-matte products to avoid a ‘wet look’ finish, but with the Extra Clean Gel, this isn’t something you have to worry about.
Finally, like the Thickening Pomade, using the gel as a pre-styler can give some incredible results. Its light hold and healthy shine are a great way to add lift and texture to the hair, which, when combined with a higher hold product such as a wax or clay, helps to maximise volume and get the most out of your look.
