Having long hair can be fun, but it can also be a lot of work. Gone are the days up just waking up and brushing my hair. I have to really put effort into my hair to prevent it from becoming dried out, hard and brittle. I’m always in search of hair products, especially gels, that can keep my curls defined without being too hard and flaky. I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite men’s product brands, Old Spice, to put their new product line to the test.
The Old Spice Hair lineup – including new Swagger Gel – features shampoos, conditioners and styling products designed to give guys the hair and confidence they need to succeed.
After seeing the line-up I was intrigued by their Old Spice Swagger Gel, so I gave it a try.
I washed my hair as normal, shampoo and conditioner. I then pat dried my hair to remove the excess water. At this point, I took a quarter size of the Old Spice Swagger Gel and worked it into my hair, starting at the ends of my hair and working it to root.
*For best results, work a small amount of Old Spice Swagger Gel through damp or dry hair and style.
I was highly impressed with the definition and shine it gave my curls. The Old Spice Swagger Gel offer guys the #smellegendary manly scent they want plus high hold and moderate shine for hair that doesn’t try too hard.
One of my good friends saw my hair after and told me that he now has hair envy. So, thumbs up in my book!
Check out some tips below from Old Spice and Celebrity Groomer, Benjamin Thigpen
“As a grooming expert, I’m so excited to team up with Old Spice to help introduce new Swagger Gel that’s designed for guys looking for high hold and a moderate shine. Let’s face it, guys want hair that looks like it’s not trying too hard, and Old Spice Swagger Gel does just that! Simply rub a nickel size amount on your fingertips and work into your hair for that ultimate rockstar look.” – Benjamin Thigpen, Celebrity Groomer
How to Combat “Hat Hair”
Start with Old Spice Swagger Gel – Simply apply a small amount (no more than nickel size) to your fingertips and rub together before applying to the hat line.
Keep it Dry – Make sure your hair is completely dry and styled before wearing the hat. Otherwise, your hair will flatten and take the hat’s shape when wet.
Hat Indentation Quick Fix – Use your fingertips to press and start rubbing the hat line out. Think of your fingertips as an eraser!
Water Works – In a pinch and without product? Wet your hands with water and flick excess off. Start with a small amount because you can’t unwet your hair. Remember, it’s just a quick touch up!
Hats Off to Hats – Many guys wear hats on a daily basis, and hats can also be cleverly used as a styling tool. They work great to bring down hair volume, or to help keep Swagger-styled hair in place from home to your destination.
