HAIR gels are still a thing.
While most have been using pomades and waxes to style their hair these days, some are still keeping it old-school by using gels to keep their manes in place.
One of the best gel brands in the market, Stylex, has recently relaunched its Styling Gel with a new ambassador, Pinoy YouTuber Lincoln Cortez Velazquez. Cortez, more popularly known as "Cong," is someone Stylex feels every Filipino can relate to. His YouTube channel, CongTV, has over 1.7 million subscribers.
Cong is confident that the brand is perfect for everyone. Whether you're a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, it's the best way to keep you looking sharp on and off the court.
While waxes can only be used once hair is towel-dried, Styling Gel can be applied on damp, or even wet hair. It's perfect for people rushing off to school, work, or a pick-up basketball game.
It's got Hold
Styling Gel will keep your hair neat and clean, even if you're doing the dirty work on the court. “Pwedeng-pwede. Kung gusto nila yung ganito na matigas lang na steady na kahit pawisan sila, yung itsura nila sa court, swag pa din, ‘di ba,” Cong says. “Hindi talaga [gagalaw], not unless galawin mo. Ako kasi, based on my experience, pwede talaga, possible,” he adds.
Styling Gel is definitely cheaper compared to waxes or pomades. A 125-gram container of Styling Gel Extreme Hold sells for only P27. “Pang masa talaga siya,” Cong concludes.
