How do you do the wet effect on your hair?

Applying gel, gel or wax with a shiny finish. Once the hair is impregnated, it is combed with a comb or by hand to define the desired shape. You can work on the texture and shape of the hair while it’s wet to get the style you prefer. Thus, you can leave it completely smooth or give some texture to the finish. 

Finally, let your hair air dry or use a blow dryer with a diffuser to speed up the process. If necessary, you can set the hairstyle by applying a little more product or using a setting spray to ensure the look stays in place.

What can I use instead of hair gel?

You can use both gel or wax, because they are very similar. The difference is in their ingredients and their purpose: hair gel works better on short hair and gives a wet look to the hair, while wax helps tame long and even rebellious hair better, and can have a matte, normal finish. or with shine.

How to use hair gel for women?

The hair gel is first applied to the palms of the hands and spread evenly through wet hair. The wax can be applied dry or wet by warming the product by rubbing it between your hands so that it does not become caked.

On straight hair , it is best to apply the wax or gel from the roots to the middle and leave the hair dry from the middle to the ends to gain density in the finish.
