Unless you’re a curly-haired person, hair gel may not be on your regular list of hair care items, but we’re here to make the case for the sticky stuff in your routine. Hair gel has barely evolved from the 1960s pomade and Dep glue that greasers and Elvis donned or the 80’s blue gel fave LA Looks, and they are all laden with harsh chemicals. Many avoid gel because of the “rock hard” or crunchy feeling that is common with products on the mainstream market, and instead opt for hair oils, de-frizzers, or hair sprays for light hold. We developed an all-natural plant-based hair gel that is really made for everyday use and is packed with botanicals and marine extracts.
Sailor by Captain Blankenship Jellyfish Hair Gel is an all-star in that it can be used as a de-frizz treatment or to create style and hold. With organic aloe vera as its main ingredient, the hold is light and adds sheen to hair. It’s also alcohol-free which is a concern for those using pomades or gels frequently as alcohol is extremely drying.
How to Use All Natural Hair Gel
Lightly work it through wet hair and allow to air-dry for smooth locks with a slight wave and zero “crunch.” To add to dry hair, rub a small amount between palms and work through hair, either flattening down flyaways, or scrunching curls depending on the look you’re going for.
If you’re like us and don’t wash every day, this gel is definitely for you because it doesn’t create build up. Use it a few days in a row along with Mermaid Dry Shampoo, and your hair will absorb the nourishing ingredients and look better every day - seriously.
For men’s looks, use as you would a wax or traditional gel. Add to wet or dry hair and use a comb or fingers to style.
Now, don’t forget to toss that pot of blue stuff!
