Hair is of particular importance to us. It is an expression of beauty and individuality, but can also show affiliation to a culture or group. To keep the hair in shape, there are certain auxiliary means to make sure that the hairstyle is perfect and will stay that way for a certain time. Besides hairspray, hair gel is certainly one of the most important products to achieve this goal. Modern hair gel must meet high requirements. On the one hand it has to be extremely strong, moisture-resistant and should provide long-lasting hold; on the other hand it should not lead to sticky hands or sticky hair.
