Hi, my name is Tenisha, and today I'm going to give you some tips on how to use styling gel in your hair. Styling gel is one of the most used tools, well it's not actually a too , but it's a concoction that we use in our hair. It doesn't matter your hair texture, your hair color, if you have no hair like me, you can still use a little bit of styling gel. So we're going to take our beautiful model here and I'm going to show you how to use styling gel in it. The most important thing you can do with styling gel is evenly distribute it in your hair, you never want to take a big glunk of gel and just slap it in your hair because no matter how hard you try it's not going anywhere it's going to stay right there. You're going to take your styling gel and you're going to use a small amount to start and you're going to work it in to your hair just work it through, work it through, work it through. And you want an even distribution so it depends on what you're using your styling gel for you maybe using it to make a pony tail, to make a slick down, you may comb over it, you may not want to, but if it's something you're going to like say, comb into a pony tail, you want to take the gel and you want to work it through the hair as follows. All around, evenly distributing it, only putting more on your hand if you need more gel obviously. You're going to take it, you're going to work it all around getting it evenly through, a little more of the gel on the hands, work it through. Same on the other side using the same amount of gel. Let's just go ahead and do a simple pony tail. So after you put the gel in your hair you're going to take your brush and you're going to comb it making sure that it's not more on one side than the other just because you don't see the gel doesn't mean that it's not there. Evenly distribute it all the way around and you could just take your little clip, what ever you're going to use to make your pony tail. So we finished our pony tail, we have our gel evenly distributed and you see an area that you forgot, no big deal, gel is great, a little more gel helps, squeeze it out and you just work it where you need it. Styling gel is wonderful, I love it myself. My name is Tenisha, and I've answered your questions on how to use styling gel.
