I’ve been having to gel my hair quite a bit now due to longer hair, I’m not asking for brands of gel, but rather, how to apply it. Here’s some questions.

  1. Perhaps it’s the brand I’m using, but it seems like gel wears off sometime around late morning to noon. Is there some secret to fix that?

  2. Is it better to shower at night or morning not only for the body, but for the hair.

  3. How much gel is too much? I usually get a few blobs about the size of my thumb fingernail.

  4. Major problem’s been around the center of my spiral, hair seems to fly up and fly around a bit and it itches. I’ve been slapping gel in that area a lot and it doesn’t help.
