What would be a good hair gel to use that holds?

As title states...........I have been using bumble and bumble sumo tech wax for years but switched up my hairstyle to more of a clean cut business hairstyle.

So what would be a good brand of hair gel that holds well during the day and gives you that wet look? Also, I need a hair gel that does not flake off because it would look unprofessional.

Thanks for your guys opinions.

When I used to gel my hair, I used this. Lasts all day, doesn't flake, relatively strong and not greasy looking. I have very thick and coarse hair though so either I would blow dry to shape or use gatsby pink/other wax to shape and mix it with a bit of this stuff for the shine. So much easier with wax+gel though.

I use gatsby pink and very happy with it.

The fruitics one flaked for me..

Sometimes we tend to be in despair when the person we love leaves us, but the truth is, it's not our loss, but theirs, for they left the only person who couldn't give up on them.

Make the effort and take the risk..

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

L'oreal stuff is pretty good and is widely available. I use Studio Line Matt & Messy - lv4 hold which is pretty good, they also have a lv4 with the wet look you want. Or check out Studio Line Indestructible - lv 5 hold.

I have used Fructis and don't like it but it does hold better than l'oreal lv4 stuff.

Another vote for the American Crew products. Expensive as shit though.

Can be found on sale in Nordstrom Rack sometimes.

Layrite is good, but not the best. I only use it cuz I bought a 32oz tub on Amazon for cheap :P

Try out suavetico. Friend said they hold the same as layrite but are generally much cheaper. Their extra/super hold one is only $16 from Barber & Co by Burrard Stn.

I have a pompadour type of haircut and I just switched to gatsby moving lotion. It's somewhat like a gel, gives a wet look, but does not dry and flake. The hold on this is amazing too and lasts me all day. My hair is thick and quite hard so if this works for me it would definitely work for someone with softer hair. (If I use pomade or any kind of wax/clay I need a lot of hairspray just to keep my hair in place)
The best product I have ever used in my life, hands down.

When I used gel, I had ShortSexyHair by SexyHair. Guess it's been discontinued now, since it's not on their site.

Never flaked, great hold, but hard to find and probably expensive. I just got hookups at the salon I went to since the owner was friends with my mom.
