I've been living without gel for the past idk how many years. Now school's finished I can do what I want to my hair without any no-gel rule. But I haven't been using gel, rather just plain water. I have an impression that ordinary gel makes my hair hard, and the "stay-wet" gels and mousse will smudge onto clothes. Is that true? Not really a "sticky situation" but I'd just like to know whether gelling your hair is part of your morning routine.
