    I use Black and White pomade, it's the best out there that I'm aware of. As far as I'm concerned gel sucks, I like to be able to fix my hair if it gets messed up... gel provides almost zero flexibility. What do you prefer? Gel or pomade?

    OK, I never thought I would give my secret away, but in the spirit of Christmas:

    I style my hair with 100% natural aloe vera gel

    It's fantastic! What's so cool is that it styles just like gel but is much, much lighter, and it washes out super easily. It has no horrible smell, etc.

    For shampoo, I use Pantene something. I don't shampoo every day, and I'm not a firm believer in paying a lot for shampoo. I don't buy into these ideas that shampoos can perform all these miracles--they're only touching your hair (which is dead) for about 30 seconds.

    I wet mine, let it air dry and then hit it with a little Frizz Ease Dream Curls to hold down the frizz, cause the chicks can't keep their hands out of my 'fro ;)

    I use this in my hair to style it, but I find it to be a little more thick than I like and the girl who does my hair adds some stuff to it that to make it more flexible...Anyone have any recommendations of what to use to soften shaping creme

    Brylcreem leaves hair really soft and manageable. That stuff is wonderful. Black and white leaves hair pretty soft also, but not quite as manageable, but it holds a little tighter than Brylcreem does. Murray's Superior is a really versatile pomade thats cheap and great for about anything.

    I use a special gel made by Schwarzkopf...a little tiny bit keeps my horribly resilient hair up all day and it smells great.

    I use a sea salt spray (from this range) before blow-drying my hair and then some "matte paste" (same range again) and hair spray to keep it in shape all day long.

    I had hair once, but it was so long ago that I have forgotten what I used in it...

    I'm a woman but...
    when my hair was short I used to use the black and white wax/pomade stuff. It's great to keep it how you want it.

    But, now my hair is longer I just use the good old shampoo and blow dryer (and maybe some straighteners if I'm going out) and that suits me well.

    I used to put gel on it, now I just straighten it to get it layered looking and add a few whisps here and there. My hair is too naturally straight :eek:

    I use Paul Mitchell "Dry Wax". I have blonde hair and any type of gel makes it look wet/sticky. The wax gives it some texture and a nice messy look. I go for the straight out of bed look.

    I've also tried Sebastien's Crude Clay, which is similar to above.
