Question: "What's the best product to use to style my hair in the a.m.? Gel, styling cream, or hairspray?"
Answer: Ah...so many hair products, so much confusion. For best results, brush a dime-size drop of a lightweight styling cream through damp locks. "Most contain a small amount of silicone to smooth the hair shaft, which will leave you with a polished look regardless of your hair type," says Nathaniel Hawkins, celebrity stylist for Tresemme. Gels are a good option if you have very coarse or curly hair.
Hairspray, however, is best left for restyling dry hair, such as when you're transitioning from the office to a big night out.
